Hey, there’s another Wedding Week for the books! Thanks to everyone who wrote in, posted in the forums, and commented on columns and threads. Hopefully we helped a few people have happier wedding experiences . . . or at least deal with the drama a little better.
Anyway, as I’m writing this, it’s Friday morning and I would usually be taking Jackson to preschool, but he has a terrible cough and runny nose from allergies and I didn’t want to subject his teachers and classmates to all that, so it’s going to be a Mommy and Jackson day all day today. And I was up all night with various issues, from indigestion to feeling too hot to regular old insomnia, and, when I finally did fall asleep for a few minutes around 3 AM, Miles jumped on my face, all 24 pounds of him, leaving a trail of blood on my forehead that dried in a perfect big dipper constellation pattern, so that’s fun.
Sunday is Mother’s Day, as you know, and I have requested an egg sandwich in bed and a couple hours of peace and quiet. I will also be thinking of my own mom and wishing her a lovely day, and I’ll be sending warm wishes to all you other moms (and moms-to-be!) out there and everyone for whom Mother’s Day isn’t the happiest of occasions, from those who have lost their mothers or are estranged from them to those women who have lost children or whose desired paths to motherhood haven’t come easily. To all the rest of you, I hope you have a wonderful May weekend and get to spend at least some of it with people you like doing stuff you enjoy. Like drinking margaritas if you have any sense.
