WHAT DID ALL YOU MOM'S DO FOR MOTHER'S DAY?
I took my dogs for a wlak and Skyped with my daughter
What a day! It actually started last night. DH, our two sons and I went to dinner with my parents, my grandmother and my sister and two of her kids who are visiting from out of State. It was a wonderful evening! We woke up this morning and we all met at a bowling alley and bowled (or attempted) for a couple hours....had a blast!! Then, Dh and our sons took me to lunch then to my favorite nursery, where we purchased lots of flowers! We arrived home...and voila! Gifts! They gave me 3 super cute plant stands.....a bike, a chair and a heart....complete with pots. As an added bonus, my 18 yr old presented me with proof (and 100%) of completion of his final HS class....he was taking an online college class instead of attending school this term because he only needed .5 credit to graduate. Yay! On to college in the fall! We planted all the flowers! It was a wonderful, family day!
My 6 year old g.d. spent last night at my house. She asked me last night if she could make me breakfast for mothers day (sweetie!!!), so we stopped and got ingredients for smoothies. She made those and I scrambled some eggs. Then we watched a movie (Open Season), and then went out to lunch - local Indian buffet. Then on to my daughter's, to hang out for the afternoon. Then I made dinner for them, with the help of same g.d. We had a very nice day!
Had a very nice relaxing day :)

Went to the in-laws for BBQ burgers and sausages, then on to work. ODS says he is taking me out to lunch on Monday if he doesn't have to work.
I worked. lol. Johnny sent me a $20 gift certificate to Cheesecake Factory - kid remembers cheesecake is my absolute favorite! Then he called me and we chatted for about 30 minutes, about his upcoming graduation, classes, how he is doing with his seizures, etc. I told him I had no clue what to get him for graduation. He asked if maybe Gma and Gpa would buy him a car. lol. I said probably not. But that might be what I end up getting him for graduation ... well, as soon as I can swing the extra payments, which should not be an issue one he can support himself. So we'll see. Then I went over to my parents to visit Mom and stayed a few hours. My daughter called to wish me a Happy Mother's day after sending me a funny Hoops and Yoyo Hallmark ecard. Then I came back home and ended up working until 7 pm. All in all a nice day.
We started Saturday evening when DH took me to dinner and a movie (The Avengers) after working all day in the yard. Sunday the kids came over for a cookout and just to relax as it was a beautiful day. I received some new flowers/plants for my garden, some Yankee candles and a baby turtle for my pond. After the kids went home DH & I just relaxed and watched a movie.
Went to church and then came home and laid on the bed and watched tv and dosed a little bit then went out to dinner. It was a pretty good day.
