...But I actually have NOTHING to complain/be wounded about re: Mother's Day. Au contraire, in fact! At the risk of sounding smug and making you all delete me from your feeders, my husband is SO nice!
Reason the first: Did in fact remember that it was Mother's Day. Even this is deserving of points.
Reason the second: Made breakfast. Involving bacon, so, score!
Reason the third: Made two cards, one from kids, which included a gift certificate for a massage, and one from him including a gift card. A gift card specifically designated for a bathing suit, which I had been randomly complaining about needing but had NOT asked for and did not expect.
Reason the fourth: Both cards had funny little POEMS in them, which I loved.
Reason the fifth: (BIG reason here) Remembered weeks in advance that our anniversary is this Thursday. Arranged for babysitting and a night away this Friday. Like, OVERNIGHT. A date that lasts for TWO SOLID DAYS. That I did not have to plan for. Again. REMEMBERED ANNIVERSARY without prompting.
Everyone sufficiently impressed?
Now, I realize I am greatly veering from my usual format of moaning and kvetching here. I'll try to sound bitter and ungrateful again next post, I promise.
