Wishing you all a Happy Day today on Mother's Day! Even if you're not a mother to children, I bet you've been a great Auntie, or mother to wonderful pets, or husbands or boy friends (they can be pretty big babies)! Some way or some how, we've all mothered! I truely believe that. Our day started out cloudy, and oldest daughter and hubby and Steve and I went out for brunch this morning. The food was great and we all filled our tummies! The ride home was nice ~ Steve drove like a Grandpa! 45 mph on a busy highway, and he quickly figured out that he was going too slow when cars came up fast and had to slow down. We all laughed! Gosh, we're now the old folks! Our conversation at the table was also about how everything is changing! We're still stuck on our first phones we got after the "bag phone" went bye-bye! Things are changing so fast around us every day! We don't text; have ipods, iphones or droids; and we haven't rented a movie from a vending machine! We don't have a lap top at our house either. We figured we're doing pretty good to have high speed internet and cable TV when we live 15 miles out in the country!I've forgotten how to use our VCR player (it probably doesn't even work any more), and I have to learn each time how to do the DVD player! Electronics are passing us by!!!!!!!!!!!!
Friday, Leah and I went to Fargo to shop for graduation party supplies, but we went early, and went to an area in town that advertized 60 sales in one close area for Saturday, but many were open on Friday. That was great fun. Still a lot of people going, but not as many as was there on Saturday. I got a youth bed for Renee for $25 dollars, from another Grandma, so it hadn't been used much. I also got a car seat just like the one the kids have, so now they won't need to bring theirs with them when they fly. They will be here again in July. Leah found some glassware that she'll be using for her table center pieces, a cute clock and some other stuff. We had the SUV full, especially after getting our groceries and stuff at Sam's club. We were wishing we'd brought the truck, but I wouldn't have liked rummage saleing with that big thing and the traffic in that neighborhood! It sure is fun to spend a day like that with your daughter - thanks Leah! I'll have to do that the next time I go to Steph's and Jessica's. They like to go to rummage sales and thrift stores too. It's always fun to get a bargin!
Hope you all a having a good day!
