Lol!! Wet beer fart... Best analagy ever!!
What happened? Your mom isn't living with you anymore?
She needs to go back to work. She could open up her own practice with her old clients if she wanted. But I really think she's looking for a man to take care of her, and I hate to say it but if she up and moved away to be with one of her suiters, it might not be so bad. Let some poor chump take care of her crazy azz.
As far as grandkids go, she's only puts on a show every once in a while to act like she cares about them. She's really never shown any interest. Too self absorbed. She's not allowed to watch mine even though they are 7 and 10. I did let her watch them one time for an hour while I went to the grocery store, but I made sure they were occupied first.
She wants a 1960s set-up in 2016...... not impossible but I wouldn't hold my breath. She sounds capable of working and obviously has the credentials.... what is stopping her? 1960s thoughts?
I hate to hear that about how she acts about her grandkids.... truly freaking sorry. She seems to want the easiest road which, in the end, is always the hardest. God knows you can't tell a parent a Gdamn thing.... they know it all. *eyeroll*
I have yet to post on my C III but in summary.... last week mom began screaming at me, yelling how much of a sorry arse POS I was and I went to the bedroom. Locked the door.... she kicked, punched the door, broke the lock.... think ala Zillard's thread..... I did at the time.
Anyway... she told me if abortions were legal in 1971, she would have aborted me. All which needs to be said. Game... set.... match.
"Mom you know it's funny, it took you trying to move in, for you to tell me how much of a Gdamn sorry MF I was... how ironic" Yet she was Edith Bunker to the rest of the world. I may put up with more than others but when it reaches a point, F you, ice cold, burn in he!!.
She told me about 20 years ago she saw me not speaking to her. She sat in a recliner reading the Bible hoping I would talk to her. Well... you know how I am with premonitions.....
