What's up with the weather? Today's high was supposedly 57 but I don't think it made it that high. And the wind?!? It was just simply a miserable day outside. I can't remember a Mother's Day like this. Here are the gifts I received for Mother's Day: from Hubby and both girls I received a Disney Cruise Line book (so I can do even MORE reading about our upcoming trip), the 2nd season of Grey's Anatomy on DVD, a Molina (Cardinal) T-shirt, and a Cardinal bracelet that looks as if it was made from baseball leather. I had another bracelet just like it and I wore that one out. Funny thing about the Molina T-shirt.....I have shirts hanging in our basement with the names Vina, Grudzielanek, Rolen, and Eckstein on them. We joke that next year on Halloween, we are all 4 going to dress up like traded St. Louis Cardinals! Ha ha! Well, I like Yadier Molina now as well as Rick Ankiel so I hinted to Hubby that a Molina shirt would be nice (my birthday is also in May so he has more than one reason to buy me gifts!). But then again, I am almost afraid to get a shirt with someone's name on it because inevitably, they get traded.
HEY!!!! I need to get an Isringhausen shirt!! YEAH, then maybe they would trade or release him! That would be GREAT!
From B1, I got a real flower planted in a decorated pot and a fake hyacinth flower made from plastic 6-pack rings that her school recycles. It's really pretty cool looking and does look like an actual hyacinth. She spray painted it blue. From B2, I got a magnet of a picture of me and her that she also made at school. Those gifts are very special. I know someday when they are too "big" to make me things, I will miss it.
I went to graduation today at Triad. I haven't missed a graduation in my 10 years teaching (not even the year I gave birth a month before) and today's was a good ceremony. It always makes me feel good when the graduates applaud us teachers as we enter the gym. It makes me feel like what I do is really worth it. Then we went to dinner with my family at the same restaurant where we went on Easter. I had a stuffed pork chop which was really yummy! I hope all of you had a good Mother's Day as well!
