Sprinkles to my Cupcake

Yesterday, when Justin and Jackie came over, she’d given me a Mother’s Day gift. She also had a card, with a letter she’d written to me, inside. I planned to wait until they’d left, to read it. By the time they went home, I needed to get supper started. I got busy with cooking, cleaning up, getting the kids ready for Monday, and Adam and I needed to take our shower. I had left the card downstairs. This morning, after everybody was gone to work and school, I went down there. I like to clean up things that weren’t put away, and straighten up. I saw the card, sitting on the couch. I sat down to read it. My goodness, I love my best friend. She wrote the most touching things.


When Jackie moved in with Justin, she took a homemade decorative thing that said “EAT”, we’d hung in my dining room. She made me a new one, for Mother’s Day. I love it!

After a very unproductive Sunday, I’ve gotten busy today. I had a lot to do. I needed to get this week’s menu planned, and the groceries I’d be needing. The floors needed swept, vacuumed, and mopped. Bathrooms needed to be cleaned. Bedding needed washed. I’ve gotten all those things accomplished. I’ve got about an hour, before the kids get home from school. I decided to make some brownies. So, I’ve got those baking, now. Jackie text and asked if I’d mind if she stopped by. I told her, of course not! She should be over, soon.

I had a fantastic weekend, with my family. We’re so close to Summer break, for the kids. I can’t wait! We already have lots of fun things planned. Adam and I are great. I think he actually has made progress, helping me to stop rolling my eyes at him. I haven’t done it for days, which is a big deal for me! If I understand, he means it, when he tells me something, I do work to “obey”. He’s definitely working to make sure I understand, when he means it, too. That helps to save us from misunderstandings, hurt feelings, as well as my behind.

It’s been important to me, that we don’t lose our playfulness. Adam and I tease each other. We laugh together. There’s a whole lot of silly, in our relationship. That’s something I love. We’ve had plenty of laughs and sarcasm, the last few days. It can be done, without doing the things he finds disrespectful, it turns out. That makes me happy. I know he feels the same. Progress is being made!

  1. I’m glad you had such a fantastic weekend and that you got such great gifts for Mother’s Day. It’s nice to see that you and Adam get along so well and that you are happy. In Germany, the summer holidays don’t start until mid-July.
