Three more days ...

May 8th, 2011 at 04:52 pm

... of no spending.

Today my son and DIL took me out to brunch for Mother's Day, along with my DIL's mother. We were intending to go to a rather upscale restaurant where their friend is a chef, but the place was not open at 10 am, even though they had advertised a Mother's Day Brunch. I think 10 am is a great time for brunch, but I guess the restaurant didn't agree! Well, we were all starving, having skipped breakfast, so we walked to Le Peep, only to find that it was very crowded and had a long wait list. So we kept walking and ended up at a diner near the university. It was noisy and not at all fancy, but the food was great and we had a good time. Probably much better for the kids, anyway, because we didn't have to worry about how noisy they were.

After brunch my son and I took the kids to the park, where we met my nephew and his kids; then later, while the kids were napping, my son and I played a board game. (We are both big game buffs). A good day.

My other son called me and made plans to meet later in the week because he is working today. So I have another nice event to look forward to.

I spent no money today, but did use gas. It's a 40-minute drive to my son's house. However, I still have half a tank and won't have to fill up before the 11th.
