Our escapades as the Hyzy House navigates, college, high school and whatever else crosses our path!

The thing I love most about my Mom is that she is ALWAYS on my side. No matter what. She never picks John over me. Although in our early years of dating I am pretty sure she liked him better than she liked me. That may have been more of a reflection on me and on my choice in male companions, than it was a deep abiding love for John. But since then... she always picks me. She even picks me over the grand kids. I don't think that's true for most grandmas. I know that no matter how outrageous my behavior, how irrational my reasoning or how bug-eyed crazy my thought processes, she ALWAYS picks ME! And while we may drive each other crazy because we are so much alike, I don't think there's a better gift than that. Happy Mother's Day - Mimi!
Another new feeder
My Mother's Day has been amazingly wonderful! I didn't even mention it during the preceding week, not because I was trying to trick anyone or test anyone, but because I didn't really need any gifts and for the most part, my family is good to me...mostly. But lo and behold when I got up in the morning, there were presents and cards on the table at my place.
Beautiful tulips and a new bird feeder
The kids did my chores, we went to Smoothie Cafe for lunch, the weather was beautiful, I took 2 walks with the pups, then a bubble bath and I got wonderful presents. Two new bird feeders - one hangs on the window and the other is a unique feeder for Orioles that you fill with an orange half and grape jelly! I know...grape jelly?... who knew. I also got my favorite thing....homemade cards. I've always told the kids, I don't need presents, all I ever really want is a homemade card from each of them. And to this day they've never let me down.
My FABULOUS cards!
I always look forward to seeing what they come up with.
Zack's are always funny. They either have cartoons or funny sayings, and generally they involve sarcasm, since that's what my children were weaned on. In the Hyzy House you get a steady diet of sarcasm. I was just thankful that this year's card did not involve any sort of fart or poop humor. Who knows, maybe he's growing up.
Brenna's cards are always an artistic work of art and generally involve a poem and are always all the mushy things she would never say out loud. This year's cards didn't let me down. Zack's card made me laugh and Brenna's card made me cry. All in all not a bad thing.
