I took my mother out to a mall and an Outback Steakhouse.  Unfortunately, Dad put us in a position where we were forced to bring him along, though.

Regardless, we had a lot of fun.  We don't have a mall around here, anymore, so we had to go to a legitimately large city to find one.

I went out with a few of my aunts and my grandmother for mothers day.

Well... This day has lost some meaning.  I lost my Mum, last year.

I sorta know how you feel... my grandmother died last year, as well.  Mom misses her a lot today.

It's a mixed bag with Mum.  She was a little nuts, and didn't know the meaning of the word budget...  And very religious, and wanted to use religion as a reason for me to be her slave.  So not exactly sane...

In a way, that makes it even harder.

I'm sorry about the pain you're going through, though.

I called mine and pretty much regretted doing so, because I dared ask for help to make my cousin's wedding in August.  Apparently I'm supposed to be able to cover a $1000 trip on my own on $9.50 an hour, and take $350 repairs to my car in stride, rather than, y'know, it being a huge hit to our savings.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

Hey, love her while you still got her. Yes, moms can be petty and even bitchy, or nuts, and my mom was all those at one point or another during her life, but I really miss my mom.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

I had a fine day with my mom, my grandma, and my great aunt. It was especially nice to see my aunt, I haven't seen her since my great uncle died a few months ago.
