Weekend Roundup...

...it was a grey, rainy weekend (we soooo needed the rain).

...we cleaned Saturday morning, and then I took my mom to a movie (The Avengers, which we both really enjoyed). After, we stood and chatted for a while in the parking lot -- laid back and enjoyable. :)

...I pretty much had the house to myself Saturday evening too -- and I read while watching the BBC version of Sense & Sensibility.

...yesterday, we went to DH's uncle's house for a mother's day bbq. He has a trampoline, so the kiddos jumped for hours (literally), DH and his cousins (and his mom, gramma, and uncles) played poker, and I read a book (I got almost two-thirds of the way through Insurgent -- great book, btw).

So, yeah, this was a great weekend -- very relaxing and peaceful. Plus, my sweet kiddos gave me a couple of very touching cards :D

Happy MOnday (the sun is out again here...)

I've played in the past, but I'm not good at it (and since they play for money, DH always loses anything he wins through me, heh). ;)

Relaxing and peaceful = very, very good--especially at this time of the school year!!

Glad you had a good Mother's Day weekend, Robin :) Gatherings where it's completely okay to sit in a corner and read a book are every introvert's dream ;)

It was nice, although my mom did complain about the food. Sigh...

You didn't cook it yourself, did you? Is your mom the type who likes to complain?

Thankfully, I didn't cook myself--we went to a restaurant. And, yes, my mom is the type to complain :(
