Uh... It's Easter!
I did the family thing with my family. Sorry, was that obvious? Anyway, I learned something interesting. The older you are, the less you have to do. Unless you're the youngest... then no one expects you to do anything.
For instance, my mom desperately wanted cupcakes for Easter brunch. She cruised through her recipes and finally found one she liked. She presented me with it and asked if I'd bake them. So I did. Yes, not only did I finish reading The Hunger Games yesterday, I baked two dozen cupcakes. Now, cupcakes need icing. It's an unwritten rule or something. Turns out my sister made too much icing last time she made a cake. I unthawed it. Today, my mom came to get me to ice the cupcakes and decorate them. So I did.
I did not think that Easter required cupcakes.
Later, after we finished eating, my grandma guilted me into helping my mom do the dishes. So I did. My grandma sat at the kitchen counter and chatted with us. My sister retreated to the basement and pretended to be asleep.
I think it's a hierarchy thing. The elder has done it forever and finally achieves a period of respite. The younger well, they're coming in to their maturity and so are not expected to contribute. I'm apparently in the breaking in period.
I should say that I'm not complaining. I actually don't mind. Baking was fun and I like chatting with my grandma and goofing off with my mom. Besides, washing a few dishes isn't exactly difficult.
And then I did homework. A pretty well rounded day I think.
