Mother's Day 2013....cold temps again here in Iowa. Just 34 degrees when I woke up, and despite the fact that it is sunny and looks beautiful, I've been cold all day.
The girls all played in the kids' bell choir at church and I taught Sunday School for the pre-K class. Last night we went out to eat with friends in celebration of Mother's Day, so today we snacked for lunch. Everyone humored me and took me to see Admission with Tina Fey.
My sister-in-law told me it was based on a book, and about ten minutes into the movie I knew exactly which book:
I'd read Admission when it was published in 2010, and although I couldn't recall details, remember really enjoying it. Well, I liked the movie, but the book is always better.
We have two softball games for Big Sister this week, soccer practices and a game, gymnastics, and my fitness class each day. I am having a hard time concentrating on reading right now because on Thursday our oldest daughter has her yearly exam in Iowa City with her oncologist. She appears to be fine, but there is always the fear of a recurrence. If you are a person who prays, please pray for her to have a very boring, routine check-up and the all clear for another year. It is probably a good thing we are busy this week as that is preferable to sitting at home worrying.
I've had a bad day of snacking and right now am waiting for Big Sister to whip up a batch of cookies....calories don't count on Mother's Day, do they?
