The weekend seemed to pass in a blur…as they all do these days. I would tell you what we did Friday but honestly can’t even remember…..which makes me wonder if I’m developing a brain tumor, dementia or just a serious case of mom brain. None of the above sound promising. Hmmmm…
So on Saturday we woke up and me and the kids headed to my bestie’s garage sale. The boys enjoyed pilfering through all the boxes and managed to snatch a few items for free. I’m not sure they quite understand that you pay for things at a garage sale and don’t just get to walk out with stuff. Perhaps someday they’ll learn. The whole experience was a little sadder than I had planned for. Something about seeing random strangers walk off with your friend’s stuff is a little more of a reality check than I wanted. Ugh…I don’t really have to accept she is moving, right?
Saturday afternoon and evening my sisters and brother n law came over to relieve me of some of my old clothes. We ended up having pizza and enjoyed catching up. The kids were all bouncing off the walls so it made for a chaotic yet perfectly normal evening in our life.
Sunday was Mother’s Day (in case you’ve been living under a rock) and I got to sleep in until nearly 9!!!! This was a HUGE deal considering it has been well over a year since I’ve had the luxury. I didn’t even realize my body could still do that. The boys and man took me out for a nice lunch and we did a quick impromptu grocery shopping trip. I also got some laundry and cleaning done (so much for the pampering) but it was okay cause I felt better and more accomplished anyways. Nothing worse than a pile of laundry to greet me on a Monday morning. No thanks!
By the afternoon I needed some refueling so made a Starbucks run. It was rainy and dreary yesterday so it called for some hot coffee and some time on the couch. Mason helped me finish it off…….this kid is truly a coffee head. They spent the afternoon with their face in their DS…..wait a sec was this Kid’s day?!?! We rarely let them play video games for very long so I figured ….. why not go crazy! The earth didn’t combust so I figured we were okay….just this once.
Sunday evening we had dinner with my parents and siblings. It’s always nice to catch up with everyone and be in the same place. My brother has received several awards from work in the past few weeks, my sister just completed her first month after a big and unexpected promotion and my youngest sister went to her first prom a few days ago….so there’s been a lot of great things happening in the sibling department. Hopefully my momma is proud!
We came home and me and the hubs had some quiet time to ourselves for research. We are looking for a bigger vehicle and it’s been a lot harder than I thought. I always assumed there were more options for bigger vehicles but I was wrong. There are options but 75% of the bigger cars get crappy reviews and I’m just not willing to spend money on something that isn’t going to last. Ugh….such a process. If anyone has any suggestions on a great 7+ passenger vehicle let me know…I’m up for suggestions!
As always Mother’s Day isn’t complete without remembering Sally (my MOL). I would say it’s bittersweet but I think at this point it’s just sweet because it gives us another reason to laugh, talk and remember all the wonderful things about her. Nothing better than that!
Hope you all had a very happy and relaxing Mommy Day! Happy Monday!
