Pardon Me While I Rage...

This has been one of the worst weeks in my entire life. I'll go into that later but it's prompted a LOT of emotions and today is anger.

I know I'm not perfect, I know I'm not the perfect daughter in law but good grief, thanks for making us feel like garbage.
The only time we've talked in the last 12 months is when WE call YOU. You didn't call us for TEN months. You forget your son's birthday and then when you realize it you call 3 or 4 times a week for 5 weeks to apologize until we finally decided to answer the phone. Since then? Well, we haven't heard a freaking word since then. In fact the ONLY thing we have received are 2 mass texts and a bunch of pictures of your grandchild.

I was totally right when I said "out of sight, out of mind". I'm so sorry that we don't live "right down the street" and I can promise you that we never will. It doesn't mean that we're garbage though. It doesn't mean that we don't like to hear from and about family from time to time.
Six weeks since the last phone call from you ... S.I.X. Weeks!!!! Have you bothered to ask how Quagmire is doing? Nope. Have you bothered to even call and see if we're ok now that he's passed? Nope.
You're too damn wrapped up in the lives of your perfect son, daughter-in-law and grandchild to give 2 shits about us.

Well, I have news for you. The ONLY reason the phone gets answered when you call is because *I* answer it. He sure as hell doesn't want to and now I don't want to anymore either. So, I hope you're happy. You can get your few random updates about us from FB or from word of mouth because I'm not answering the phone until I'm not angry anymore and who knows how long THAT will take. I'm a Scorpio, I can hold a grudge FOREVER.

Mother's Day is in one week. Don't expect anything. Seriously, just don't. And if it makes you feel any better to blame me for the fact that you don't talk to your son then knock yourself out. *I* know the truth and if you can't face it then just blame me because I don't bloody care anymore.
