So most of you know that I lost my mom to cancer just over 5 years ago. It was before I was even pregnant with my little girl. Since then, Mother's Day has been hard. It's really hard for me to get so excited about my kids/husband doing things for me when most of the day I think about my mom. I want to enjoy Mother's Day so much, but it's so hard for me too.
book (yes, I am a little behind, but I am loving it). The men arrived late on Friday and the rest of the weekend at the lake was very nice. I got a new bathing suit for Mother's Day and a cover up for the summer. I hadn't gotten a new bathing suit or cover up in 3 years, so it was time.
Well it was raining, and I was supposed to have semi-final play for tennis. That was why we left the lake earlier on Sunday. So we figured the rain would postpone tennis until Monday, but we had it hanging over our heads for hours. Then finally, the rain stopped for about 1.5 hours, so they made it go out there (30 minutes away) and stand there for 15 minutes before deciding that it was definitely going to rain again and we could go home. So I spent 1.25 hours away from my family just driving and waiting for nothing on Mother's Day. Not the way I wanted to spent the afternoon. Ugh!
The night did end well, but hubs and I were so into playing with the kids in our new playroom, that we missed planning dinner. So we didn't get a special dinner, just spaghetti. But I did get a wonderful back massage from hubs after bending over all weekend with Junior Junior.
I hope all the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day! Did you do anything special?
