I haven’t written in 5 days! How terrible of me, I know. 🙂 Honestly, I have just been busy with this new class, with the kids, and it has all slipped my mind. I always say that I will make time but at the end of the night, I might talk to my husband and do some homework, and I usually end of falling asleep before I can remember to write on this blog. I must make more time – still offering a handsome reward to the inventor of a time machine so I could go back and fit everything in one day.
Today is Mother’s Day – so Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms, grandmas, and soon to be moms. All I wanted was to spend the day doing nothing, and for the most part, I got my wish. Holidays away from family are hard. I always wish I could take my mom out to eat or be there to actually give the present to my mother-in-law (my presents did not get there on time, regardless of the fact that I sent them 2 weeks ago!). But I was able to talk to them at least. I loved Mother’s Day growing up – we always spent the day with my Grandma. I hate that my kids don’t always get to experience that, but I know that they treasure the years and holidays that we do get with family.
My girls are finally at the age where they make things in school for holidays, and I received some good presents for Mother’s Day. Lorelei gave me a handprint with a poem, and Anya made me a card and some coupons for things like a hug, a free breakfast, or for cleaning. I have already redeemed the free back rub, although I wish she had put 3 of those in there.
So now I am off to do some homework, eat some chocolate frozen yogurt, and to talk to my husband. Hope all you mommies out there are enjoying your special day!
