Mother's Day sneak attack!

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, and ... screw that.

Today we told the kids we needed to go into town and run errands. It was almost 2:00 pm. We had not yet eaten lunch. We pulled into one of my favorite local restaurants.

Michael: "Okay, this is our special Mother's Day lunch with Mom!"

BOOM! Outside of some incessant chatter, I had a lovely meal in a quiet and slightly empty restaurant. Plenty of attention from the waiter. Cut out the pre-game ruin-Mother's-Day stuff which would have happened today and in the morning.

Me: "Guys, thank you sooo much. This was great. Happy Mother's Day to me!"

Done, and done.
