Lost my mom to cancer last June. It was so fast and one of the most devastating things I've ever experienced. She, my brother and I were close. Sometimes it really hurts and when my kids tell me they miss her my heart shatters because they had the most amazing lovng grandma and lost her too soon. I've noticed it's less often and less intense, the grief and I know it's normal. But sometimes I don't want the pain to fade. That pain helps me remember her. When the pain is less, I feel like I remember her less. I dont want it to consume me. I am happy. I laugh, I live but I never want her memory to fade.

Whenever my mother gets upset, she doesn't calmly talk. She screams her point repeatedly, not listening even if she is wrong. Finally I just turned to her and said quietly "I think the problem is the more you yell, the more you realize you are wrong. You think yelling is trying to get the point across. It is not and you are making things worse. If you are frustrated, then please take a breath." I won't talk to her until she calms down. I am no longer a kid who has to do what she says even if I know deep down it is wrong but an adult who deserves the same respect she gives a stranger. She likes to throw things in my face such as my religion (Honor thy mother..) but I know she is being dishonest or wanting to hurt others, I cannot listen to her.

Every morning I get up really early, fix a really healthy breakfast and a really healthy lunch for my daughter, get her ready for school, drive her to school, then come back and buy myself a coke and bag of chips for my really unhealthy breakfast. Shame on me!

My ex (DS15 & DD10's bio dad), has never really been around for them. Long story short, he was only in DS''s life, then when DD was 9 months old, I finally left for good. The years to follow, he'd make promises that he'd never keep, and now DS is resentful of him (ya think?). About a year ago, he finally reappeared, but neither one of my kids want anything to do with him. I get a whopping $76 per month in child support (he's on disability), and nothing more. We're friends on FB & still talk from time to time, but he's always posting pictures of tattoos that he's doing and "checking in" at all these restaurants spending $$ that he's made from said tattoos. I want to take him back to court for more child support but DH thinks that with the way things are ($76 p/month), it's his way of staying OUT of the kids lives and ruining our happy and loving family. DH is dad to them, and always will be and loves them unconditionally. We're fine with mine and DH's salaries alone, but it'd be nice to have the ex pay more.

The whole Easter basket thing is out of control already. People are selling them (handmade) left and right! Some are nice and all, I'll give them credit for a job well done, but really, do we need to teach our kids that Easter is about Peeps and toys and clothes and iPads?

It's spring break. I work for the school system. I had big, big plans to spring clean while we're off. Who the eff am I kidding? I'm spending most of my time watching DVRd programs/movies and surfing the internet. My username should be SlackerD.

I could be at deaths door and my mother would still tell me I am faking or lying. I hated growing up because no one was ever allowed to just relax and do nothing. No sleeping in, no staying home from school sick. She never babysits unless it's medical/emergency related because she doesn't believe mothers deserve a break. The she complains I didn't have a big family like she did- if I don't get a break from two kids (one with medical issues) why would I have more? My DH always sides with her and I just want to tell them both to fuck off. I am not a bad parent for taking a nap when I haven't slept in days.
