Send my mom and sister both a gift card to their favorite places. Send my mil a nice card.
Then I realized that I did not send my mil anything in her card. Not a good thing. So I will be sending her a nice card from the grandchildren with a gift card for her. lol I was so proud of having it all done early too...
I just had my birthday yesterday and mothers day is coming up. Cards are nice, presents are OK, but what I want most is what I did not get yesterday. I want a phone call from my youngest son to say "I Love You." I had dinner with my oldest son, my daughter from out of state called. Yet the day was not complete because my son never calls. So....the best present is not a present but your prescence.
As usual, I will probably get nada. My birthday, anniversary, both kids birthdays all fall within 2 weeks of each other, so I think my husband gets overwhelmed. Oh well, I am used to it. If there is something I really want, I will just buy it myself. I kind of gave DH an out this year by begging him to let us adopt a Shiba Inu....he was on the fence about it, and I told him that it could count as my birthday/anniversary/mother's day present. I love the new doggie, and he doesn't "dislike" him, which is good enough for me.
I will take both my Mom and Mother in law out for a nice Mother's Day lunch, as well as send flowers. My Mom lives in Arizona, but will be coming out to visit in a couple of weeks, so I will take her out then, and also let her pick out something for her horse.
