i have to get work done and pack my suitcase and clean my apartment and all of this in just a couple of hours before the spouse arrives. tomorrow we will leave the country for a short easter trip, visiting my aunt and cousin who live abroad. my parents will join us, but they will travel independently.

my aunt has bought a new house a while ago, and we finally want to have a family house warming party. plus my cousin started an apprenticeship at a hotel and wants to show it to us as well.

my grandmother was supposed to accompany us-the trip has been planned since Christmas-but a couple of days ago she told my Mom that she prefers to stay at home. We cannot force her, but it would be so nice if she accompanied us.
