I spent the day getting some rest and just taking it easy, the less movement involved with the left side of my chest (after the accident, see the blog journal entry on this), the better.
I managed to get in some reading, finished another book, and also did some reading of scenarios for potential use in Atlantis: The Second Age. Watched about three hours of PVR stuff yesterday (including the Bomb Girls two-hour movie wrap-up; lovely stuff), so it was a good day overall.
Mom called my place around 2:00 pm, and told me that she'd decided she wanted to go and eat Chinese food. So I called Brother Wu's and made a reservation there for 7:00 pm.
Since my car is still in the garage being serviced, Mom came by and picked me up, and then we went and had a good meal at the restaurant. We has some soup (Mustard Green for me, Chicken Corn for her), a spring roll for her, Sizzling Beef, Mu She Chicken, and Bok Choy with other vegetables, all washed down with jasmine tea and water. Lovely meal, simple flavours and tastes, very nice. Service was a bit slow at the restaurant, though it wasn't all that busy, but there were a lot of take-out orders being processed, I noticed.
Mom came back to the house with me, and we had some (more) tea and biscuits. By the time she left me, it was close to 10 pm, and I was exhausted, both from the physical injury to my upper chest, and the fact that the walking had irritated my left ankle. Since I had to get up for work this morning, I decided to take a couple of Tylenol before bed, and then crashed for the evening.
So a good Mother's Day, except for the accident.
