Happy Mother's Day!

I am spending Mother's Day weekend at my parents' house, so I will blog more tomorrow. Mainly because their computer is slow, and I simply don't have the patience.

I am so delusional. I thought we would come down for a nice, relaxing Mother's Day weekend. Yet somehow, the kids ended up sunburned, Georgia came down with an ear infection, and we ate our celebratory Mother's Day dinner at the Steakhouse amidst screaming and crying. I did manage to get a few bites of steak in between hopping up and chasing Georgia across the restaurant.

And this was only after I ran into the mother of my high school arch-nemesis, who told me how much my daughter was like me. Is that because I have a beautiful daughter or because she was a screaming hellion? Hmmm . . . Not quite sure how to take that one.

We did finally manage to get the children to bed, and I then celebrated with a big bowl of coffee ice cream. All is well with the world.

When we get home on Sunday evening, Eric and the kids were planning to take me out for a nice dinner. After today's fiasco, I'm thinking take-out and a bottle of wine out on the deck will suffice just fine.

I hope your Mother's Day is filled with love, coffee, and no screaming.

Happy Mother's Day to all, and to all a good night!

No screaming here, unless you count mine...

Happy Mothers' Day to you, Neila. Hope you find some quiet "me" time!

Wine on the deck sounds good to me, sweetums!

Heh heh...Happy Mother's Day! We did not go out b/c of THAT very reason. We stayed at home where we could lock the kiddos in their rooms for some quiet time.
Bwahhaahaahaa!! :)

Don't worry, at least you got into the restaurant. We forgot to make a reservation. But the nice thing is you got a big bowl of coffee ice cream!!!!! Happy belated Mother's Day!!!
