Kicking and Screaming

Let me be clear. I am not celebrating anything today. I am just going to be. All that Mother's Day stuff sort of rubs me the wrong way. Am I any less a wonderful person because I am not a mother? This holiday is overdone and still feels sort of stupid to me. I feel like I am mother to two wonderful Danes. That is sort of being a mother. The whole pregnancy thing is just too new to me, and I it is hard for me to get excited about it, just yet. I am sure I will at some point. Just not yet.

My big plans for the day: go grocery shopping and take our dogs to the dog park. Other than that I am hiding. Maybe I will try to meditate today. I could probably use it because I skipped meeting today. I just knew someone would make a comment about mothers, which would annoy the crap out of me. So I am going to spend the day with Hubby, and try to not do much of anything. Sounds like heaven to me.

Things I can be grateful for:
  • It is a beautiful sunny day.
  • I get to spend the day with Hubby
  • I am pregnant today

Haha....I just posted about how ridiculous I think this day is...I've since dubbed it Women's Day: So have a Beautiful Women's Day!

I'm taking my dog to the park too - I feel like his mother, so I know what you mean about the Danes! Whatever you're mothering, it ought to count!
