We have finally enjoyed some beautiful weather. Rain for tomorrow and the weekend though. It's ok b/c the fire danger is high and we need it.

1 month until my son graduates! Yes, we are counting down.

I have not been on the computer much lately. I've only had time to scan fb quickly. I made it on here a few times and then something happened and I had to exit out. I have been very busy packing and moving my mother to my house. Many car loads and it has just about killed me. I am small and not meant to be in the moving business.

My mother is moving to FL the day after my son graduates. She is staying here until the move b/c she sold her home. She spent a few winters in FL and feels she will be happy if she moves there. She is moving alone and is almost 75. All her family is here in Maine and she doesn't know when she will see any of us again. She does have 1 neice in FL, but she never even saw her when she was there before. I hope she doesn't have more medical issues that require help b/c we are all in Maine.

That is quite the big move at 75 and to a totally different climate. What area is she moving to? There are many areas in Florida that are almost strictly retiree areas, like the Villages and Sun City Center (where my grandparents live.) They never seem to be bored. Hopefully, she finds a good senior community.

Good luck to your very adventurous mother!

Congrats to your son.

SadieDog, I hope the move for your mom goes smoothly!

And a graduation! Wow!

We've got Nemo's First Communion tomorrow and I'm trying to get my baking out of the way now before it gets too hot. It's supposed to be 80 today.

She is moving to Merritt Island near Port Canaveral in the same senior mobile home park where she has stayed for a few winters. It's on Banana River. She likes to take walks and look at the river. This park has some of the last very old (60's) mobile homes left in the area. Otherwise she would never be able to afford it. She had to sell her mobile home here to be able to buy one in FL. The park rent in FL is $140 more than her rented land in my little town. She lives off SS so it will be difficult. She also had to give up most of her belongings. She certainly can't afford to have her furniture moved. She is moving into an almost empty place. She won't even have a bed, but she was left a couch to sleep on until she can afford a bed. She is thinking maybe living there 2 or 3 years then moving back to Maine. Much will probably depend on her health.

You're up early! Happy Mother's Day to you.

Is the Communion today; or was that yesterday?

I am up early. I've been up since 430am, couldn't go back to sleep. Not sure if my brain is in overdrive, I'm missing my mom, or a combination of the two.

First communion was yesterday and went very well! I was so proud of Nemo. He is such a good kid and did so well. And the party afterwards was smooth sailing all the way! My husband and I have worked a really good system for when we entertain. I do a lot of running, but everyone had a great time, and that's what matters to me.

Then about 930 last night I collapsed on the couch with a glass of wine. It was lovely.

Yeah. There was an article in the papers here where it was saying Mother's Day sucked for a lot of people without moms or with bad feelings towards their moms. It is one of those bitter sweet things.

Glad that Nemo did good yesterday. Hope you get to rest up today....with more wine.

I spent 30 minutes just now doing some sit ups and stretches in my living room. Seemed to be a better idea than being a couch potato whilst watching the TV. Now, I'm not so sure!

Sounds like the party was a success!

Sorry you couldn't sleep. Mother's Day can be rough after you lose your mom, very bittersweet. The sweet being our kids of course.
