My Mother is going away for a week with my brother and sisterinlaw, they are going to the Bar Harbor and see the sites around that area for a week. It will be so good for Mom, she hasnt been away for quite awhile. And you know what????? I will be alone for a week!!!! Not that I mind Mom being here, we get along great and I enjoy having her here...but as they say, when the cats away the mice will play!
I am going to stay up late every night and sleep in everyday. I am going shopping with my friends, I am not going to make my bed all week, Im not cooking, Im eating out everyday. I may go out a couple nights with some friends.
My Mother hates my computer! She says she wishes it would break....it used to be in my bedroom and she said she felt like she lived alone b/c I was always in my room. Last weekend my friend Russell and I moved it out into the tv room. I said..."Does it make you feel better that I am out here with you now?" She said " well all I can see is the back of your head". Some times being a daughter is tough. lol.
I was going to go to Walmart tonight about 10:30pm. She said " its too late for you to go"...just like when I am going to town and it is raining and she says " you are not going in the rain are you?"...lol..."I say, thats why we have a car with a roof on it, so I dont get wet." When my gf and I got our tattoos and we showed them to her and she was mad! She said " you will never get into heaven with that tattoo ( its only a wolf), I said "well Gary ( my brother) has a tattoo, do you suppose he will get into heaven?" She said " well he only has a little one!" I said " oh...I see..it depends on the size of the tattoo then?"
She will soon be 79 years old. I can see so many changes in her. She is very critical and she never used to be. When we watch tv she will say..."oh that girl has had her lips done, it looks so ugly. And if we are watching a movie and someone is having sex she has a fit...." oh why do they do that on tv???" I say " well Mom believe it or not some people do enjoy sex! You obviously used to, having us 3 kids all in 30 months!" I mean its not like they are showing the actual sex act.
And anything that goes wrong around here, she didnt do it!!! My washer and dryer have doors in front of them that are on a tract, Mom is the only one who washes clothes, she doesnt " allow" me to , she says I dont know how to wash clothes ( I washed clothes for 30 years before she moved in here). So the doors are off tract.....she didnt do it!!!( No one else uses them! )
My hair is naturally curly and a lot of times I just let it go wild....kinda that messed up look. When we get ready to go somewhere she will look at my hair and say " you gonna fix your hair?" I say " I did." She says " well let me get the brush and and straighten it out." I say " No I want it this way"...she says " well its a mess". Thank you very much Mother dear!
And I laugh....I just laugh! Because I love her and I am thankful that I still have her. And even though she would never think of saying some of the things to my brothers that she says to me, I just laugh! And while I was growing up she was always there for me and as I got older she became my best friend. She is different now.....shes getting older, but she is still my Mother and I will always love and respect her. ( but I am gonna enjoy this week alone doing exactly as I please!)
Lets Talk.. Catch at 1:51 AM
