I don't go in much for Hallmark holidays -- the ones that everyone feels obliged to celebrate. I am tempted sometimes to play my "Mother's Day cards" to get the men in my life to give me the princess treatment, but resist. I put all my cards in on my birthday -- the day that's uniquely mine. If you call me on January 31 I'll probably answer the phone "Birthday Girl Speaking" since it makes me smile and takes everyone off guard.
