Too Short Long Weekend

I spent most of the long weekend with my mom.  I got to her house Saturday afternoon and we went to Moonlight Amphitheater to watch the musical Anything Goes.  It's an outdoor theater with lawn seating so we were sitting in lawn chairs outside while watching the show.  We brought Subway, chips, cookies and candy to eat.   It's been years since the last time we went and we liked it so much we decided we're going to try to go every summer.

Sunday morning my mom and I went to the gym together.  When we got back she fired up the grill.  My parents were planning to spend Labor Day at my sister's house where it's 105 degrees which is way too hot for grilling so she did it at home instead and this way I got to take some food home with me.  We sat outside in the back yard and drank wine and talked.  The weather was perfect.  It's been in the 80's for the last couple of weeks.  Over the course of the weekend we watched three movies and talked and talked and talked some more.  I wasn't even planning to spend two nights.  There is really nothing to rush home to since the husband is gone and I was enjoying myself so I stayed.  I always have a great time with my mom and I love it that we are so close.

I came home Monday morning, went straight to the gym and then had the rest of the day to myself.  I got to see and talk to Mj on face time.  I watched TV and took a nap and just relaxed.  Wow, is it really 10 o'clock already?  Time for bed.  The weekend went way too fast as always.

The show at the outdoor theater sounds fabulous! Glad you had a great holiday weekend, because I know you are missing your soldier!

Yeah, it was really fun! Something different to do. Mj isn't gone nearly as long as yours is but YES-I do miss him!!

Even with all the relaxing I did this weekend {minus cleaning my house from tip to bottom} I still felt it was way too short. Good thing I am taking off Friday :)

Sounds like you had a great time with your mother!

Looks like it was a really enjoyable weekend! It's always nice spending time bonding with parents, especially after you get married. And that outdoor theatre sounds wonderful!

Yes, this holiday weekend did go by entirely too fast. And I totally agree - it definitely takes some practice balancing time w/ family when you wanna rush back home to hubby!

I'm so impressed that you cleaned house! I didn't even think about it but it's on my agenda for this weekend. And yes, it was a really nice time.

I do feel very lucky to have a good relationship with my parents because I know not everyone has that for whatever reasons.
