That's it. She breathed her last breath. Estimated time of death is 1:42. I don't know what I'm going to do. There is so much that is unresolved. She took All my pictures with her, plus a ton of lame business stuff. I am hoping a geek can bring her back long enough to salvage those things. She was good to me. She intoduced us all, except my family, inlaws and blood,(although she has helped to strengthen those relationships). How soon is too soon to replace her? I don't think I'll do good on my own. I totally know how my dad felt.
I am trying to get caught up on all the blogs. I am really far behind. I have been reading most of them on my phone, but commenting is a pain. I commit to you, that I will get around to it. I am just starting at the top, and working my way down so if you are just dying to know what I have to say about your stuff, you're going to have to update.
My computer is only slightly better. This post has taken a good part of the afternoon. I think it might still be contagious so read at your own risk. It is painfully slow, and all the virus scans haven't fixed the crashing. I think we might have to put her down.
I took some pictures of my garden, so I could brag about it. It is my obsession. I recommend planting green beans. They are instant gratification plants. They are the big ones, and I planted them just over a week ago.
This is the kids camping out on our porch. That counts, doesn't it?
Well, it's mother's day, and I am a mom. I was actually really surprised that my little kids took some initiative and are really trying to make this a great day for me. Tom isn't here to coax them in the right direction, but they have all gone out of their way to do something nice for me. They made me presents at school. This is the video of it being presented to me. I love these guys, and find that being a mother is the most rewarding thing that I do. They never cease to amaze me.
On a much depressing side note, I can't help but think of my own mom on mother's day. She was such a great woman, so selfless, and so giving. I love her, and I miss her terribly. I was supposed to teach the lesson in church today, but I skipped out because I don't think I can sit through all the talks about how great moms are without bawling my eyes out. I would rather do my crying in the privacy of my own home. So I am sending my message to my mom who is somewhere out there.
Mom, I miss you so much. I still have a hard time convincing myself that you are really gone, and although I know that I can't see you in the flesh, I have felt you many time. You have been there for me when I really needed some comfort that no one else could give. You have inspired me, and continue to inspire me. I guess I have to watch myself even more now that you are watching me all the time. I hope I make you proud. I love you and I can't wait to see you again. On the plus side, I don't have to buy you presents anymore.
These are just some pictures of the kids that I am posting for Tom. It's hard right now you guys. We are trying so hard to tie up all the loose ends, try out new marketing ideas, and get Tom moved here. All in all, it is really stressful, and every once in a while I just feel like sitting back, with my headphones in, listening to music, blocking out the world. That is what I am doing today. Plus a little blogging. Shh, I am supposed to be working. I did get everyone bathed and fed, including myself, which is enough for me tired mind.
The metal Thomas is wearing is from the fun run. All the kids got one. They wear them all the time. We showed up a little late. Everyone was on the last lap. When the lady saw us she said to just join in. We ran a total of about 10 steps, suckers!
