I’m happy to report that I’m slowly but surely getting over the cold that made me fall behind in these posts. Sadly, however, I gave the cold to my mother and she’s been sick on Mother’s Day. 😦
Let’s get caught up, shall we?
something you do every day
I’m a bit of a Twitter Whore. I love Twitter. I love how on Twitter I can say what I want and generally won’t be attacked for it if people disagree with me (unlike Facebook where people are not always as tolerant).
a favorite word
This is a tattoo that badly needs touching up. Buuut, it’s one of my favorite words… Hope. Having clinical depression sucks ass and sometimes on my bad days I need a little reminder to hang in there. This little gem does just that for me.
For Mother’s Day I made stuffed peppers for dinner. I’ve gotta say, they were pretty damn good. 🙂
something that makes you happy
This is my baby, Kira. Although there are days when I want to strangle her… I love her and she makes me happy. 🙂
One of the gifts I got for my mom for Mother’s Day is this sweet little nurse figurine. 🙂 She loved it, and I love her. ❤
I’ve been sick. That’s a shocker, right? 🙂 So yesterday and today’s pictures are cheats… but they are pictures I’ve taken, so they’re not total cheats.
someone who inspires me
First up, “someone who inspires you.” This is a picture of a picture of me and my mom a long ass time ago. 🙂 She doesn’t like me taking her picture so I had to use an old one. My mom is all kinds of awesome. She’s been a single mom most of my life and sure she had her lows but for the most part she did her best and I love her for it. She’s truly one of my best friends. After having to quit nursing school literally just a few weeks from finishing the RN program so that she could take care of my grandpa my mom just took her LPN test and passed! I’m so proud of her! My mama rocks!
a smell you adore
Speaking of how much my mom rocks… she makes THE BEST apple pie in the world. So when I had to take a picture of “a smell you adore” it was pretty simple… Mom’s pie. Ironically I’d just deleted a week old picture of a freshly baked pie off of my camera that I could have used for this. Instead I’m using a crappy cellphone pic from Xmas. 🙂
