Writer's Block and a Day for Mothers.

I've been a terrible blogger lately.  A non-blogger is more like it.  Not exactly sure what the reasoning is for my lack of posts.  I've missed all of you, and this little corner of joy for me, so it's not that.  I guess I really don't have a good reason...but the thing is...the longer I go without writing a post...the rustier I get.  The harder it gets to open the computer and type.  You know it's bad when I had Craigslist open before I started typing tonight...not ideal.  Instead of writing, I've been watching TV, eating things I shouldn't, watching my husband assemble our new patio set that came in 1,000 pieces...and laughing...because each chair built gets at least one F*word before completion.  (Maybe I should have helped instead of laughed??!!?)  Normal things, I guess.  Nothing too out of the ordinary.  I guess this is officially what they call writers block?  I don't really like it.  Here's my attempt to brush it away...

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mommas that read my blog from near and far.  Hugs to each and every one of you.  I hope your day was as wonderful as my own.  I was treated like a queen, complete with gifts for summertime in Michigan (including new popsicle sailboat molds that "you can make us popsicles in Mom!!"), a lazy morning, a wonderful family brunch, and even a relaxing evening being "mothered" by a four-year-old who was happy that her "baby" was taking a nap.  Perfect.

This weekend I was able to spend time with so many of my favorite mothers.  Friday night was perfect, hanging with one of my favorite friends, who mothers three boys with fun as the focus.  I love that our kids are growing up together and even had their own table at dinner.  The kids loved it...and so did the parents.  Not sure about the wait staff...

Myles and his Aunt Brooke.
Last night my parents came over for a low key dinner.  My mom "grandparents" (a verb) my children every Monday while I am at work, but I love to spend time with them all together.  Witnessing the awesome relationship that my kids have with my parents just warms my heart.

Today we had a wonderful brunch with more food than you could ever imagine at my mother-in-law's house.  At this point in our relationship, it's time to drop that "in-law" status.  She has been in my life for sixteen years and has superseded that "in-law" tag long ago.  Anyway, we had a wonderful time with aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and even great-grandparents.  Awesome.  How could you possibly celebrate Mother's Day without a fun round of Disney Hedbanz? The kids were in Heaven.  I loved it too - I could watch and enjoy...without even having to wear a pair of silly ears.

You can't peek when you get your card.
We take this very seriously.
Of course, there were several wonderful women that I was missing today.  Some too far to visit, like my baby sister celebrating her very first Mother's Day.  Others, gone from this Earth and on to a better place.  A special hug to all of you mothers missing your own mother today.  I hope that wonderful memories filled your day with a smile.

Hope to see you back on Tuesday at the latest...I better write a list...before you all give up on me!  


  1. We did enjoy a special day and I am so proud to be one of your mothers! Thank you for being such a wonderful daughter and friend!

  2. Glad to see you enjoyed your Mother's Day as much as I did! We love Hedbanz around here, too. I didn't realize there was a Disney version though. We will certainly have to check into that! Have a great Monday and I will look forward to your Tuesday lists (as usual)!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Heather! So glad your Mother's Day was great!!


Go ahead! Don't be shy...leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
