Yesterday we went to The Can today for Mother’s Day Brunch with the moms at Aunt Gloria and Uncle Bill’s house. We also dedicated this day in memory of Auntie Nell, may she rest in peace. We had a great time. There was plenty of food, had the domino games going, and eventually the young, old schools got a game of basketball going. The day was going well, with no incidents.

After leaving Auntie Gloria’s, we took the party to Debo’s. And of course, it was on then. It would take my husband and I to cause a ruckus, however. As we were turning into Debos, Seon kind of did a slight spinout because she lives off of a gravel street. Leave it to me to suggest to him, “You should’ve done a full donut. I’ve been wanting to do that every since we got the car.” And what does my dear hubby do? He backs up and does the donut. Now, we were thinking we were the only ones outside. We didn’t see the people sitting in their cars across the street. Needless to say, they come across the street talking about their kids being outside and they could have gotten hurt. Seon apologized, saying he didn’t see the kids and if he would have he wouldn’t have done it. Of course, they didn’t want to let it go. As I’m walking up they are still yakking. I’d had a few drinks and was not in the mood to listen to it. I walk up, ready to do the Bonnie and Clyde thing with my husband. He couldn’t hit her ass, but I definitely could. Debo was walking up talking about coming out of retirment. Needless to say, nothing jumped off. Fish kind of calmed his neighbors down and we headed to the house. About 10 minutes later, four cop cars come pulling up. But the night ended well. No one went to jail. Seon admitted what he did and apologized. The cops accepted and let us enjoy the rest of our evening.

I enjoyed seeing crazy, rowdy family. I realized that I miss it and that I need to go home more often.

Photos to come soon.


No special Mother’s Day for me May 12, 2008

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!
