March 31, 2018: Returning

Today is a quiet afternoon in Paterson. I first went to visit my mother’s gravesite in Clifton. I’m glad that I got to spend more time to visit her, especially since my time was so limited last weekend. It was so nice to see the lilacs I picked up for her blooming.

Andy and I are currently in our family’s house. They’re out running errands, so we’re sitting in the living room watching the Mets game. So many memories come to mind as I sit in the living room. I grew up in this house, spent many hours in this living room reading and watching tv. Now I visit, but I never tire of coming here. As long as my family still lives here, I will come back.

March 30, 2018: End of Week Thoughts

A few thoughts as I’m getting ready for work:

  • I really like Blueberry flavored coffee! Andy and I visited 7-11 yesterday morning before I went to work to have some. He’s has Blueberry coffee in the past and really enjoyed it. I still love going to Wawa for coffee, but the Blueberry coffee 7-11 has tastes really good.
  • Tomorrow I can’t forget to give my niece her Easter basket. She’s going to have her Easter Bunny gift a day early. I don’t think she’ll mind though. I still remember when I visited her when she was a baby, and all she wanted to do was play with the grass in the basket. Never mind the gift I got for her in the basket. It was truly adorable.
  • I’m happy that I’ve kept up with this blog as long as I have. I still aim to post twice a day. Perhaps that’s a goal for me as April comes near. We’ll see.

March 29, 2018: Preparing for Easter

In a couple days I’m visiting my family in Paterson. It will be wonderful to see them again. Usually Easter weekend is a little complicated with regards to length of time in seeing family. I spend a good amount of time with my family for Thanksgiving and Christmas, yet Easter is the only time I haven’t visited as much. My grandparents never seemed to mind, yet it’s changed in recent years. So I make it a point to visit on Holy Saturday, since Andy’s family always hold traditions on Easter Sunday which they need his assistance in carrying out.

Tomorrow is going to be very active in Andy’s house, since his niece and nephew will be over to paint Easter eggs with his sister. I still have work, so I’ll be around the flurry of activity by the time I get home. Easter with his family is very active, but it’s nice to have a close gathering such as this one during major holidays. It’s great to see family come together and share for a short time.
