I can't help but do one of those sort of cloying posts telling you how great I was treated on Mother's Day. First, I was able to sleep in until 8 or so, which I needed. Handsome Lad brought me a breakfast in bed of waffles, fruit, and orange juice. (Note: I did find out later, when I opened the microwave, that he had apparently attempted scrambled eggs...not a great idea in the micro unless you really know how to break up those yolks...) After breakfast, I tidied up the livingroom, while Girlie Girl kindly did the bathroom and the kitchen, and did a very good job of them too. About 1, some of the family came over for a Mother's Day lunch. We just did nice sandwiches, with a fruit salad, veggies and dip, and chips. It was just my mom, my sister and nephew, all the kids, including Kick Back Dude and his gang, plus my dad and step-mom. I invited my ex-MIL too, but she was in a funk and didn't want to come out. Secret Agent Man had cleaned up the backyard really good so that we could eat out there, plus he washed my very dusty car. Social Animal was sort of out of the loop, but I forgave him since he was recovering from Prom Night.
Anyway, I got flowers, a $50 American Express Card, a AMC theater card, a Starbucks card, and the promise that I will be getting new brakes put on my car ASAP. The best thing though, was the way the kids helped out to make the day nice.
In the evening I went to the movies with my sister, Girlie Girl, and Princess Diva. We wanted to go to the cheap theater so our choices were somewhat limited. We ended up going to see Next. It hasn't gotten very good reviews, but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. I mean, it wasn't art or anything, but it was cool. I have this little thing, too, for Nicholas Cage. He isn't classically handsome or anything like that, but he has this certain intensity that I find appealing. Sure, he gets points off for naming his child Kal-el, but celebrities seem compelled to do that to their progeny.
Anyway, that was my very nice Mother's Day. Thank you for reading :-)
