Poor kitty. That is so hard right now, especially! Hang in there...
Ugh, I have like 3 more hours of work to do this weekend and I am so not into it... I want to just clean and organize my house and bake cookies. Not work. Sorry, I am having a pity pouty party!
I also have to call my parents this weekend and I am so not looking forward to it... I don't mind talking to my dad, but my mom stresses me out! I know she will want to come and "help" when the baby is born, but she doesn't respect my boundaries and has some personality issues that are hard to deal with with pregnancy hormones! I don't even want to tell them the EDD, and just lie and say it is in June... but then I feel terrible for lying! But this is my 5th time doing this, and it always plays out the same. She expects a level of hospitality I can barely provide with 4 kids and working at home--let alone with a newborn 5th child!!!!!!!!!!! And the exhaustion of everything.
She is emotionally abusive and just difficult to handle.... and I don't want to deal with that or the threat of that while having a baby. I was so stressed out when my last little guy was born, and 95 per cent of it was caused by my mother.
I realize she has issues, and try to forgive her, but really just don't want to have to take the higher road this time... I just want some space and peace. Now how to convey that to her?!
Ugh.... Sorry for the vent, I just can't expect any empathy or ability to see it from my perspective from her, but at the same time I do love her and don't want to hurt her......
