Well my mom has been here for 5 days now. I can say that I am sleep deprived. The hockey game was a blast. We won 6/3. Beer and Hockey is the way to start any visit. After the game we walked back to our hotel for Free Happy Hour. That is, the drinks are free. Yes, free. In case you have never heard of Embassy Suites you should really go. Needless to say, we might have been a little tipsy on our walk to a nearby Spanish restaurant that my roomie and I wanted to try. Apparently my mother didn’t remember how we got back to the room but to be fair, I vaguely remember teaching a very young boy to swim. For some reason my mom likes to swim drunk. The next morning, we slowly made our way north on our 5 hour drive. It was painful.
For Valentines Day I bought my mom a gun like the good daughter that I am. I also may have gotten her addicted to Skyrim. Have to say she is Lvl 4 and hasn’t died yet which
is fairly amazing. Beyond that she has been doing a couple of projects around the house and just being a general nuisance. I am going to try to take her snow shoeing this weekend if the weather cooperates.
Mother’s flight home is on Tuesday. She was going to fly out of our little airport instead of driving another 5 hours to the city but our airport is under construction. I will be driving down again. It is my fault, of course, that there is not flight for her. Sigh….
