Statistically Speaking...

I guess statistically speaking, I didn't have that great of a Mother's Day. 33% of my children didn't even speak to me in person. Only 1 of my twelve children got me a card and it was addressed to Claudia. Salinda is the only one who gave me a gift and a couple other's insinuated they might get me something. My husband and mother gave me nice cards, but I'm not their mother.

But you know what? It wasn't a bad day. Only one long meltdown and there were so many curse words in it that I started laughing right in the middle of it. I hadn't heard the F word that many times in a long time. It was some soliloquy about how this particular child had had his life ruined by Bart and I and he wished every day he'd never been adopted into this GDMF family.

Only a couple other kids were intentionally mean to me, and some even attempted to be nice. So all in all, a good day.

This morning I am leaving for Austin and San Antonio TX. I have already had a coughing spell that resulted in me puking all over my pants and sweatshirt and the bedspread... Dang I love this lung stuff....

Have to go for now.... have to finish packing and head to the shuttle....

Ok, I'll admit that I LOVE THIS POST. I am envious of your down to earth, matter of fact attitude. I hope to get there one day. Happy Belated Mother's Day to one *expletive* of a mom. ;)

yes..you can read mine. It was a bad day. hubby tried but as you said..I am not his mother. Ours were just mean and selfish. One of them threw this out....I miss my REAL mom!!! ARGH#@$@#$#$#

Anyway, I am over it..once again. I heard something once..Expect nothing and you wont be disappointed...but is that really possible.
