One of Those Days

It's been a quiet day really. My girls were outside playing. Gabbi was inside with me just kind of doing our thing. She playing with toys, me kind of staring at my homework, not concentrating on it too well. I out of the corner of my eye watched the Michael Jackson Memorial thing on TV. There was some good singing and some very moving speeches. I have really neglected to say much about the deaths of all the celebrities on this blog, but honestly there has been so much news coverage on it, I really didn't figure I needed to add to it. I sometimes want to talk about something different than what everyone else is talking about.

Other than that my mom just stopped by for a visit. My birth mom. I always feel I have to point that out because I rarely EVER see her. She doesn't live too terribly far but we just don't get the chance to see each other often. I see my step mom all the time. I don't really call her that but for clarification I guess I sometimes have to. Why does it feel rude? I guess she never liked being called a "step" mom. Though it's by no means a bad thing at all! She raised me so therefore disliked the term. I can't say I blame her. I don't like it when someone calls my younger sisters my half sisters, though they are, they feel just as whole to me as any other sister. I am rambling today but I bet there are plenty of people who can relate to what I say! It was nice visiting with my mom. I am now going to go cook some supper for the family. Spaghetti night!

As for the cookie recipe that I mentioned below, I simply stated it was no longer MY secret recipe but rather a secret FAMILY recipe. So....it's still a secret. Ha!

I know what you mean about the step thing. It takes a lot of work and love to be the parent and step or not if you can pull that off it's great. Looks like your step-mom did that.

Have a terrific day. :)

Glad your able to have a relationship with your birth mom. I was not raised by my father so I find it really hard to relate to him. I've followed your blog for a long time.

If your sisters were your adopted sisters, no one would call them that. "Half" sisters are sisters, period.

I'm glad you got to see your birth mom.

I had a feeling you'd keep your secret recipe a family secret, but figured it was worth asking ;)

I know, my brother has a "half" sister, and she hates for us to refer her as that! Hope you have a great day Mama!
