No studying today

Because it’s Mothers Day. Yay for me! Thank you, Woodrow Wilson. Actually, I’m just looking for an excuse to not study today. Found it.

As some of you may have read in the bio post I did last year, my mother, Barbara, was a wonderful lady. Sure, we had our problems (see yesterday’s post), but bottom line, for good or ill, she devoted herself completely to parenting Mavis and me. I mean, for almost twenty years, that was her sole occupation in the world. And I for one will never forget that sacrifice, even as I hope she got some joy out of it, too. I know we did.


To all the Finkville moms, I say “Happy Day!” To all my fiends who are fortunate enough to be sons and daughters of moms who can still be hugged, I say, “Go do it, right now.”

Mavis and I are being treated to a pizza party tonight with the whole gaggle. What are you doing for Mom’s Day?

    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to one of THEEEE most wonderful moms I know (and oh, lordy yes…grandmum, too! This getting old stuff is TOTALLY for the birds!). I’m glad that I had a chance to see you being a great mom in the early days when #1 son & Lars would run around the house butt-a*s nekked (hey – do you guys still do that??).

    MomBoomR is in Calif with DadBoomR, visiting their grand-daughter Kaylee, but are headed here in early June to help celebrate my b’day. The hug will just have to wait until there (but a phone call is almost as good-how did we ever live w/out cell phones??).

    We’re having Mother’s Day Brunch with MomBluvox at her digs just down the road (you should see this place-YOWZA! She’s as close as I’ll ever get to a mother-in-law, but I’m not complaining. She’s QUITE the character – I can clearly see the apple has not fallen far from the tree :-) Last week, I had the pleasure of helping her shop for a new car – good fun!

    The pizza party sounds like da bomb! Wish I could be there! Take pics & post – I wanna see! Make sure #1 son & Lars give you ample amounts of hugs (including one from me, please)?

      Aw, thanks sweety. And I hear you about the getting old…yikes. But I am fighting it with every ounce of strength (and every chemical treatment) I can get my hands on!

    What a beautiful picture of your mom!!! As you know I am mom to Chevy and he very sweetly brought me a dead bird this morning. He was so proud! I said thank you and praised him, then threw the poor bird away.

    I agree with BoomR, I will want to see pics!!! Have a wonderful day, ^leesa, you deserve it. :)

      Chevy! I can’t believe I forgot about him! How old is he now? I think it’s fab that you still have him. I remember when you got him…when he made the trip overseas to your new home. HA – he was one glad cat. :-)
