Feeling better

Well, I'm feeling better and Rob came home yesterday, sick. I still sound gross, so I'm not going to the office. I'm working from home, and then at lunch, going shopping for Sydney's birthday present...tomorrow is her day and I've been sick and haven't done anything yet. We're getting her ears pierced this weekend and I'm going to start her collection of more grown up underwear. She's twelve and it's time to get her out of the kids department. It blows to be man-mom.

Not a word from her Mom. Don't know if she's sending anything or not. Rob wrote to ask her not to drop out of the kid's life and she never wrote him back. Sydney won't write because her Mom hasn't answered the last two letters. Did I say it blows to be Man-mom?

Sydney is mad...well, you get the picture. Every year, the two weeks before her bday are hell on her parents.

Okay, that's enough doom and gloom for the day. It's not really that bad. It's just a little overwhelming because I don't feel well. I'm still smiling and quilting. Lane

Lane, you are most likely the best "man-mom" around....Sydney is Lucky!! I'd really love to send Sydney a card or something for her Birthday...it's be a bit late, but still a surprise!! If you would email me your address, I'll get it right out...maybe a surprise during a let down, or down mood might help a bit? Take care....

Glad you are feeling better, sorry Rob is not....I have a cough today....and thankfully, I don't feel bad.

Hang in there.....

She is lucky to have you two that care for her...shame on her mom. I just love and adore my sons, I can't see a mom doing that but oh well...

Happy birthday to Sydney tomorrow. So good of you to take her to the ladies departments. She will feel good with her body I am sure.
Have a nice day

Happy Birthday to Sydney. I doubt her mom realizes the long term problems she is causing by not talking to her. Hoping she doesn't build up anger and rage over the desertion. She's got too much going for her.....bless her heart. Hope she has a great day....and both you and Rob feel better soon!

Sick and man-mom struggles? I'm sending warm and fuzzy thoughts your way. I hope Sydney has a wonderful day and that you and Rob don't catch too much of the brunt of her anger/frustration with the woman-mom. Hang in there.

I hope Rob gets better and you take care of yourself getting out tomorrow and don't overdue it. Make sure Sydney knows we all wish her a Happy Birthday. You 2 are great parents and doing a great job with her, y'all deserve a big pat on the backs for what you have done so far. Take care my friend
