My son bought me lunch at Taco Bell.

Then Chinese food for Dinner.

I went to the beach, then bought and made soft shell crabs for myself for dinner. Mmmmm

I went to breakfast with a friend and his family. Came home and took a nap, and then cut my grass.

We celebrated Mother's Day last night with pizza and the Penguin win at my brothers house.

I had 3 kiddos who gave me manual labor! They washed my car, we planted so many flowers, a few veges, and my entire drive way, sidewalk, and back patio was all power washed!

Right now, they are making me Mac -n- cheese from a box :)

Love my babies

DD woke me up at 4, afraid someone was trying to break into the house (it was the wind). Then she made me breakfast in bed (Nutella toast, kettle corn, and coffee). Went for a drive once the sun came up and said a final good bye to our house (closing is tomorrow).

And then laundry.

First service of church, second service of church, McDonald's for lunch, picked up Bunny Boy, went to the IL's, went to my mom's, home, broke my toe/almost tore off the nail, ate chips and dip, and then took pics with the kids.

I did get four roses, a card, and a little outdoor plant from the hubbs/kids. The kids all made me cards, Dora gave me a ceramic starfish and flower (she did them at school) and Diego gave me a tea bag with a poem. It was a decent day...other than killing my toe

I was woken to snuggles from the little one (and cat) and the older two downstairs bickering about breakfast preparations. I got breakfast in bed -- a good breakfast, too, despite them having to do it themselves at 12 and 9 -- and then came downstairs to cards and muffins my middle made yesterday with some help from her dad. Since then its been business as usual -- mowed the lawn, vacuumed, played some cards with middle DD.. a quiet day at home. They did let me get in a hot bath this morning too.

The kids woke up insistent I open presents before we left for church. Their gifts were so thoughtful and they picked them out all on their own.

DD7 picked out a ceramic garden gnome. She knows I've been wanting one.

DS4 picked out a jewelry tree. He said I have tons of jewelry and nowhere to put it. (Actually I do. I just leave it all over the dresser all the time.)

Lunch was at Mom and Dads. We grilled out then opened more Mommy gifts. After lunch I fell asleep on the couch while everyone sat around talking.

Lots of pictures, smiles, and cuddles. Good day.

Two of my 4 kids had dog shows this weekend, so for three days I was schlepping them back and forth, the events were mostly full days. One son had to stay home to babysit the puppy we have (which he was more than happy too, he was not looking forward to all day dog show lol) and one child spent the weekend with her friend and their family and had a grand time.

No one in my family wished me a happy mothers day, and no gifts, but I did have a good day and H took me out to dinner tonight as the kids decided they did not want to eat out, just wanted to eat their left over spaghetti and veg after their long weekend of activity.

gerrygirl got breakfast in bed, followed by cards and her gift (which she picked out a week ago), then she read on her Kindle most of the day. The kids and I took a walk with the dog, then detailed her car, then DD make strawberry shortcake from scratch and for dinner...mmmmm...baked rissoto, BBQ salmon and steelhead with a maple soy glaze, and grilled green beans. Oh, and gerrygirl ran 4.5 miles on a treadmill.

Pretty good day here with temps in the upper 80's to low 90's.

We went to my MIL's on Saturday to celebrate with her (cookout with cheeseburgers, yum!), then we went to a local amusement park on Sunday with my family to celebrate. I gave my MIL, mom, and grandmother framed pics of my DD as presents. I received a card and sweet letter from my DD, and a surprise trip to Vegas from my H (to be taken on July 4 weekend!). My brother, randomly and sweetly, gave me a nice scented candle.

I was whisked off to one of Toronto's finest Italian restaurants and treated to their award-winning Golden Spoons Risotto--OMG seriously good!--and champagne. Mmmmmmmmmm. I love my kids.

I worked-but got flowers, card, and cheesecake when I got home last night

I spent Saturday with oldest DS, DIL, and grandkids watching soccer and tee-ball. I bought them lunch - $31 and bought cookie dough for a fundraiser for the youth football team - $30. They gave me a card, it was a GREAT day! Got home and there was a flower box on my front porch - 2 dozen red roses from youngest DS.

Sunday I mowed the lawn, did some weeding, went out to dinner with SO, and then home to watch a couple of rented movies. Good day.

something private;
a card;
I did some vacuuming for W;
grocery shopping;
nap together interrupted by call from son saying GS (3.5 years old) was trying to Skype with us, so we jumped up, went to the Skype PC, turned the sound on, and Skyped with our naked but happy GS. (Perhaps happiness is inversely related to the amount of clothing we carry around.)
dinner out.
Discussion of Don Draper and W's A.

Poetry reading from DD11 on Thursday.

Saturday, went to Ontario for a race:

It was supposed to say "I run 4 chocolate" but someone messed up the printing.
I did the 5k in about 40 mins. My kids did their 1k at the same race, first timers!


And then we did presents Sunday. Today my Mom and I went outlet shopping. Got a new watch, some pants and headbands.

Much fun, but back to work now. (boo)
