In this house Mommy deserves more than just 1 day, so Mommy gets the full weekend. Of course, since I'm Mommy, I'm probably a bit biased in my opinion. Luckily, Daddy agrees with me. I get a weekend full of pampering. You may ask what that includes?
I started last night. A spur of the moment Girls Night In. A friend, K, and I decided at the last minute to go out and have some appetizers and a drink or two. Her kids were to be with their Dad last night. The kids changed their mind and our night went from out to in. No problems, the oldest went to a friends for the night, and the younger played by herself and watched TV. We spent the majority of the evening sitting on her front porch with Coke, beer, and an appetizer sampler from Applebee's talking. Probably one of the best Girls Night In I've had in a long time.
Today I got up with Paige so Ronnie could sleep in a bit. She and I laid on the couch watching Saturday morning cartoons. The serious lack of good Saturday morning cartoons is a whole other post. We had cereal for breakfast and just lounged. This afternoon is taken up with watching Sherlock Holmes and making Paige pick up her toys and shoes in the living room.
Tomorrow my Mom is coming over. A day of relaxing is in order. Maybe even a trip to Redbox for a movie for us tomorrow. Ronnie is cooking for us, of course, barbecue chicken, mashed potatoes, and grilled asparagus with key lime pie for dessert. My Mothers Day gift has been ordered, or at least I think it has. I'll have to check with K to double check. I want to see Carrie Underwood in concert. Ronnie does not like country music. I'll be going to the concert with K and her step mom. Tickets went on sale this morning. K's step mom was going to get the tickets for us, and we'll pay her back. Tickets aren't over priced as they are for a lot of concerts. And since I only have to buy 1 ticket for myself, and not one for each of us, it's definitely more affordable. My usual gift, renewing our membership to the local science museum, is more expensive and now unnecessary. They've announced their next 2 showings, which will take us to the end of the year, and neither interest me. No point in paying for a membership I won't use.
