Mother’s Day

Well, it was an eventful weekend, to say the least. I spent all day Saturday on my feet. First thing was cleaning the living room, which turned into rearranging the furniture, which turned into deep cleaning. Followed by a Home Depot run for flower bed supplies.

The Home Depot run was very disheartening. Hardly any of the employees were wearing masks, or maintaining social distancing. There were a lot of customers who were guilty of this, as well.

Same thing at H-E-B afterward. The staff did better than Home Depot, but still not up to the standards set by the CDC. Anyway, I got my shopping done for the next two weeks, and picked up three Mother’s Day bouquets.

The first bouquet went to my friend, Rachel, whom you may remember me mentioning a few times before. We had a little driveway date when I dropped them off Saturday evening.

The second bouquet went to Kathy (Mimi). Late after hanging out with Rachel, I couldn’t stay long. It was Kathy’s first Mother’s Day without her son, CJ Clifton. It may not have made her feel better, but I wanted to let her know that I was thinking about her.

The third bouquet went to my mother-in-law on Sunday. She and my father-in-law came for a visit. It was hard for everyone to maintain social distancing, but I think we did pretty well.

With them, they brought a box of the boys’ old things. We found an Nintendo64, controllers, games, and a purple Game Boy Color! Best believe I was playing that B most of the evening.

I think the most exciting thing about my Mother’s Day was my gift from my husband, though. I’m getting a new DSLR camera! I’ve been wanting this thing since high school, so I’m so stoked! Prepare for lots of pictures in the future!
