Mother's Day

So there was some good news delivered this Mother's Day Weekend, my mom finally got word on her job and should be done by the end of the week. It seems so strange to be excited that she is getting laid off but she seems to be happy about it and she seems to be ready for it. I say, "more-power-to-her!" My mother worked her butt off for the entirety of my life, and my brother and I have everything to show for it, however, my mother doesn't have much to show for herself. I'm glad that she finally has someone in her life that can take care of her the way she deserves to be taken care of. So retirement will begin early for my mom and I couldn't be happier for her.

I also got some good news at the beginning of the weekend;I found out I'll be working summer school this year!! YAY! There are many great things about this news, I'll only be working 6 weeks of the summer, I'll only be working 4 days of the week and I'll only be working 4 hours of the day. I'll know my daily schedule, without random calls and rescheduling AND I'll be making 3-4 times as much money as I did last summer!!! YIPPEE!!

Yesterday was the garage sale-ing day. Yep, it was! I went out and about with my in-laws and my aunt/uncle in-laws and spent about 6 hours of the day browsing garage sales. It was a fun day - cold - but fun. I only managed to find a few games for my classroom and a couple of books/posters. I think I spent about $5 the whole day. CRAZY, but true. I didn't have much on my radar as Chip and I have more furniture that we know what to do with in this house and it's hard to make decorating decisions without Chip by my side. We definitely balance each other out when it comes to decorating taste.

All-in-all I think it's been a swell weekend. I'm looking forward to a relaxing Sunday and I hope it warms up.
