Today is one of those days I have mixed emotions about. Most of them have to do with hiding from anything proclaiming anything about Mother's Day and waiting it out until tomorrow, when I'm safe from all the commotion for until next year.
It's also my mother's birthday today. This only complicates my feelings for today.
On the plus side, Ace is wonderful. He is fine with me ignoring that it's Mother's Day. He's fine with buying me chocolate/sweets/whatever and letting me hide away from the world. He understands why I flinch, mentally, at the reminders.
I hope that if you are a mother, you have a wonderful day. Don't let my issues with the day ruin your day. Celebrate. Take a day off or spend it with your children or celebrate however you want.
As for me, I think I'll spend part of the day eating the Swedish Fish Ace bought for me. He really is the best husband ever.
And hiding. Because avoiding the reminders is better than flinching all day.
