Some people have asked how my mother’s day went. It wasn’t anything spectacular but I was happy with it. I wish I had done more for my mom. She has done so much for me that I can never truly repay her. I had been planning on making her a photobook but I ran into difficulties with too many photos on too many different computer, cds and photo sites. I did organize my siblings to make a fruit crepe brunch on Saturday morning though. My sister also bought her an outfit from all of us. I didn’t even see her Sunday and forgot to call her. She wasn’t upset at all though since we had celebrated on Saturday.
I was hoping that when I came home from work on Saturday night my husband would surprise me with a clean house (especially since I had told him that’s what I wanted). Instead I found a sweet card and nice leather purse. Earlier, I had jokingly told him that I wanted a designer purse for Mothers Day. It’s a nice purse but I think I’m going to return it. I feel almost guilty about spending so much on just a purse. There are a lot better things to spend the money on. Besides it doesn’t even have a designer label, and what’s the fun of having an expensive purse if nobody else knows it’s expensive?
Sweet Pea’s gift was to let us all sleep in until 8:30 on Sunday. Then we had a quick breakfast and got ready for church. The sermon was a nice tribute to mothers. I especially liked the part where the pastor said that mothers need a supportive partner. That touched my husband as well and he apologized for not being home more often. And then he left to run some errands! I didn’t actually mind too much since I like to have my traditional Sunday afternoon nap. By the time I woke up from the nap, I only had a little while to feed myself, feed sweet pea and get ready for work. I’m a waitress so I got to serve all the families celebrating mother’s day. It sucks to have to work on a holiday meant to honour you.
When I got home that night I was surprised with a clean kitchen and freshly baked cookies. That was the best present of all! Anything that gives me more free time and involves chocolate is a great gift. I’m looking forward to the next Mothers day when maybe my kids will actually understand what’s going on.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful Mother's Day!
