HHHAAAAPPPPYYYYY MOMMMMYYY'SSS DAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!

Where to start, where to start

About your question.
Nothing. There's nothing you can do... Sorry... Smile, be there, make good strong coffee. Hugs help too. :) Lots of love.

I did call my mama. I'm a nice kid. And yes, I have boy talk. Although I'm slowly turning into something else. I guess it's what they call learning.

Who's DQ guy? Lucky fella. You're daughter's very beautiful. Seems she got her cool looks from you. Must be the glasses. :) Oh, and don't send her my way. I'd only be able to appreciate her beauty.

Long msn talk, btw. In the next room. :) I do that with co-workers. Cyber talk. But I'm beginning to think it's too slow for real life. It's good for things like : Hello, how are you? Here's a smile, thinking of you, etc.

Well, I'm off. Hope you've had a great mother's day.

Big hugs.

Thanks, Mat. I did and it ain't over yet. I'm going to post pictures of my prezzies later! Surprisingly, a day I was kinda dreading has not been too bad. It's the fun stuff that keeps me going.

LOL ~ I'll fill you in on DQ Boy in a future post. Don't want to jinx it and I haven't even met him yet! Just happy that she's moved on from the last one. :))

LMAO - I like boy talk. Why do you think I'm living vicariously through my daughter ~ little irish church lady ~ or would that be gurl?

You wouldn't believe how much we chat on line in this house. It's f'ing nuts! But fun! hee!

Gotta run ~ pool boy's got me Mama's Day supper ready. I'm spoiled. YA!

And. I'm such an ass... sorry for your ma.
