Asking my mom for a simple favor is a dangerous thing to do. I had a workshop run late this afternoon and I asked her to pick the girl up from school. What was supposed to be a quick pick up turned into a 2 hour long visit, complete with her making me feel like a selfish, irresponsible parent. When she questioned something about my love life and how I may not be giving the kids enough attention, I actually fought back.

I know. I'm a bad daughter. But it had to be done. I will not allow her to bully me into feeling like this any more. No favor is worth this.

The fact that this comes from one of the most irresponsible, selfish parents I know is the great irony.

Apparently, I'm still too angry to talk about this and have been sitting here all night hoping to be able to get it off my chest but I'm not sure I can talk about it rationally yet. Writing is not coming as easily as I thought it would. I've shut down and need some time to process all of this.
