How’d you spend your Easter?

13 04 2009

To sum mine up: 2 planes, 2 hours in the air, 3ish hours in the aiport, 5 hours with my family, and 1 big surprise.

I don’t know about you guys, but Easter is just another excuse for my family to throw a party. Naturally, I was disappointed when I was missing yet another family function because I live here in Chicago and they all live in Pittsburgh.

I miss the food, the gossip, and the all around chaos that comes with being around my family. I missed out on Christmas because I spent it with Chris’ family. So facing another holiday away from them (and even worse: by myself ) was really depressing.

Needless to say, after spending most of friday and saturday moping Chris bought me a plane ticket so I could spend the day with my family. He tried to convince me to leave Saturday night, but I was having dinner with Jamie and I didn’t want to miss out on that. I booked the first flight out and the last flight home.

The best part: no one except my brother knew I was coming in. My mom was utterly stunned. My family was ecstatic. I have video of their reactions, it’s awesome. I can’t wait to post the video.

So how was your Easter? Did you overindulge in the festive food and candy?
