Whew, it was busy last week.

The Sandro clan was on the go with end of the year school functions for the kiddies lasting past their (and my) bedtimes. We hit two movies at an actual theater and had dinner at a sit down restaurant (not drive thru). What's a working mother to do?

Enjoy it.

My Mother's Day weekend usually involves a lot of lounging around the pool. This year, Hubby and I went out sans kids to an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. It was seafood night, so I went a little crazy tasting the variety of dishes on display: crab, frog legs, lobster, oysters (raw, cooked) various shrimp dishes, sashimi. Yummy.

Afterwards, we went to see a rated R movie, CABIN IN THE WOODS. I can't recall the last time I saw a movie that wasn't kid friendly. 

We totally got a kick out of all the Cthulu-esque references—ancient, sleeping gods who have to be placated with human sacrifice— done Josh Whedon style, bloody AWESOME. He also used actors beloved by those familiar with the Whedon-verse.

On Mother's Day we had a barbeque at the in-laws and the kids played in the pool. It was a wonderful, relaxing, family oriented time.

My poor son didn't have too great of a time though. The boy is ten and chock full of energy, but he crashed on Sunday at 4 p.m. and didn't roll out of bed until Monday morning. He stayed home from school...poor baby. We spent some bonding time together. At this age, the only time he wants to be "babied" is when he's sick. Although, I did get the--"Mom, you know I'm not five, right?"

With such a busy week, I didn't get a whole lot of writing done. I finished a chapter in my new ms FIXED. It’s a sequel to JUJU's CHILD. The old characters have been invading my dreams and demanding a continuation to their storyline. I'm curious to see what they have planned.

So what did you do for Mother's Day weekend?


  1. Sounds like a fun but tiring week. We're going through those end of the year kid functions too, band concerts and Japan trip meetings.

    A sequel to JuJu! That's wonderful.

  2. Hi Michelle,

    The kids are in elementary and Jr High, but their spring concerts were accidently scheduled for the same day at the auditorium at the high school. I think we were the only parents who had kids assigned for both performances.

    Staff didn't know about the problem until that night when a horde of kids descended upon the stage. They managed to combine both programs, but we were there for three and a half hours.

    I'm excited about the sequel. Mala, George, and Landry are stirring up trouble, and I need to get them onto paper before I turn completely batty from listening to the voices in my head, LOL.

  3. Belated Happy Mother's Day, sis! And yey, a sequel! I wonder what happens next. And I'm writing something new too. It's a little different from what I'm used too. *naughty smile*

  4. Thank you, Kate. Give my love to your awesome Mother. I can't wait to read your new project. You always come up with something exciting, heehee!


Now it's your turn. What do you think?
