Memorial Weekend 2007

Happy Memorial Day to all!
I thought about my grandad a lot today, he was a gunner on a bomber during WWII.
Well, this weekend was AWESOME, and part of it SUPER SUCKED! Saturday was GREAT, sorta...saturday midday we met up with some other moms from Dallas Area Moms and their beautiful kiddos for a fountain playdate in Addison! (I took no pics so I'm waiting on their permission to post pics of D on here that got taken...there were some CUTE ones) I think we were there about 2 hours. So we got home at 2:30 or so, and D and I both took a nap. Then we got up to eat some dinner before getting ready for church. Well, about 6, I was laying in bed while D watched tv, and I could NOT get up, could not see straight, NOTHIN.
I think it was a horrible migraine, either that or food poisoning. So from 6-8pm I was laying in bed with D right by my side (poor kid, he had NO clue what was goin on, but he would NOT leave my side, not even to watch Dora!). Well at 8, I kept feeling nauseous, so I put him in bed, and yup, about 10 minutes later, and for the next 2 hours, I was throwing up. FUN. About 10, I laid back down in bed, exhausted, and fell asleep til the next morning. Sunday morning, I actually felt better. Queasy still, but MUCH better than the night before! So we continued with going to the lake which is two hours away in East Texas. We were there from Sunday til today (Monday) and had a BLAST. Here's pics!

Ok, I got my lifejacket, LETS GET IN THE BOAT!

A wet n wild weekend (no, not the waterpark!)

So it was a good weekend. I wish I had slept more but thats ok. I'll make it up someday this week...umm...yeah right!

On Friday evening, we went over to my friend Kristen's place to hang out and let D play with her nephew. We ended up staying there til about 11pm. YAWN. D passed OUT when we got home. We ended up watching Greys Anatomy while over there. Her nephew fell asleep and D was chillin with me on the couch, he did really well!

Saturday we got up kinda late, went to Discount Tire to get me a new tire for my vehicle, we ate lunch at Braums while we waited. Then off to get my inspection done on my truck, and then home for a niceeeeeeeeee 2 hour nap for both of us! After that, we met up with Kristen and her
nephew and a friend of hers at the Willowbend playarea, and let the kiddos run some energy off! And finally we headed to the pool to swim with my friend Stacy and her two boys. The water was helllllllllla cold, omg, and D just about drowned. lol He was ok, he was in a swim ring and was flailing around so much that his arms slipped out. Poor baby was hanging onto that ring for all he was worth! Jalen was close to him so he grabbed him and dragged him in to the stairs though it was hard for him too. They were both fine, and D seemed a little more conscious of the water, a little healthy fear never hurt anyone! We went home after trying to swim for a bit longer, D took a warm bath and into bed he went! We compromised church to go swimming, but we will prolly go on wednesday evening so I figured that would make up for it.

Sunday was fun, we went to my grandmas for lunch as usual. D played outside in a little pool that we got him, he had a blast splashing everyone, and then we headed to a birthday party for one of his classmates. It was a lot of fun! Two other classmates of his were there too. They had a bounce house, sub sandwiches, cake and stuff. My allergies started acting up there so I kept sneezing, and finally right before presents, we left. When we got home, D and I went in my room to play, and I ended up half falling asleep on the bed, knocked out from my allergies. When I woke up about 7:30, D was just laying on the bed beside me, he was half asleep too, so I put him in bed, and by then I was awake enough to go play on the computer.

BTW These pics were taken on my new CELLPHONE! The Motorola Razr V3xx...LOVE IT!

The birthday boy and D bouncing around
Yes, the boys were wearing the same shirt!!! lol

Hope you guys had a great weekend...

My first Mothers Day!

Well, its my first MOTHERS DAY...and I have mixed feelings. I feel SO blessed to just have D, he is the perfect gift. But I can't help but be envious of those who got MD gifts. I got a poem and a handprint that D did in school, and a free meal at Grandys this evening. But maybe I kinda thought the day would be, I dunno, just MAGICAL, and it was kind of a let down. We hung out at home all day, just laid around and played. And then met up with some other single moms at Grandys since they had free meals for moms. Woo.
In years past, I always dreaded Mothers Day. My mom sucks and I moved out when I was 16. She has almost NO part of D and I's life. And probably never will, at her own choice. He's seen her maybe 4 times since I got him back in August. I just HATE that I have a mom out there who isn't a mom. It kills me sometimes. How can a mom not want her own flesh and blood in her life??? To see what they do each day, hear how their day went...D isn't even my own flesh and blood and I can't imagine him ever not being my son!! I just want a normal mom, one who dearly loves her kids and grandkid, and would want to visit us, and be a part of our life. I know, my grandma and aunts love him, but its not the same. It can't be. So I am a bit down today. I'll get over it.
Anyway, here's some pics of our day.

Happy Mothers Day, Mama!

Strike a Pose!

Mama gets a free meal!!

I get an outing!

Yummy yummy!!!!
