Mothers Day

Here is to hoping that each and every mother in bloggy land had a wonderful Mothers Day.
Thank goodness my Mothers Day and birthday did not fall on the same day this year. Either way I usually get a combined present, but sweetheart that Chris is, it is usually very nice.

Friday I was off work and took Sue to her cousin Joanie's house for the weekend. I enjoyed a day of shopping and not doing much else, although I did exercise after I picked Nicole up from school. I'm back on the weight loss train, but trying to do it by eating healthier and doing mild exercise that doesn't hurt my legs and arms.

Saturday included Korie going to her 7th week of obedience school. She gets her diploma next week and a photo to go on the graduate wall, lol. This week she got diagnosed with a yeast infection in her ear, so holding her down, and muzzling her to get medicine in her ear has just been a joy - NOT!!! lots of snarling, growling and snapping goes on at those times while Chris wrestles to hold her and I put the medicine in. Thank goodness it only has to be done once a day.

As honest as I can be right now I will tell you that my life is very difficult right now. I'm stressed, upset and just trying to get through each day in turn. I am thankful that we only have a few weeks of school left and that I will be very busy during this time. It will keep me from having too much time on my hands. Time to think. Time that I would rather be doing anything else but think.

Sometimes too much thinking can get you in trouble.

I will continue to post, and honestly try to do it more. It might help me sort some thoughts out, but if I have a post that just seems like fluff a time or too, please understand:)

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and will continue to have a great week ahead. I've started trying to participate in The Writers Workshop over at Mama Kats, it has been fun and challenging, so if you'd like to give it a shot click HERE , then click on the Writers Workshop tab.

( oh and if you are wondering what I got for my present - I received Season One of Army Wives, book three of the newest quartet by Nora Roberts, and three movies in a little box that looks like a beat up highschool locker that is titled Flashback 80s Pack and includes The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Weird Science)

So, how was your mothers day?
