Mother's Day

What is everyone here doing for Mothers day this weekend?

I'm driving back home tomorrow afternoon to give a surprise visit to my Mom who lives 4 hours away. I'll spend the day with her and cook her breakfast. I moved from my hometown in January so she'll be happy, she's only seen me a couple of times since. I'm not sure if I should tell her or not, I want her to be home lol. I'll be spending the night at a friends house on Saturday and surprising her first thing Sunday morning.

LOL understood, Suzi!!

That sounds great, GB. I'm sure they will appreciate it!

Although, it brings up an important point as well. Why should it be a special ordeal for a wife to have a day off from the kids :p lol Should be whenever she wants!

Actually I offer that to her all the time, but she never wants it. The movie is more for her mom as she never takes any downtime dealing with a sick husband and son. DW is dragging her away for the afternoon forcing her to relax a bit

Make her a nice brunch in the kitchen with your homemade chocolate as dessert, and do all the cleanup. She'll appreciate it! Spend the day with her just relaxing and talking, or go out and do something together.

Well that sounds great, GB. I'm sorry to hear that your wife's father is sick. I'll pray for him and the family.
