Happy Mother's Day

I'm such a blog slacker. I go in waves- have you noticed that? Nothing for a week or two, then I overload it with two or three posts in one day. I need to work on that!

Anyway, I had a wonderful Mother's Day. Charlotte's gift to me was a full day of "daddy sitting", where I can take a Saturday (or ask Jared to take a day off work during the week) and have the whole day to relax and enjoy myself without the usual responsibilities. And Jared gave me a gift certificate redeemable at the culinary or retail establishment of my choice... a.k.a. $cash$! Updating my wardrobe would be just about pointless since I'll only be able to wear whatever I bought for another month or two, and I could have a field day in Hobby Lobby, but there aren't any craft projects that I have in my mind right now. So I'm thinking of keeping the gift certificate in my pocket for a little bit, waiting until food is something I'm able to enjoy again, then going out and celebrating at the Melting Pot! Yummy!

So other than spoiling me rotten with my gifts and changing all diapers on Sunday, Jared also let me sleep in that morning and for our Sunday afternoon nap when Charlotte woke up before I was ready to. I took a 2 1/2 hour nap!! It was wonderful! We were all especially worn out from having half the church over on Saturday evening. Not really half, but we did have about 45 people show up. But don't worry, we invited them all :) Some good friends of ours in the church, Austin & Ashley, are moving to Tallahassee for Austin to attend med school at FSU. But before you look down on them for that, they are both UF grads and, therefore, huge Gator football fans. We took turns hosting some football parties with them this past fall and it just won't seem the same without them there singing "We Are The Boys" at the end of the 3rd quarter with us. (That's a whole 'nother story in itself. None of us can sing. It was not a pretty thing to hear.) It's not hard to find a guy who is obsessed with Gator football, but to find one with a wife who shares his obsession, and for them to live close to us... well that's just something special.
