No colored eggs for us...

Easter was umm... not all that exciting around here. I didn't even have any jellybeans. I thought about it many times over, but I did not indulge. I didn't even have any Easter candy until I went to my mom's where I had 4 plain ol chocolate eggs. Whoopeee! Something is wrong with me these days, I have been craving chocolate and well, I don't really like it much to be honest. I was even willing to eat some chocolate bunny pound cake thing that my aunt made, very dry but it had a good flavor if you like chocolate, Which I don't! I love chocolate covered things like carmels, toffee, mints, strawberries... but just regular old chocolate--blech! Could these cravings mean that I have working female hormones again? LOL! Doubt it.

Seriously, we were the heathens of the family and didn't even go to church. DH had a strange weekend where he slept and had a headache all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday. We don't play around with his headaches and his extra sleep needs due to his epilepsy/seizure disorder diagnosis. Plus he was asking about strange smells which is never a good sign. Luckily, no seizures were noticed and no grand mals were had so phew... but Easter, it was a drag.

Besides, I had to have a "what's the point without kids" meltdown during the weekend too, which didn't help matters. Every time I think I am getting past this, something else pops up to remind me that I am not. I am seriously considering finding a therapist to help us with the decision because all I get on the other side is "It is out of our control" and well, I don't believe that entirely anymore.

Seriously though, from all of the pictures I have seen recently... when did the Easter Bunny get so big and scarey?

Ha--I have that same thought about the Easter Bunny when I've seen the kids going to sit on his lap at the mall. Scary rabbit.

I think the therapist could be a great idea. I know talking things out always helps me figure out how I feel about things. Bring clarity to things.

In my old age I've developed a lot more fears than I had when I was a kid: clowns (creepy!) and people dressed up in costumes that completely obliterate their identity, such as the EI'aster Bunny. Maybe it's too many horror flicks, but I have no idea why I didn't go running for the hills as a kid whenever I saw a mascot. I shudder to even think about it.

I've also considered therapy. I think a good therapist can make a huge positive impact.

You know I think therapy can be a godsend....just make sure you click with the therapist, and if not, try another til you do.
