Mother's Day 2011

This will be the first Mother's Day that both of our mother's are gone.  My mom died in 1990, and the Mr.'s mom died in January.  For the last 20 years, we have taken a brunch down to Mom E., planted flowers for her, and sometimes taken her for a drive.

It would be strange being at home this year, but the Mr. just getting out of the hospital makes it seem normal.  I think chicken salad sandwiches and fruit salad are on the menu.  Since the Mr. does the cooking about 320 days a year, I think I can handle one Sunday dinner.  You might notice how ambitious that menu is;  my guess is that he will recover a lot quicker if he has to keep eating my cooking.

We will probably see both girls this afternoon.  We haven't made any definite plans.  They knew Dad wasn't going to be up to much, and they both have had rather full weekends, too.

This will be a relaxing Mother's Day.  I could use that after the last couple of weeks.  I plan to enjoy a beautiful day!  (I might even sneak a walk or a bike ride in there!)

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms out there!

I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful, and that the Mr. is feeling much better now!
