Sometimes, life's totally spontaneous moments are the most fondly remembered. That's how I'll remember this weekend!
My dad's been in town for the week. He was driving his way from Florida to California and decided to stop and stay with us for a while! It's been fun, but he's been sad without my mom around (she stayed in California while my dad had speaking engagements in other states. He's been on the road for 6 weeks!)
On Saturday morning, my parents were talking with each other on the phone and it was clear that my mom was feeling really down and depressed about spending Mother's Day all alone. My sister's in New Jersey, my brother's in Maine, mom's parents are in Washington, and the rest of us are in Texas.
On a total whim, my amazing husband decided that instead of sitting on all of those frequent flyer miles, we should use some for a good cause! Within ten minutes, he had booked a flight - and that evening we picked up my mom from the airport!
It was all so exciting - this is the first time I've been able to spend Mother's Day with my mom in about 13 years!!
My parents will be here for a few more days and already we've been having fun: Sunday we ate at seafood restaurant, then went out for frozen yogurt.
The only sad part is that I still have to go in to work! My husband's semester is over so everyone is hanging around without me! Oh well.... in three more weeks I'll be on my summer break :)
Hope you all had a great weekend too!
