Since I’m not in school this semester, I thought spring break wouldn’t matter that much to me. But that turned out to be untrue! I was lucky enough that my mom and sister had their spring breaks the same week (mom teaches kindergarten in LA, sister is a special ed classroom assistant in Chicago), so they both came out to Colorado and I got to spend time with both of them together!
My mom came out first and she brought me a really pretty dress that she found in Macy’s that she thought I could wear to one of the many weddings I’ll be attending this year. I love the dress and it was really sweet of her because I haven’t had much luck with shopping lately. I’ve never really had the patience for shopping, and now the fatigue makes it nearly impossible. So my mama saved me a lot of trouble! (Thank you again, mama! I'm looking forward to wearing it!)
APL and I also got to take my mom to dinner at Restaurant 4580, which has a really great gluten-free menu and I always really enjoy. (Check out the review on Friday in our gluten-free blog!) It was the first time I had a hamburger with a bun since I went gluten-free!
Then my mom and I drove down to southern Colorado to visit my godmother (my mom’s best friend). She and her husband are building a house near Westcliff, which I estimate has a population of about 8 people and 12 prairie dogs! So we’re talking pretty middle-of-nowhere. But the valley and the view of the mountains is so very beautiful that I can see why you would want to live there. We had a really nice time visiting with my godmother and antique shopping in a few of the relatively nearby small towns. It was really nice.
After we came back to Boulder we got to spend some time with my sister. We didn’t do anything particularly exciting – we made dinner, went out to breakfast, drove through the mountains, poked around in some shops – but it was really great just to spend some time with my family. Although I have to admit that it still wears me out a little bit to have company, I’m really glad I got a chance to see them both! (Thank you guys for visiting me!)
