Shite! I just remembered my mom's b-day is tomorrow.
I've been a bit uhm, distracted, with the drama that is my life so I forgot. Bad daughter. Plus, we aren't really 'talking' right now. *sigh* I need to order something online that will get to her tomorrow. Any ideas besides flowers (which will be my fallback option). I will call her as well.

Thanks!

9. Pffft.
She'd probably take the opportunity to have me committed against my will.

10. I usually spend around $50 or so.
She is a vegetarian liberal just like me, but is spiritual. She likes to read and do crossword/soduku puzzles.

12. The edible arrangement might be a fun idea --
or maybe do a gift basket, include vegetarian goodies, soduku and crossword books, pencils. A book on/about spirituality. Bottle of wine. That type of thing. Do you live close enough to deliver or will you have to mail it?

13. That's the problem
She's in RI and I'm in NY. If I had been prepared, I could have done all that stuff. But I now I need it for tomorrow. I may do the edible arrangement or flower/plant thingy. I probably have to decide before noon...
