So far 2011 has not been a stellar year. Dad dying, lice, a trip to the ER are some of the big highlights, but even the mundane day to day stuff seems to be kicking my butt. So it was no wonder that I had no idea that Mother's day was only days away when a colleague asked me my plans. I am going to be cooking what will hopefully be a yummy dinner for Hilary, but beyond that we are plan-less.
Since I started this blog in 2008 I've posted a Mother's day post each year, last year going so far as making it a full weeks event. This year I don't have much to say. There are some underlying family issues going on between my Mom and my Grandma which are weighing heavily on my heart. So I give you instead a recap of my past posts:
2008 - A poem that I had written 5 years earlier when I celebrated my first Mother's Day as a Mom
2008 - Contest - I wrote a story about the day my Mom got me and become a Mom for the first time.
2009 - Linda & 2009 - Iris Being adopted can mean remembering Mother's Day twice.
2010 For the week leading up to Mother's Day I wrote a tribute post to all the Mom's that are in my life.
