Easter Sunday Surprise

Maybe I should have posted this yesterday since it was closer to Sunday, but I really wanted to complain about being home instead. lol. Anyway, I posted back in July about my disappointment with how no one seemed to care about the 4th, and how disgusted I was with the commercialism going on when it should have been a day to celebrate out country's independence. So imagine my shock, surprise, marvel when we went to dinner in a restaurant at the mall and everything was closed! Well, not the restaurant, but the stores were closed. Or most of them, anyway. Barnes and Noble and Sears were open. But nothing else. Even Bennigans was closed, which surprised me since it's a restaurant and almost everyone in town was out for lunch. I know many commercial places close for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I didn't think they still closed for Easter. I was very pleased, to say the least, and filled with hope that not all is lost in America after all. :)

That said, while we were eating our lunch, I suddenly felt terribly guilty for being there. I know, the restaurant would have been open regardless of whether I went or not. I'm just one. But if all of us "just ones" had stayed home and cooked, then all those poor folks who had to work their little bunny tails off on Sunday could have been home with their families. I don't know where I'll be next year or what my life will be like. But I hope I remember this guilt and do the right thing and cook for my family next Ressurection Sunday. :)

So, totally changing the subject here, does anyone know what html code to put in and where, to make the middle of my blog a little wider? Yeah, I know. The only time I'll ever want my middle to be thicker. lol. But my brand new Shelfari shelf (hint, hint, take a look at my books!) is way too thin. I want more books to show, so I want the content part of my blog to be larger. If anyone can give me a few tips or advice on how to change it, I'll be eternally grateful.

Have a great day everyone.

Blogger HTML is unlike anything I've every seen, so I can't help you there. Sorry.

And, re: easter -- yep, I really try to stay home on most holidays. Having worked food service for much of my life, I always hated not being able to spend those days with my family. I try to stay home ALL Sunday's actually, though it doesn't always work that way.

Have a great day!
