how did i know this would happen? start to feel sick for home after mom leaves from visiting me. she should have never come. maybe this is all because my first holiday away from home is up and coming soon. no easter basket. no tag-team cooking. no funny grandfather. no hiding eggs for cute niece and nephew. no lovable great-grandmother. probably her last easter. no post-dinner snacking. no dogs happy to be let inside after all the guests have gone, sniffing around the table for crumbs like canine vacuum cleaners. no family photo ops. not really a bad thing, right?
