You can’t always get what you want.

If you read my post on Scones you would have known that what I didn’t  want for Mother’s Day was “I didn’t want to have to do anything”.  I was hoping McGyver would read the post and he and the Baby boy would clean the house and do the laundry on Saturday so Mother’s Day would be nice and relaxing.  The only thing they would need to do is fix me breakfast and dinner while I lounged around in luxury, okay more likely just praddle around, but that is luxury for me.

Somehow McGyver didn’t get the memo.  I even had the Baby boy read the blog, hoping he’d nudge Mcgyver a bit.  Saturday came and went and no evidence of house cleaning or laundry, hrmph!  So on Sunday, I made my breakfast, I cleaned the house, I did some laundry, I pouted and I may have been a bit grouchy to McGyver.  I was doing exactly what I didn’t want to do.

Somehow a little birdie (read Leah) told McGyver that mama wasn’t too happy so later that evening he finished the laundry, made a really great dinner, and burnt dessert.  Baby boy and McGyver had cards on hand with receipts of what they ordered me but hadn’t come in time.  The Baby boy was especially upset because he paid extra for 2 day shipping and it didn’t make it in two days.

My lovely daughter Leah was on the ball and sent me a gift on time, but I had to wait for the rest which is why this post is 5 days post Mother’s Day.

Here’s my array of cards and gifts and love.

Although you can’t always get what you want, but sometimes you just might find, you get what you need! 

How right the Rolling Stones were!

Yes, baby, I got just what I needed!

Check her out….a new lens for my camera.  An 18-200mm lens.

What does this mean? I can zoom near and far without having to change  my lens.

I’m getting advanced baby, now if I just knew how to work the camera…

 Naturally I had to put it to immediate use.

After attempting at least 10 times to get the lens on I took my first picture.

The Baby boy went to great lengths to find something thoughtful and cool.

He went to his favorite site for shopping Think Geek.

And yes the Baby boy is a geek.

He found an innovative loose tea brewer, just put the tea in, add hot water, put it on top of your mug and press.

The brewed tea drips into your mug, good bye tea bags.

I wanted to check out the zoom, so I took a shot out the window.

Far away…from inside my house…

and near…

Isn’t Becca dog sweet!

This next shot comes with a warning.

Do not continue if you have a weak stomach.

Don’t ask me why I took this picture.

It’s too gross for words.

I’m just warning you.

Really I am.

I told you it is horrific!

Someone call the doctor, please.

We have an infected in-grown toe nail.

Worse yet, we have a teenager who hasn’t cut his toe nails.

Look at the gurdue…I don’t think that’s a word…but there aren’t anyother words to describe this.

Thank goodness Leah sent me this.

I think I might need it.

And what really makes Mother’s Day?

When you read something like this!
