We went to my in-laws for dinner. We were in the guidelines when it comes to having small groups of people together. We were under 10 people. I was tasked with making a salad. I was glad to see everyone and celebrate Mother’s Day.
Also, I was able to spend the past couple days with my mom and see her even though we couldn’t do anything special because everything was closed. I did promise her a pedicure once the salons open up again.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there, especially the ones who are trying to be mothers.
This morning, I got up around 8:30am. I got a shower and dressed. I left the house and went to my parents to see my dogs and see my parents.
Around 10:45am, we left for the nail salon. I drove us to Bella’s Nails. We were the first ones there. I sat in the pedicure chair. I was getting a pedicure, and a gel full-set on my nails. I know what you are thinking, I am not going to keep them on! However, I intend to for as long as I can. I don’t have class again until August (outside of my summer class, but that is online). The pedicure was amazing. I got the works I needed it (hot stone massage, hot towel treatment, etc.) My mom just got a simple manicure.
After the nail place, I drove my mom back to my house where we hung out with Drew until my dad came over and it was time to get dinner on the table. Drew’s parents could not attend, they were on the way home from Erie. Megan graduated yesterday.
Around 3pm I started dinner, it was so involved. My parents hung out at the ding room table and watched us prep for dinner. My mom said, “You two work so well together.” I smiled and said, “we typically do.” We get a long really well. Of course we have our set backs and things that we need to work on, but when it comes to working together in the kitchen, or decorating we do it without arguments.
Dinner was served around 4:30pm, it was so nice. My dad even tried spinach! He ate everything on his plate. I was so proud of him. After dinner, I cleaned up some little by little. It is a lot to let sit. I put the left overs away. I also played Mario Kart with my mom and dad. My dad used to play Mario Kart with me growing up on the Super Nintendo.
They left around 7pm. Drew finished cleaning up. We split up the work it seemed. It is a lot to clean up after. We got ready for another week ahead. I had just a quick, but amazing weekend!
This morning, my mom came and picked me up around 10:15am. We were running behind, but such is life. We stopped at Dunkin. I bought us coffee and 2 egg muffins. Then we were on our way to Bella Nails. I was going to treat her to a manicure, and I desperately needed a pedicure. I was excited to spend the day with her.
When we arrived at the nail salon, there was no one there. I was surprised it is Mother’s Day. They were able to take us right away. Alan, the owner’s husband did my mom’s manicure, and Amy the owner did my pedicure. I was so relaxed. My feet really needed some TLC. I decided on a gel french for my toes for vacation in a little less than a week away! I had a manicure scheduled for next Saturday at 1pm. I was going to get a gel french then too as well. I am so excited for my trip to England and France.
When we left the nail salon, we went back to my parents. I was able to see my pups again for a bit, then it was off to Drew’s parents. I was going to meet him at his mom and dads. He had to go pick up Aunt Tootsie and bring her to his parents for dinner. His uncle Steve and Aunt Maryann were attending dinner as well.
When we arrived at his parents, Aunt Tootsie and Drew just arrived as well. I was happy to see Drew. He said my toes looked pretty. We greeted everyone and then Steve and MaryAnn arrived. Shortly after, it was time to sit down and eat. We had hamburgers and hot dogs once again, along with sausages and macaroni salad. It was all so yummy. For desert, we had Aunt Tootsie’s lemon cake and apple pie. I had a few Stella Artois’ I wasn’t driving.
After dinner, we all sat around and chatted. Then we got up and got ready to go visit Grandma in the nursing home. Andrew’s mom left ahead of us, she wanted to stop at Giant Eagle and pick up some flowers for her. I couldn’t wait to see Grandma. It has been a while since we were able to visit her.
When we arrived at the nursing home, we kissed her and gave her a hug. We wished her happy Mother’s Day. She was sitting up eating some of the topping from the lemon cake that we all had for dessert. This woman is a fighter, so strong. We stayed and visited for an hour or two, then said goodbye. We probably won’t be able to see her again, until we get back from England.
When we arrived home, I put some laundry in the washer, got a shower, and then put some PJs on. We then went started rolling up some loose change into some wrappers. I think counting and wrapping change is relaxing. We watched movies on TV, and then it was time for bed around 10pm. I put the towels in the dryer. Tomorrow was Monday.
