Rainy day!

So yesterday it rained, a lot, all day! The girls were bored, and since there wasn't any thunder or lightning, I let them go out to play in the rain! This brought back so many memories as a kid. We always went outside (in the summer) when it rained. I don't let my kids do it a lot, and I have no idea why. When I told them to go outside they looked at me like I was a nut, like I had totally lost my mind. This made me feel bad, so I felt like I should take a couple of cute pictures to document. A couple pictures turned into a lot, and some videos too! Then, I thought of a song that Mary loves, that would was running in my head the whole time they were out. This inspired me to create a Montage! Watch it, it's not too long. They were so adorable!

On Mother's Day

Mothers day was great! Actually, it was more like a Mother's day weekend! Jason decided to take me shopping for clothes the Friday before Mothers Day because I was in serious need of some new clothes, and I would never go out and buy for myself because I always feel that the money should either be saved, or the kids need something more than I do. I'm glad he made me get all we did, but it didn't stop me from feeling bad about it and cringing when the lady was done wringing us up at JC Penny. Jason told me to just keep breathing. It wasn't that bad actually. I got a lot, and we hit some great deals.

Saturday I also went to get a contact lens eye exam. It has been months since I threw away my last pair of contacts. Again, I didn't want to spend the money so I was dealing with just my glasses. That is hard for me to do because I hate wearing them, they make me feel claustrophobic and uncomfortable, so I'll go without them while dealing with terrible headaches from eye strain. Not a good thing to do. Anyway, I did a little research before deciding where to go and I found a great deal. America's best sells a membership that gives you 3 years of free eye exams, and 10% off of contact lenses for 99 dollars! A regular contact lens eye exam will cost 69 dollars, so for 30 more you get a whole 3 years worth. That will give me no excuse to let my prescription expire. So, anyway I did that, I got my contacts, I even got a cheap pair of sunglasses. It feels good to wear new clothes, to be able to see without feeling uncomfortable, and even look stylish!

Sunday morning I woke up to breakfast in bed. Jason and the girls do this every year and I love it! I spent the day cleaning my house because it needed it. As much as I would have liked to just lay around, this needed to be done. The girls helped me, so that was great. They cleaned their room and did a really great job on it, which is very unusual for them. Mary did the morning dishes too. They were really very sweet all day, and that made all the cleaning I did that much easier. Later Jason's parents came over and when Jason came home from work we ordered Chinese food. This is Jason's mom, and my, favorite thing to eat. We have gone to restaurants on Mother's days in the past, but that is such a pain. They are always so busy, it takes forever to get seated, and it's all just such a hassle. This way it takes 15 minutes for the food to get done so you can just basically leave to pick it up right after calling it in. It was very good, as usual. Later we gave Jason's mom her gifts. We got her a DVD version of Anna's 6 year Transplant Anniversary Montage that is on the side of this blog. She loved it, and It really nice to watch on a bigger screen. We also got her a nice toaster. Sounds lame, but she really needed a new one, and she is like me, she won't spend money easily. That was it, it was a nice mothers day. Hope you all had a good one too!

Alex decided that is was just too messy with the wrapping paper on the floor, so she took it upon herself to clean up.
