I need another day off. I can't believe the weekend goes by so fast. I am constantly trying to keep up with everything, then weekends are spent catching up with cleaning and this weekend in particular, trying to winterize the house as I have quite a few air-draft problem areas that drove me crazy last year. You should not stand at your kitchen sink and feel a draft coming from the window when they are shut and locked and it is ten degrees outside. Then I was trying to work on a paper for my class, and entertain the kids, and try to do a little housework. I just want to sit on the couch and watch a movie,- oh nope...dinner time. I have to cook again (didn't I just get done cleaning up from lunch??). sigh.

Then I started thinking.... I wish I had a mom who invited us over for dinner every Sunday night...who called once a week to see how we're doing or if I needed anything.... or who didn't criticize the way I cook or that my house is a mess, or how I am disciplining my children... or how they fight (they're siblings what do you expect). I wish I had a mom I could talk to and who supported me and encouraged me. I wish my mom would have sent me a birthday card on my 40th birthday that said she loved me and that she was proud of me. I miss holiday dinners when we were young and my mom would decorate with the tall candles and festive dinnerware, and fizzy apple cider......

I wish she didn't hate me.

I've tried patching things up. It just doesn't work with her. The last time she showed up at my house expecting an apology from my son (for something really stupid), she told me how she still hasn't forgiven me for something that happened SIXTEEN years ago at my wedding (that I took my mother-in-law dress shopping BEFORE her, heaven forbid). She is also still mad that I invited my father (they have been divorced for 20 years prior to that). I just wish I had a mom who loved me.

I wish you did, too. It sure would be helpful.

I don't have a Mom like that, either. I sure do understand how you feel......

I worry that my boys will be without a loving mom too.

But, I hope and Pray they learn to forgive and not let ego get in the way of having good lives and good relationships.
