So in a totally last minute decision today I decided to surprise my mother for her birthday. I live in San Diego and she lives in NY. She turns 50 on April 25 and my brother turns 25 on April 30. My siblings have planned a spa and brunch day for all of them besides me since I live on the west coast for April 28. My mother is going to get a FULL shebang treatment and we are all pitching in.
This week we found out my mother had to have a biopsy. totally freaked us out. we think its just endometriosis (sp?) that just reached her womb but still kinda scary since we don't have the results yet. But it made me want to be with her on their shared birthday celebration instead of just pitching in.
So I got together with my siblings and we are all in it together. my little sister is going to pick me up. My twin is going to get my mom out of the house and my brother is going to let me in the house so I can be there to say surprise. She is going to be so happy. My siblings are so happy I am doing this. We haven't spent mom's and brother's birthday together since I went away to college in fall 95.
I can't wait to see her face when I surprise her.
So we decided to go even farther. My mom is going to my twin's house the night before I get there sooo my little sister and brother are going to decorate the house and get a cake and my twin is going to make sure she doesn't bring my mom back until right after I get there so the three of us and my twin can go SURPRISE!! ahhh the joy of the electronic age where we can make sure we can text her to let her know when I land. I'm so excited. I talked to her today and she has no idea!!!
