Happy Mothers Day to All You Mom's Out There

Yes I know it's a day late but I was spending Mothers Day with my kids. Here are my presents. The Sixth Graders went on a camping trip last week and my daughter got to do some blacksmithing. She made me this Heart Shaped Trivet.

And My son made me this Hand Painted Tile at school.

I'm so lucky to have such crafty kids

I have to work today. I'm really enjoying working at Petco. It's fun to get to play with the animals I can't have as pets. (Don't want to bring home an expensive meal for the cats ya know.)

There are two beautiful hand raised Sun Conures there right now. They are sweet and friendly and love attention. If you walk by they start squawking up a storm to get your attention and don't stop till you are out of sight or stop to scratch their heads.

I have to make sure I get back on later though, I took the 1000 comment challenge and haven't gotten very far. I thought I was a pretty good commenter but I don't just post frivolous comments. Yes sometimes all I have to say is a comment on how much I like your picture but I see lots of pictures and don't put that on all of them just the ones I really like. Sometimes I read a post and it's very heart felt or sad and I just don't have anything to say. I have even run across a few posts that I didn't agree with or found down right offensive. I didn't leave anything there either I follow the old rule
"If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all."

One or two blogs I found I left before I even read anything. They had advertising space on there blogs, not that I'm against that in these times having a little extra income is a good thing, But these particular blogs have rather obscene half naked people in them . Well I have two kids here and can see whats on the screen if they are near by and those ads are definitely not something I want them seeing.
So I will be back after the kids go to bed I hope everyone has some good posts to comment too LOL
Have a great Monday. Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the Penny Pincher Parade
