Reality Check

Easter is THIS WEEK!! We had Christmas in our house but that was just days after moving in and we where simply happy a tree was up and my parent's had the forethought to mail us gifts to put under it (we didn't gift shop for our girls until Christmas Eve due to the crazy move and stomach bug).  Easter is a big deal to me. As big as Christmas and I want to go all out!

That is simply not going to happen. First Zizzy stopped sleeping at night. So in my sleepless haze my house has deteriorated to a junk heap. Lulu's Godfather(Daniel) who always joins us for the first time in 4 years will not be able to make it. I have a messy house, no baking done, and I am feeling sorry for myself because I will not get to see Daniel this year. To make matters worse I woke up this morning with a slight stomach bug. Needless to say I have been having a major pity party.

While I am wining on the phone to my mother about how bad I feel the topic turns to my brother and his wife (J&J). J&J have 6 children; 5 of whom have a stomach bug that causes vomiting and diarrhea for up to a week; and the 6th is a 1-year-old with RSV and currently in the hospital. If that is not bad enough today is the birthday of the eldest. They are not sure she will be able to participate in her birthday celebration; they had purchased a horse back riding lesson for her.

Yeah..... suddenly my problems sound like nothing. I have time to clean house by Easter Sunday. I have a Betty Crocker Gluten Free cake mix and a gluten free cookie mix. If nothing else we can have those here and still enjoy all the wonderful festivities at my in-laws.
