Mother's Day 2006-Not A Good Thing

Ok, it's Mother's Day tomorrow...possibly the worst day of 2006 for me, maybe the worst day of the entire decade. Well that may be a slight exageration, no, no I don't think so!

I had a plan and it was a really good one, I was going to totally ignore it (the entire day) so it would go away. Seriously it's 24 hours and I can easily sleep 24 hours with breaks for snacks, no problem! With this fine plan completed I was on cruise control THEN IT HAPPENED things started coming in the mail, CARDS, with wonderful and supportive messages from my friends and family and my plan was ruined!!!! I tried hiding the cards away but it just didn't work I kept getting them out and looking at them . You see I'm hanging by that "thin red thread" on M3's t-shirts and those card senders are holding the other end so when I put the cards away the thread just started to unravel. I needed a new plan--fast!

New plan, just lay low, stay cool and make it through the day. Maybe rejoice in a no shower day or an entire day on the couch watching HGTV re-runs. This seemed a reasonable compromise and then I got a PHONE CALL, my BF and her family are going to Braves' Game for Mother's Day and I'm along coming too. No, no I explain, I have a plan I am laying low on Mother's Day I couldn't possibly go with you, yes, yes she says you were not going to lay low you were going to wallow in your misery all day and that is unacceptable. Damn friends, damn red threads, I even ended up getting the tickets on-line so I have to show up, they need my ID at will-call.

So, I'll go to the game, I'll get some sun, I'll have a couple of beers and I'll hang on as tight as I can to what's left of the red thread. A note to those holding on to the other end...PLEASE DON'T LET GO!

P.S I got a Pooh card from Kacey and it has an Atlanta postal stamp but no return address, if somebody has her here in the city limits please return her to her mother immediately :)

Happy Mothers Day! You may not have that baby in your arms yet, but you have already worked so hard for her. You are her mom!

I'm sorry you're so bummed, I know exactly how you're feeling. I didn't know how I'd get through Mother's day this year, but I know I have to, my little girl is waiting for me and I have to be strong. Keep busy, enjoy the beer and Monday will be here before you know it.

Also, you know if you need, I'm close, have a nice soft shoulder and a bottle of red.

Happy Mom's Day, Julie! Just think, next year at this time, we'll all be celebrating in grand style in Kacey's new car.
