What a lovely weekend

Loved the weather last weekend!! I had to work Friday til 8:30 and part of the day Saturday, but I still got to enjoy it some.  Got to go to the dump again... still got a few more trips, but it's getting there.  Got more yard work done (ok, my yard man did most of the yardwork... but I did help some!).  Last night I went with a couple friends to see a Van Halen tribute band.  They were totally awesome! 

Yesterday Kal texted that she was feeling horrible and that my mom thought she should go to the ER.  I told her not the ER but Urgent Care.  She said she couldn't drive.  I told her that I was on my way to the dump but I would be happy to take her when I got back if her dad or gma hadn't or wouldn't take her before.  She said she didn't want to be a burden.  I told her she wasn't a burden, she was my daughter.  She said "ok, what time?"  I felt a little joy.  Not that she was sick, but that she wanted her mommy.  Both Jake and my mom were home and easily would have taken her right then, but she was willing to wait an hour so her mom could take her. 

She looked like death warmed over and is being treated for a sinus infection and given an inhaler.  Since she already has stomach issues, the mucus is what's causing her to puke. When I dropped her off I told her I love her, like I always do and for the first time since she moved out, she told me she loved me too.  That made my heart smile big.

Today is Kars "guy of interest" birthday.  He is coming to dinner and so is Kal.  When I told her about it yesterday, she said she wanted to come.  THAT made me happy.  In texting with her a little earlier, she said "I hate to ask but is Craig going to be there?" AAAHHH, I was so excited about her coming, I didn't even think about that.  No, I don't think he planned to come over and it's easy enough to make sure he doesn't - I just HATE that she won't even try to be around him and that I HAVE to think about it and plan around it.  It makes my heart hurt.  I want the 4 of us to do stuff together.  I am so excited to have her over for dinner though!! <3
