We had a busy weekend around here. I've been working my tail off since Wednesday and I'm looking for the reprieve that tomorrow will bring. On Friday, Mom and Dad stopped by on their way into to town. We had a nice visit. I especially loved watching Dad make silly faces and noises for Nate! They were up for a Mom's Day weekend visit and their main reason for stopping by the house (aside from doting on Nathan) was to bring me about 50 lbs of toys from Michelle. They bought a new bag in Oklahoma so they could transport the toys back for me. Michelle took batteries out of toys as not to alert airport security in case Mom and Dad had talking luggage! I haven't even gotten through the entire bag yet! Nate will have lots of things to keep his attention - thank you Auntie Shel! Now, I'm off to go find ear plugs for me and Mike. haha
Saturday I had a few hours off from work in the afternoon, so I loaded Nate in the car and we headed down to the Gosport Arts Festival in downtown Portsmouth. It was a nice, cool day - great for strolling around looking at all the goodies. I've been down there before when I wanted to strip off all my clothes because it was so hot. Good thing it didn't come to that. Talk about embarassing your children... The biggest hit of the festival was the freshly made kettle corn!
After browsing for about an hour, I headed over to Nana's house. We had a good visit while Mom and Dad were out and about at the golf store. Mike came over for a bit between the events he was working and we all had a nice time. I convinced Mom, Dad, and Nana to keep Nate while I went back to P-town to make 5 more client visits. (I didn't even have to twist their arms hard!) Mike picked Nate up on his way home around 10:30.
In between my client visits, I indulged in a spa "deluxe" pedicure. It really was one of the best pedi's I've had. They were a bit busy, but I was shown to a massage chair right away and I hung out there reading a magazine and soaking my feet for about 20 minutes. That alone was great! Another 40 minutes, I was out the door, fully relaxed and feeling good! Deee-lightful!
Sunday Mike brought me flowers and he and Nate both got me Mom's day cards. I have to say I was so touched, I cried. It's amazing to be a mother and I can hardly believe I'm so blessed. If you would've told me a year ago that I'd be a mommy by this time this year, I wouldn't have believed it. We went out for a nice lunch, came home and took a 3 hour nap, and ate French toast for dinner. It was wonderful.
Hope all you Moms and Moms-to-be had a great day!
