It wasn’t too bad. A bit of a mopey feeling during the day. Moppy? Moppey? You know what I mean…it certainly wasn’t about cleaning floors. And of course missing my boy who should be about two weeks old and in my arms by now.
I waited until this morning to invite the family over for supper. I just wasn’t sure what kind of day it would be for me. I texted E and C. E called I thought he said they would try to come by. But they didn’t. When Mom came she said C had invited her family over to their house. I’m not sure why E didn’t say that. I realize it was a last minute invitation but I was here with all this food and only my parents came to eat it.
Mom and I were both in pretty good spirits. Dad was mowing the alfalfa behind my house so hopped off the tractor to eat with us. It was a good visit. I sent a lot of leftover food home with them.
I feel so lucky to have both my parents in good health. They might not always get along with eachother but they are always there for me, each in their own way.
C and I went in together and gave her tickets for all of us girls to see the Sing Along Sound of Music. This has always been one of our favorite films. She really seemed excited about it and was even talking about coming up with a costume.
I just found out that other teacher had her baby today.
On Mother’s Day.
Everytime I think I’m doing ok something like this happens.
I’m really wondering if I’m the butt of some huge cosmic joke.
Someone out there must be really laughing.
I hate Mother’s Day and I wish everyone would just shut up about it.
