Did He Come Through?

HE TOTALLY DID!!!!

I am typing this on my brand new HP laptop!!! I don't care what kind it is. I just know it is fast and I can have a gazillion windows open and it still works! YAHOO!!!!!!!!

This says to me that he believes in me as a writer and knows that I NEED a working computer in order to move forward in fulfilling that dream. Okay, fine, it might say he wants me to shut the Hell up about how bad our old computer is but so what? I don't really care what it says and do you know why? I am typing this at lightning speed and it isn't freezing. I just typed the world know and the "k" didn't stick. I am in Heaven! Absolute Heaven!

And...

GUESS WHAT ELSE I GOT???

A spa package for one day and one night (and breakfast the second day)!!! With the works!

This says to me that he knows I need a break. This says he knows I am having a tough time right now and he loves me and knows I need to figure some stuff out (nothing major...just some soul searching things and maybe meds might be a good idea...that's for another post). Again, it probably says he's tired of me whining about getting a break and again, I don't care...I'm getting one and that is all that matters!

I slept in and got breakfast in bed (it was delicious and I would have taken a picture but I inhaled it, I was so hungry).

Nico and Tommy bought me Pretzel M&M's (my fave) and a card that made me cry:

Nico: Mom, you are the best mom in the world. I love you so much. I know I give you a hard time but in my heart I know you are always right and are looking out for me. Everything you do makes me want to be a better person. You are a great mom.

Tommy: Mom, I am so lucky to have a mom like you. You deserve more from me. You are the best mom. Even if I am mad at you, deep down, I love you with all my heart!

Belle bought me a blooming flower from Hallmark and made a poster of me with fun facts:

My mom is the best mom when it comes to supporting something.
My mom never gives up without a fight.
My mom is a really hard worker.
My mom means the world to me.
My mom is comforting.
I love my mom so much.
My mom showed me what a great parent looks like. I could not ask for a better mom than you! I love you, Mom!

All of the kids bought me the movie Thor which makes me very happy.

Leo and I went to Target (my favorite place) where I had a hot chocolate and because it was Mother's Day, I had whipped cream and caramel on top and when we came home, all four kids cleaned out my car (we had Leo's)! It looks AWESOME!

I even squeezed in a workout. It's wonderful what will happen when people go out of their way to make you happy.

I spent the rest of the day with all of my favorite people and had a very touching moment with my sisters where we (okay, mostly me) got teary-eyed because this relationship that I share with my sisters and my mom is so special that I am glad we were all together. There were a few moments where I had to remind Leo that it was Mother's Day but he was a good sport about it.

It was a great Mother's Day! I couldn't have asked for anything more! Leo, if you are reading, THANK YOU!

I'll be quiet now...at least until the week before my birthday so that gives you...2 whole weeks of not hearing a peep out of me! Enjoy it...might not happen again for awhile.

Yay! So happy that you got your laptop! And a spa day? I'm so jealous! I need one of those. Oh, and that soul searching/need to figure things out thing? Yes, me too!

I'm hoping this means less frantic emails to you. :) Glad I am not alone in the needing to figure some things out. If you ever need an ear, I'm only an email away!

I am like a new woman with this new computer! Who knew that the days could be so much brighter with a computer that doesn't freeze and 10 windows open at the same time! Leo and the kids did very well! Hope you had an equally good one!
