Mother's Day is a Knife in my Heart

For some very stupid reason,  at Easter, I mentioned to one of my AD about visiting me on Mother's Day. No reply, no promise, no talk about it, but dang me, I got slightly hopeful anyway. I just found out she is visiting a friend in another state next weekend. I was upset and then I realized how tense it would be to have her visiting me & staying in my house, baiting me or my husband, playing mean jokes -- all things she has done in the last 4 years. She's just flat out mean. Three of my AD ignore Mother's Day, I do have one good AD. My in-laws are just horrible people and we saw the entire family last weekend and it was terrible, mean comments from a BIL, everyone hates each other, a big family argument going on, their mom high on prescription drugs, its awful and my husband feels so, too. I do not want to do Mother's Day with his family. I told him this as we left the family event last weekend and he said him neither. So I am already upset that Mother's Day is coming and it is not a happy day and I'll be ignored again. I am projecting and making this a catastrophe in advance. Need a pep talk and a kick in the butt.

You have a whole week to plan the absolute best Mother's Day in the world for yourself!!  Do not let your ADs make the day a flop!  Plan now to do something that you have put off for a long time because you had children.  Go do it!!  Even if it is out of town! You deserve itEnjoy!!!
