Sunday, Happy Mother's Day

     Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there.  I know this is one happy mother.  I just went into one of the spare bedrooms and found my two youngest sleeping.  I said, "good morning, who wants to get up and make me breakfast?"  The grunt sounded something like, "if you want this Mother's Day to stay happy you will let us sleep".  We were all up late with the show.    It is over and it was a huge success.

     The studio is a wreck but the theater is clean.  I am wiped out but I will recover.  Just need  a few days to get my ducks in a row.  I can't wait to see how the #'s stack and I have to set up a May budget and pay all the bills.  I think I am going to be pleasantly surprised.

     Out My Window:  I have so much work to do in the flower beds and we have to plant the garden.  I need to do some work on the pond also, we did not have a any fish come back for the first time in ten years.  So I will spend a couple of hours every morning out side until it is caught up.  I also have $150.00 worth of flower certificates to spend.

      I have plenty of work to do in the shop and I want to start a vacation fund.  I need at least $1500.00 by the first of July and that will be a push.  How do I do that in 6 weeks!  I just need my life back to normal.  Yeah like I know what normal is.

     Jane is right about spending more when you are not blogging.  I have not purchased anything because I have not had the time.  But I also have not been careful about how I paid for groceries and food.  Just eating on the fly.  Or eating out.  Now not expensive, just nickles and dimes you and is not really good for you.  I look forward to a healthier diet.

Well Happy Mother's Day!



  1. Happy Mother's Day to you too!!

  2. Happy Mother's Day! Surprisingly son #2 called at 8am to wish me a happy mother's day--this was the kid that we absolutely could't wake up before noon in his teenage years. Guess the army will do that to you :) Congrats on your show and I hope you can take a day or two off to rest since you've been so busy lately!

  3. Those darn kids! Glad to hear about your successful show - what a relief to have that over and done with!!! Hopefully the #'s will give you a nice $1500 holiday surprise! Or is that asking too much?
    Happy Mother's Day Kim! No one made me breakfast either...oh that's a lie...we ate out for breakfast! (and dinner too!)
