now that i'm a mother, i truly understand why mother's day is so important.
i now rank it as even higher then my own birthday. and it's not that i expect gifts. not at all. i would be happy with no gifts. all i ask is for some peace and quiet. and just an acknowledgment of the work i put into not just as a mother, but wife to my household.
so… as a gift to myself, i'm going to ask that doug take chaeli for a bit so i can go get a manicure. i'm also going to go shopping for myself. i've been meaning to get the 8th season offriends and the 2nd and 3rd volume of 'The Astonishing X-men" graphic novel series.
i do deserve it.
plus, that pitcher of sangria this saturday won't hurt either…
