Mother’s Day


I went to the mall with Amber in the afternoon. We were there for 2 hours and I only found 1 outfit. I’m so fussy. I need more work clothes. I think I’ll go again this week.

In the evening we went to Kevin’s monthly group astronomy meeting at the U of M. Normally I enjoy it, and I did enjoy the lectures up until about 8:30 when the lecture was on some pretty detailed observing tips for dim sky objects. I couldn’t keep awake. I think everyone noticed me falling asleep in my chair. I enjoy the amateur lectures more. That stuff went way over my head.


I went planting seeds at Kevin’s parents garden on Saturday. It was fun. I planted lots of things: beans, romaine and leaf lettuce, carrots, peas, spinach, beets, strawberries, cantaloupe and I was going to plant potatoes and garlic but we forgot to bring those seeds. I can’t wait until they start growing. I’m going to have to take pictures. Kevin’s Dad insisted I have a couple glasses of his homemade red wine afterwards to celebrate the planting. Well, he didn’t really have to twist my arm. I love that wine.


Today we had a Mother’s Day brunch with Kevin’s family for his step-mom. Kevin and his brothers made waffles and whipped cream. It was delicious. My soon-to-be niece is getting quite mobile now. At 15 months she can walk now if you hold her hands over her head. I like this because it’s my first real experience with a baby. I walked her around the house, and even picked her up today. I was so relieved! It was easier than I thought it would be. Also, I wasn’t scared like I usually am to pick up or handle a baby.

Afterwards I went by myself to visit my parents. I bought my mom a really nice card that made her cry and hug me. =) I also bought her a nice assortment of roses in a small globe vase. I thought they were so beautiful in the store I had to buy them.

We had a nice casual dinner of caesar salad and chicken fingers. Then we had cheesecake with fresh strawberries for desert. M’mmm. I love strawberries.

This evening I also went swimming for the first time since last October. It was refreshing. I’m going to try and go at least 3x a week to get in shape and lose some weight.
