Mother's Day is this coming Sunday. It can be a hard day for women who wanted to be mothers and aren't. I have learned that hibernation is often the best way to deal with the day. So many people wish "Happy Mother's Day" to every female that has reached child bearing age. I guess they figure it's safer that way. They don't mean to hurt those of us who aren't mothers, but it can hurt quite a bit. I had thought this year that I might go to the gym - safe enough really. But, just a few minutes ago here at work, someone wished everyone in our office a Happy Mother's Day - then came back and asked me "Kate, do you have kids?" Now, I sit here, ready to cry. Unable to finish the banana I just started, unable to think about much else but hibernating on Sunday. If I venture out - I may not have any issues. I may be in a mental frame of mind ready to deal with anything - but I know it's safer to plan for the worst. I have a lot of knitting to do and the house could use a cleaning, so I think that's where I'll be.
