Monday: Had a Memorial Day BBQ with Son3, TheHub and me, Mom, Son2 and Girlfriend2. Best part of it? We were on our way home from the lake Sunday and found a guy smoking butts, so we bought an already cooked butt and ribs. It left me with virtually no cooking!
Tuesday: Caught up on all laundry, and got to spend some nice time with Son3 just talking. Also had a nice Facetime visit with Girlfriend3, who is in Sweden for the summer.
Wednesday: Minor shopping trip for a few veggies, which I planned on having for dinner, but Son3 was craving steamed buns and sesame chicken from a local Chinese place. Take-out won!
Thursday: Even though a huge tree branch cracked at Mom's house and it was on her roof there was no damage and we were able to get someone out and have it removed within hours of it falling. Also since I was at Mom's for 5 hours (She works herself into a frenzy when anything goes wrong, and can't seem to function) I didn't have time to cook so I stopped on the way home and picked up a Bojangles family pack.
Friday: Enjoyed an evening into late night listening to Duke Ellington with Son3 on the screened porch at the lake place. Because of his studies, Son3 had different and interesting background info on the compositions. It was somewhat like a history lesson while listening.
Saturday: Son2 and Girlfriend2 drove to the lake place late Friday night/butt early Saturday morning after seeing Paul Simon in Atlanta. Even though it was not a full house (Son1's family was not there) it was full enough and we enjoyed everyone being there.
Sunday: Driving home from the lake I got to Facetime with my all time favorite 3 year old. There is something wonderful about having a face to face conversation about princesses and ponies, and having someone sing, "Rain, rain go away, Come again another day, Little Annie wants to play, Rain rain go away", because it was raining while we were driving and she wanted it to be sunny for us.
Have a great week and I hope everyone is just a tad kinder than normal. The world needs kindness right now.
