no, my mom & i are still not speaking.....just thought i should clear that up. i went back & forth, part of me felt i should call her, but last time that didn't really solve the problem [obviously bc she's doing it again] so i decided, that i will let her call.
she started the game, she can end it.
i know bad.
she sent Z a card for halloween & another one for thanksgiving. so i know she didn't have any plans of coming over. funny thing is, all this time i haven't been missing her, i've actually been thinking about how she failed me as a parent. how i was robbed of being a child & forced to be an adult bc she didn't know what to do with me. how she annihilated my sense of self worth & would put me down.
um, that's not where i was going with this so let's move on please....
lalala, so yes, thanksgiving was not what we had expected. B's family plans got thrown out the window & i'm not even going to get into that one....at one point we were seriously considering going back to the desert for the holiday to spend with B's bff R & the family of redheads who were also kind & considerate enough to invite us over as well.
thank you lord, we have friends, bc the family stuff ain't working.
B's bff R, girlfriend & momma came to town bringing desserts. we prepped turkey, stuffing & spinach dip, then all of us headed over to the neighbors who prepared side dishes. guess what? you know why she didn't have family over? bc she's having family issues too! we all had our little part which ended up a feast & nobody was overwhelmed, it was a really good feeling.
this year's thanksgiving was all about friends, the people who hang out with you bc they like you not bc they have to.
