It is not a good thing to not have children near on Mother's Day. I have pretty much had a big ol' pity party all day about it.
Yesterday I went to Fredericksburg - what a charming little town! The Confederate Army cemetary is there along with Martha Washington University which gives it a very different, but cool, vibe. That history-college town thing is definately a interesting mix. I went to check out the bead store, Beadle Jewelz. The bead store, alas, was a disappointment but the stroll up and down the main street more than made up for it. Steve had to work, which was a bummer, since we always have a good time on those types of adventures.
When I got home, Steve and I went to DSW where Steve bought these
And I bought these
They are uber comfy and just right for those times that I don't think I can get away with the Ed Hardy pair. Steve reports that his are comfy as well.
Today was spent wallowing in a pit of self pity as big as the sea. OK - a little dramatic perhaps. We went and bought Steve new pants (32's!!!) and me books. While there was wallowing, it was not long and drawn out. Perhaps more of a puddle than a sea. And I think I am over it - until next time.
