Mother’s Day, Surprises, Shots, and Flooding

(The title isn’t in order. lol It just sounds better that way.) I hate surprises. Because of that, when John called me Friday and told me that all three kiddos would be doing sleepover – whether they wanted to or not – at my mom’s, I was on the suspicious side. John doesn’t make plans…

A day for YOU!

Don’t think I could make the image bigger! A few years back I found out that there was a day of the year, besides Mother’s Day that was dedicated to Mom’s…. National Mom’s Night Out! I took advantage. But to be honest, I made it a day about relaxation and getting some ALONE time, without…
