Good morning all! Now that yesterday's session is over (I'm not minimizing, Sub, I just really didn't want to get involved), I'm going to post my thoughts here since I still consider you guys my safe place.

Today is Mother's Day and I am very grateful for my boys and that my Mom is coming to visit on Wednesday. I really have nothin to complain about. One of my good friends lost her mom on Friday. Her mom has had Alzheimer's for several years and lived in England, so it has been very difficult on her. My heart goes out to her that she is going through this and being bombarded with the Mother's Day blitz at the same time.

For some reason this year I am also very aware of the mothers who have lost their children too soon. Last week another good friend's sister confided to us that she was pregnant while we were at Ry's soccer game (same circle of friends). On Tuesday she miscarried.

I am really dreading seeing my MIL today. She is still very much grieving (understandably) and is probably depressed and should see a therapist, but she would never consider that. She didn't even want us over today, so we are gathering at my SIL's for dinner. I would be ok with staying home, but then we would be accused of ignoring her (no win situation).

Anyway, didn't mean to start the day off on such a down note, but you can see why I can't post something like this on my public page. Thank you for letting me get this out.

For those of you celebrating today - Happy Mother's Day! For those who are child free by choice - enjoy! For those who can't be with the ones you love - you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jess, I hope your time with your MIL goes better than you imagine today.

On Friday night when Angela and I were having dinner, we were talking about all the Regs (of course) and about you she said that your husband hit the wife lottery. That's a quote.:)

Enjoy your boys today and your own mom's visit this week. Happy Mother's Day!

<3 I am keeping positive thoughts that your day goes better than you expect. It's totally understandable that your MIL is still grieving, and I am sorry to hear about your friend's miscarriage. Enjoy your boys today. You are like Supermom for real so you deserve a nice day.

It is Mother's Day. I hope you all have a good day. I'm planning on working outside planting things and cleaning up. To me, that's fun. We'll probably go out to dinner later.

Mimi -- your son lives in your heart and is still in everyone's thoughts. You deserve a special happy Mother's Day. I hope you take that in the good spirit I mean for it to be taken. Your niece and sister are very lucky to have you.

Scarlett -- I can't remember (sorry) what loss your MIL went through. I hope she can see what gifts she has having you and your husband and your boys in her life. Sometimes, realizing what you have is all that is needed.

JMW and Red -- have a mimosa for me b/c that sounds good about now!:)

You are a mom, too, both to Chris, whom we all remember , but you read like a Momma-Bear for the west coast contingent.

I am raising a virtual Mimosa to you.(clink, sip)

So I saw my mother today for the first time in several months. She tells me her husband wants a divorce. Good riddance, we all think he's a jerk anyway. Told her to lawyer up and make sure her assets are protected and that she's taken care of financially, but gee, such happy mother's day news!

Having been married to a class-a jerk, I can tell you that it might just be a good mother's day gift for you mom to 1) be rid of him and 2) knowing you've got her back.

Pelly, Toj, thanks for the MD wishes. I'm just trying to lay low today. It's been a bad couple weeks (emotionally) for me and as it gets closer to Wednesday, I don't see it getting any better. Don't feel bad for me, I'll get by, just in a funk right now.

On the upside (I found out today because I didn't check the mail yesterday) I got accepted into (another) a grad program that they turned me down for initially because I don't have all the foreign language BS they want. I asked them to reconsider, and they did. So yay! Although that means new school (still UW, just a different location), getting to know how it all works, blah, blah, blah. <sigh>
