A Cyber-Birthday Card

Dear Mom;

I write you this note well aware of the possibility that you may not see it. I know you don't always come see what goofy crap I come up with here. I get that you might even hate that I say crap.

While everyone is crazy with the hustle and bustle of the holiday, I wanted to dedicate this post to you. Today you are off doing what it is you do best, taking care of others, while secretly hoping we all forget that today you turn a milestone birthday.

It would be rude of me to reveal your age on the world wide web. I learned that the hard way when I educated the entire girl scout troop that you were not actually 39 when I was 10. Sorry about that, by the way.

So many times your birthday is overshadowed by another important birthday. But today Mom...today is all about you!! I really wish we could all be together this year. But like I said, you are off doing what you do best. You are taking care of others. You have had to nurse me through so much in my lifetime. UGH!! When do you get to take care of yourself?

As I watch Ty grow and witness his pain in the ass attitude evolution of self discovery, I'm amazed you did not kill all five of us growing up! Thank you for all you have done, Mom. You truly are an amazing woman, and a day does not go by that we don't appreciate what you've done for us brats.

Happy Birthday!!

When we get through this "Suck-It 2008", and get done ringing in "Bring-It 2009" we will throw you a proper party...when we can ALL be together. In the same room. At the same time. And not kill eachother.

World...It's Grandy's Mom's Birthday!! You will get plenty of opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and every other holiday I am forgetting at the moment. But for now...do Grandy a favor... Drop some bloggy lovin' on my Mom and wish her a Happy 70th Birthday.

Oops!!

Dang IT!!!!!

You didn't see that.

Bah, 70 is nothing. My mom is 82 (or 83, she lies about her age).

Happy Birthday to your mom.
