Mark spent his entire weekend in class for his upcoming CFA exam, so I invited his Mom and my Mom down for some early Mother’s Day celebrating yesterday. We planned to hit up the local master gardener plant sale and then have brunch at the house. A simple, low-key way to spend the morning.
It ended up being not so relaxed. While I planted the garden, the Moms mowed and trimmed the lawn, moved some bushes and flowers, and trimmed up some other shrubs. It was a marathon yard work day.
I said several times that I felt bad they came down to do my yard work on Mother’s Day weekend. Every time, they insisted they didn’t mind at all. I’m so lucky to have Moms like that. I hope they know how appreciated they are!
