View CELAWLOR's food & exercise for this day
So my mother and her sisters (all in their 50's, btw) were sitting around the dinner table yesterday "arguing" about who was abused more as a child.
The brothers were not present to get their two cents in, THANK GOD!!!
Seriously, people, does it matter? Is it worth arguing about? Is there a prize that gets awarded to the most abused/least f'd up one among you? WTF??? This "get together" was, according to my mother, called so that everyone could visit with my kiddo and I. I retreated with my boy to read our books upstairs when the conversation took a nosedive. I am so over my childhood abuse and neglect...been over it for a while...and they are STILL carrying on. I have no patience for this nonsense. I live for today. You can't do anything about the past, you can only affect your present.
I told my mother this morning that I was going to cut my visit shorter. She already suspected I would say that. I don't know when I will leave, yet, but I am not staying the weekend. She said that my brother and her were talking about how 3 or 4 days visit was enough. I agree. Maybe I will leave on Thursday. I know she really wants to go shopping with me and she really needs a new hairdo and wants me to go with her to the salon. Maybe we can do that on Wednesday and I can leave Thursday morning. Or, if she can't change her appointment, maybe I will leave Wednesday PM and get a room in Wichita, again. That could work. I guess we'll see when she gets home tonight.
I go back to the gym tonight for a nice two mile run. It's all bout form, form, form tonight and tomorrow. Twist and jab...twist and jab.
