But, in true form of this year,
Stomach bug. It was a doozy. It started with poor Lucy who didn't understand why she was sick all night long. But it was about a whole week per person. Stomach issues all week. The poor children. It was awful.
Tommy took the older 2 to my favorite liturgy, the Easter Vigil. I went to Mass in the morning all alone. I was so tired, and so overwhelmed, that I sat in my car and cried and cried after Mass. It was the second big Holy Day that I went to Mass on my own. Some mothers would relish the time alone, and I am just weird I guess.
But, in true shutterbug form, I made them pose for pictures before they hunted for eggs. It wasn't the worst day of the bug for them, so they did all hunt.
And the Easter candy lasted a lot longer in the house this year.
