Just a few weekend plans

Just a little howdy before the weekend starts. I am sure my time this weekend will be busy, since Michael and I both will be at the house and we have LOTS to accomplish in those two days. Note to self * Get my list ready. Our biggest goal is getting the main floor of our house back together. If your wondering what all is going on then jump over to my home blog and take a look see!

Well here it is Mother's Day weekend. Do any of you have any special plans? As of now, I don't have any big plans. Sad I know....not really. All three of my kids are very busy right now and it is hard to get us all together for any amount of time. So if we can't get together then I am sure we will at a later time.

When God Created Mothers
by Erma Bombeck

When the good Lord was creating mothers He was into His sixth day of
"overtime" when the angel appeared and said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling
around this one."
And the Lord said, "Have you read the specs on this order? She has to be
completely washable, but not plastic; Have 180 moveable parts... all
replaceable; Run on black coffee and leftovers; Have a lap that disappears
when she stands up; A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a
disappointed love affair; And six pairs of hands."
The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands... no way."
"It's not the hands that are causing me problems," said the Lord. "It's the
three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have."
"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.
The Lord nodded. "One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks,
"What are you kids doing in there?" when she already knows. Another here in
the back of her head that sees what she shouldn't but what she has to know,
and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs
up and say, "I understand and I Love You" without so much as uttering a
"Lord", said the angel, toughing His sleeve gently, "Come to bed.
"I can't," said the Lord, "I'm so close to creating something so close to
myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick... can feed a
family of six on one pound of hamburger... and can get a nine-year-old to
stand under a shower."
The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. "It's too soft," she
"But tough!" said the Lord excitedly. "You cannot imagine what this mother
can do or endure."
"Can it think?"
"Not only think, but it can reason and compromise," said the Creator.
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek. "There's a
leak," she pronounced. "I told You. You were trying to put too much into
this model."
"It's not a leak," said the Lord, "it's a tear."
"What's it for?"
"It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness and pride."
"You are a genius," said the angel.
The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put it there."

Happy Mother's Day

Lucky me... first to post again!

Happy Mother's Day to you Sweetie! I had a mini celebration of my StepMom tonight after my niece's play & Doug's Mom is coming to stay overnight tomorrow night. That's about it for festivities here.

I'm off to your home blog to catch up on all your busyness over there. I'm SO glad to see you having time to post again. I missed you very much!

Big hugs xo
