On Monday, Vogon only put in a few hours at work and told someone on the phone that he was taking the day off to take care of me because I was sick. I was confused because I've got self-care for sinus flareups down cold. Today, he's actually sick. *snerk*

When did Mother's Day cards became so complex? With six cards to buy for far-away relatives, I bypassed the more expensive cards to get the 99-cent Hallmark cards to embellish at home before mailing them. I nearly peed myself laughing when she wrote in her aunt's card, "Get married with [uncle]!". (They got married almost two years ago; she *really* liked the party.)

My husband managed to find the one Mother's Day card with a fart joke in it. ;) I'm sure my MIL will be so pleased.

Is that a Hallmark card? I want to go read it in the store now.

Laurel and I picked cards in three themes: bugs for my sister and mother, bunnies for Himself's mother and paternal grandmother, and bears for Vogon's mother and Himself's maternal grandmother.

I watched her very carefully after she drew a picture of my sister kicking my butt in my sister's card. It's an image that's probably been in her head since I replied to Vogon asking me why I was buying Mother's Day cards if I don't really like the holiday that my sister would kick my butt if I didn't. (She would.)

I think it was a Hallmark card. It had a vintage photo on the front that said "Everything I need to know, I learned from you, Mom", and the inside said "Except how to fart. I learned that from Dad."

Love the fairy doors! I really like public, non-sponsered art that just springs up...there' a person here in ATL who makes these plywood cutout shoes on feet. They pop up in the oddest places, and it's always neat to find a new one...
