Happy Belated Birthday to my Mom

My mom's birthday was yesterday--yes--Labor Day! And I totally spaced it!

Merle remembered it!

But not me!

I'm a B-a-d daughter!

While I ran from the Salvation Army store to the Parkwood Thrift store, in my quest to find my daughter the perfect albeit cheap last minuet dress for graduation, I did remember my mom enough to pick-up a shirt that I thought she might be able to wear. The shirt cost probable $1.50.

Okay, I guess this gonna make me sound just--oh so--cheap!

I made a birthday card for my mom on the computer, and then took the dollar fifty shirt and a candy bar over to her today. The candy bar I bought at dollar tree, which it sells four candy bars for a dollar.

Happy Birthday MOM!

H-mm! Maybe that explains the squeaking when I walk?

What I save by shopping the thrift stores and the supermarket sales I can put into something really important like a new dvd for the girls.

It's all about choices.

Hi Ann,

Yes it is!

I'm a homemaker and my husband works, and that means we live on a tight budget.

And that makes me cheap!

But boy, do I know how to make a dollar scream for mercey!

But we're splurging! On a pizza dinner at round tables tomorrow night for after my daughter's graduation.

Hi Jan ~~ I hope you have a great evening for your daughter's graduation
and your meal afterwards. I am sure
your Mum was happy with her gifts ~ we
don't count the cost, just the thought.
Thanks for your concern and prayers for
Ash. He is being fed by tube, poor kid.
I hope they can find the problem and fix it. Take care Jan and Congrats to your
daughter. Merle.

Hi Merle & Ipodmomma,

Merle-Poor Ash, I hope he gets better soon.

Thank you all for the congrats on my daughter, as you can imageon my husband and I as as proud as proud can be. And the dinner was really nice, and my mom and step-dad came as well.
