Bowling with Tinkerbelle:-)

Someone found me the other day by searching "massage + happy ending + longwood florida". I am result #2 in a Google search of that...hmmm...interesting.

We had a great weekend!!! (Although, it looks like it was less eventful than GreenLineBoy's) We had great timing on Friday and got in to Chicago at about 7:30 local time. I had the horrible urge to eat McDonald's for dinner, so we stopped to get dinner there before we got on the plane...hee hee. The BFF's were waiting for us when we landed, and BFFg was no longer pretending to be mad at me for not calling her all week.

We got Munchkin to her brother's house in no time and then met up with a bunch of friends for drinks. It was really nice to see them all and I was all tucked in to bed by midnight:-) BFFb was making fun of me because I couldn't sleep like a little kid the night before Christmas. I woke up at like 6:45 and went to Starbuck's and showered really early before anyone else even woke up. I was just really excited to see my little sister that I couldn't sleep (and the time change, too, I guess...)

Breakfast was really fun, and she showed me a lot of stuff she had done at school recently. And then I took her bowling, although we only bowled a little bit and played some other games for a while and then had pizza for lunch:-D We went back to get her Mom and then we went to our Aunt's house because they were having a barbecue so I could see everyone. And because they look for excuses to hang out and eat and drink a lot:-)

That ran all afternoon, and Tinkerbelle was absolutely exhausted by about 7:00, so I took her and her Mom back home and said good-bye. Which is still kinda sad for me...I really wish I got to see her more often. They are all coming out to visit me in a couple months, though, which should be a boatload of fun!

I had dinner with just the BFF's, which was really, really nice! I wasn't at all hungry, since I had been eating all day long, but it is just so nice to sit around with them and just do nothing. No new progress to report in my plan to get the two of them to move out this way...I will have to keep working on it.

Sunday morning I went over to pick up Munchkin to find that she had flowers and a card for me for Mother's Day:-) Isn't she just the cutest thing that ever lived? She had a lot of fun with her brother and their family and no one tried to kidnap her away from me...so that's good;-) (Her brother did have a semi-serious request that made me so made I wanted to drive a wooden post through his skull, but I don't feel like writing about that now...)

We met our Mother's family for brunch, and got to see all of them, too. I don't have the greatest relationship with my Mother's family as a whole, but there are some of them that I care very deeply about, and they are all family, so it is still good to see (most of) them. The couple of them that are totally persona non grata had the sense to stay home...

We landed at about 3:30, which gave us plenty of time to get home and relax a bit before dinner. The Boy was at his parent's house for Mother's Day, but I kinda wanted to hang out with Papa Bear, Smoking Hot Roommate and Big Sis. Mother's Day is a pretty big deal for all of them, and I feel special that they invite us to share it with them. It is not really a somber or sentimental kind of thing...but both girls hold their mother in extremely high regard, and both still miss her, so they like anything that reminds them of her.

So, every Mother's Day, Big Sis and Smoking Hot Roommate meet somewhere for breakfast: just the two of them and no one else. They have done it every year since their Mother died, even when Big Sis lived in London and Smoking Hot Roommate lived in Phoenix, they always came home for Mother's Day to see their father, and to have their annual breakfast.

I think it is a very nice tradition:-)

I'm not sure I told you Happy Mother's Day, kiddo.

You are my hero!

A "wooden stake through his skull"? You lost me there....that's so vivid! I guess I'll have to sign onto gmail chat to get the full story.

Anyway, Happy Mother's Day! I'm glad Munchkin has such an awesome big sister.

Jordan - Well, if you are looking for a massage parlor that offers Happy Endings in Longwood, I think Google can steer you in the right direction...

Big Sis - You're my hero:-)

Ally - You think that was a little over the top? Hmm...ok...maybe I should tone that down a bit...

My goodness that sounds like quite the weekend! I agree with what you said about sitting around with friends and doing nothing together - it's one of my favorite things in life!
