Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! My weekend was fantastic – got both sons together with a photographer for probably the last professional photos they’ll have made together, them moved the younger one out of the dorm and back home. I’m not the kind of mom or wife who has ever been into flowers, and have always told hubby if he’s ever in doubt, go with a gift card to Best Buy or a bookstore. There wasn’t really anything I wanted for Mother’s Day – I was just happy having both boys home.
But then Saturday, an idea popped into my head. Ziplining! A place just opened 10 minutes from our house, so hubby, the oldest son, and I went yesterday and had a blast! The younger one isn’t a fan of heights, so he took the photos and held all the cell phones. The first pic is after we finished the three runs (I’m the short one in the middle, in case you were wondering), and the other is me up on the platform – just not a very good shot. If you’ve never tried it, go now – so much fun!
Writing was going well last week – until I was rudely and unexpected attacked by some sort of pollen/allergy/sinus juggernaut. Thursday I was down for the count – couldn’t breathe, body chills, head splitting – I was convinced I left a trail of brain cells through the house. When I can’t even read, it’s bad. And the drugs weren’t working. Friday was much better, and I even managed to see a movie with the oldest son and meet friends for dinner. But the word count only totaled 1K last week. I’m not beating myself up over this, because the oldest son enters the real world in a couple of weeks, and I’m enjoying this time with him. I’ll make up the word count another time.
Have a great week!
