We did not go to my parents for Mother's Day yesterday because gfgbro was there once Mom was home. We spoke and made plans to go over at six or so tonight. husband came home shaken up a bit, and so it was five min after when we pulled up. My parents were both asleep. The dog barked because she doesn't know us (I have only seen her once because every time I want to go over my gfgbro is there and has left a message letting me know he is trying to force me to interact with him or not see my parents. They don't believe me, think I made it up from the coincidence of him being there every time we go over.) Anyway, my dad came out and gave us each a hug and we left. I left his birthday gift (a really COOL sculpture of a knight in armor made of metal), my niece's easter basket (nothing big), and my mom's mother's day gift. It was just very odd. I know my mom wanted us to come over. She ahs been having a lot of back pain and gets very tired, but she picked the time for us to come over. I hope she is just resting after a busy weekend with an estate sale, but I am a bit worried. Is it bad that I am a bit upset? I really want to spend time with my mom and dad, and so do my kids. I thought she had accepted that we won't be around gfgbro. Maybe I was wrong and this is one way she is telling me taht if we won't see him we won't see her?? For now I am chalking it up to being forgetful and tired. It still kind of hurts.
