It’s Free Therapy Day courtesy of Kmama at The Daily Dribbles !!

The way it works is that you take out all your frustrations on people/things-whatever- that really irritated or ticked you off during the week and then thank them in a very sarcastic way. (I sooo love the sarcastic part!)

Link yourself up and start venting!

-to the styrofoam coffee cup that was full of hot coffee mixed just the way I like it, that buckled under the process of me putting the lid on and spilled all over me, the counter, and the floor RIGHT NEXT TO A NICE ELDERLY COUPLE eating their breakfast- thank you very much! I love scenes!

-to the unseasonably cold weather IN MAY that we’re encountering on our road trip back to New York after having spent a nice warm spring in Texas- thank you very much! Freezing is my favorite!

-to the waitress at dinner the other night who barely noticed we were alive and breathing but paid a ginormous amount of attention to the guy behind us-thank you very much! Hopefully our tip reflected our gratitude!

And to top it all off…

to my ex who didn’t have my WS2 available for my Sunday night call even though it’s court ordered AND it was Mother’s Day-THANK YOU OH SO FREEEAAAKIN’ MUCH!! You’re waaay too kind!

“Oh nooo!!  Your tire’s all flat and junk.  Oh, did I do that?  Here.  Let me get my cellular out…call you a wrecker… Oh shoot, I got no phone. `Cause I’m a pothole…Soooo…..K bye!”-Geico commercial

Just between you and me

Just between you and me, I’m soooo glad that Mother’s Day is over. I love Mother’s Day for my mother. I can “officially”  tell her how much I love her and miss her, what a great mom she is, and that she’s my all time best friend EVER.

But Mother’s Day for me?  Hmmm, not so much.

When you have two teenage boys that live with their very bitter towards me father and stepmother, you really can’t expect too much. But what is considered “too much”?

Since Mother’s Day is on a Sunday and that’s “my night” to call, I was feeling pretty confident that I’d get a sweet “Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!” from my younger son-WS2. (I knew better than to expect anything from my older son who’s almost 19 and thinks he doesn’t need a mother in his life right now. If I had heard from him you would’ve heard me scream with joy from the mountain tops. And I do mean that literally.)

I know that some, ok most…, Sundays I don’t get an answer when I call WS2, but I thought maybe, just maybe, since it was Mother’s Day he’d be sure to answer. I called at my usual scheduled time with no answer (but a very generic voicemail-much different that the personal message I usually hear.)  I called again 15 minutes later and again no answer.

Since it was Mother’s Day and he had missed my call, I just thought for sure that he’d call me back and I’d get to hear his sweet voice on my special day.  My phone didn’t ring. In fact, the only sound I heard was the breaking of my heart.

I don’t know the situation at their house, so I don’t know if it was WS2’s choice not to answer or call back, OR if it was arranged so that he wouldn’t hear my call and then be given a list of things to keep him busy right up until bedtime. (I say this because it has happened before-you know the ol’ clean-your-room-tonight-or-you-can’t-play-tomorrow-oops-now-it’s-time-for-bed routine.)

After I picked myself up and put my big girl panties on, I was reminded of a few things:

First, you can’t control or change people. I don’t want to control or change WS2, I just wish he acted differently sometimes. If it wasn’t his choice to talk to me, then I wish he’d stand up and do whatever it takes to get to me.

And, just because you think things should be a certain way in life, doesn’t mean they will actually turn out that way.  I always thought the boys and I would be close. And I never in a million years thought things would turn out the way they have. But they have turned out this way and now I’m having to accept that this is my reality.

And finally, I have so many people who love and care for me.  Knowing that I have their love and support means the world to me.

Keeping these things in mind has helped me feel better now…. at least until next Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Getting to Know You Sunday, except it’s Saturday…

Keely  over at MannLand5 decided to do “Getting To Know You Sunday” today since tomorrow is Mother’s Day!!  So here goes…

The questions..
1. What has been your most memorable Mother’s Day? (with your mom, as a mom, or as a wife)
I would probably have to say this year’s Mother’s Day, even though it hasn’t happened yet. Since hubby and I are heading back to NY on Sunday, I went to visit my mom for a couple days this past Thursday. Even though my visit was short on time, it was big on awesome! We spent as much time doing things together, or at least in the same room, as we could. On Friday, we had the whole day to just do mother/daughter things. We did a little shopping and then had a nice lunch. It wasn’t anything spectacular or out of the ordinary, but we had a great time just talking and being together. I feel closer to her because of it. And who doesn’t like being close with their mom??!?

2. Have you ever been pulled over for speeding and were you able to talk your way out of it?
Yes!! It was awesome too!  I was hurrying to get more formula to WS1’s babysitter (about 18 yrs ago?). When I explained why I was speeding (because, you know… they ALWAYS ask why), he checked my license and insurance, then sent me on my way. As soon as he was out of sight, I was back to speeding. My baa-by was HUNGRY!

3. What’s the oldest thing you have hanging in your closet?
In my Texas closet I have some capri’s from last summer. In my NY closet I have a sweater that belonged to my dad many, many years ago. I won’t take it out because I love the memories I have when I see it.

4. Do you whiten your teeth?
I have in the past. Having it done in a dental office is the fastest and easiest way to go!

5. Underwear or Panties-what do you call it?
Most of the time I call it underwear, but I do remember referring to them as panties when I was little.

6. If you could go on vacation right now..today..where would you go?
Antigua (hurry up August 5th!)

7. Do you get offended when people cuss on their blogs?
No, not really, but I’m not a fan of the continuous, hard-core ranting type.

8. If you had to give up one luxury item, it would be….?
Probably TV since I don’t watch that much of it except for baseball games. Besides, I can get my Yankees on MLB.com!

Head over to Mannland5 if you want to play along!

Happy Mother’s Day!
