Happy Mother's Day!

It's been a pretty good day even though everything seemed to go wrong to a point.

It started last night. We had a storm move through and it knocked the power out around 9:30. I was actually asleep (hadn't been for long), but woke up because I heard Jacob. I set the alarm on my Fitbit, just in case and went back to bed. (Mike had come in, so Jacob was waiting around with him). I think that the power was off for about an hour. My alarm clock does have a backup battery, so thankfully the time was still correct and the alarm was set. Whew!

I still managed to wake up before the alarm, so I went ahead and got up. I had my Energize, read my Bible and devotional and took my shower. When I got out of the bathroom, I heard Mike's phone make a noise - he got a few texts from his boss. Because of the power outage last night (a big section of Greenfield, Orient and rural Fontanelle were out), Cardinal was offline. So, Mike went to work on Mother's Day. I got both boys up to get ready to head to church.

Today was one of those "emotional" days. Every year we recognize the graduating seniors on Mother's Day and the praise team gives a gift to any of the active kids that are still with the praise team. So, it was Matthew and Sophia. We fill a laundry basket with gifts (usually stuff for college dorm living) and present it to them. As praise team leader, I'm the one who presents and says something. Yeah, I cried a little bit. These two have been with the group since 7th grade and they will definitely be missed. Matthew will be around through the summer, but Sophia is leaving a week after graduation because she is going to be a counselor at Camp Okaboji before she heads to Wartburg.

Anyway, there was pie after church. I'm not sure who all made the pies, but they had them in individual containers, so that people could grab them and go or visit with others. We brought ours home and I was even nice and brought a piece home for Mike.

The initial plan was to go out to eat for lunch, I just couldn't decide where. Then since Mike worked, it delayed the time. So, we decided supper. My first choice was closed for the day, my second choice closed early because they had been busy all weekend and pretty much ran out of food, and my third choice wasn't open. We ended up ordering from the bowling alley and just ate at home. It was still yummy! I love chicken strips and onion rings and I don't eat them a lot, so I enjoyed it.

1. Nutrition: did get my veggies - on the low end, but did get some.
2. Fitness: Day 42 - rest day
3. Personal: Read my Bible and devotional; did some reading and I've been watching/listening to baseball; phone/computer time was okay.

Tomorrow - I have one final rehearsal with AMS (they are singing at Baccalaureate) and rehearsal with HS Choir for graduation. I'll try to tackle some laundry and cleaning in between.

    Mother's Day is so busy at restaurants. Onion rings and Chicken strips and Pie sounds great. Glad you had a good day. I can't imagine you ever sleeping in. Why set an alarm? :-) I just ended up taking a walk with my son and gardening. I watched the Chosen and slept well. Have a good week.
