That is wonderful that your mom has made it back to the US for good. Congratulations! My day has been alright so far, no real ups or downs yet. Was thinking about starting a slow cooker meal for dinner tonight to save some money.

wow that sounds like you could get some great experience, if you like that kinda work, how come you dont really want to stay is it the people you work for or not getting paid.. i had thought before i got my job of volunteering somewhere but we needed my extra money too bad. and then when this job came up i prayed for it and got it and its the best for me.. i wish you the best too, in the job your doing now or finding a new paid one.. take care :)

i am starting to love the kids at work, my patients. but right now, i just really need to earn. there are a lot of things, more important things that i want to achieve right now. it is hard because i also want to move out but i can't afford that yet. i am also praying to find a job that pays...

That is a blessing to have your Mom back at home and both of you are enjoying talking together. So many good things coming your way, in regards to having such nice compliments from your boss and customers for doing a good job must be quite exhilerating for you. Way to Go laken darling! I'm on good footing also, and my day is all happiness. My mom and I had a nice luncheon and she cooked me a delicious egg salad sandwiches which tasted out of this world! The best part was eating her homemade cherry pie! Then we both viewed some photos on the computer and surfed the internet. Then she got hold of her camera and we took pictures outside in the sun. We had a great time. Oh and also, I got the good news that I am going to be working as an assistance on a web desigh project with my friend. I am looking forward to this experience. I am so happy that I am smiling all day! I wish you too many more happy days and moments with your family! :)

Glad to hear about the phone call. That must have been just wonderful. Busy is good. And hearing positive things from your boss and your customers must make you feelings sore. How great! My day? My grandson was being defiant. Isn't doing his homework. In a second. No not yet. Blah blah blah. So tired of it. Now they have gone to bed. Thank goodness. I am so tired of it.

I'm glad to hear that your day went so well. And I'm glad that you and your mother have been able to get over the hurdle that you faced. Today my day has been pretty smooth. Which I'm thankful for as the week was very busy and I had a lot of deadlines to meet. So I'm glad things have calmed down. I have been looking forward to this time of the week.

I too hope that your relationship with your mother will stay a close one like you want it too. It's hard when we disagree with our mothers or argue as they are our parent and we want to be close to them. Keep me posted on how you and your mom are doing.

That is great to hear that your mother is home and that she is staying for good. I know that getting some news like that would be something that I would be really, really excited about. With that said, my day has just been a pretty much average day so far. There is really nothing going on, my daughter is at school and my son is messing around on the other computer. Of course, Paul did lose his first tooth today, so that is something that is kind of exciting.

wow sounds like you did have a great day. congrats on the phone call from your mom i am sure that made you really happy :) my day has actually been a very long day....i did not sleep at all last night because i was at my grandmas and she ended up going to the hospital because she was having trouble breathing. they did some tests and they gave her breathing treatments and now she is doing way better so she went home last night she was never omitted :D but we didnt leave there until after 4:00 am then we went and filled her perscriptions and then got some breakfast. by the time we did all that it was after 5:00 am when we got her in her hosue and settled eating breakfast. there was no point in going to sleep since i had to get home to make sure my husband was awake so he could get ready to leave. i got about 15-20 min of a nap before he left but the kids were awake so i had to get up. then i swept and mopped the floors. my husbands mom took my oldest daughter for the day and they went and picked strawberries and she had a great time. i cleaned a little more then since my youngest took a nap then i layed down and got about 30 min to an hour nap. had some errands to run when my hubby got home and now i am mylotting for a while but definately going to try to go to bed early because yesturday morning i was up really early going to help my grandma out so i am very worn out lol. so glad it is the weekend. then back at grandmas on sunday.

I had another fight with my daughter and had to call the police. I don't know where she went too. She was out of control and I called the number the cps worker gave me I have not had a call back yet. I know how good it feels to have a mother so good luck with her.

That's wonderful! I am so glad to hear you and your mother are making amends. I think that the relationship between a mom and daughter is one of the most fulfilling there is. I have not had the pleasure of having a relationship with my own mother but I have a very good relationship with my own daughters. I cherish that.
