Dear Easter Decorations,
I know, by now, you would be proudly hanging in the windows, sitting on windowsills and otherwise making my house look festive and fun. After St. Patrick's Day, I planned to take you out and hang you up, but guys- this month has been crazy. Today my plan was to put you up and get a full week of Easter festivities in, but let me tell you why you are STILL sitting in the bins, undecorated.
My house was a disaster this morning and you really can't decorate a disaster. Too much clutter everywhere, needing to be cleared before I could put out the pastel eggs, bunnies and baskets. Then, the puppy needed breakfast and a walk. Soon after, I had to shower to get ready for my son's flag football game. My husband, son, daughter, puppy and mom all got to the crowded park and spent an hour watching my son's team try.....but ultimately lose. Not their day. Next, a consolatory trip to Carvel and then drop off my mom and the puppy (she's puppy-sitting this afternoon). After that, dear Easter decorations, it was quick lunch and change to get ready for a walk/run at our local park with friends.
We spent two beautiful hours at the park and got lots of steps in before my children were invited to keep the fun going at a friend's house. So it was drop off the kids, drop off a car, go to my mom's to get the puppy. Then get home, write a blog post and walk over to pick u the kids from play date. Convince the kids it was, indeed, time to go. Get home, order dinner, do some laundry, eat, go for a walk again with the puppy and the kids.
Now? I could start to put them up now but just made a cup of coffee and the houses is still, disaster-ish. Tomorrow, Easter decoration, tomorrow I will put you up. We still have a week to go until Easter!
