a strange bird?

thurmanNovember 22, 2010

Hi Folks~

Well, my SD invited my Mom to church. That sounds like a nice thing. My Mom couldn't go.

What I didn't like, however, is that my SD sends me an email telling me my email has a virus and is sending out those phony messages about computers, but she doesn't tell me she called my Mother to talk to her.

Don't you think she is a strange bird?

Nope, I don't think much about it at all.

Nice of her to let you know your computer might be off whack though.

I don't tell anyone, spouse included, absolutely every thing I do at all times either...it's not a 'secret', just not always news worthy. If I called his mother to chat, usually never mentioned it (she has passed on now)unless it was something I felt was important to repeat. If his son, my SS, calls, I might mention it, might not. I don't necessarily think I must report to anyone else exactly every movement and/or thought I have.

What's the big deal? I assume your SD would have gotten around to it eventually or figured you'd hear about it from your mother yourself when you talk to Mom. While it might be your mother, you can't control everybody Mom talks to nor should Mom tell you immediately just because someone you know calls/invites her.

Speaking of 'birds', if you're into celebrating the upcoming holidays, Happy Thanksgiving to you, Thurman.

"speaking of birds", justmetoo, too funny....

She is in her 30s, your mom is elderly, so if they call each other it is not necessarily something to report to you. They are adults. Not a big deal.

I talk to DH's family without telling him. If it comes up, it comes up. My DD called DH's aunt (like a mom to him) to ask her to come to a performance with her. And no, DH was not invited. DD is 8.

We figure, the more people who get along in the family and have healthy independent relationships, the less we have to "babysit" people's emotions.

People irritate me too Thurman. There are several in my family. Make nice, and move on...
