Happy Mother’s Day!

Published May 8, 2011 - 4 Comments

I went looking for a nice picture to put on the blog for Mother’s Day.  There were many great ones, and then I saw the little gem that you see here… and I laughed!  Mum is probably used to my unique sense of card choices by now, but I still like to try to surprise her from time to time.  I hope this did just that!

So to my Mum… thank you for putting up with all my crap over the last almost-39 years!  You sure do have a lot of patience!  I love you, and hope that you have a great day!

And to all Mums everywhere…

Happy Mother’s Day!

Father’s Day

Published June 21, 2010 - 2 Comments

Yesterday was Father’s Day.  Between working until 7am, sleeping for a few hours, and then going to see my Dad and my kids, there wasn’t much time left over to blog.  (Yeah, I did manage to squeeze out one about 123LinkIt, but even that was rushed)

I think that Father’s Day gets a bit of a bum rap (is that even how you spell that?  Looks kinda silly) compared to Mother’s Day sometimes.  It just doesn’t seem to have the same zing and pizazz that Mother’s Day has.  Hell, even where I work, you get an additional financial incentive for working on Mother’s Day (regardless of your sex and/or parental status)… what do you get for Father’s Day?  Nadda.  Try to figure that one out!

But that’s ok.  There are more important things than money.  (Seriously, yes there are.)  My kids surprised me with cards that they had made at school.  They were really well done.  My son’s was the typical boy-themed card.  Thanking me for the super-soakers I had bought them.. ice cream.. wrestling.. playing ball and watching TV.  My daughter’s was a little different…

Awww.. how well does she know me?  Meatballs, pop, black hat (I honestly thought it was blue until she wrote that.  So I asked someone.. apparently it’s black!), music videos, So You Think You Can Dance… and sleeping?  Hey now!  It’s not my fault that the kids won’t sleep in  past 6:30am on a Saturday!

Hope that all the Fathers out there had a great day yesterday!
