Our weekend was filled with a graduation, moving the graduate out of her house, graduation/Mother's Day lunch at Salt grass, and a Sunday cat nap.
Chris and I made the two hour trek to Oklahoma early Saturday morning to watch his sister graduate from nursing school. Thank goodness they split the individual (nursing, business, etc.) schools up so it wasn't a brutally long ceremony
like mine was.
As I was watching her I kind of had regrets about not getting "hooded" as master's students get to do, but then I realized how much nicer it was to not have to sit through another long ceremony. I'll just dress up in my cap and gown later this week, snaps some pics, and no one will ever know I didn't actually walk.
Plus, for my undergraduate graduation, there was tons of drama because my Dad and brother had to leave the moment my graduation was over to drive four hours to catch my brother's playoff baseball game. One flat tire in the middle of nowhere later, and they drove up for the last pitch as my brother's team lost their last game of the season. It was not a good phone call. When your starting shortstop is 200 miles away watching his sister graduate...and that sister PROMISES there will be enough time to make it back...ya lesson learned. No more graduations jinxing playoff games for me! Whew. If you're not a live-or-die sports family like mine, then you probably think I'm crazy when I say I felt SO bad.
And what happened this year? My brother's senior year? I was at Lauren's graduation and my brother's team lost out in the playoffs. I have just concluded that if I attend a graduation on a day my brother plays baseball, they will lose. But not anymore since he is officially done. And hearing your 18 year old brother say they could have beat that team 9 out of 10 times as he is fighting back tears for the game he loves just about rips your heart out. BUT we've all been there and life goes on. I just hate hearing my loved ones cry. Blah, it breaks my heart!

I can't believe it is already mid-May. Where does time go?
This coming weekend is our first free weekend in about six weeks. So I am not going to say anything else about it, for the sake of jinxing it, but I can't wait to be a bum all weekend long!
How as you weekend? Did you attend a graduation? How was Mother's Day?
