As an adult, do your parents still make you so mad you could just spit *rant*
The other night, I was leading two of my horses back to the pasture after their workout and my cell phone went off. I ignored it till I got them in the pasture and when I was done realized it was my mom calling my from PA. We live in GA and are 750 miles away. I call her back and she asks if I had gotten my birthday card and check (she always send me a check for my birthday) I said yes, and thanked her for it and apologized for missing her call but that I was leading the horses back to the pasture and had my hands full. Her comment really got me cause she said "Oh, you have horses now, that just what you need, they are expensive to take care of. As long as I am not paying for them though, you can do what you want." In her snippy voice that she used to use when I was a kid. I am almost 38 years old, have been married for 18 years, have not asked her for any financial help YEARS. My husband and I both have full time, decent paying jobs, and the horses are an enjoyment for us and our children. I bit my tongue cause I wanted to say your grandkids are wayyyyy more expensive then the horses, yet you aren't gripping because I had them! She is one of the main reasons why my husband and I never moved back to PA after he got out of the military!!!!
