I was up early, cleaned my kitchen, oven, stove top. Rearranged pots and pans in cabinet so my 3 different dutch ovens can fit in it. In the afternoon, I put chicken in the oven to roast. Son and his family came over with 2 kittens so spend some time taking photos of kittens. Now I am exhausted !

Took our "daughter" to get her prescriptions and then to own home.

Went to church this morning in bad mood because I was still upset about her hospital stay and the fact that it is mother's day and I always get teary-eyed missing my own.

Got a huge surprise when a good friend gave me a "Happy Mothering Day" card for all I do for all the young people in my life, got 5 carnation from various said kids (most real Mom's got one or two).

Came home to another 5 facebook messages from other "kids".

DH took me to KFC for my Mother's Day meal (I love this meal for one they have right now and I could then share french fries with my dogs).

Went to MIL's with cake and flowers which she absolutely loved both.

Came home had a short nap

Baked a salmon and made rice, carrots, and biscuits for supper

Now am going to watch an old western movie - the border lent me some DVD's - not sure if it will be Roy Rogers or John Wayne!

Last day before work..the plan was to relax and do nothing.

BUT I've already started the dishwasher that will soon have to be emptied,
Started a load of clothes that will soon need to be dried and folded and put away
there's another load waiting to start
Made Paul breakfast and lunch and started the beef heart for dinner
Paper work should take about another hour (started yesterday)
I have to iron
I have to clean from the in-laws visit ( wash sheets and remake bed)
Have to empty the garbage and litter box
Then I have to decide what to wear all week... this will be hard since I have NO clothes that fit.
If I finish all that...I'll take a nap
color my hair
finish making dinner
read and go to bed.

way too much is on my schedule today.
1. I just got the car washed and it looks like yukko.
so I took it back honestly thinking they didn't do the right side, they did, it's hard water baked in over 3 weeks and it will take acid to get it off. Oh gee yeah!
2. Sally's for beauty treatments for DD hair for the wedding she's in in NYC this weekend
3. Forgot wax, had to go back there again, after failed car wash, so I can do her eyebrows too, and mine
4. Unpack and repack
5. Drive to Vegas or not, maybe tomorrow
6. Call several on my list of things to do that I forgot last week when I originally made the dang list
7. and too much more to list, but life is good
