Mother's Day

I had a very nice Mother's Day. As always I feel lots of love from my children.

Saturday Brady and I went to lunch at Sizzler for a great salad bar and endless shrimp side. Yum! This is wonderful to me, because Brady NEVER wants to go out and eat! But, he did it for me as a Mother's Day gift. I enjoy going out to eat now and again. My favorite place is Sizzler or Red Lobster. 
Sunday Brady wrote me a really nice note about how much he loves me. 
Too bad it's not in ink, but this is what it says:

Dear Mom,

I love it when you feed me, I love how you always love to have everything clean and orderly, I love it when we talk when I actually want to talk, I love that you would get a job that lets you be a mother, I love that you put me into piano lessons, but most importantly, I love you!

( I loved the "talk when I actually want to talk - isn't that the truth with teenagers). LOL!

Our church program was wonderful. They had 3 seniors in school, give talks about mothers. I loved each talk! 

In primary they made the teachers go to Relief Society and Priesthood, while the Y/W came in a took care of our children. I don't know what the purpose was for that ... but it made me angry. I don't like to be in Relief Society. I always BEG to be in Primary and yet, they made me go. I was half tempted to go home - but I went... I'm still not happy about that. 

I knew about it, because Stephanie from our Primary Presidency called me earlier in the week to give me a heads up. She said, "Out of all of our teachers, I know you are the one who won't want to go". She knows me so well. I tried to beg her to let me help and stay - but they wouldn't let me do it. 

I still don't understand why it was important to MAKE me go to Relief Society.. I know I have a bad attitude. 
 Jason and Sharon gave me an old iPhone they had to use as an iPod. It's not an active phone - which is great for me as I will NEVER purchase a phone plan (I use prepaid tracfone). I've been wanting an iPod for a while now. When I listen to audio books, sometimes the words skip and stutter which makes me cranky during a good part of the book! Now I have a fun touch iPod to listen to them on without skipping! Thanks Jason and Sharon! I totally love it!
I was surprised when there was a knock on the door Sunday afternoon. It was my home teacher Brother Newby and Glenna who dropped in with their 4 little boys and brought me a present. It was VERY  nice of them... Aaaahhhhh and scented Caribbean ESCAPE.. Love it! 

My mother's day was low key, wonderful and I felt loved and adored (except for the Relief Society thing ha ha ha). My children and home teachers are wonderful!

Sorry you didn't like getting kicked out of primary. They didn't do that in our ward and I would've loved it. :) Glad the rest of your weekend went well though. I don't think our children know how much little notes like Brady's mean to us. You are raising such a thoughtful young man, and I'm sure your other son is also. I've never smelled that scent before but it looks good.
