Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are moms or mothers to people other than their family.
As you might guess, I am not a huge fan of this day. It took a few years to get Kevin's family to stop giving what I saw as condolences gifts. They did it so I wouldn't feel bad, their hearts in the right place, but it unfortunately did just that.
All in all, I get a free pass on this holiday. We spent time with my mom and had dinner next door with the fam. Otherwise, I spent the day quietly, reading and hanging out with Kev.
Kevin is pretty cool about the whole thing. He woke me up with a "Happy You Get Nothing Day", starting the day with laughter instead of disappointment. He followed it up with a FB status update of "Happy You're Not a Mother Day to my wife", which made me & our friends laugh.
I hope you spent the day with whomever you consider your family, surrounded by love.
