...cue ominous music

The family is descending tomorrow. We will be "celebrating Easter" all weekend. As completely non-religious people this includes dyeing eggs with the kiddoes, possibly going sledding, and eating lots of ham and smoked salmon. I have been maniacally cleaning my house all week in preparation.

Does that make sense? I'm about to have a horde of people including toddlers descend upon my peaceful home and my first instinct is to clean. Should be fun though. Friday night is egg-dyeing, Saturday is sledding (depending on the weather) and who knows what else, and Sunday is egg-hunting! We've all been trying to get some little stuff for Easter baskets that is less than completely candy-centric so I picked up bubbles and sidewalk chalk - I figure that's what I would have liked when I was that age (an excuse to play outside).

Updates/photos will be forthcoming based on whether I survive or not. And all the garden prep I did may be for nothing if it is rainy all weekend like it is looking to be right now...

Cleaning is exactly the right instinct. I get it all the time when I'm expecting company or celebrating a big occaision, too. My husband thinks I'm crazy but preparation is all a part of it. Have fun! Looks like you've been doing great things with the yard. Would love to see more pics!

Is it? It seems like an exercise in futility though - I'm about to have 20 people in my house and I'm going to have to clean it all again after they go...

I second the pictures! I would love to see what you are doing with the yard. I got to dig yesterday- the dirt is still really cold (and sort of frozen in the shade) and I actually saw a snow pile today- but that is not going to stop me. I want spring!!!
Have a great Easter with the family!
