This has disaster written all over it...to quote Annette Bening in The American President. My mother is having a birthday party for Miss KT, and apparently is angry that Hubby and I are not hosting it. I told Miss KT that if we got her a car, that was it, because we couldn't afford to do party and presents after that. Miss KT said she was fine with that. On the guest list, front and center, are Useless Boy and his mama, both of whom hate my guts. The older my mother gets, the more bitter and angry she becomes. She no longer calls me to chat, and barely talks to me when I call over there. So, I don't call very often. I did talk to her yesterday, and she was making sarcastic comments about Hubby's family regarding the party. I don't know if this is because she is making "this supreme sacrifice, putting my life on hold, to raise YOUR child", although she's the one who started that ball rolling. or exactly what her problem is. I'm not sure I want to know either. If you happen to have some spare prayers, or beads to rattle, help us get through this afternoon without any fallout. I want Miss KT to have a nice birthday.
