Mother's Day

Today when I was stooped over cleaning the baseboards throughout the downstairs, I wondered, "How is everyone else celebrating their Mother's Day?"

I'm not sure how it happened. I seem to haphazardly find myself cleaning obscure things when left to my own devices. But there I was questioning the sanity of a mom who would spend her "special day" cleaning such an inconsequential part of the house.

Regardless of that twenty-minute foray into baseboard craziness, I had a nice day. Went to church; spent time on a fun photo project; re-hung my room decor now that the walls are (almost) all painted; enjoyed dinner at a nice restaurant (which Cayna deemed "not as good as Red Robin"); and indulged in a dessert our friends brought over for a mother's day gift.

I love Mother's Day. Even more than shiny-clean baseboards.

Happy Mother's Day to you. Unlike you I did not spend my day cleaning base boards. Although I can see that you my friend that likes to clean could be doing that. It does sound like you had a nice day. I like the pictures. The one of you and the kids is great and the dessert looks yummy!

what an adorable family picture!!!!
If I was wearing a hat, I'd tip it to you and say 'Happy Mothers Day to you'... then I'd stop and wonder why I am wearing a hat (when clearly my hair is too thick to fit in a hat)...and why I was speaking in an Irish accent when clearly I'm a Lebanese, Japanese American woman...
