It's Mother's Day, and i wish a very happy day to all the Mothers out there. Several of us, but not the whole family because some have to work, will be having a Mother's Day lunch with Grandma and Grandpa. After lunch we will go to Grandma and Grandpa's house and help them move stuff out of the rooms so new flooring can be installed. That's what you do when you love your family, especially the matriarch of the family, you spend your Sunday afternoon nap time emptying furniture.
