Today's major stress was brought to me by my 29 year old daughter. emoticon

She was home for a visit with her little dog Lucky. I love and adore that dog.

I don't love and adore when he pee's on my floor and daughter ignores the mess. She was sitting on the couch watching a movie when I told her about it. No response. Gave her a friendly reminder 5 minutes later. I get a moan in return, she doesn't feel good. When I notice the river of pee is snaking to the opposite side of my kitchen, I lose it. Tell her to get off her butt and take care of it. She yells back but I hear her getting up.

Well, she got me. Instead of cleaning it up, she through a large glass of water on top of it and stormed off.

I got about 3 texts telling me what an awful mother I was. I got an apology 45 minutes later via text.

I'm still angry 3 hours later. She is supposed to come over tomorrow so I can run errands with her. I really don't want to be around her.

But she is my daughter...

And, I love her unconditionally even if I am angry.

And I am. emoticon

    Ouch! That's tough. I'm in my 50's with no husband or kids, but I do have a sister. I love her but I don't always want to be around her. That's normal, no? However, we should be able to set limits we need. I don't know what limits you'd want with the dog or what the history is with your daughter. Can you leave the dog outside? If YOU really enjoy having the dog around, you might have to bend a bit on who cleans up. If not, you need to set the groundrules. I support whatever limits you think will promote warmth between you. emoticon
