Maybe she didn't want to celebrate. Maybe she was just offering an alternative option of a dinner cooked by someone else, with the addition of drinks. Maybe LOTS of drinks.
I tend to stay off of Facebook on Mother's Day. I haven't had a chance to be home with the kids on this day since we moved. Until we move back, I'm just not in the mood to see all the "Mom" stuff.
Speaking of Facebook, WHY do people have to attack others when they're there? I had posted the same "Gap Year" comment there as I had posted here
. Next, I'm getting attacked by a real, published, well-known author whom I "friended" way back when celebrities didn't have "Like" pages. I had met him once, decades ago, and thoroughly enjoyed his books. However, I was aware of his political leanings (as in, so far from any viewpoint I might hold he would fall over on that side if I were to gently blow his way...) and therefore do not have his personal comments appear in my news feed. I guess he still sees my few "Status Update" posts in his feed, however. Before I know it, I'm reading words that would make my Mother blush
, and she was a good one at swearing. I did reply, with a measured tone and civility. Back with the attacks on his part. Again, I reply politely. Finally, I had enough. I told him he need not reply again; I was considering my thread "closed". So far, he hasn't bothered to challenge that. If he did, I'd just delete his post.
I enjoy using FB for its social connection aspect. As far as politics or modern social issues? On FB, I have no opinion.
