What a Week!

Standard

My son graduated from high school on Monday and that was wonderful. My other son is in the US for two weeks and even though I won’t get to see him until Monday, the 11th, just knowing he’s on the same side of the Atlantic Ocean as me makes me happy. The kid that graduated made a mad dash down to Orlando the day after the ceremony to see Bon Iver in concert. His first trip with just him and a buddy and it went very well.

Tomorrow, we have family both from my husband’s side and my own extended family from north Alabama as well as friends descending on our house for a pool party and BBQ in honor of the graduate. Sadly, his brother won’t be able to make it. I hate that he’s not going to get to see some of his family he hasn’t seen in a long time but he’s spending one week of his time in the US at his future in-laws’ house.

I’m a bit fretful since I haven’t cooked a thing since I ordered all the food, but what if they forget? EEP. Lots of people and no food will be a disaster. And oh yeah, that prediction about rain all day? Yeah, that. Well, I’m fretting a mite about that, too. A pool party in the rain is not good. As my dad always says, “Someone might get wet.”

Mother’s Day

Standard

Was nice.  Had both sons at home.  We had Sonny’s BBQ for lunch because that is what my own mother always wants. I think, only one time, since I have been a mother, have  I gotten to eat what I want and it was because my mom was out of town.  So, grateful to have my own mom still be alive, I’ll keep eating Sonny’s BBQ for a long time to come.

I got a gift card to Books a Million and one to JoAnn’s.  My kids know me well and that makes me happy!
