Where does the time go?

I used to be so, so good about remembering birthdays, anniversaries, milestones in my loved ones lives, but not anymore. I'm either late in acknowledging the big event or forget it altogehter! I'm not sure when it happened.

Maybe it was when I hit the big 3-0.

Maybe it was when I changed jobs and my workload got bigger.

Maybe it was when I moved from using a written calendar to one on my computer/smartphone.

Wait a minute, those all happened around the same time. Mystery solved!

I did remember to get my Mother's Day cards in the mail so they'd arrive on time. Well, at least those that were going in town. I'll catch the rest of the special moms in my life next year!

This year I went the funny route with my mom's day cards for my mom and sisters. I found a great new line of Hallmark cards and they made me laugh out loud in the store so I had to get them!

First, is the one for my older sister, M. She has 3 very active boys and works 40+ hours a week. If I were her, I'd probably be in the corner, drooling on myself but she takes it all in stride! I think this card sums up my feelings perfectly.

Then for my mom, I went the route of pointing out that I'm the "good daughter" but that goes without saying!

THEN there's the one for my co-worker, LB. Well, it actually could have been for my co-workers, SL, LH and MB too - but I went with LB because I thought she needed a laugh after a couple of long weeks in and out of the office. But I made her share it with the others in the office!

Curiously, there was a bottle of wine on her desk when I put the card there on Friday. Hmm...


  1. You always make me laugh!! :)

  2. I tried the funny route with my mother one year. It did not go well! Now I know to always do the sappy "You're the greatest mother in the world and I will love you forever" cards. Until I don't want her to speak to me for a few months.

  3. I loved my Mother's day card! It made me smile and laugh...perfect!

  4. Left something for you over at my blog. :)
