Mother's Day 2010

Wow.  What a day.  It is almost over.  Another Mother's Day.  I wish that I had a picture of the beautiful day that we had, but I don't.  I have been so busy with school that I have let everything go. The house is a wreck, my pile of laundry is the size of Ocracoke Island, lighthouse included!  Could not tell you the last time I get the idea.  All I wanted all week was to plant some flowers in the front yard.  It needed some color.  Normally I would of been out there by now, but school has kept me from a lot of stuff.  Okay, so have my kiddos.  3 ball teams, 1 tumbling class, 1 ballet class, Destination Imagination and something else?  Oh yeah, homework!  I guess that there will always be something that keeps me away from housework!
Back to today.  I got up, girls had made cereal and that made me happy.  The husband had to work in the am (2nd job).  So we started cleaning house!  Oh yeah!  It was a mothers dream to clean house on Mother's Day.  But I tell you what!  I was so happy after it was done that I even smiled a little! Geoff came home from work just in time with a load of annuals.  An answer to my prayer!  I got my comfy clothes on and went out with my coffee and planned it out with him.    It was relaxing and exactly what I needed.  I needed to get my hands in dirt!  I never thought that I would ever say something like that.  I guess that I am getting old.  But I felt more accomplished today then I will on Wednesday after I finish a 15 credit hour semester.  I have 3 finals this week!    eeeeekk!
My girls were somewhat nice to me.  They really just went about their own way after the house was clean and I 'released' them for the day.  We did go to Grandma's and let the girls fish for a little bit and then we had hot wings and salad for dinner!  Then we played Uno.  It was a great day and I am so Blessed to have such a great family to share it with!  I thank God everyday for pairing me up with a man that knows me inside and out and has not run away yet!!
