It has been so nice to just hang out with our son. We took our time to get moving yesterday but we did visit mom around 11:00. We all went to lunch and talked and talked and talked. After driving back to her house, we sat and talked some more. It was good to see the two of them together, I tried to stay quiet and smiled as they chatted away.
It was also lovely to have a chauffeur. The stress of driving over the pass, sitting in the first day of school traffic and trying to get home were nonexistent. We hung out at home after mom's visit, heated up the barbacoa for dinner then William took off to the city to spend the evening with friends. Michael and I went to bed. We are old. HA!
Today, Williams wants to go for a drive down the coast. We'll stop somewhere for lunch, swing by the grocery store on the way home then meet Michael after work for a nice dinner that William is going to cook. Prawns and a side of Mexican corn. As it is Friday night, my bet is that he and William will sip some bourbon in the garden after dinner. And pudding. Homemade chocolate pudding. I made a huge bowl of it yesterday. It is a taste from William's childhood.
I am also appreciating not being in my normal schedule of activities. It feels a bit naughty playing hooky from life.
