However, I am getting something else for Mother's day too. Four whole days by myself.
This comes, not actually as a gift, but as a mandatory doctor's order... but I am choosing to have some fun with it and consider it a vacation!
On Thursday I am having Radioactive Iodine treatment for my Graves disease, or hyperthyroidism. After I swallow the radioactive meds, I myself will be radioactive for several days. They said that the dosage is actually really low, but it is safer for children to not be around. No one is supposed to be within three feet of me, but it is safer for the kids to just not be around at all - because really, what are the chances of my kids remembering to stay three feet away for 3-4 days?
The research I did on the internet said I would actually be radioactive enough to set off security alarms in the airport! Fun times. Andy said he would be willing to stay, and even risk the three feet radius, since he worked on planes that he can guarantee had more radiation then my meds have! I laughed, and told him he would be welcome, but someone has to take care of our children.
So, I get Thur-Sun to myself. I keep saying I am going to clean out the closets and get rid of things while they are gone, but if I'm not careful I will spend the entire time on here, or lost in a book.
I'll keep you posted!
Thankfully, I get my family back on Mother's day. I think they will wait til the evening, just to be safe, but by that fourth day, I will be having some major missing pangs going on!
What are your Mother's Day plans? Do tell....
