My thoughts of being pampered and appreciated today quickly faded when I got up this morning to make coffee and cook breakfast. Not quite what I expected, but we were running late in getting ready for church, so it was really no big deal.
Yesterday, I’d told S that I’d like him to make his lasgna for me for dinner. So after church, he dropped K and I off at home (D had spent the weekend with his friend) and he went to the store to get the rest of what he needed for dinner. I had to run to the store to get Meme’s gift, since S didn’t want to stop and get it last night while we were out. While there I decided to pick myself out a few things from myself for Mother’s Day since it was obvious that no one else had thought about getting me anything.
When I get back home, the lasagna was ready, I prepared Meme’s gift and we headed to her house to take her dinner and her gift. We get back home and I help S finish our dinner. We sit down to eat and afterwards I’m off to the kitchen to clean up what S didn’t clean while he cooked, as well as picking up the mess K had left all of the family room. Later, I make our usual evening coffee and S and I down to relax.
All day, I’d been secretly hoping that he’d had bought me something and would spring it on me any minute. But my earlier assumption had been right, he hadn’t. He’d told me “Happy Mother’s Day” throughout the day, but I was still kind of sad that he didn’t even get me a card. And it’s not like we didn’t have a few extra dollars in the bank for him to get something. If there isn’t any other day that I’d like to be shown a little bit appreciation, I’d expect it on Mother’s Day. I ask myself if I’m whining over nothing. I just felt unappreciated – B didn’t even call me until late in the evening – a call that I missed and he didn’t even call back. At one time, it was guaranteed that he’d acknowledge me on Mother’s Day with some small token of appreciation. And then D didn’t make it home until almost 9pm.
Oh well, I will just chalk it up and move on to tomorrow. Happy Mother’s Day to me!
