My Mood: o.k. to take lots more gabapentin?
Default Mom and Dad had weather issues & did not arrive Thurs night

Mom and Dad's airline was hung up with severe weather
throughout their trip.

They had to be re-routed to a city in the opposite direction and so on.

Via phone they said that they would eventually land in one of the
cities near-ish to us and rent a car to drive to their hotel where they had reservations.

=-=
They expected to get into their hotel very late.
They said that they would be at our house today around 9:00 am
in their rental car.


=-=-=-

It's supposed to rain / thunder here today so we have to rethink the parks
where they usually spend their time here (Mom with Hubby and Dad with me)

I had VERY LITTLE SLEEP.

It sounds like you parents had a wonderful start to their visit

I certainly wouldn't expect them at 9am after all that BS and late arrival, nor would I be happy about that. I'm sure you're thrilled since you had no sleep

I hope that you can figure out some things to do together (separately) without too much hassle, and I hope this ends up being a nice visit...
I know that it will be stressful for you at times tho

Yesterday and then again just now I had a hassle logging into here.


I'm frustrated about so many many things.

Mom and dad are fine.


Hubby and Mom went walking.
Dad and I sat on the couch in the living room the whole day and talked.

==-=-=
After dinner and before they went back to their hotel using my car,
Dad said that he wants me to fly to their house to help him and his
museum team set up the parameters of a writing and research project
they are starting.

Last night at the dinner table I reminded Mom of something VERY mean she said to me when
Dad was out of the country and I was home from college for spring break.


=-=-
At first she thought it was a joke and laughed.
I said, "I remember. I was there."
Then she was horrified.

Later, after dinner, she apologized.
I told her, "It's a long time ago and I got over it."

=-=-=-


I woke up crying today because apparently I am NOT over it.
She was such a b**** to me during that time and other times.

I am sorry sorry she was cruel to you and that she obviously so insensitive. I think if we had different backgrounds our bipolar wouldn't be so bad.

I so wish that your mother’s apology was cathartic

But I can understand why it was not. In families, it’s usually not just one wound that’s inflicted upon us by one or more people, and sometimes when we think of or talk about one incident, we can be overwhelmed by many (((HUGS)))

It happens to me. I try not to go too far down the rabbit hole, but sometimes it can’t be helped. I try to avoid confronting anyone tho because there are NO apologies in my family.

I hope that you are managing things better, and feeling better, soon. It must be hard with her still visiting

Love to you today Mari

My remark to my Mom just kind of "came out." -- We had all been talking
at the same time and laughing.

Maybe, maybe (I don't know) it was good that I said it. I'm still trying
to do "self-soothing" today. Maybe it was something that I really needed
to get out after all those years.


=-=-

I drove them to the crowded AIRPORT today.

I screwed up twice by taking the wrong ramp. (Dad
also screwed up reading the signs for me.)

=-=-
FINALLY, I told Dad that if I could not get them to exact floor/level
for "Departures," I could drop them off at "Arrivals" and they could take the escalators up stars to the correct floor.

That's what they did.

They were way way early for their plane so they felt good about that.

Mari,

I hope that something positive comes out of that conversation with your mother. In the meantime, I'm happy that you are able to self-soothe

The drive to the airport must have been stressful. I don't envy you. I'm glad that things worked out.
