A wonderful long weekend!

My mom came to visit! 

Friday was one of those days where I don't remember doing anything, yet I had over 10,000 steps on my pedometer!  

I got out of work, and picked up mom from the airport.  Misty was thrilled!  We ate at Cheeseburger in Paradise.  (Seriously, their new menu?  AMAZING!!)  We ran some errands, and picked up my plastic ware from Wal Mart.  Doesn't my bathroom look nice and organized?

Saturday we went to Norfolk to Nauticus.   Mom wanted to see the USS Wisconsin, and I'd never been.  What a nice place!

The Spousal Equivalent met an eel.
When you swim in the sea, and an eel bites your knee, that a moray.
I ended up with a sunburn.... and a new appreciation for anyone that has ever served on a ship!
Sunday we did laundry.  It had to happen!

Monday we went to Lee Hall Mansion. A really nice tour and a beautiful house, just down the road! 

Today I got up and brought her to the airport.  I cried most of the way to work.

Now, we walked and drank and chatted and ATE all the time when she was here.  

And look at that!  I managed to lose weight!  I haven't seen a number like that in quite some time.  

Go me!

Sounds like a great long weekend! Glad you got to spend time with your mom. And that caption on the eel pic cracks me up. :)

Thanks so much for linking up with us for the Hump Day Hop!
