Easter has Come and Gone, Thank God...

I so enjoyed the Easter Holiday, that I have been sick for 8 DAYS, with the many ups and downs as the family members tried juggling schedules for work, school and life in general, I was beginning to think my 2 week notice of the 4 day "Easter Event" that was to take place here and at my Mothers was going to drive me insane!

And when I say, "EVENT" I am referring to our Daughter and Son-in-Law and 5 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, 1 grandson-in-law, 1 girlfriend of one of my grandsons (I just kept saying to myself, "That is 11 bodies"!!) Our 5 grandchildren are not babies anymore. And one is bringing his girlfriend, and another granddaughter (14 years old!) is mad, because she is not allowed to bring her boyfriend to Grandma's! Oh, Man!! There is not enough money in the world that you could pay me, to try and raise a teenager in these days of instant and now gratification. (I hear you, some of it is the parents fault, but....!)
 If it were not for my Mom, I would not have made it through the 4 day "EVENT"! Mom is my rock. When I grow up, I want to be just like her! Yep, I'm a Great Grandma and guess that ain't a happening anytime soon...
All the shopping, cleaning, toilet scrubbing, dog baths, blanket washing, window washing and on and on, did nothing but put me in a tizzy and set me up for a fantastic cold/allergy mess, that I have not had in at least 7 years... The bright side, I'm done with my Spring Cleaning! AND.........

 I finally got to hold and meet my 2 month old Twin Great Granddaughters!!

Here is my Mom with her 1st Great Great Grandchildren!
I know everyone handles stress and family situations differently, I am not good at all with any of it, hence, that maybe the reason, I only had one child! I still want to believe in Leave it to Beaver families, but it is a lie! There is no such thing as a perfect family and I ain't Martha Stewart, (But I did pull off a pretty damn good ham and mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.)  All in all we had a good time and good food and many good laughs and some cries, so that covers just about what all family holidays are about, Don't you think? Want to share any of your Holiday Horrors? I am linking up here for my first time, join in!
