They Can't Live Without Me, And the Feeling is Mutual


I'm not really a slacker, I just haven't been blogging because we've had a lot of other things going on. The month of May always brings plenty to do with end-of-school performances, picnics and field trips, and soccer season was late, too (rainout/reschedule rainout/reschedule, etc.). I've been doing several home studies for the contracted agency that I work for occasionally, too. We've adopted two new computers, and fought two computer viruses (virii?) as well.

So - that's my excuse, even if I am a slacker at blogging. I've missed you, if anyone is still out there to hear me say so.
Tonight I clicked down the Caller ID list on the phone, looking for a particular call. I didn't find the one I was looking for, but this is what I *did* find:

Hugger
Ben
Sarah

Liz
Father's Cell

When I find something for Father that he can't find, I often remind him that I've done it because, "I don't ever want you to think you can live without me!" Apparently, it's true for him, and for the rest of the family, also.
Two and a half days worth of phone calls, and that's who's called our house. Apparently, we're very close.
Either that, or we need to get a life!

Seriously, though. Tomorrow is Mother's Day, and I am Blessed Above Measure. Blessed to be the wife of FatherOfThemAll; Blessed to be Mom to Sarah, Ben, Liz (and their spouses), Hugger, Teenager, and Whistle; Blessed to be Grandma to C. and E., H. and A., CN and yet-to-be-born G.; and Blessed also to be Other Mother to more than 160 others out there, who were in our home for a while, and our hearts forever. Who could ask for more? I love you all!

Thank you for visitng my blog. You left me with a big question though. We are in the same age bracket. I am wondering when you made your decision, what was involved and if you don't mind, what the decision was and why. We would love to hear from as many different people as possible, and all input is appreciated
