This is not actually happening...  
We were at Six Flags all day (an early Mother's Day trip), and I logged in long enough to check the weather before we left.

Now I'm up late, watching Betty White host SNL: "Wizard of Ass! Totally worth it.

HalfshellHusband's hair is growing back in from his chemo, and it's darker than it's been in years (at least for now). Tonight, Christopher told him that it was because the pygmies had returned to his hair. Took a moment for him to realize his mistake...

Thank God it's almost over
Forgive me for sounding exceptionally dumb , but are you sure it was an early MOTHER's DAY trip?

Almost done with Mother's Day over here (dare I say, "Thank God it's over!" or would I have to dodge rotten tomatoes?)

I wouldn't insist on being force-fed gooey cake,just because I was lucky in the children department, as I do feel appreciated as a mum most of the time,but don't you find (just speaking for myself, of course)it's just one more thing on your plate ,being in charge of hauling in the wayward bits of the family for the annual cake and tea thing? It will take me miles of rowing to get rid of the extra pounds.
(plz forgive me if I took some of the sparkle from your celebrations by my acid comments)

Re: Thank God it's almost over
Haha! It does tend to stretch Mother's Day out, doesn't it?

Last year we went ON Mother's Day, only to discover that Six Flags was having a promotion for season pass holders to bring a friend free. That made the attendance about 200% of normal. My husband had to park in some random field -- for full price-- and walk on his (we now know) aching cancerous leg into the park because there was no tram service. The lines were atrocious, the kids got to go on maybe two rides, and it was evil.

So we went early this year (along with busloads of kids on field trips, but STILL less awful than last year). The fiasco with Christopher's "free" ticket that this year was limited to two months in the heat of summer when we never go-- followed by three ticket stations and then paying full price for him instead of having the office Internet discount-- nearly sent me over the edge.

It got better after that. ;)

Today seems better, and it's supposed to be rainy, so we probably won't do the miniature golfing I'd thought about. And yes, I DO have to do all the cat-herding to make it happen! Very bad yesterday-- HSH was prescribed morphine for his arthritic hip (instead of the hip-replacement he needs), and the effects were about as bad as shock treatment combined with chemo-brain. He was half-asleep and incredibly muddle-headed all day long, and it was aggravating. And that was the hangover from deciding on Friday that the side-effects were unliveable.

Whoops, too much ranting. But! I enjoy the thought of the day, though the execution often winds up being more my effort than anyones just like yours. Hope you've survived the calories and the organizational challenges! :D

It might have been a mistake but I do love the idea of pygmies returning to HSH's hair!! I am delighted to hear he's getting his hair back now, of course! :)

The pygmy idea is SO much more interesting than the truth! I loved it. :D

It's Shirley, the world's fattest sheep! Wonder what's lurking in her fleece... ;)

There is something about kids getting stuff slightly wrong that is incredibly endearing...and enormously funny! :D

What's lurking in Shirley's fleece? Well if Shaun wasn't actually in the icon I'd say it might be him?!! *g*

We've seen a couple of the videos, and the snoring episode has to be one of my favorites-- both for the insanity that unfolds from all of Shaun's failed solutions for the snoring, and for his wacky recurring dream of being in outer space. :D

Forgot to say I love the little prickly guy hiding amongst the cacti!!
