For the record, I don’t enjoy all the hoohaa around Valentine’s, Mothers’ Day etc etc etc. I don’t mind buying a gift for hubby on Fathers’ Day and making a fuss, but there is no time to go the whole hog at the moment.
But I got a little annoyed tonight.
My Mom is away at the moment (story for another post), so we’ll probably spend the day with my In-Laws. In itself not a problem. But DH and I had a rather terse conversation tonight about what to do. I made a roundabout suggestion that we should maybe go out for lunch on Sunday, which was met with a grunt.
So I came right out and said that I don’t feel like cooking on Mothers’ Day. There. Done. Which he won’t expect me to do, but you always end up making a salad, or dessert, or quickly peeling potatoes, or setting the table. I really just feel like getting in the car, driving down to the frigging Spur or whatever, eating food I didn’t help cook, dirtying dishes I don’t have to pack away and getting my drink poured and not have to do anything for anyone else.
Is that ok or am I being selfish?
What do you normally do on Mothers’ Day, if anything?
