We tried to keep this weekend as low key as possible and were pretty successful, I might add. However, the central air in my Mom’s house went on Friday (it was 90 degrees + each day with tons of humidity) and I was ready to jump off a cliff. Everyone that we knew with a pool was either away or hadn’t opened their pool yet. But we survived. Barely.
It’s funny how quickly you are thankful for the little things in life when you no longer have them.
We spent much of the weekend playing in the backyard, working on the yard, remembering the fallen soldiers, and we went and put flowers on my father’s grave. Not much, but just enough to make the most out of a long, relaxing weekend.
Monday morning, we went and watched our local Memorial Day parade and cheered on our Veterans.
A special thank you goes out to my Dad (Air Force), my father-in-law (Marines) and brother-in-law (Marines) for their service. Without your selflessness, we would not have what we have- including (fixed) central air. Thank you!
