Are any of you ladies getting special treatment for Mother's Day? I'm not. Yesterday I spent the whole day juggling cleaning the house and trying to entertain my daughter while my husband spent most of the freaking day upstairs playing video games. I also baked a pecan pie and strawberry cake yesterday. And yesterday morning my husband decided we should probably have bread with our meal so he's the bread person ....... he made the starter, mixed the loaf and put it in the oven to rise and let me finish the rest. I got up before dawn to finish the bread, get the kitchen cleaned ...... again ...... and start on lunch. His mom gets a special day because I'm cooking for his parents and his mom is getting a rose bush for Mother's day. I'm not getting anything.
I AM considering my husband letting us put the car in the shop to have something fixed instead of him doing it himself my gift. It cost $1100 and my husband could have done it for around $500 BUT it would have taken him a week and we needed the car. So I AM thankful for that. Just feeling a little bitter this morning because I didn't get to bed til almost 1am because of my daughter and then was back up less than 6 hours later to get everything ready. And my husband is still in there sleeping away at almost 9am.
My mil is bringing champagne and orange juice for mimosas .... and thank God ...... because I could really use a drink right now.
