Happy Mother's Day!

Dear Mom,
Just in case you happen to check my blog today I want to say Thank You. I appreciate you so much. Your helpful hands, your caring heart, your words of wisdom, your love for your grandkids all make up the gift God gave us in you. I would not be able to do it with out your help and input... at least not mentally stable. You are a solace for this adult deprived mommy. Thank you for being an involved and compitant mother and grandmother. I love you.

It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't. ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams (this is exactly what I'm thinking when those cute little old ladies in line at the grocery store say,"enjoy it they grow up fast." THERE IS A REASON FOR THAT!)

Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children. ~Sam Levenson (That and vericose veins, gray hair, and a sore back)

The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is parents. ~John J. Plomp (Usually within one hour of all the kids being awake... I'm ready for bed.)


Happy Mother's Day!

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psa 127:3

So after church my schedule is wide open. Which means I will probably have my duff planted in the recliner with my laptop open, trying desperately to catch up on my Project 365.

AND YES... that is exactly what I WANT to be doing.

Then later I have been promised a night off from cooking... which actually happens more often than it should but I'm not one to bring up the obvious. Anyway, my night off will probably involve Subway sandwiches eaten either at home or at a park where the kids can run free and DADDY can chase them whilst I doze under a tree.

What are your plans?

We have a big dinner at brother's house after church for mother and then we go visit with hubby's mother so it will be a very busy day!!

You mean there's some option of getting to NOT do exactly as I do every OTHER day?! What's that dear? Oh. He said No. No options. He has to go to work and won't be home until about 10pm. Same as usual. On the upside, he won't be here to know I didn't cook. And, seeing as it's Mother's Day, I get to spend the WHOLE FREAKING day with my children - and the ones who spent the night. I am so (gritting teeth and grinning)BLESSED! (Now face is stuck in fake attempt at showing gratefulness.)

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to you, too!

I'm washing my daughter's sheets due to an unfortunate incident involving her cat and an enormous hairball. But hey! It's what moms do, right? :)

We went to church (of course) then ate Arby's, then came home and worked on a jigsaw as a family while we watched Bolt (cute movie). I had to be at church to help with our Youth Choir dress rehearsal for their program tonight. Then, after they had a social (youth has a social after every event), so I didn't get home until after 8, and now I'm blogging! Good day!
