I am awful, horrible, and evil...

And I'm finding it hard to care. There are times when certain people just open their mouths to speak and you get irritated. You know that every word or phrase that comes out is just going to be one big whinefest, or one humongous complaint, or something negative.

I don't have the time or energy for such moments. I am tired of the energy vampires sucking the life out of me. Done. Over. Stick a fork in that.

And if that makes me a selfish bitch, I've been called worse.

What's going on? Golly, I think you're probably the least selfish person I know.

Well, for every one person who may think that just remember there are at least 5 who love you! :)

Maybe 6.

7 even.

8. I mean 9. I forgot The General.

Oh no, nobody called me out on anything. I just have an energy vampire in my life who sometimes gets on my last damn nerve, and if I say something truthful to this person ... then I'm mean and hateful.

Three guesses as to who. First two don't count.

"Sometimes gets on my last damn nerve" ... "If I say something truthful to this person ... then I'm mean and hateful" .... hmmmmm ...

I think I might have one of those. I call her by a nickname:

"Mom."

ANYway, I for one am completely stumped. Can you spot me some hints? :-)

I figured it out.

The Goon® is back in your life!

*dodges to avoid whatever it is Nettie has just thrown at me*

Them thar's fightin' words, my friend!!!

(You were closer to the target the first time.....)

Talmadge G. said...

Yeah, I had a gut feeling.

Don't I understand. Truly I do.

(couldn't resist the other guess, tho')

And if so, you are not 'awful, horrible and evil' ...

My 'other grandmother' was the same way to my mother who is the same way to me ... and, to a lesser extent, my [cue angelic chorus] brother [/chorus].

I'm sorry, but I'll be golldurned if I'm gonna continue the cycle. I'm not perfect with my son, I've made mistakes, stuff I'd do differently if given a second chance and a time machine. He's tested me in the past -- however I do not want to ever "suck energy" out of my son.

I might be a spittin' image of my mother's family (paternal side!), but I don't want my son to think the same of me as I think of my parents. I'll piss him off many times, but that doesn't mean it'll be an adversarial relationship. Or whining to him, etc.

Life's too short. And I'm tired of the games myself. Let Milton Bradley have 'em.

We love you. You're none of your title.
