Mother's Day

I'm continually reminded that it is Mother's Day "Weekend", which I'm not buying for a couple reasons: my wife gets more than a birthday, she nearly gets a birthweek and beyond, so enough is enough.

The other reason is, she spent half the day cleaning the house so I don't think she's taking her own Mother's Day Weekend seriously. I tried to forbid housecleaning this morning, but was fully dismissed.

So now my son and I have been negotiating wake up time for Mother's Day morning. He wants to get up at 6:30 and start making breakfast. I'm hoping for 7:30. Momma wants it closer to 8:30. I told the boy to come poke me at 7:30, and usually he will stick to a schedule if you give him one. He's worn out, so hopefully I'll be the one waking him up.

So, breakfast, coffee, newspaper in bed. A small gift and thoughtful card from her boy. Then I'll stay out of her hair by doing chores all day. Then a fabulous dinner at Isaacs, a popular Middle Eastern place here in town. That should make for a great Mother's Day weekend for all of us!

Sounds like a nice way to spend the day.

Yum, Isaacs. Say, I haven't had my Mother's Day dinner yet. Hope Lisa had a good one.
