I wanted to reblog this today to celebrate the fact that so far no one has vomited today. ENJOY!

We got flooded at Thanksgiving last year and then we had bronchitis and other family disasters at Christmas time. We’ve endured a lot of complicated living situations and crud, so I figured a really fun Easter might turn things around. I was prepared; I had the eggs, the Easter baskets, enough chocolate to put us all in a diabetic coma, adorable Easter cards made and photos taken. I talked the kids into being excited about the Easter bunny, or at least remembering that there is something called an Easter bunny, which they only understood in a vague way. This was going to be the best motherfucking Easter ever. (just like the best motherfucking Christmas ever.. sigh, I should have known).

Then on Wednesday night just as I was drifting off to sleep, early for once after weeks of being an idiot watching episodes of Mad Men all night long…

    1. It’s true; I have learned to set he bar really really low over the years and then I have no trouble at all just stepping over it and feeling rather pleased with myself! Hope your easter weekend was also pleasant and vomit-free!

  1. Well, I certainly think that’s a wonderful thing to celebrate. I believe that if each of us could learn to appreciate the small things in life and celebrate them, we would be far happier. I will, therefore, join you in celebrating as not one of my animals has vomited today either!

  2. I feel your pain on trying to make next holiday arfter flooding better in 2007 we got flooded and 6 months in Hotel four months then in beddsit. To be moved into flat where 3 years we lived there got broken into 13 time saw two stabbings over 100 drug deals and gun loaded dumped on pathway by my door. That to sart so moved into one room at my mums so had Christmas planned to be best ever. And remind my self like hope you do at least we know at end of all we are still a family. And had the low high should be soon.

    1. Holy moly! That is a lot of chaos in your temporary “home”. While it’s painful, I am glad that’s behind you (or at least I hope it is). I know for me, it made me appreciate what I do have, even if it’s something small like a really good cup of coffee or that I was never entirely homeless, even though it felt that way sometimes. My kids definitely pulled me through that period of time too; despite everything they were always happy and excited, and that made all the difference for us. Fortunately, they were also young enough not to remember it at all, so they won’t have my mental breakdown permanently seared into their head. I hope. 😉
