How in the world does she ever expect you to have faith in yourself???
It's possible that my baby sister (the one with all the drama a couple of weeks ago) could come live with me. My mom actually suggested it to me, and I'd been working up to mentioning it to my sister. Well, yesterday I sent her a text asking if she'd found a job yet, and telling her we have an opening in my building. She is seriously considering trying to enroll in school up here and finding a job. She's on her way up here now, just to hang out and possibly check out the school.
My mom just called and she is freaking out. She is NOT happy with me right now. Apparently, she just meant my sister should stay for a little while, not move here. She doesn't think I can handle having them here and still work (geez...isn't that what MOTHERS do?), and my house is too "tiny" (1100 square feet, plus a 500 square foot basement I could finish if I needed to) for them. The REAL issue, I think, is that if she lives here, my mom can't control her every move. She won't be able to tell if she's taking her meds, or getting her oil changed, or doing whatever medial task my mom thinks HAS to be done right then and there. There's a boy my sister met up here and my mom's all worried he's going to break her heart. I'm pretty sure there's a good chance that'll happen, and if it does, it does, and she'll get over it. That's life. She thinks my sister is being too impulsive. I think she's trying to pick up the pieces and start a new life. I also think my mom is still hopeful that the JERK who fathered the baby will suddenly change and they'll get back together and live happily ever after. That is NOT what needs to happen!
Grrr...this is the first week of school, and I don't need my mother causing drama! My baby sister is on her way up here now, my first day of school is Thursday, and Thursday night I will have a houseful of people here. I will definitely be ready for a drink this weekend!!
