Today is a Special Day

First of all, Hi!

Hi guys.

I think I've got it together now.

Last night was the Arctic Monkey's show and it was fantastic!!

Their opening act was the Orwells...and they were a little...different. I'm pretty sure their lead singer was on some pretty substantial pharmaceuticals last night. I am pretty sure of this, because when they finished their set, he hopped off stage and then pushed and shoved his way through the crowd to the back of the venue like a mad man. Also his eyes kept rolling back in his head when he was singing...

Anyway, the act I cared about was great. I mean...their music always makes me feel...some kinda way. *wink wink* Hearing it live just made me feel that much more some kinda way. So future Mr. Booms....take note. I'm just saying.

That's not why today is special though. Today is special because it is Momma Boom's birthday. Although she will never let me post pictures of her on my blog, but is in thoughtful consideration about a guest post, she is a HUGE part of Boomer and my daily life. I would not be able to do any of the things I do without her help. So today I'd like to say thanks.

The only pic she'll let me post...

Thank you Mommy for keeping Boomer all summer, and then all winter break.

Thank you Mommy for keeping her for the 6 snow days she has had so far.

Thank you for picking her up when I need to stay late at work or teach voice.

Thank you for listening to me freak out and cry when I'm at my wits end with this kid.

Thank you for reminding me that this kid is basically me and that karma is a ...

Thank you for supporting me through the longest, craziest, most drawn out break up/divorce.

Thank you for helping me potty train Boomer.

Thank you for opening your bedroom door at 3am to your bawling daughter and wide awake new born granddaughter. Even though you were exhausted already from your own graduate studies baby.

Thank you for teaching me to be strong. To be graceful. To be tactful. That being smart is more important than being liked by a boy. For teaching me to be a lady always. To love God. To love my family. To have integrity. To be independent. To be respectful. To be thoughtful. To love books. To love Star Trek. For making me laugh until I cried. For letting me cry until there were no more tears. For telling me that it was time to stop crying and time to start doing.

Thank you for everything Mommy. I love you.

Happy Birthday.
