I totally forgot it was Mother’s Day this coming Sunday. Actually, I did remember a week or two ago when I got my own mother a card. I put the card on a shelf all proud for remembering so early, and then left it there. Lights and buzzers didn’t go off in my head until yesterday afternoon so my mother, who lives across the country from me, will probably get her card on Monday rather than Saturday! Yikes!
Our oldest son e-mailed Wednesday to say that he and some friends were going camping this weekend to celebrate the end of the college year. He probably forgot it was Mother’s Day too. Of course I said ‘no problem’ because as I said, I forgot. My husband also totally forgot. He didn’t even get his mother a card, but he’s exempt since he was away on business. Double yikes!
