I worked out bright and early in the am. Then I went to woman's study all about discerning the voice of God. I met some super cool ladies and am looking forward to this weekly study. Then I went to lunch with a friend and ended up hanging out with her for the afternoon. Fun! I am so proud of myself--my weekend challenge was to clean the bathroom, but I did one better. I made my darling daughter clean the bathroom! No way momma was doing it on Mother's Day weekend!
Sat evening I took DD to church and then she decides to confess that she has a science project she must turn in on Monday or face detention. The project was due last Friday. Umm, can you say pissed? Someone is grounded from her precious DSi until school is over. She half-efforted a project, ended up staying up all night to mark observations and I still made her get up and do Mother's Day stuff with me. Grrrr, that girl.
Went out to lunch with BF's family, Local tex-mex restaurant. Delicious. I know I did not have my fabulous, fit, forty mantra going through my head while I was there. Lunch is actually all I had yesterday.
Then I got hanging baskets bought for me by BF. And he even bought a potted freesia for my Mommy (it smells so good). I went and visited her. I made her a spectacular card. I found a poem I just loved and hand wrote it on the inside. Wish I had thought to get a picture of it... Oh well. She loved it! My step-father was all like, Jenn, you say the most thoughtful things. Made me happy. (I always feel a sense of guilt over not having funds to "treat" my Mom to meals out, or a spa day, or even a movie. But my Mom and I have never been the "go out" types. We enjoy each others company without fan fare.
My belly is a bit achy from the rich food yesterday. I plan to eat healthy today and flush myself out with plenty of water and a good workout.
