Mother's Day

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.

Can I just tell you, my dear, old (meaning we are good 'ol pals!) friend, that reading your blog about when you get new shoes just makes my days so much better! For example, I am currently in the Chicago aiport, HATING airports and anything that flies in the air in general, and have read your blog, and I have been lifted! :) Well....atleast for a bit! :) Happy Mom's Day, a day late!

Your Old Pal-
Big Al

YAY Big Al!! Good to hear from you! What on earth are you doing in Chicago airports (other than hating all things aviation? Would love to hear all about what you and your family are up to.

Glad you enjoy my musings!
