You'll forgive my lack of sympathy over your being asked umpteen million times; you're hardly the first person in the world to experience this. People mean well; learn to deal with it.
wow! I'm so glad Quinn liked the outfit so much! :-)
Thanks for the plug. Ack. A typo on the first page. Sigh. Well, Can't fix tonight.
Noone asked me if I have plans tomorrow, but I do. Tried to tell my grandmom that our visit has nothing to do with easter. It's just the only day between now and vending starts and then school starts that I have free and I haven't seen her since, well, right before my vision went all bonkers so I convinced my sis to meet me in Reading.

Thanks for the plugs! As you know, I don't advertise enough. Mostly a time issue. Did you get any pics of the little fireball?

Mom did...drop her a note ( anneathomas (at) cox (dot) net ) and ask for a copy.
I'm so proud of him! Now that he can dress himself, lets see how good his taste is. :)

he likes M'ia's tie-dyes....

He may just like them because they are from M'ia, and he likes M'ia (I agree with his taste), not because the clothes themselves are cool.

I must admit, it was tempting to start handing out brochures on "the true meaning of Eostre."

Re: never seen that spelling...
The following are random websites that seem to roughly jibe with what I've seen before.http://www.spiritofold.co.uk/wheel_eostre.html
Eostre is another name for the Spring Equinox, when day and night are of equal length. It falls on or around March 21st. Other names include Ostara and Eostar.
In Old England, the Anglo-Saxon name for April was "Eostremonath". Eostre was possibly a Goddess of the Dawn as the word "Eostre" is related to "East". As the Sun risies is the East each day and this is a time of growing light, this is very fitting. The Anglo-Saxon year consisted of two seasons - Summer and Winter. Winter began at Samhain and Summer began at Eostrehttp://www.zenzibar.com/Articles/easter.asp
Easter celebrations were held hundreds of years before Christ was born as festivals of spring honoring Eostre, the great mother goddess of the Saxons. This name was fashioned after the ancient word for spring, Eastre. The goddess Ostara was the Norse equivalent whose symbols were the hare and the egg. From this comes our modern tradition of celebrating Easter with eggs and bunnies.

Re: never seen that spelling...
Heh...in my circles it's mainly referred to as Ostara, wacky neo-pagan sort that I am.
