Mother's Day

Hard does not even begin to describe yesterday. There are not words. I was ok most of the time, but moments and fits were inerspersed throughout the day without warning.

I got the new computer as a birthday/mother's day gift and I also got Rachael Ray's new Express Lane Meals cookbook. I LOVE Rachael Ray and her cookbooks. She's adorable and charming and has the right philosophy about dinner - if it can't be on the table in 30 minutes - don't do it!

I am very excited about the new cookbook and will finally start cooking again - I haven't done much of that since Mom died in March and it's begining to be a problem!

I like o have people over for dinner instead of going out. It's less expensive and more fun, tastes better and I don't have to make my kids sit still while we talk and laugh afer dinner. I'm looking forward to being at home more and to making a home more. It's time and I'm ready.

The shop will be open in about another week. There has been so much to do with the remodeling and restocking, etc. It is going to look totally different and I'm excited about it. We're going to open up with a HUGE sale and it's going to be GREAT!!!

Thanks to all who called, emailed, and kept me in their prayers yesterday - I felt it and I truly appreciate it.

I'll keep you posted!

I totally know what you mean. I am that way with father's day and it has been nearly 20 years. Birthdays are hard too. On those days, I think about the good times, and that helps.

Hugs for you!
