Apologizing First--Whiney, Ranty Mood

I'm in a pissy mood, and I can't even use PMS as an excuse.

  1. Why is it somehow my fault our son refuses to eat vegetables? I keep telling my DH it's his fault--he's the one with the brother who only ate corn until he was 35, genetically it came from his side of the family not mine.
  2. Why do I have to spend Mother's Day with my SIL from hell? She has once again started a family riot over something ridiculous. I dread "get togethers" with my DH family.
  3. Why am I the sounding board when my mother is mad at my father? I really wish to remain clueless--which I've told her, but it falls on deaf ears.

On a lighter note, I'm reading Lisa Cach's George and the Virgin. I realize I'm 3 years behind the times, it's silly book, but at this point it's entertaining.

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you still have a nice Mother's Day despite the fact that you do have to spend it with someone you really don't want to.

Thank you Amy--in the grand scheme of things it's really not a big deal, I'm in a whiney mood--LOL.

Well, since it's Mother's Day you could put your foot down & refuse to spend time with SIL. Simply insist you want peace & quiet alone at your home for Mother's Day.

As to being your mom's sounding board- I have no advice. I've tried for years to put up boundaries with my mom regarding the same issue (her dumping on me) to no avail.

BTW- why is it that if we don't do as others wish suddenly we're the bad girl (so to speak)?! Ok, You've hit a nerve here...

Amanda, I would actually have done this, but it's also my God-daughter's first birthday, and I'm not about to miss her special day because one of her aunts is a pain in the butt.
