Today is my mom's birthday. She and I aren't on speaking terms so this is about as close as she'll get to well-wishes from me. Sad but true.
Unfortunately I have had to take a "tough love" approach to her since her husband is a piece of shit and while I've told her of the things he has done behind her back she won't listen. She watched him physically attack me and still she stays. I've got enough stress in my world. I can't deal with all of that so I've removed myself from her life.
I'll be more than happy to try to repair our relationship if/ when she decides that the douche isn't treating her right. Until then . . .
