My little sister and husband are sitting on my parents living room floor playing Mario Bros. (old school Mario, on a Super Nintendo). My sister is laughing SOO HARD I think she may pee her pants (and it wouldn't be the first time)! I've never heard someone snort like that either! My husband is trying his best not to swear when he falls down a hole or runs into a monster. Now they're calling gas "fire power". Holy crap...it stinks! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
We went out for dinner tonight for mother's day. Only one sister and BIL was missing. It was nice. I guess the good thing, if there is a good thing about not having babies, is there's no one else in my family that has babies either. My oldest sister and her husband do not WANT kids. How could you NOT want kids? Well they don't, and they plan on making it a permanent fix by the end of the year. She is 34. It breaks my heart. I have two little sisters who aren't married, although one lives like she is. No babies. I feel bad for my parents, like they're ready to enter the next chapter into Grandparent land and no one will help them out!
My own mom did wish me happy mother's day, although I don't think I deserve it, as I haven't talked to my step-sons in months. I'm not a very good step-mother.
Trying to focus my mother's day on my mother helps a lot. I try not to think about me being a mother, but the great job my own mother did. She was my best friend for years, until I moved away. I am soo happy to be back in Florida. I have missed my family.
I pray everyone has a blessed mother's day and we all stay relatively tear free on this sad but happy day.
