Home Again

We finally made it home again. Glad to be home, but already missing Chris. We barely beat the storm. Just as we was unloading our stuff it began to rain and snow. That was followed by thunder and lightning. Crazy!!
I am on my mom's shit list. Oh well, it isn't the first time and I am pretty sure it won't be the last. LOL. Maybe some day I will go into the tenuous relationship my mother and I share but I am afraid that only a team of psychiatrists would think it interesting. They would probably write a book about it-LMAO. The rest of society would feel like they were watching a bad car wreck-you don't want to watch, but you can't look away...
This is funny though...She called to make sure we got home and asked me why we were so late. It was 8:30pm. I'm thinking to myself-kinda thought we made good time-considering we usually get back about midnight or so. I told her we got a late start this morning. She didn't say anything for a minute(I think she was trying not to explode) and asked...No, I mean two days late? I had to think about that one for a second. I couldn't help it. I had to say it. I told her I was running on Rez Time.
Kaboom!!!! The screaming commenced. LOL - I knew it would...
I very quietly hung up on her. It's okay. The cats missed us....LMAO.

Relationships with mothers can be challenging for some. I know about that first hand. You need to live our life for you and not for her. If you can do that, you'll be fine. If she can't see that, it's her problem. Good luck with it.

Thanks Mikael - It took a long time to realize that but I have. Now, most of the time, I find her nerosis(sp?) amusing.

Atleast you could hang up. My family never gets on me over the phone. It is harder to walk off with 5 kids and a wife so you just have to listen.

I'm right there with you and my stepmother and her odd neurosis', too. I detest talking with her, so I always hand the phone off to my kids and let them jibber jabber with her.
All she wants to do is complain and gossip and try to pull stuff out of me. It's terribly unpleasant.

But I've been known to hang up the phone on her, too. Feels good. (evil grin)
