I had a great Mother's Day. Yes, I realize that was about three weeks ago but I'm just now getting a chance to write. The Saturday before Jerry had worked and so had I and we were both pretty tired but at about 9:30 that night Jerry asked if I felt like going somewhere. Sure, why not? I asked where we were going and he said he didn't know - just going. We assumed the boys would be going too as we always have a good time when we're all together doing stuff. Tom was home because Sam was working that night. Turns out that they didn't want to go anywhere, but gave us their blessing to go, so we took them up on it. We ended up not leaving until around 11 that night and we just drove west. Yes - we actually went west, finally! We ended up stopping at a Comfort Inn at about 2:30 in the morning. We got up the next day and hit the road again - still going west. To say we had a great time is an understatement. We talked, sang, laughed, stopped when we felt like it and in general just had a wonderful day. We went to Lynchburg and some places a little farther than that - I'm not even sure exactly where we were; I was too busy enjoying the trip and the scenery. Finally later in the day we started running into some pretty nasty storms. Since we had been listening to the satellite radio in the Tahoe we hadn't heard a weather forecast but we figured it was time to head home anyway. We got home at about 11:30 on Sunday night. It was really a great day. Usually on Mother's Day I try to do something special for the boys and Jerry. I think Mother's Day is a little backwards anyway. I LOVE being a mom and a wife and I use that day to celebrate my boys and my husband; not me. After all, if it weren't for them I wouldn't be a mom, right?! The boys had a great time and so did we. There was no one to tell them to quiet down and go to bed! I remember my sister and I doing the same thing - staying up until all hours and just giggling like crazy at nothing at all, so I completely understand how the boys felt.
Well, that's about it for this update - off to do stuff! For anyone who is wondering, I have asked Tom to please update his photo blog - I miss seeing his pictures and I know he has taken some really great ones lately. His photo blog is seen by people all over the world - like my blog! - and his viewers are missing his pictures, too.
