This morning's reading struck close to home. Are you an angry person? Or does being around your mother make you an angry person? Or does this sound like someone you know? I know dating stupid men makes be blow up. However, before P and that fiasco, I wasn't angry. I was incredibly patient. Now I hate people. Good thing I don't work. I couldn't bear to have a boss. Good thing I don't live by my mother, either.
While we were gone, J and I seriously missed our kitties. Norma and/or her son came down daily to care for them. Her son stayed and watched TV with them sometimes, with a few joining him on the couch. As a result, the cats weren't weird upon our return. The only odd thing, which also happened while were were gone, was that all four of them would be piled up just inside the front door waiting for the next visitor. Open the door and they're all there. In fact, Spencie, who chases Memphie, allowed Memphie into the gathering. Since then, Memphie can walk by Spencie without threat. I think this change in dynamic due to our travel is actually beneficial.
My back started peeling last night. It is still bright red, though. J kept shaking his head, saying how bad it is, but he hasn't seen really bad. We both missed the blister stage, but I think most of this is locationally induced, as in under my bra strap.
Hope everyone is having a good day. I'm about to unload at my therapist's and cannot wait. I want some validation that my anger was justified.
Oh I got that email from eHarmony this morning too. (from a crazy moment of trying a free trial over a year ago)
I thought it odd that it was a list of "sins"
i love the pictures of the trip. i can relate on the mother front. i didn't speak to mine for many years and i'm barely tolerating it now. it's all baout putting the phone on speaker and doing other things while she talks/complains on and on.
I've spent the better part of 2 years trying to make peace with who my mother really IS (harder than it sounds, because it's always changing), and I'm finally succeeding. It's been a long, anger-filled time coming.
Anger, you say?!?
I'd probably blow the door off the hinges if I went back to see MY therapist at this point...
I hate people as well, I just don't think that it is a bad thing. I think of it as a good defense.
