First things first. Hi. Happy Easter. Happy Spring Break? This begins our week. I get excited, because I have big dreams for road trips and fun in the sun, but April in New England is rather tricky. We can have a blizzard. Or, it can be 86 degrees like it was yesterday for Easter. Cassidy’s birthday is in mid-April and he can remember hot/cold birthdays. Our anniversary is April 26th, and sure enough, I can remember wearing a winter coat as late as then, and I’ve worn sundresses on our anniversary too. We had our wedding in late April because the rates were off the chart cheaper than having a wedding in May – wedding season – but we tried to get it as close to May as possible. It snowed the weekend before and the weekend after our wedding.

Our wedding? It was overcast all morning and then beautifully 65 and partly sunny. Like this:

Avocado Egg Salad

Easter was.. a little weird. We were winding up the “best week of our lives.” It was good. Best week of our lives? Maybe in some small and powerful ways. Getting baby chicks. Celebrating Cassidy’s birthday so closely, and without kids. Getting more page views for ONE POST than I swear I’ve gotten for several consecutive months. That leads to new opportunities, of course, in my dream career. Still, I woke up on Easter Sunday and I was off. I think it was a mix of allergies, dehydration, being overtired, and being nervous/stressed. I woke up dizzy. Do you ever wake up dizzy? It can be terrifying and nausea-inducing.

It used to happen to me about once a year. NOT bad. Now it’s about once every 2-4 years. Whooo! I’m now home free?

spring awakening

What do you do when you’re dizzy? For me, I drink water and put my head down. I also lean both hands on something solid. I take deep breaths, maybe even use a little lavender oil, and focus on just one thing. It might be as silly as a game on my phone, or editing a difficult photo. All I know is that nothing was going to stop me from watching and enjoying the kids opening their Easter baskets. They were SO happy. And we were happy we pulled off the magic for another year.

Here’s to many more!

Easter

By late morning I was feeling completely back to normal, although drowsy from dizzy and unsettled sleep. We hadn’t seen one of my mothers-in-law in FOUR months. She came over with my father-in-law and we set right to work dying Easter eggs.

Then we celebrated all that we had missed in the last four months – birthdays, St. Patrick’s Day, etc. – with corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, carrots, homemade cole slaw, beet salad, snowflake rolls with homemade honey butter, and leftover birthday cake and ice cream. Then we played outside for hours, and played with the baby chicks for a bit. We don’t want to overstimulate them, but I think getting them comfortable with us is important too. One sat in my hand for five minutes today and I wasn’t holding her. I had my hand resting on the floor of the chicken nursery, and she sat companionably with/on me.

We get three more tomorrow!
