And not only wishes you a happy mother’s day but asks you to tell his Dad thank you for choosing me.
Now I’m crying.
I have a mom who loves me unconditionally, and I’m grateful she’s still with us after kicking cancer a few years ago. I have her love of music deep within my bones, and she’s a generous and full-hearted grandmother to my three kiddos.
That I get along with the mother of my children as well as I do makes me quite happy. Really. She’s an involved and dedicated mom to them, and there is no doubt she loves our kids beyond words. I am confident our refusal to use our kids as pawns in our divorce has meant good things not only for them, but for our relationships with them and each other.
I am lucky enough to have a mother-in-law who’s wickedly loyal, has a huge heart, and who has taken to my children being in her life as if they were from her own bloodline. What a blessing.
Even my former mother-in-law and I get along quite well, all things considered, with her warm hugs for both Tha Kate and me at virtually every function involving those same three kiddos who everyone seems to adore. I am so thankful.
But here’s what’s really cool, even with all of that motherly love in my life… I now get to spend my life with a woman who chooses to be a mom to my kids. She didn’t have to take on that role. I would have happily spent this life with her solely as my spouse. But she is The Most Amazing Stepmother Ever to my children… they ADORE and LOVE her, and I know their lives are better and brighter because of her influence, because of her unquestioned devotion and care for them.
I’m a ridiculously lucky man, and I am grateful beyond words for the love of the mothers in my universe.
When Apple tells you your computer has totally crashed & you’ve lost everything on it including all of your photos over 7 years, know what you do? Bring it to Daniel Holter. I don’t know how he did it but he managed to pull all my photos, music, everything off & put it safely on a separate hard drive. Then proceeded to reprogram my computer & everything is like brand new, safe & well in my world.
The love I have for this man right now is off the fucking charts.
There is exactly one person for whom this service is available. She just posted this. So, um, yeah… please do not bring me your tired, your poor, your crashedelectromagnetichuddled masses.
But you’re welcome, babe.
Also, what’s up with Apple’s “genius” status of late? They flat out told Kate she was screwed. She’d lost everything. She could buy a new computer and would probably be out a grand or two using a data recovery service that wouldn’t be able to promise any results. Granted, it took a little effort, but I didn’t even have to use any third party software… I just went through three steps all found in their BUILT IN DISK UTILITY tool.
Glad I sold my AAPL last year. I hate that I just typed that, but it is what it is. So frustrating.
Sometimes I even call her my girlfriend.
Someone is all sorts of cuddly after I’ve been gone too much this week for school.
There’s my girls.
Cold?! Absolutely not! It’s totally normal to study in a wool sweater, hat, scarf & gloves! Duh!
The soundtrack to the video game, Skyrim, is the best thing to study to. I’ve never been able to concentrate to music with any vocals so I used to listen to various movie soundtracks. Skyrim blows them all away. And oddly enough, (here’s the “awww” moment) it also makes me feel as if my husband is near by, which brings me comfort.
Thanks for the music, babe.
We should hook up. Definitely.
