We had more of a Mother's day weekend, rather than just one day. Especially since the last time we decided to go out for any sort of meal on Mother's day we ended up waiting for 40 minutes to eat somewhere kind of crappy because they had the shortest wait.
Mom and I went to lunch on Friday instead.
On Sunday, we got up at the butt crack of dawn to pick up J and go to the Y-me walk. We had never been to this one before, so we weren't sure what to expect. We didn't expect to see so many booths and so many giveaways. I swear we left with 2 bags full of stuff. We got pins, and t-shirts, and a water bottle, and snacks galore, and stress balls, and hand sanitizer. We ate bagels and apples and granola and we drank Go Girl and water. (which made for a really fast walk when our bladders wouldn't hold out much longer!)
It felt really good to do the walk, because it confirmed that my time at the gym has been beneficial. The 3 miles was easy, and luckily we were at the front of the pack, and got to walk at a pretty good clip. It took us about 45 minutes or so. We were right around 88, 89, 90, 91 ish. Out of how many, I'm not sure. But there were a ton of people behind us.
When we got home, I made breakfast for mom, who wanted to play an interesting new game called "hide the sausage."
She was reading the box for the sausage, and then she went rooting around in the cupboard for a pan. She put the pan on the stove and then went to check her email. A few minutes later she came back and I was looking for the box of sausage. I didn't see it anywhere, so I had her go look in her room in case she took it with her. But nope, it wasn't there either. So, I decided to get a pan out of the cupboard for the eggs - and the box of sausage was buried under a pan in the cupboard. We laughed till we cried.
Surprisingly, breakfast turned out really yummie (the cinnamon roll appetizer helped a lot). We spent the rest of the day looking through our loot from the walk (hee) and napping. Then mom put up a gazebo canapy thingy in the backyard...and Mark and I helped. We're going to set up our little pool inside. it looks really cute.
Then Mark was going to bbq tri tip for dinner, but we were out of propane (sad!) so I had to cook it inside. Which, was okay, but not as good as when he bbq's. But dinner was good and mom didn't have to cook, so she was happy.
Later in the evening I wasted an hour of my life watching the series finale of 7th Heaven. Did anyone else watch it? OMG could it have sucked any more?! Didn't they say they were going to meet up with old faces? How about, oh, their kids?! Or you know, anyone but the same stupid people that they've showed this season? Oh wait, there was a new face. Some random guy who didn't even bring clothes. What the hell?!
Did anyone else think that the show would have been better if the stupid dad really was still sick and just never woke up the next morning?
