Happy Mother's Day, everyone! I had a good, but busy day. We traveled an hour north to civilization (Maryland) for "rations"...diapers, bulk everything (who knew we needed 40 thousand napkins and 2 vats of peanut butter?), Princess and My Little Pony underwear (for Tracy, of course) and other necessary items. I truly dislike shopping, but I hung in there and the girls were great for us. They enjoy "chopping", especially when they are allowed to watch movies in the van on the way up and back. Embarrassed to admit we do it, but we have succumbed to the in-car DVD for long trips. I thought of you, Brooke, and tried to feed lunch to my children in Sams, but it seemed that they were mostly sampling dog food today...I can be frugal, but not THAT frugal.

Got a fantastic Mother's Day present from India...a booklet of pictures of her from preschool that span the entire year; first day, taking a nap, eating lunch, even playing a washtub bass! It brought tears to my eyes; she's become such a big big girl in the last year. And Tracy's gift to me was a "certificate" for a girl's night out with as many friends as I can cram in the van, during which he provides transportation and some other surprises that he will not divulge. Should be a blast, and very creative. Jay, the cat, left me a fur ball on the back step...a very thoughtful gift, and truly from deep down. Can't wait to see what he gives Tracy for Father's Day!

Happy mom's day! I'm glad you guys had a great day.

I liked your salmon picture. Salmon was my favorite food. I ate it every way imaginable as often as I could. In Oregon I did everything but spawn with them. Then...last year I went to Vegas and had an allergic reaction. Thought is was a fluke and tried it again at a friends house. Same thing. It was like putting down the crack pipe.

Enjoy your week.

Glad they didn't want the dog food. Doesn't it just get frustrating when they don't have good samples? Happy Mother's day and looking forward to hearing how Tracy handles girl's night out.
