Just a little itty bitty teeny vent.
Mother has called several times in the last little while, and I haven't returned her calls. I just can't deal with her nonsense right now.
So she sent me an email. I rolled my eyes so much reading it, I think I sprained something.
It starts off with a whole bunch of sappy sentimental stuff, which for her, means she wants something. The big question is what?
She goes on to say, "I'm sensing that you are very tired and just dealing with work" supposedly referring to the fact that I haven't answered her yet. Ooookay. Sure. If you say so.
Then she starts talking about a trip she wants us all to take. The latest news is that Oldest Bro has apparently told her NO WAY. Wow. So his wife finally put her foot down, huh?
She says "I am wondering too if you are thinking you don't have the energy to do such a trip. Please express your feelings on this because you know that your old mom wants only to do what is in everyone's best interests!"
Yeah. Right. The last
time I told her I wasn't going, she threw a hissy fit. That's one of the major reasons I'm not returning her calls. But she has conveniently forgotten that.
This time, I'm emailing her a NO. That way I have a paper copy if her memory gives out again.
