Mothers Day And Other Things

Last week at work was the usual stress-fest and Friday was especially so. The last hour before I left I was swamped with work and left a huge pile on my desk for Monday. When we went to dinner that evening, I actually had a beer, which is shocking because I hardly ever drink, but it did the trick and helped me relax and blow off my day!

Saturday Chris came over and brought lunch. Marrisa was up north at a wedding shower so he stayed for quite a while. It was nice to see him as usual. They gave me some awesome Bath and Body Works shower gel, soap and lotion.

Sunday was a very nice day.

We started with a visit to the cemetery. I cut flowers from my lilac bush to put on my moms grave. She used to love the way they smelled and would always walk into my backyard to smell them when they were in bloom. Anyway, they don't last very long after they've been picked but they looked nice for a while, anyway.

Then to the nursing home to visit my MIL.

After we got home Shauna came over and we went to dinner. She brought me a cute angel ornament, a flameless candle and a beautiful homemade card!

All in all it was a nice day and a nice weekend.

I managed to get through Monday at work with minimal hair pulling!

Last night I even made hard boiled eggs and cut up vegetables for a protein salad.

Surviving the week!
