The coming week will see us coming and going. I was down with a sinus infection all last week that kept me housebound. Now I have to hustle to finish everything that didn’t get done. This includes a Mother’s Day card, and three birthdays. Sorry, guys! I haven’t forgotten. The body just wouldn’t cooperate last week.

We are doing a couple of fun things this week though. Captain America is on the agenda–one of the few times we’ll spend money at the theater. We’d also like to do a flea market and a farmer’s market, but that will depend on the weather.

With all the rain we’ve been getting my garage sale has been pushed ahead to June. I so wanted to empty that garage, but you can’t tell Mother Nature what to do–especially on Mother’s Day.

Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day! Are you doing anything special today?

Yesterday when I was waiting at the pharmacy, I kept seeing all these dads asking their kids what to do for Mom’s Day. It was cute. You never realize how much a mom does for you until you have to do it yourself.
