Last night I showed up to work and it was really my night off. Only two techs are needed on the third shift and three of us showed up. We all looked at each other for a few moments then started to laugh. I was the one who wasn't supposed to be here but I let the other two guys choose if they wanted to go home. One of the guys happily left. But first he called his wife and jokingly said "Make sure your boyfriend's gone. I'm coming home now."

Why don't I ever screw up the other way around and forget to come in when I'm supposed to work?

*sigh*

Today is my Mother's birthday. She would have been 82. She passed away in November of 1992 when she was only 63. It's funny how one never really gets over the death of a much loved parent. In raising my children, there were many times I wish I could have consulted her, asked her for advice and shared the children's triumphs and accomplishments with her. After she was gone there were many times I'd ask myself "What would Mom do in this situation?" Shortly after she died, there were many times I'd reach for the phone to call her only to remember she wasn't here on earth anymore. She loved her grandchildren very much and always was there for them. And she loved her children very much and she was always there for us, too. She was wise, funny, witty, creative and loving. Her logic and good sense was impeccable. When you went to her with a problem, she always approached it in a way that made you think it through. She didn't dish out answers, she simply helped one seek out one's own answers by posing looking at the problem from several different points of view. She new more useless trivia information than anyone I have ever known. She was patient, tolerant and open minded and there weren't too many people she didn't like and even less that she couldn't get along with. It was rare when she lost her temperand even more rare when she ever struck us as children. It just wasn't her way.

Fall is a very difficult time for me in regards to missing my Mom. She was born in September and died in November and was laid to rest two days before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving and Christmas that year was a bust, as they were for many years after her passing. She was the hub of the wheel and when she was gone, the wheel kind of fell apart.

I am not looking for any condolences or sympathy. I am simply sharing who my mother was with a group of friends. You all would have loved her.

If I may be so bold and take this liberty......can I declare today "FTF think lovingly of your Mother Day"?

Lol I agree mostly, but I really wanna learn how all of it ties together, and be able to calculate the long distance shots(so IF (and unlikely it is) shtf and I have to know, I do but mostly because it's going to keep my mind "sharp" and keep me practiced in math for when I go take the college class.

I do Sudoku and crossword puzzles to keep my mind sharp. At least they make sense!
