Mother's Day & Farming

**I've had this post here since Monday but it just wasn't sounding right to me. Well, better late than never I guess.**

Who ever decided mother's day needed to be in May obviously was not a farmers wife.Therefore, I knew we wouldn't be doing anything fun or exciting on mother's day unless it was raining. If it happened to be raining, every piece of equipment had to be in tip top shape or else the day would be spent in the shop.

The weather was gorgeous so I mentally prepared myself that after mass and breakfast with my family Matt was going to be busy. I was hopeful though that he would at least have a card for me.


No card, nothing.

I'm not upset about not getting a gift. I'm not upset about not spending the day together. I'm upset at the lack of acknowledgement of the day.

So when he came in I was folding clothes and I lost it. Tears, blubbering and walking away.

I heard him leave but honestly didn't care where he went. I had laundry to finish before my mom came over for supper (since my dad had to work second shift and my brother wasn't going to be home I didn't want her sitting alone).

I was at the clothesline when he came back with one of those giant cards and a rose. He had that sheepish little boy look on his face and handed me the card. I should have taken a picture of it because  his note in there said thanks for always putting up with me and believing in me. we love you love Chase, Chunky, Zoe, Matt & Reagan.


How do you stay mad at that? He also gave me a rose (because we have 1 kid) and $25 to Olive Garden that way when Reagan and I are shopping we can go out to dinner.

Ugh he frustrates me, ticks me off and then goes and does something like that.

I do think though that he understood my frustration as to why I was mad. He got it and he made up for it.

As much as he frustrates me, drives me insane I love him.


  1. You know, it's not that they don't appreciate us. It's that they are just not wired to plan and pamper and surprise! At least that's what I keep telling myself. :) I've learned the hard way that I need to sit down with Chad before events such as my birthday and Mother's Day and FULLY outline my expectations/hopes for the day. Every time. :)

  2. I asked Dr.Oloye to cast a twin spell. I have fertility problems and have been trying for almost 2 years. I began to give up hope. I came across Dr.Oloye and thought it was worth a shot. I was a bit sceptical at first but ordered a triple cast, so it didn't exactly break the bank and I decided to ask her for help. I wasn't sure what the outcome would be but within a few days I received a letter with a spell and a charm. I did what the instructions said. I had a scan last week and I'm 9 weeks pregnant with twins. I cannot believe it. I want to say a huge thank you. I often emailed for advice and Dr.Oloye always replied with a straight answer. They are my miracle babies.You have nothing to lose with her and we would highly recommend her work
