Today is my mom’s birthday. My mom hates the internet & social media, so I’ll keep this brief.
Energetic. (She’s a first grade teacher- I’m tired just thinking about keeping up with +20 kids.)
International. (She’s lived in & traveled to so many places!)
Understanding. (She doesn’t take angry words & actions personally.)
Suspicious. (Planning her surprise birthday treat was almost impossible.)
On Saturday K and I met up with Fred & Christina and my mom & dad to played Key Quest at a local laser tag warehouse. We had 45 minutes to solve the puzzle and escape the “serial killer’s cellar.” Yeah, we totally died. Between the six of us we had 4 college degrees, an engineer, a teacher, three business owners, a writer, and puzzle game aficionado (my mom). I still can’t believe we lost. I was SO mad. I hate losing.
Afterward we had a delicious dinner at Bonefish Grill and then ice cream cake back at my parents’ house. Fred & Christina put off their trip home to Columbus until Sunday morning & Kyle postponed his business travels that night, too. We’d presented my mom with her birthday gift on Easter (a piano!) but I think she was happiest about us being together for an evening.
We wouldn’t be who, or what, we are today without my mom. Happy Birthday, Mom ❤︎
