Happy Mother's Day 2015

     It was a bit strange taking ten days off from posting, when I had been posting six days a week for the entire month of April. I sort of needed it to relax and catch up on my sleep though. There has been a lot going on that I can't talk about just yet, but there's more good than bad. The good always outweighs the bad.

     Hopefully I will be back to posting regularly again. My goal is to post every Monday and Thursday. Mondays will be dedicated to the Tough Topics series and Thursdays will be for whatever my brain comes up with next.

     My boyfriend works over night tonight and tomorrow night, plus I have a short day shift on Wednesday. My plan is to use that all to my advantage and prewrite as many posts as I can so that they are scheduled to go up and that I won't miss a day. If I do miss a day, somebody needs to yell at me.



     But all of that aside, I wanted to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day.

     Whether you're a biological mom, you adopted, you're fostering, you're a step mother, you're a dad who has to fill both roles, or something else- I hope you had a wonderful day and got to spend it with you child(ren).

     And for those of you who have lost their mother, or lost a child (born or unborn), I want you to know that somebody cares and understands. I know words on a screen can't magically make you feel better, but you will get through this. You just have to stick around long enough to see the amazing things yet to come.

    1. I just needed some rest. The human body can only do so much on it's own before giving out if it's not properly taken care of.

  2. Anyone who makes it through A-Z in one piece deserves a break. We hope you come back well rested, and we're glad to hear the news is mostly good. And hopefully the bad news is something that you can at least laugh over.

    And if you need someone to yell at you, we're happy to help. We do great drill instructor impressions. So would you prefer "maggot" or "pissant"? Or both?

    1. It amazes me when people research and write really in-depth and intelligent posts every day for the A-Z. I can't manage that. I wish I could but I'm horrible at adulting so that takes up a lot of my time.

      Well, I haven't been called either before, but "pissant" makes me giggle!

    2. If it's any consolation, we're horrible at adulting too, and we're already into our 30s. I don't think adulting is a skill that can be learned. Either you inherit it at 18 or you don't. On the plus side, though, it sure makes life a lot more fun... pissant. :)

      (Best word ever)

    3. My dad is a redneck who cooks about once a year, on a grill. My mom wears skull tshirts and rainbow socks, while eating chips for breakfast. I don't think I'll ever be able to adult as well as some people because I damn sure didn't inherit the gene to do it.
