Thursday 13--Mother's Day Edition



In HONOR of Mother's Day I'm going to do Thirteen things about me mummy

1. My mother was Born on May 11th...OH. MY. GOD. THATS. TODAY. gotta go call her..so yes she often gets stiffed with the mother's day/birthday presents in one.

2. Me Mummy was an AF BRAT...just like me..except I'm not a Brat..well, Ok maybe I am...anyhow..AF BRAT remember that.

3. Her Dad was once stationed in Turkey and her teacher was my high school Vice Principal (We were in England)...small world huh???

4. She was the first person IN. HER. FAMILY. to attempt a degree and did well with a 4.0 associates alas, she couldn't finish as we were moved to England so she never did get a Bachelor's, but oh boy she lord's that 4.0 over me..Love you Mom!!!

5. She took us to Myrtle Beach Pavillion one time on a whim...we had a great day.

6. She had a stroke in Jan. 2000, bled into the brainstem, there was only a 10% chance of survival..she survived.

7. Although sometimes...ok alot of times...Bitchy, she is doing WONDERFULLY..she is partially paralyzed and has lost the use of one eye, but hey she's alive and that's all that matters.

8. I'm HER FAVORITE...SERIOUSLY so take that sista's!!!!!!

9. SHE. STOLE. MY. DOGS...no really she did..we left them with her when we came over here and they like her better than us.

10. the woman can eat steak like a mad person...I've never seen such a little person eat so much steak..I'm betting if we took her to Texas..she could take out the 72 ouncer.

11. Ditto Ice Cream...wow..impressive.

12. Even though Handicapped, she can knit...and make such pretty things...she is making me some blankets for my couch..ho hum..hint hint hint..., she reads alot, and she is feisty really..she could take me in a bar fight..;)

13. She never hang's up without saying I LOVE YOU...I LOVE YOU TOO MOMMY. HAPPY MOTHER's DAY/BIRTHDAY. The card is in the mail..no seriously it is...OK I'll JUST CALL.

You know, there's a saying that my grandmother says sometimes..."It's good enough for a Mother..." you know, the piece of cake that broke or the seat on the end or whatever...doesn't have to be the best because I'm the mother and it's good enough for me...That whole card thing made me think of that. Aren't moms great? God bless 'em...

I loved your list about your mom! It's wonderful that you tell her and show her how much you appreciate and love her!!! I never hang up the phone with any family or friend, without saying "I love you"...it takes some people aback, but, hey...it's how I am! lol...My TT's up, come visit please.

Wow,

Okay Baby, I finally managed to get on here and read your blog. Not sure how I feel about all of it, (you do raze me some after all) but I enjoyed reading it. I had forgotten about the conversation with Lizzie, so I laughed pretty hard after re-reading it and remembering it. I was sorry to hear about he pics in the camera being lost, but overall, I enjoyed your blog. Take care and I'll talk to you later today.

XOXOXO
