To All the Moms....

I just wanted to say

My Mom is enjoying an Alaskan cruise (with my Dad) at the moment, so I can't call her to tell her Happy Mother's Day. But I told her before she left, and we will celebrate later.

I'm enjoying my day...just relaxing for the most part. We didn't make it to church this morning. We planned to, but lack of sleep played a little part in that.

Chip was at work last night, so I knew that it was a good possibility he wouldn't get much sleep. And he didn't. But he still would have gone to church with us this morning if I had wanted to go.

But I didn't sleep well either. We were under a tornado watch all night, and that just doesn't make for good sleep for me. I tried to sleep, but I was in and out, keeping check on the weather, and praying we wouldn't have to take cover!

Thankfully, the worst of it missed us. Sadly, for many, the outcome wasn't the same. And my heart goes out to those who lost loved ones in this band of storms.

I texted Chip this morning to see if he had mangaged to get any sleep. He didn't get much and told me the decision to go to church was up to me. I knew that meant he was tired, but would go with me if I wanted. Since I was quite tired too, I just closed my eyes and went back to sleep.

He was a sweetie and brought breakfast home. And we've just enjoyed a nice, relaxing morning.

We are going out to eat later and I'm looking forward to completely indulging myself with Mexican food. I will enjoy every single bite.

And tomorrow? I start getting serious again about getting some weight off!

A few weeks ago, I sent Chip an email with a link to an Etsy shop with a gift I'd like to have. It was matching mom and daughter aprons. I've been wanting one, and when I saw the matching ones, I decided that would be perfect. And of course, he bought them and gave them to me (us) this morning. I'll get pictures of us wearing them later. Maybe now I'll quit ruining my clothes when I'm cooking!

I'm off to enjoy the rest of the day. All you Mom's - have a fabulous Mother's Day!
