Thanks.... I know it's really tough on my mom, especially since her father passed away in October. I was/am not close to my grandparents on that side, so I'm fine, just sad for my mom, mainly. I had to miss my grandpa's funeral; I hope that I will be able to go with my mom to my grandma's funeral.I'm sorry about your your grandma, but I'm glad your mom got to see her.
It's definitely a weird mix of feelings, isn't it? Disappointment, for me, in that I had nowhere to go, but coupled with relief and a feeling of freedom. If it adds any solidarity, I did not do anything either. My kids were out in Ohio with my ex-in-laws, I can't go to my parents, my friend who I usually can go visit for the weekend was away with family, and I just didn't try to call a lot of people to make plans, I just wasn't feeling like investing so much this year.
Instead, I cleaned my basement, did laundry, cleaned some of the kitchen, and watched a movie.
My Easter meal was a smoked tuna sandwich at 10pm. But at least the prep time was minimal!
About celebrating Easter, I didn't so much feel disappointment... I really didn't feel like doing anything big, especially since I've pretty much decided recently that I'm agnostic. But I did still feel kind of..... empty, I guess, mixed with relief... and almost a bit of rebellion. Very weird.

Last time I cute myself was slicing a pat of butter to put on something cut my finger and got it all over my shirt so I had to soak my shirt in the bathroom sink, and people were amazed that I managed to cut myself that bad with a simple butter knife.Perfectly robust chickens

That was weird. I felt really hungry..... Made a big dinner. Took about 3-4 bites and felt full.“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

I wish I had communicated with my friends today. Now I'm stuck brooding over Sun Tzu. I mean, sure, his words help me on the determination side, but I want comfort as well.
