A Weekend Roundup only a mother could love

And why is it a Weekend Roundup only a mother could love? Because it is just like a child: short and useless.

HA! I kid. Except it is going to be short. It’s Mother’s Day, you see, and I gotta spend it with my wife. That’s right, I have to somehow make up for 364 days of neglect and indifference and cram a year’s worth and affection and respect into one marathon 24-hour period.  Oh, and I also have to convince the kids to do the same.

Good luck with that!

Okay, I did some good stuff for the wife. I took her to breakfast yesterday at Kate’s Kitchen. I made her her favorite meal, homemade slow-cooked pot roast. I gave her some gift cards to her favorite stores. And best of all… I took her to go see the new Star Trek movie.

And oh, sister, how awesome it was. I loved it. It was everything I hoped for and more. Action-packed, funny, respectful of continuity but not afraid to do something new. See it. You won’t be disappointed. And if you are, I hate you and everything you stand for.

    You guys just keep all these fun breakfast places to yourself? We saw Star Trek this weekend too and enjoyed it, maybe not as much as you though. Some of the continuity was missed on Jon apparently. Happy Mother’s Day to Shannon!
