Mothers Day: Part 2!
Since we were all a little short on cash last week, we decided to celebrate Mothers Day a week late. I planned on having my mom, dad, and sister, as well as Bee's mom, and BFF Rose and her son out to my house for a brunch.
At about midnight on Saturday, I was about partied out, considering I was sober. Ha! I really was tired, and I knew I had stuff to do the next day. Therefore I packed up my stumbling Bee, and we headed out the door. We stopped off across the street to get coffee and french fries from McDonald's, and started on the long drive home. No Sooner had we pulled out, and Bee's mom called. She wanted Bee to call his brother because she was worried he was stranded without a ride due to a text she received from him. So, he called and as it turns out, Bee's brother was stranded on Put-in-Bay Island which was an hour from where we were currently, and two hours from our home. He was up there doing a show this weekend and they cancelled all but one of the ferries back to the mainland. He was ok for the night (he had a hotel) but would need a ride at 10am Sunday morning. If you do the math, that meant Bee had to leave our house at 8am. After not getting to bed until almost 2am. After drinking since 6pm.
Bee got up, and left in the morning while I slept a little longer. Then, I got up, straightened up a little bit before heading out to pick up two small presents for my mom and grandma bee. I came home and got brunch started and then my family arrived. Shortly after, Grandma Bee and the kids got there and we exchanged gifts. I got my mommy a card and a $25 gift card to Marshall's, her favorite store, and Grandma Bee got a card and a Lilly. My mom and dad got me a cookbook with lots of yummy 30 minute or less meals, and some shower gel, and hand lotions, and my sister....well, SHE got me this beautiful bracelet/earrings holder made of led crystal and real opal and diamond earrings. I was floored. They are gorgeous! Opal is my favorite too!
