To begin with, let me say that I had a very nice Mother’s Day… Hayden was pleasant for the vast majority of the day, and that made the whole day a winner! First off, I received my Mother's Day gifts which included a Mother’s day video that Randy made me, a gift certificate for a manicure/pedicure, and a CD that Randy made me… then we went to “early service” at church, ate lunch with my parents, Hayden came home and took a nap, then we went to Randy’s mom’s for dinner, and finally we returned home and Hayden went to bed (well, eventually he went to bed... he really wasn't "feeling" bedtime last night)… at the end of the day though, I would say it was definitely a good Mother's Day!
I also wanted to let everyone know that we did get the lot! They counter-offered and we accepted it… so needless to say, we have land… it’s on Anson Street in Fayetteville which is on Mount Sequoyah (off of Ruth which is off of Rockwood)… very exciting!
And lastly, I thought I would mention that I am going on a “vacation” in a week… I say “vacation” because it is a 6-day rafting/camping trip at the ‘Grand Canyon’ and I am not much for outdoor-activities… we are leaving next Wednesday (the 21st of May) and are returning the following Thursday (May 29th)… the “we” includes Randy, myself, my sister (Mary), my sister’s boyfriend (Clark), my dad (Ted), my dad’s brother (Paul), and my cousin (Ashley: Paul’s daughter) as well as quite a few other people… my mom as well as my MIL are watching Hayden… I am sure I will miss him, but at least I know he is in great hands. This trip will be an interesting adventure, to say the least. We have a meeting this evening to discuss the trip… I am nervous about this trip and quite apprehensive, but it is for my dad (it is his 50th birthday present) and I would do almost anything for him.
