This week has been a very, very busy week, but truly a week filled of happy times spent with my parents, I have really enjoyed every minute with them and realize how much I miss and love them.
Saturday- they arrived about 5:30 to my house, so we decided to take them out
to eat. We took them to Nagoya, we introduced them to Steve and
Sandy…..They were so excited to meet parents…..and made the a
true Chinese dinner….which was absolutely delious…..my parents
want to take him back home with them….since Chinese food in New
Mexico sucks!!!! We had a great time….My Mother actually tried Sushi
and liked it. Came home and hung out for a while….watched TV and
went to bed……after a very long trip.
Sunday – Woke up and made everyone breakfast…..it was nice to sit around
and talk. Everyone got ready to get the day started…..Dan and I ran
some errands, while mommy and daddy went to go see Kathleen and
Marcos and the kids……They spent a few hours and came back to my
house. I made a nice dinner,…..at least I tried…..except the potatoes
became a diaster…..but all was good…..we laughed and talked all night,
just hung out, watched TV and had great conversation.
Monday – We got up and had breakfast all together, and then Dan left for work.
got to hang with my parent, then they drove me to the office, which
was helpful for Dan….He did not have to run back and twice. My
parents came into the office and met everyone and saw the place. They
had things to do…..get a belt for truck,etc…… they meet us home for
dinner,,,,,we took them to Roxanne’s for a nice Italian dinner….Had a
great time and then we went for dessert at Baskin Robbins…….(of
course I was dieing in pain,,,,,,but I tried to keep a smile on my face…..
I was determined to make sure they never knew the pain….I truly
just wanted to die…….but I got thru it…..just wish the sugar lows would
have stopped…….at least they were not to serious, where I lost memory
The rest of the remaining days spent by me were nice……Having breakfast every morning with my parents, them driving me to the office……Having nice a nice lunch just me and my parents at Chilpote’s……going to Lottios Bakery……going to some stores…..Having dinners, some home cooked or out, especially Valentine’s Day (all 4 of us went to Nagoya for a great Dinner, such a spread of food…..my parents got to experience Steve’s Deep fried cheese cake – they loved it).
Then their time with me was up and my parents went to my sister Kathleen’s where they spent a week….helping Kathleen and spending quality time with Olivia and Marcos…..which was so special and meaningful for them). They also spent time with Erika and the girls….they were amazed at how grown up Maya and Bella were.
Then like all good things…..they had to head home. It was very emotional for me….Dan and I drove down to Kathleen’s so we could say good-bye. Of course I cried, but I was happy to know they had a good trip and enjoyed themselves…..that was the most important thing. Then the worrying began, making sure my parents trip was safe…….which with some delay to weather, they finally got home……and this trip was a big success…..and I was so happy.
On that note, another major success was Dan’s fathers 90th Birthday. Dan and I took his parents to the Borgota for his father’s 90th Birthday. We spent the day at the Borgota, Dan’s father got to play Craps and won about $600 dollars, his mother played the slots and won about $400, Dan played slots with his Dad and won about $300, and I -well as usual not as lucky……just managed to break even.
We took them to Dinner at the Metropolitan Cafe…..they had 2 gin and tonics each and a nice dinner, we had Cake brought out and we song happy birthday…..all in all it was a nice day. It made me very happy to see Dan’s smiling face……knowing he gave his Dad a memorable day. The nice thing was he had two cakes….because the day of his actual birthday (the next day after the Borgota event he had my cake I baked him)….which they enjoyed.
I know that I probably missed some things….due to sugar lows in the time frame of everything……but all turned out to be good for everyone. Dan and I are so happy that we made our parents so happy……some things are just priceless and this time was all worth it. Very happy and feeling like I have accomplished something in my like for a change.
STILL PLAYING CATCH UP/ THIS PAST WEEKEND
This weekend was a very busy weekend…….spent most of the weekend shopping for things for the new office….it was fun spending the time with Dan picking out things to decorate ( what love about our relationship…we always have a good time together/we just always have fun-every moment spent together is special and fun)……I love seeing Dan doing what he loves to do and what he is so good at doing. I know he is so stressed…..and just wants to get it opened and up and running. I will be happy when we are moved in….and all the major stress he has will be a little less, but then again, I don’t think that will ever happen…..he always internally stresses,,,,,,,,I guess that makes him good at what he does,,,,,,Gotta love him.
We did do something fun…..we went to a St. Patick’s church dinner party as guest of Chuck and Donna. It was such a nice time…….We got to see people we have not seen in a long time……It was so nice, catching up with friends. We even won a gift basket from Massage Envy……(of course Dan won it…..all the tickets I put in won nothing….just my usual luck…..none at all). We had to leave earlier than I would have liked, but I felt so sick to my stomach……I was trying so hard not to toss my cookies,,,,,,,and between my head and stomach killing me……it just put a damper on the evening…….but it was just great to see my dear friends Chuck and Donna……I am very greatful. So I came home and went straight to bed.
I woke on Sunday, still feeling under the weather…..but we ran some errands and did more preparing of the new office. I made a nice dinner for Dan and I, made the meals for Mondays lunch. Finished doing my usual chores and finally, sat down and watched some TV……..still feeling like shit, just decided to end the day and went to bed.
