Happy Anniversary

It's the two year anniversary since Mom's discovery of cancer. In a way, it feels like it's been much much longer. We definitely need a cake or something. Of course, Nurse Sis is on Atkins, so that won't work...

We had a family meeting last night about needing more help around the house. Nurse Sis and I are close to nervous breakdowns. I think some progress is going to be made.

The hardest thing about trying to maintain the household and give Mom a feeling of independence has been not earning a paycheck. It really puts your self-esteem in the toilet as an adult. And the money stress on top of everything else is just unfair. We need to get Mom well enough that she doesn't take a turn for the worse everytime Nurse Sis or I try to take a job outside the house.

That's very kind, especially coming from a Master of telekinesis. Now go watch your porn. :)

Mom is all upset that I told some cute stranger to go watch his porn "why were you so harsh to him?"

I told her to go read your blog so she'd get the joke. Jeesh. Do I really need my mother reading everything I write?

I've managed to make myself forget that I gave my mother the URL to my blog -- well, obviously, most of the time, anyhoo (so you see, brain fog can be used to *good* purposes, sometimes...)
