Happy Mother's Day

I hope every mother had a wonderful day! Other than working on Mother's day, my day was pretty nice.

I woke up to a gigantic card that my my son bought for me, he very nicely added his sister to the card. My husband and my son made me breakfast before i had to go to work, that was really nice of them. And when i got home from work, dinner was waiting for me. What a nice day, don't ya think?

I stopped at my mother's after dinner and gave her the cards that i had gotten her. I had planned on getting some flowers to go with them but by the time i had went to the place their flowers were already picked out :(. Yeh i know, bad planning. Sorry Mom!


I haven't been posting so much lately because, I have not been feeling quite myself. When i am depressed or stressed i tend to keep to myself.
I guess it's another bad cycle for me again. Things just keep going wrong. My washing machine just broke down. Remember the wonderful job that my husband got, well....for some reason they did not need Frank to work ALL of last week! I say Great! Right after i take the plunge and put myself in debt with another new vehicle. If i had known that was going to happen i would have held off another month or two. Can ya help me pray that Frank starts working again without so much time off? It's appreciated.

Frank's Birthday is Monday. My mom helped me make signs to put all out on the front lawn, but who knew that we were going to get all this rain. Hopefully, Frank will work on Monday and it stops raining long enough for him to come home with the yard all decorated. I originally planned to do it in the middle of the night and he would wake up to it. But they will get ruined right now.

I'm going to make him a birthday cake in the morning.

He will be the big 4-0 ...yep 40,,,he said to me today that he was going on 28...if i had my say,,,i would say 2
Doesn't 40 sound ancient? But since i will be 40 in another 4 years , i guess it's not as bad as it sounds.


Darin goes on a field trip on Monday to a place called C.J. Barrymore's because he has been on the honor roll all year and has no points against him. The points are what you get if your bad in school. He is such a good boy and really try's hard in school. They are having an awards night at the school and we have been invited to honor Darin because he is getting more than one award in school. He was allowed to invite up to 5 people. He asked his grandmother to come, and she was happy to be asked to come. I'm sure Grandpa would come if he wasn't so tired after work.

Their are many field trips planned for this month. Darin is going to the Detroit Zoo at the end of the month and Amber is going to some kind of camp for the day in just a few days.

I am so proud of my kids, they work hard!

well all, I'm getting tired...
Happy Mother's Day to you all

Sounds like you had a great Mother's Day. Hope you get to feeling better and happier soon. I totally know where your coming from. Your kids sound wonderful. It seems like you guys have done an excellent job raising them. I just hope Jonathan and I have the same luck with our kids. I'll keep you in my thoughts & prayers. I hope you start writing regularly again. I always love reading your posts. You and I sound a lot alike. Take care.

Happy Monday!

Not cooking on Mother's Day sounds like my idea of a nice time. We went out for sandwiches, and the place seemed busy but not crowded.

I remember working as a waitress for a 10 hours shift on a Mother's Day.
The third worst day of the year to be on the job, with the day after Thanksgiving and the day after Christmas being numbers one and two, at least in retail or foodservice.
I hope your feet don't ache too much.

Indeed, it is the time of year for field trips. Our Children's Museum has a 1/4 page ad in the paper asking for Volunteers. And I was talking with a couple kids at Sunday School who are all excited about going to Washington, DC later this week.

happy mothers day (im late)

i emphathise and sympathise all at once. i too, turn inward when things are looking ugly. when i fight my demons, i try to keep it to myself. its probably not the best way, but its my way.

as for the rain, we live in Oregon. it always rains here. down at the "dollar store" here we found plastic birthday signs for Indy's birthday! we got those mylar banners, too. we work around the rain.

i hope he has a happy birthday, i love your new truck, adn even when money gets tight, remember to enjoy the things you have instead of worry about them. it all works out eventually.

anyways, glad to see you writing.
