So yesterday was a crappy day

I had a HUGE fight with my mother.  I mean, HUGE.  I said things to her I now wish I could take back but at the time, I was so hurt and angry, the words just flew out of my big mouth.

She rejected me again.

She does this on a regular basis….she’ll call me and tell me “Don’t come over” without any real reason and here I sit, wondering if I have done something.  Sometimes she’ll tell me she’s sick, but I don’t know for sure if she is or not.

What brought this on, is that we ordered a lot of clothes for me from QVC.  When we figured out the total it was over $200 and I told her, “We can cancel some of them, that’s a lot of money” but she REFUSED.

Until yesterday when the clothes got to her house from the UPS man.

She said I could have one outfit but that she wasn’t sure what she was going to do with the rest of the outfits, and to please stay away for TWO WEEKS.

Okay, that’s BS.

If someone is MAD at me, tell me, yell at me, and get over it.  Don’t throw me away like a piece of garbage.

She doesn’t know how to handle anger.  HELLO, you’re 72 years old, if you don’t know yet how to handle anger, I don’t think your ever going to learn!

I have put up with this for nearly three years (since she’s moved here – she got kicked out of my brother’s home – long story, but it’s sort of like this theme here that I’m living with).  Yesterday I was crying so hard after the fight, I called my brother in Michigan and we talked for a long time.  I felt better after talking with him.  He understands the frustration that she can cause.  He told me that she’s a master manipulator and to just stay away from her.  And to not let her hurt my son with this crap.

Anyway, I feel better today.  Tomorrow three girlfriends and I are going to the District Council of Catholic Women’s Conference on the east side of Missouri.  We leave early early in the morning and come home on Saturday.

Today for lunch, I’m meeting with my AA sponsor.  I haven’t seen her for a few weeks, so it’ll be good to touch base with her.

Now I’m off to my Friends’ Page to see what’s new in the world.

That baby is so cute!  My baby was round-faced but not quite that round-faced when he was that little….his face has always been more heart-shaped, and of course, a bit browner than that baby-face.

Anyhooooooooooow, it’s Wednesday, I’m at the library borrowing their computer because I spent the morning asleep.  Yeah, I went to Curves and worked out but afterwards was overwhelmed with sleep, so that’s what I did.  Then I woke up and had some Totino’s Pizza Rolls and read for a while (the new Diane magazine that Curves puts out) and then decided to come here.  I needed to type some stuff up for school; we need volunteers to read to the children during the day (in our new library) and I volunteered to get the volunteers.

I’m always volunteering for something, LOL

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  I’m at the library, I can’t LOL too LOUDLY!

So I typed up a note to give to the teachers, asking them which days of the week and what times would work best; and then a note to parents and parishioners asking them to help us out.  The teachers will be getting their note first and after I know what days and times will work, I can sned out the note to the parents and put it in the church bulletin.

I borrowed Ratatouille from the library today; we saw it when it came out (not dh, though) and ds wanted to see it again.  It came in today.  Maybe we can watch it Friday night.

Not sure what kind of mood I’m in today…….was sleepy earlier, now I’m just kind of thinking about stuff.  Christmas is coming.  Family stuff.  Still missing my dad.

I found out yesterday that my brother and his family are coming to the KCK area for Christmas.  We don’t travel for Christmas.  Well, we have TWICE since our marriage:  the first time in 1991 after my dad’s death and the second time was in 1998 when I was expecting Daniel.  My dh is taking off work the week after Christmas but I know without asking him that he won’t want to go to KCK and that’s alright, because I don’t want to go anyway.  It’s just too far to travel, we don’t have the $$ right now to travel (I’m saving my $$ to go to KC or St. Louis to see Michael Buble already!!), it’s just best to stay home.  Although, ds asked if we could go to COLORADO to snowboard LOL  I think one of his schoolmates’ families goes to Colorado for Christmas.  Another family goes to Orlando every Christmas……….we are boring, we just stay home!

Okay, I suppose it’s time to say so long.

So long!

I’m almost finished with my Christmas shopping!

I’ve ordered BOOKS for Daniel, a HARRY & DAVID BASKET for my brother and SIL in Michigan, a new ROBE for my mom………and next week I can pick up the rest of what I’ve ordered for my Mom and dh!

Sheesh!  It’s FUN but exhausting.

This past Saturday night was our BRANSON afternoon/evening Christmas Party.  We got to ride the charter bus down at 1:00 pm and didn’t get home until almost midnight.  I was so tired yesterday (Sunday) morning!  

And then Sunday afternoon was our PCCW Installation of 2008 Officers/Christmas Party.

Sheesh!  More fun!

And now the weather is NASTY – beyond NASTY.  I keep waiting for ds’s school to call and tell us to come get the children.  It’s icy and cold and wet and just plain NASTY!

My fingers are freezing down here LOL  Maybe I ought to just type faster? LOL

Anyhow, I am getting hungry for some lunch.  

Hasta La Vista!!!
