There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

What I want for Mothers Day

I don't want much. Because I don't really like Mothers day. It reminds me that there will be no celebration on Father's Day. And also that some day soon, I will have to try and explain why there is no daddy. So today while I was working out I figured out a few things to ask for on this Mother's Day.

1. I want this stupid F*cking war to be over. What is the purpose of our young men dying? We are not gaining freedom, nor are we gaining lower oil prices. Instead of spending money on this war, why don't we develop affordable energy alternatives to oil?

2. I want one gallon of Bliss Lemon Sage Soapy Sap. mmmmmmm lemon and sage... or just about anything lemon & sage from bliss.

3. MAID! can you hear me universe? I need a maid. Even if its someone that watches austin so I can clean properly... I need some assistance.

4. Some room in my budget for a vacation. yea I need some time off. And a few days away from the pressures of everyday existance as a single parent.

5. Sleep. I have been getting more and more, but.. I would love uninterrupted, no regime, no wake up time sleep.

I am a very lucky woman. I feel so honored and blessed with good health, good friends, and a perfect place I call home. I love my little guy, and just spending time with him is going to be the best mother's day prezzie of all.

What do you other mothers desire? Besides a little peace?


  1. If you lived closer Id make a deal w/ ya-Ill watcher yer little fella while you clean....then you can repay the favor and watch over mine so I can give my house a good scrubbing!

    Why do our little ones make cleaning a one step forward 2 steps back situation?

    We both need a maid like ALice off the Brady bunch but w/out ALice's weirdness

  2. Shit, I hear you. The housework ad sleep issues go hand-in-hand for me. There are other things I want to do with my life than wash dishes and play with duplo blocks.
    And it would be nice if I didn't have to stay up until 2 AM in order to get some me time.

  3. Mom's work is endless, isn't it?
    the dishes, the meals , the laundry, the ironing, the cleaning...whew! wears me out just calling it all out..
    I hope you have a Sweet Mother's Day!.

    Bunches of hugs....

  4. Happy Mother's Day my sweet sistor!!!
    Austin is one lucky dude!!!


  5. nice. we took our mom out to dinner last night.

  6. Is it bad to say that on Mother's Day the best gift would be to be left alone? Or atleast as you say given a little peace ;o)

  7. goddess: I would love to trade off! Its so much easier to do a good cleaning without "helpful hands"

    loops: yea. other things. And that staying up late thing to accomplish everything sucks.

    steph: yea. I try not to think about it as it overwhelms me most days. And why do you buy clothes that need ironing? :giggles:

    Thanks SIS! I wish you lived closer. :HUGSZ:

    frank: now that sounds nice. I am going to have to take myself out to dinner this year.

    kat: not only is it a wonderful thing to say, its not even selfish! The people we care for seem to have no comprehension of the extent of our services. if you can get the time, take it!!!!!

    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YOU ALL! I hope it is a sun and smile filled day! Don't forget to take pictures!
