I spent Friday night with the boyfriend. We had pizza & watched Sherlock Holmes. I live for nights when it's just the two of us doing nothing at all.
On Saturday DJ's sister had us over for a Mother's Day dinner. There was picnic food & chit-chat. I am so ready for summer & more of the same.
Afterwards my best friend Amanda & her husband came over. Even though DJ & I have been in our house since the end of January, we did not have a blender yet. Our friends bought one for us
Last summer a coworker of mine suggested a drink called a Transfusion. Amanda & I made some for ourselves last night, & they were excellent! It's vodka, Sprite & grape juice. I am currently envisioning us spending hot summer nights sipping more of those on my deck in the very near future.
Today was a typical lazy Sunday. I work up earlier than I would have liked to & cleaned a little bit. This afternoon was a Mother's Day party with my family. We got together at my aunt's house. There were lots of snackies & more pizza (You can never have too much pizza!). We watched some baseball, then some basketball & then my MomMom opening her gifts.
I got home about an hour ago & my own mother just texted me to say she is already wearing the PJs DJ & I got for her. I had a bit of an issue with my mother not too long ago which you can read about here. Lots of people (DJ in particular) don't understand why I would even want to be around her on Mother's Day...let alone give her a gift.
What most people don't understand is that I had a very, very dysfunctional relationship with my father - until three years ago, when I stopped talking to him completly. For better or for worse, she's all I've got. Although our relationship isn't picture perfect, I know that I wouldn't be who I am today if it weren't for her. And that is at least worth a pair of PJs.
