Mother's Day ( who thought of that one anyway?)

Well, I hope all you Mother's out there in blogging land received blessings and honor on your Mother's Day. Let me tell you just how special mine was. We began our day at the Best Western in Palatka, FL where we were staying for a wedding. You know how scrumptious the hotel breakfasts can be, enough said. After packing, loading , and arguing the children decided they had not eaten enough so we made the mistake of getting in the Dunkin Donuts drove thru line. After 15 minutes of not moving and allowing all 3 children to go in and pee we left. The line begin moving after we left, I think it was a conspiracy, they saw the out of town plate or something. So then we had to stop at McDonalds ( for those of you who know me you know how I feel about that one). More time wasted in order to fill their guts with smut. We did finally begin our journey home . After listening to arguing for far too long I decided to take matters into my own hands and treat their mouths. I won't tell you how, just use your imaginations. That worked long enough to get us to Tallahassee where the lunch time drama began. Now remember it was Mother's Day and my husband drove us to Hungry Howie's for lunch, I was not happy, at all. He thought I could go next store and get a smoothie or a wrap at the other restaurant. I wanted hot food, healthy food, not gut smut, ( the wraps were fine, just cold and processed ). Being the mature one in our family I allowed him to drive me to BK where I got a side salad . i had no intentions of eating it, just wanted to be difficult, it was my day remember? So I gave the salad to out 2 new pet lizards who we acquired on our journey. Then we had to go to McDonalds again because our youngest didn't want Pizza. I went hungry, sulking, constantly applying to lip gloss to get some kind of flavor satisfaction. We drove some more, made it to Dothan and Neal decided he would run in Dillards to check and see of they had some shoes that I liked and they didn't. While inside I managed to scarf down an Apple Pie that Mcdonald's had given us for messing up our order during lunch. I didn't want him to know just how hungry I was. Just think we were only like half way home !! If I continue to rehash this glorious day I may go postal. Needless to say, my day went unrecognized, yet very eventful. Hope yours was better. To date, I have not received any gifts, I did however get 2 precious cards from my youngest children. I guess it just goes to show you that we do what we do for our families because we want to and love them unconditionally.

Except for not being in Palatka and not having fast food. Mine sorta went the same way. Lots of running around for other people and stuff. I guess until your own kids get big enough to do stuff for you on Mothers Day you don't really get to relax on that day. I was cleaning and cooking for my Mom and Step Mom to come over. :)

Hey April-
Sorry your Mother's Day was less than ideal-the best thing to do is cherish the good, let go of the rest and remember this too shall pass. One day you'll be at home wishing they were little again and you were in the midst.
I love ya,
Lorie
