Had a great time with Mom this past weekend. We ate a lot and shopped a lot and watched a lot of movies. We discovered Redbox movie rental when the dollar theater failed us (no longer showing the movies I wanted to share with her). Friday we had Red Lobster and Roosters, went grocery shopping, got my car’s oil changed and serpentine belt replaced, and watched Les Miserables and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Saturday we went to the spa and had massages and mani/pedis, and ate catered Panera for lunch. We went shopping for jeans and shoes, went to Olive Garden for dinner and then watched Skyfall in the evening. Sunday we went to church in the morning and then headed to Easton to see Oz the Great and Powerful. While watching the previews, Mom discovered that there was a Star Trek reboot, so that evening we watched the new Star Trek movie, while polishing off the leftovers from the weekend. We also watched Bourne Legacy while she made me lots of Chex Mix in the afternoon.

Monday morning we went off to my new eye doctor, Dr. Suh, and ordered new glasses, with a slightly stronger left lens. They gave me a grid to put on my fridge to check for macular degeneration (I don’t think the assistant believes I’ll come back next year, as it had been 8 since my Last appointment with an eye doc).  Then we had breakfast at First Watch (mmm delicous waffles). After breakfast, we did a little bit of shopping, during which we discovered that at Whole Foods, you can buy cinnamon sticks in bulk for $6.99/lb instead of in a jar for $4-$5/oz. Back home to have some leftover Cheddar Bay biscuits for lunch and Mom headed off to see my brother. All in all, and excellent weekend with Mom.
