You see, my mother passed away when I was 10 years old. Cancer took away my mom. We didn't have any of the modern day conveniences we now have. Dishes were always done on the floor with a bucket of water. Mom would clean them while I rinse in another bucket of clean water. It was the same with our laundry. They were done in buckets of water on the floor. We would first rinse in one bucket, then another. Towels and bedsheets had to be squeezed dry with mom turning on one end and me on the other. Mom would be delighted with the washing machine we now have and the double sink. We don't have a dishwasher but a double sink is so much more when you have to wash your dishes in a bucket on the floor.
I am a mother now myself. I have a loving boy who just turned 9 and an inquisitive girl aged 11. Having grown up without a mother, I realize that the best Mother's Day gift is not something money can buy. The best Mother's Day gift is love and memories. Love from my children and for them to express their love to me in the form of hugs, kisses and being good kids now and good people in adulthood.
My love language is touch so naturally for Mother's Day, I would like to receive lots of hugs and kisses from the children from the moment I wake up till before I fall asleep at night. Hugs and Kisses, Love and Memories, they are all free. I would like to have them as much as I can. That is Mother's Day My Way.

I need a holiday. Ever since the maid left, I'm bogged down with housework. I have double the work she used to have since I have to look after and teach the kids as well. The previous arrangement was she looked after the housework while I look after the kids. Now, I do both. It would be really nice if I could start planning for a holiday and start looking for a Holiday Supply Online.
Perhaps I could try Atlanta Hotel Supply for my holiday but you know what? When you are the maid, the housekeeper, the tutor and a host of other things, a holiday is never ever a holiday. The unpacking and washing after a holiday is a nightmare so sometimes I'd rather not have a holiday! Perhaps a drink would suffice. Yes, Hotel Bar Supplies would be fine.
Many people do not like to pay a lot for the hotel they are staying in because they think what is the point, it is just a night or two and it is just for sleeping in but I think that a really good hotel can make your stay much more enjoyable. So, I don't mind paying for the hotel but I don't go for holidays much so I guess paying for a one or two nights stay once or twice a year is not so bad.
