back to mother's day: marketing is everywhere. BUY. FLOWERS. LOVE. CARDS. CANDY. HUGS. it's like valentine's day but in pastels.
even worse than the leading up is the actual day itself. [scoff] typical. i mean come on holiday couldn't you at least try to be original??
why is day of the worst ? because EVERYONE and THING is telling you to call your mom. including my email. the sounds and sites of the day are like this: call your mom. call your mom. call your mom. call your mom. call your mom. and i'm like. "ignore." "huh? oh n/a ignore." "sigh. i can't. sniffle" "back off. i can't!" and finally "she's dead!!" and then it just gets awkward.
i even ditched out on church completely yesterday to avoid it. church LOVES to make a big deal out of mother's day. i went to visalia to visit my brother and his kids instead. i arrived just as they were returning from church. (woot!) i asked my niece Chelsea what they did at church. (side note about this family, their mom basically abandoned them a few years ago.) Chelsea excitedly described how they made flowers for their mom's out of cookies and candy. then she said, "I was going to bring it home but then I ate it."
i laughed and gave her a high five. she's one smart cookie.
the worst part? there is now something glen beck and i agree on. DAMN YOU GLEN BECK. damn you.
but seriously mom. i love you and i miss you.
