QoC, it will happen. Though I bet it is frustrating to feel so close and have it peter out.
Ah, Mother's Day. My DH is a dream. First of all, our weekend was really busy. He helped a friend really early Saturday am, then took DD shopping for my mother's day gift and all the groceries we needed, then mowed the lawn, then put up shelves in the landing (I FINALLY FINISHED THAT DANG PROJECT!), then stayed up with me until 2 am getting the house cleaned and two quiches made for Mother's Day brunch (hosted here for his Mom). He made the most beautiful quiches ever.
Then he got up sometime butt early this morning, set up my Mother's Day gift, got DD up and had her make me a card, and then made me breakfast in bed. But when they delivered my breakfast in bed they decided "the bed was too lumpy, let's have breakfast on the porch" and they had gotten me a table and chairs for our deck! I'm so excited! I've wanted a set for the deck for quite some time and it was so nice to sit out there and have my decaf and look at the paper. Just lovely. The back yard is fenced so I could sit out there in my PJ's and just relax. Ah. Oh, and my DD got me a little sunhat to wear when I garden so that I don't get sunburnt. Very sweet. I look like a little old lady but I'm going to wear that hat faithfully.
Then we all got dressed and headed off to early service with DH's parents. Back here for a beautiful brunch totally put together by DH. We enjoyed it at my new table. Then in-laws went home, DH took DD for a walk to get her down for her nap and *I* got to take a nap. What heaven! Then this afternoon my Mom, sister and nephew came up and we went out to a local park for a nice picnic dinner. DH ran around with the kids and put up with my crazy family with a minimum of displayed annoyance...a difficult task. The only downside to the whole day was dealing with my sister's completely insensitive parenting style...but I'm not going to focus on that. It was just a lovely day.
Now, reality will hit me tomorrow morning when I realize I have neglected my work completely AND have my home visit in the afternoon. I'm going to have to work my butt off tomorrow. Sigh.
Off to bed.
