lp, dc, bliss, and taxy, my heart goes out to you guys.

taxy, my mom spoke today of how her mom always hated mother's day since she lost her first child actually on that day. she never got over it. i'm glad to see you've come to find blessings in such a bad thing.

today wasn't such a good day in our house either as dw still misses her (deceased) mom something awful.

her mom felt the same near then end as your dad lp. we just had our son, and she had been very sick for many years. dw did a saint's job of taking care of her mom's every need literally for 2 decades, but once we had the baby, she felt she was too much of a burden and started to not take her array of meds, effectively ending her life.

all i can say is i would do anything to bring her back for just one moment to allow dw to be with her once more, and for me to tell her i loved her and to say goodbye. two things i mever got to do since i was watching the baby while dw was with her mom the last few days when she passed. i won't bother to tell of the anger i feel for my bil and sil, either of whom could have helped me out and watched the baby so i could go to the hospital for even just a minute to say goodbye. i hope i never see them again.

all lives come to an end, but while you have each other cherish every second no matter how difficult it is. the alternative is heartache and regret.

ok, well, except for cherishing shitty in laws.

Thanks, DcSaute and Taxlady, re my Dad's situation.

Taxlady, I totally understand regarding Mother's Day. I lost my Mom to Cancer 16 years ago and when she was alive we had a bit of a falling out. Her attitude about Mother's Day was quite the opposite. "If you can't love me and show it to me the other 364 days in the year, I don't want you making a big deal out of it on the one. It is just a way for card companies to make money".

Also, I never became a biological mother either (my condolences on your still birth). Then I took in a teenager when her parents "didn't want her around anymore" and she stayed with us on and off into her mid twenties. But she had a few issues and when she married and we took them both in, we ended up having to initiate tough-love and kick them out. She is expecting her second child soon, and while I have seen her with her first once, there is no chance for reconciliation. I do have hundreds of others who have called me "Mom" at times in their lives and I love them all dearly, but it isn't the same. So I do understand completely.

This year, with my Dad so sick, Mother's Day was even harder, but I got through it. A few of my Kids called or left emails or FaceBook notes wishing me a Happy Mother's Day which did help a lot.

I so totally agree with the words others have given you. You are a great person and we are who we are because of what has happened in our lives. It molds us and makes us stronger. Thank you so much for sharing.

this has been a grrrrrrr day. had everything out to make low calorie oatmeal cookies. opened the oatmeal. it was alive with pantry moths. opened second one, same thing. so scratched that idea.

my daughter left some curtains for me to shorten. searched a half an hour for the safety pin that she said was to mark what needed to be cut off. tiny little pin. by then sick of the curtains.

my order from target didn't come.

the mail sucked except for the calorie counting book i had ordered.

with all the delays, didn't get a single thing done, time to go to bed i think. sure hope tomorrow is a better day.

Sounds like you got all the bad stuff out of the way today. Tomorrow should be smooth sailing.

According to the website this morning, today, May 11, is "Eat What You Want Day." Unfortunately, my morning will be spent at the dentist's office, getting prep work for another crown, replacing an ancient old molar filling. At my age (my favorite saying these days) I expect pieces to keep dropping off in the road as I travel along, but it's a nuisance (not to mention expensive) to fix and replace things.

It's true, they don't run specials on Titanium Parts...and then there's the recovery time. Now THAT's a "Lost Weekend."

Hey - didn't one of the news reports say that an attack dog present at the bin Laden deal had Titanium teeth? Wonder if I could get the name of his dentist.

I'll bet the Six Million Dollar Man's parts would cost him into the trillions these days.
