Ok, This is the first holiday without mom. In less you count Halloween . Every year for the last 3 or 4 years I would get invited to some one's house for Thanksgiving and I would say no I have to stay with mom. Sometimes my sister would ask me if I wanted to do something and she would stay with mom. But she has kids that she can be with and they all cook a big meal so I wanted her to be with them on Thanksgiving and Christmas. We could of had a big dinner here but it always seems like a lot of work on me and not so much on everyone else. We cook and I care for mom. We eat and I care for mom We clean up and I care for mom. They rest and I care for mom. Not so much fun for me and mom. Anyway this year I am going to my son's girlfriend's mom's house to dinner. It is going to be weird. Being social is something new to me now. I need mom . I miss mom and dad. No one to hold me back and I want her here so I can say I need to stay with mom. Used to I would cry and say I want my dad now I cry and say I want my mom and dad. Time to grow up right? There are to many I's in the post again. It is all about me, me, me. Trying to get better . Just going a little slower than I thought it would. The real world is harder than I remember. Working and being out in public is going to take awhile to get used to. The Lord willing by Christmas I will be back in the game. Happy Thanksgiving.
