Happy Mother’s Day to all of us who should be being pampered today.

Alas, it appears I am not.

My fur babies woke me up at 6 to go potty.  My husband, who did get me a huge bouquet of roses and a card, left me with his popcorn maker to clean and requested waffles for breakfast.

Really?

If that isn’t enough pampering, our kids called and wished me a happy Mother’s Day with no mention of even bringing me a card-but one asked me to watch the grandkids tomorrow night.

So this special day-could be it will improve, at least I’m hoping it does.  But if not, when dh comes home from work, I’ll make a kale salad-but he can grill the protein and put some tater tots in the oven and serve me.

Thank you and have a great day.

    • Oh my, your day sounds similar to mine.  I just now asked hubby if he called his mother.  He wondered why he should have. frown

    • ended better than it started tuliplady.  dd called at 4:10 and asked us over for dinner...

      it was a nice evening but we left the pup in the house for almost 4 hours and she had an “accident” on the rug.

    • @ tuliplady - At least your hubby talks to his mom.  I asked my hubby to call his mom but I know he didn’t.  They are not on speaking terms. frown

      Carine- Glad your day improved.

    • Diane, my dh calls out of pure “obligation“.  His mother (the term in this case is quite loose-she gave birth and holds it over both kids heads)is:  narcissistic, egotistical, OCD, a hoarder, selfish and  feels entitled to be treated like a queen, she’s a taker and never thinks of anyone else unless she wants something from them.

      Had that car accident in November-she’s only called me once and that was to ask if we had made her a guest room!

      I sweetly replied that I was in no condition for guests and that since her grandchildren had disowned her, her son worked, she has no money and can’t drive-what would she actually do here?

      Suddenly she decided that she had to go.  estatic

    • Carine - My mother-in-law disowned my husband last year. :(
      Actually we think she’s mentally ill which might explain some of her behavior.  Her daughter has bi-polar and I hear that’s hereditary.

    • could very well be Diane.  We‘re sure dh’s “mom” has several mental illnesses-but she (probably like yours)believes that if you think she’s the least bit wrong0YOU‘RE the one who needs to be in a mental institution and meds...

      so sad, really.  both these women probably need family more than ever but no one wants anything to do with them.

      just sad.

    • I had to laugh when you mentioned your hub wanted waffles..lol..MEN! Glad to hear your daughter invited you over.  My hub is also embroiled in a situation with his mother..she has the beginnings of Alzheimer’s and will be en route to an assisted living facility next Saturday..will be very stressful for the family next weekend.

    • it is very stressful.  my dad has it and my mom refuses to let the Alz Assn help her.  they don’t drive and that leaves things squarely on my ds’ shoulders.

      dh’s is just got so many mental issues going on that we should add those to it.  SIL just had breast cancer surgery about 2 months ago and her son, our nephew (27), has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer around his heart.

      We dealt w/ her from 1995-2012.  She did nothing but complain about us and wanted her dd. well, no one there wants her either and their plates are overflowing w/o her.

      can’t move here-she’s burnt every bridge she had.
