What do I want for Mother Day? The same thing I wish for every year–a day without my family.

Don’t get me wrong. I love my husband and daughter. They are great. But does Mother’s Day scream a new diamond necklace to me? No–because last I checked, my husband was not my son, so he’s off the hook as far as buying me a gift (no matter what Kay Jewelers and Jane Seymour would like us all to think).

Nope. I just want to leave the house and not come back ALL DAY. And I don’t want to check in either and see what the other half is up to. Nope. I want to just get my car and go do whatever the heck I feel like doin’.

Is that so wrong?
