Wonderful Weekend!

Friday, August 24, 2012

Yes - it is going to be a wonderful weekend! I'm one of those people who have cooked Sunday dinner for everybody and anybody for years. I love to cook and it was a great way to keep my kids connected to grandparents and later for them to bring home boyfriends, etc.

Well - I admit it. It has gotten to be a chore. As our Moms have aged it is not so much fun to spend all day cooking and cleaning to listen to my Mom criticize anything and everything ("I'm old - I can say what I want") and my poor Mother-In-Law can't hear so she just jumps randomly into conversations - and my girls are annoyed when my Mom is being critical or better still - completely ignoring a boyfriend because she doesn't approve..

So - I broke free - I told the Moms that I was going down to every other week. Every week was getting to be too much for me. MIL - got it in one and said - of course, I don't know how you've done it so long - Mom - she picks up her wine glass, carries it into the kitchen while announcing she wouldn't want to burdon me carry it out. Sigh....

But here's the good thing. My girls still show up every week - I feel very relaxed and stress-free - and we still are seeing them every other week. This week it is on - but it's okay - because then I have a beautiful long weekend (Thursday through Tuesday) and do not have to break it up with Sunday Supper! Yay -- makes me happy! Woo hoo. I promise I will bite my tongue, walk away and not get into it with my mom.

    LOL!!! My family (mom, 2 brothers, 2 sisters + husbands, me and hubby and 13 kids) used to get together once a month for food. Well that has kind of change to once every couple of months to only if it is a special day. Mom got tired of the fighting and fussing and the complaining, so now she just sees us individually. lol!

    Hope your weekend is going great!
