Well that was actually kind of fun…

We had the little gathering Friday night and that went really well.  Gemma and her husband joined us for dinner and then Fran came over a little later for dessert.  We all got a little tipsy.  Fran ended up staying the night, which was kind of awesome.

Saturday morning we got up and got some breakfast and picked the kid up.  Apparently her illness was due to allergies.  She seemed fine by the time we got her.  We headed to the ren faire and had a lovely time.  This is the first time I’ve been to this one and I’ll definitely go again next year.  Josh even said he’ll go back again.  We did some shopping, ate some snow cones, just a really nice time.  Josh got me a necklace for Mother’s Day.

It’s a hand poured pewter Celtic Love Knot.  It’s beautiful.  I’m wearing it today.

After the faire we went and hung out with Gemma for awhile before going to dinner.  After that it was off to Josh’s half-sister’s graduation party.  We finally went home and crashed.

Sunday morning we got up and did the breakfast thing again before taking the kid home.  Josh and I then we back to our place and started doing chores.  It was a pretty productive day.  We got almost all of what I’d wanted to get done accomplished.

When my mom got home we all went out to a Chinese buffet for dinner.  They were having crab legs in honor of Mother’s Day.  I love crab legs but I hate to crack them.  Josh went up and got a huge plate full and a bowl of butter and proceeded to crack them all for me.  That’s love folks.

He was actually really good all weekend.  I didn’t have too much trouble getting him out of bed, he behaved himself, we didn’t fight at all, it was quite awesome.

My mood has been pretty decent.  I feel like maybe now he really will start trying to be a better husband.  On Friday he got me a bouquet of roses.  He said he figured he’d do something to upset me before the weekend was over so he wanted to apologize in advance.  Kind of corny, but sweet.

I’ve only got 6 days of work left before the trip.  We won’t actually leave until the 23rd, but I took the day before so I can pack and get ready.  I haven’t gone on a trip like this in years and I want to make sure I don’t forget anything.  I’m not sure if I’ll be able to write while I’m gone or not.  First, I’m not sure when I’d have time and second, I’m not sure I can do it from my iPad.  I’m sure I’ll come back with lots of pictures.
