Mother's Day Sucked

Ugh...sometimes I hate these holidays.  I should say that I am not one that is super big on celebrating some of these holidays.  I love the message of Christmas and I cannot pass up Thanksgiving or Halloween, and Easter is a wonderful time but my birthday, mothers day, valentines day and any other over-publicized "holidays" are not necessarily part of my life.  Sure I like getting gifts and being recognized, but I don't need another necklace.

So with that said, this past week, my hubby asked what I want for mother's day.  I said a family vacation! I have already picked out our destination (Disneyland!) and dates (Aprilish!) and I am already trying to put money away for this super awesome trip!  With that request I knew that there would be no crappy flowers, candy or unnecessary gift.  I did however expect a card, a "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment, or even dinner made.  Did I get that...nope not really.

What did I get?  An argument over who gets to sleep in and an extreme feeling of under-appreciation.  My son was super cute and had a great attitude, and even took two (yes 2!) naps yesterday and started to "clean" the living room and tell me "mommy, I love you!"  The hubby did try to make up yesterday and took me to get ice cream but still I feel a little cheated, a little under appreciated and a little sad.

I am sure much of this is my fault since I am so low-key on the holiday front, but we have been together 11 years!  11 freaking years!  Shouldn't he know by now that a card and simple overstated sentiment would have just made my whole day?

My husband really is not some terrible husband, he is great and is an incredible parent.  I have to place the blame on myself for this one.  I think I have learned my lesson if I want at least a card I need to state that I need a beautiful card!
