These days, alone time isn't so hard to come by. One benefit of having 3 teenagers is built-in babysitters. That would not be my request this year.
What do you want for Mother's Day?
I hear ads for jewelry and think, "Really?" I guess if you had most of the things you need, a pair of earrings would be welcome. My poor husband has to walk the fine line between practical and indulgent. For example, he knows that appliances are pretty much off limits as gifts. I feel like that's a cop out. If I need a toaster, then let's just buy one, don't wrap it up. But, something like a diamond necklace is way too expensive and I'd feel guilty wearing it, thinking about how many pairs of kids' shoes it would buy. Then, the other day, as we were driving, we saw this-
I told him, 'You are so lucky! You could get all your Mother's day shopping done in one place. A gift card, add a 44 oz. diet Coke and a taquito and I'd be set!' Luckily, he laughed with me, so I know he won't be shopping at Maverick. Actually, I'm hoping for some new shoes, or maybe a new body pillow to replace the one I lost. (How do you lose a body pillow? You leave it behind at a hotel. Still not sure how we managed that one. Not like it's a small item, it's as big as a couple of my kids. I've never left any of them behind. Maybe if the pillow could've talked, or whined, then I would've noticed.) I'm pretty easy to please.
But, I'm wondering, what would you like if you could have anything for Mother's Day? If that husband of yours had unlimited resources, what would you ask him for? Mine's a toss-up-

Or, even better, I'd like both!
