Couple Days Behind Because of a Fun Filled Weekend
This weekend I spent in my hometown of New Castle, PA and Pittsburgh. I brought my girlfriend home with me as well to share in the experience.
The reason we came home was to surprise both my mom and my best friend for their birthdays. My mom’s birthday is Septembet 1st so we came home this weekend to surprise her and spend a couple days with her celebrating. My best friend’s birthday is September 4th and he is turning 30 this year so his wife planned and set up a huge surprise party for him that we all came in for to celebrate. So, those are the reasons I came home and have been super busy the past couple of days.
On Friday we started out by waking up and having breakfast at my house because my mom had to work the morning shift at the hospital. When she got home we spent some time together watching TV and talking. This is the first time my girlfriend met her so there was a good amount of time spent getting to know each other. After a little while we went out to eat at a local restaurant called the Crane Room. It’s a cool spot and is part brewery as well. We had dinner with my mom and her boyfriend. We had a great time together.
After dinner I drove her around town to point some things out. It’s a small town and takes just a few minutes to cover the majority of the township. Then we headed across town to visit my grandma. Every time I am in town I make sure to visit her and spend some quality time with her. She really enjoys our visits and just seeing her reaction and how she lights up is priceless. We stayed for almost an hour as we got caught up on a lot of the things I have missed the past few months since I have been home.
After leaving my grandma’s house we stopped at our grocery store to get some graham crackers for some chocolate chip dip my aunt had made us. Then we went home and we sat around and relaxed with my mom and boyfriend for the rest of the night before going to bed.
With all the craziness that is about to happen and with how busy I have been I am learning to cherish these days back home with my loved ones. It really helps me to reset and get focused and remember why I am doing the things I am and working so hard.
Enjoying this time now that I can work harder and be more productive later.
