Thank you for the Mother's Day greeting :)
Tomorrow, Paul is picking me up after Adam gets on the bus...and taking me back to his place. I get to spend the whole day!!! I'll get so spend time with the boys, see the new cria (baby alpaca), and just have a whole "Paul Day". I miss him very much; since Gerald died, we don't get to see each other much. His day is chopped up, with the kids coming home at 11:00 am, and me living 1-1/2 hrs away...it's hard for him to pick me up often, or to come to visit :(
Gerald and I used to go to see him and the boys every Tuesday .... sometimes we'd get to baby-sit at Paul's place...but since he passed away..... and I can only drive around the village, I can't go out to see him :( This is sooo hard for me; we were so close....now I"m lucky if we talk 2 times a week...it's usually 1, and often, our talk is very short because he has a lot to do, and is just checking in to see how I am, and doesn't have time to talk. So it's kind of a "Hi, how are you? I'm fine too, no, nothing's new" kind of conversation. Spending the day with him is the best Mother's Day gift I could ever ask for.
Today, Mike is coming over after work...that's good too, but not special. What's special with Mike is when he has a day off during the week, and takes me "shopping", and then we go out for a bite to eat.....or, on his day off, he comes over late in the afternoon, we order pizza, and watch movies.
I'm very thankful I have these wonderful sons.
