annual "Happy Mother's Day xoxo" text from L. I texted back "Is this really all I'll get for Mother's Day from now on?" Then I forwarded the conversation to her dad. Seriously! She could at least send a card or call, even M did that. I'm sure she'll waste no opportunity to tell me that it's because my mother and I don't talk. Well, that's kind of the point, isn't it? We don't talk and L & I do. L is included in our lives and I am not included in my mother's life. I think I got a "Happy Birthday" text from L too, now that I think of it. Somehow she's taken husband out to lunch on his B-Day the past two years, though.
