I am back...from PEI to Halifax and then to CApe Breton and back, should have been quite a trip, but let's say it was an experience, but not all good. We arrived safely and the highlight was a trip to a live theatre of "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas". I went there with my cousin and my niece and the entertainment was excellent, I did take offence at the language but I should have known with the title..
I got to spend 2 nites with my best friend of 50 years, we got to really talk and helped each other understand how our mothers treat us and the family dynamics we each are dealing with. We drank a bottle of champagne one nite and stayed up talking till 1am.
I spent another afternoon at the locker with ex trying to find stuff like my winter stuff etc. It was heart-breaking.
I got to spend an evening with my uncle and aunt again. Sis called at 7:01 am to get up and by 7:20 she called and she was there to pick me up. We were on the road travelling by 7:35.
After we got back, my sis confronted me about my mother "supposedly" wants me to help her out by a couple hundred dollars a month. So, it's been rough. Many people I have been in contact with here can't believe I am not being paid for being here to help out my mother and though I wasn't expecting to be paid, -(but it seems very excessive that I am now expected to pay up - (Several years ago I was working as a live-in and the job was a whole lot easier than here and I got $1900 a month).
It's been a very rough week..... today I spent time with 2 friends and it was very good for me. My other sis arrived tonite and they're all gone out to Bingo, so I have time alone, just talking on the phone.
THe big plus is that I checked in with my weight on Mon. and I was only up .4 of a lb... 189.8!! For the food and treats I had, that was great...
I feel a big confrontation coming up - but I can't live like this.
Oh, and also had a couple hr. conversation with ex the other nite and finally he told me, "Maybe I should walk away", so finally, maybe now I can move ahead and get on with my life. It's certainly time.
