I lieu of the normal - "I'm so upset and depressed, and other Mothers were honored and I was not on the " Annual Day of Forgetfulness" We had sort of agreed to try going out and buying ourselves a gift ranging from $5.00 to $20.00 today and meeting back here to see what we had come up with to make the day a little happier, lighter, and more festive. Not necesarily Fiesta Cat festive - but keeping in mind that our children are who and what they are, they are alive, they are for the most part healthy, and we are after all - Mothers. Ours is a thankless job most days, and we as Mother's of difficult child's don't reap the typical rewards of Motherhood - so it can be trying, kind of lonely, and for some isolated and even a bit enivious if you let it. But fear not - TODAY a larger group than you know had understanding and forsight to forsee the possibility you may be feel unappreciated by your offspring - HOWEVER - you ARE appreciated and cherished and acknowledged by your BOARD SISTERS - and I hope you took that blasted money and went out and did something for yourself today and I hope you come back here and post about it and let us know just what you did for yerssef' because LADIES? I gotta tell ya - I got myself a bottle of DOVE bath soap - for $5.98 - I did NOT use a coupon, I felt bad, not like (bad dirty bad) but BAD - for spending the money - AND as I checked out feeling like THIS IS A GOOD PRESENT - and walked out of that WALMART with my gift - this was something I've been wanting to try but wouldn't waste the money on myself and it FEELS GOOD. it was between this - and the Mrs. Smith Peach Cobbler.....(but the sugar you know) SO I GOT THE SOAP - lasts longer too - I mean well, I couldn't completely abandon my Momsense----I'll have this longer. SOooooooo I want to know - WHAT DID YOU DO FOR YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU KNEW YOUR ONLY PRESENT WAS A PICTURE OF YOUR GRAND DOG MADE OUT OF ARBYS CURLY FRIES????? lol - I mean that was great and all - but holy hell.
