Mother's Day

Diem,

Busy day for me - Spent hours emptying the pantry out and rearranging everything in some semblance of order. I don't know the last time the pantry was ever actually organized like that... Maybe when we moved into the house and first put food in it??? But my mom was Not Happy with how messy it had gotten and it's a day for her so I fixed it up. My sister and I also got her a cat-themed card, because obviously I had to throw in cats somewhere.

We got her her favorite sub and wine for dinner and just hung out with her and had a nice time teasing my sister about her whole selfie ~process~ - All in good fun, of course. We show affection through just absolutely roasting each other

Jokes about cats and selfies aside, I really do appreciate my mother. She's been raising my sister and I by herself since we were 13 and 10, and I know it definitely hasn't been easy for her, but she's a great mom. She's super resilient, and has a good idea of what her worth is, which she made sure to pass onto us. She made sure we turned out to be good people, and made sure we always knew we were supported with who we turned out to be. She let us make our own choices/mistakes, with the knowledge that she'd be there afterwards if it went wrong. There's a lot I could say about her, but mostly I think I'm just super grateful I ended up with a mom as good as she is. Even if she has repeatedly accidentally insulted herself by trying to use "Your mom" jokes against me

I really hope she enjoyed her Mother's Day
