Mother’s Day Brunch Prep

Every year at our church we have a Mother’s Day Brunch. It’s a fun morning for us mom’s because all the children and husbands serve us…literally.  We get to sit at our tables and visit while everyone comes up to us offering us coffee, pastries, fruit, and breakfast casseroles and such. It’s nice to be the one who gets to eat first for once ;)

But every year, Josh and I go through the same routine. I make out the grocery list and ask him if he is going to make the sausage egg casserole again, and if so let me know so I can include all of it’s ingredients in my list. Well it’s that time of year again and though I missed church Sunday due to Eden being sick…I was unable to make sure Josh signed up for the breakfast, because there is always a sign up sheet. Somehow, this year, Josh forgot to sign up…maybe it’s because I wasn’t there, I don’t know, but somehow he missed it.

I’ve been working on the grocery list for the past few days ( finished yesterday) and again I inquired about the Brunch. “Did you ask your dad about the sign up sheet?” Josh-, ” Yeah, he said there was one and he doesn’t know how I missed it, but he put my name on the list.” Me-,” Are you going to make that casserole again, because if you are, I need to know so I can make sure you have everything you need to make it.” Josh-,” Would you stop worrying about it.” WHAT THE HECK IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? Does it mean that maybe this year will be a surprise and he has it all under control. Or does it mean, I’ll spring everything on you at last minute? I am so confused. Why can’t I just get a simple answer? I will admit…by last night…I was getting a little naggy about it with him since I had been bugging him about it since possibly Saturday. Maybe he was tired of me pestering him. But C’mon…Sheesh! Anyways…this will be continued as the grocery shopping draws nearer and Mother’s Day is Sunday.   Let’s hope it’s a surprise…because that would be a lot of fun for me :)
