you know you're old when ...

Several days ago Dan asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day. And I replied with "absolutely nothing ... having you and Porter and Sherman in my life is gift enough". Ok, so I didn't say that. But I did say "absolutely nothing" mainly because I am hoping that takes some of the sting away when he sees my upcoming Target credit card statement (retail therapy, people. it's a real thing).

So anyway, Dan asked me what I wanted and at first I said nothing. But then I thought of something (what woman doesn't think of something eventually). All I wanted for Mother's Day {weekend} was to go out to the arboretum with my little family and take a long walk in the woods and look at trees and flowers. So that's what we did. This morning.

And that, my friends, is how you know you're getting old.
Not to mention the fact that I'm blogging on a Friday night.

I hope you all have a great Mother's Day weekend!
Pet moms included. Totally included.
