Love Remember Forever

Yesterday was alright. We were so busy, running from one place to another that I was mostly forgotten it seems. I managed to pamper myself a bit first thing in the morning though. I took a nice hot bath and actually took the time to condition my hair and moisturize my skin after. Then I painted my nails and even did my hair, and for the first time a year I put on some eyeliner and mascara. Honestly though I've worn make up all of ten times in my entire life. I had no clue how to do it. I didn't even know how to open the eyeliner. Sad I tell you.
We went to my nana's (where my dad is staying now that him and my mom had their little blow-up. He's looking for his own place now.) and brought pictures for my nana, my auntie and my dad. Then we went to my mom's and brought her her mother's day present (An 8x11in photograph of Skyler looking adorable). Then we went to the store, then home, then to get C's mom from work, then out to his parents place outside of the city.

Skyler got like literally no sleep yesterday and is consequently miserable today, and all of last night. I can't blame the poor kid. He's actually started sleeping through the nights now, he's been going for about 6-7 hours at a time without even waking up to eat. And he naps during the day. Visiting C's family was well. What can I say? I mean it's always interesting. I brought my crochet. I'm making a ripple blanket for myself for a change. I wanted something girly, I ended up with blue. Eh what can I say blue is my favourite colour.

For mother's day C did well.. nothing. I'm not exactly pleased about it. Not like I expected a diamond necklace, but maybe a backrub or offering to watch the baby for a while. Ah well whatever.. My mom gave me flowers, but the very best present I got was from my girlfriend. (I managed to hold back the tears til I was alone.) There are some people who just get it.. And I am absolutely blessed to have her as my friend.
I haven't been able to find any tulips this year for Sophie, and she knew how much it meant to me. And the next picture is a close up of the bracelet around the bottom. I'm trying not to tear up right now looking at it.

I'm sorry that your Mother's Day didn't out like you had wanted. That's so sweet of your friend to do for you. The tulips are beautiful as well as the bracelet.

I like what you've done with your header on your blog.

Wow! What a wonderful gift. Too bad your family didn't do as well. I didn't get anything yesterday. I didn't even think about it until this post, LOL. I was so busy trying to take care of my mom and my MIL that I didn't think about it.

Somehow, only a few people really get it. Even my Mom (who had a miscarriage herself) didn't make any reference to the two babies who weren't there. You are very lucky to have a friend like that... Happy mother's day.
