feast or famine on Mother's Day

Saturday, May 08, 2004

This will be Mother's Day #24 for me. #25 if I count being pregnant. #40 something if I count my tributes to my own mother.

I've gradually grown to expect less and less on Mother's Day...and enjoy the day more and more. If I see the boys, great. If not, I'll catch 'em later. Expectations are pre-meditated resentments, so I am much better off without them (the expectations that is...not the boys).

I used to expect others to make me dinner, even though I enjoy cooking. I've smartened up. Tomorrow I am making Nepalese vege dish. I've purchased a basil pasta salad as a side dish.

My youngest plans on making me breakfast...so he tells me. However, since I get up at 4:00 am and he normally gets up at 11:00 am, this may be a problem. I may have to eat 2 breakfast-essss.
