May 6 - My older daughter's 31st birthday!
May 7 - A very hectic day for me. Delivered Avon brochures. Had lunch with my Nicaragua friend, Nellie, and her hubby at Hibachi Grill & Buffet. I had sushi and Chinese food at the buffet. Always end up eating more than I need at a buffet. I can't help it, the food is so good! Daughter had her Tae Kwon Do class in the evening and I went on the treadmill.
May 8 - Woke up with chest pains around 4:00am. Had to take my anxiety pill at 4:50am. It takes an hour for the medication to kick in. Hubby told me to get some rest. He took the day off and drop daughter to school for me. When I woke up later, he took me to Greatwall, Chinese Restaurant for lunch.
My daughter try out for the upcoming Talent Show in the afternoon. She is participating in a group of four girls. They will be singing a Taylor Swift song. Oops! I forgot the song title. They got in and she will have to go for practice on May 15 & 22. The Talent Show falls on May 29.
Daughter had Tae Kwon Do class in the evening. Delivered an Avon order.
May 9 - Run a couple of errands
May 10 - I volunteered for our church Annual Mothers Day Plant Sale. After that, I had lunch with my friend, June, at Greatwall Chinese Restaurant. She will be moving to Omaha, Nebraska on June 5. This will probably be our farewell lunch till we meet again hopefully a year later. We met last year and became good friends. I am going to miss her.
May 11 - Went for Mammogram, waiting for result. Grocery shopping day. Also, laundry day.
May 12 - Went to church as usual and stay for coffee hour after service.
Hubby took me to Penang Malaysian Cuisine, Arlington Heights for lunch. Hubby had Mango Smoothie, Beef Rendang & Coconut Rice. Daughter had Lychee Drink and 5 Penang Lobak. I ordered appetizers like Fried Calamari, Thai Fish Cake, Paper Wrap Chicken (disappointed as it was not the same as KL, Malaysia), Hokkien Char Mee (not the same as KL and no thick mee) and for dessert, Ice Kacang. I was very greedy, ordered too much food and I ate too much! I only had a couple of bites of Hokkien Mee and sample a piece of Paper Wrap Chicken, so I took the rest home as leftovers!
We went to Mitsuwa Japanese Store, Arlington Heights for Salmon sashimi, and other groceries, etc. Then we went to Asian Noodle House, Huffman Estates, to order food to go like Char Kway Teow (Malaysian KL style Flat Rice Noodles) and Loh Shee Fun (another kind of rice noodles) for the next two days. Hubby went to order White Castles sliders (mini burgers) to go which daughter and he loves.
I had a wonderful Mothers Day as I feel so blessed!
I hope you have had a wonderful one too.
May 13 - My wonderful hubby had to replace the sensor and wires for the garage door opener as it was out of order. It took him three and a half hours to get it done. By the time he gets done, his back was hurting. I hope it is nothing as he has had spine surgery on Feb 27.
