Making Amends

Quite a while back I had a pretty big falling-out with my mother-in-law. To the point where I told her I never wanted to talk to her again, and she wasn't welcome at my house for Christmas.

They say time heals all wounds, and I guess that's true. It's been so long since I first got mad, that while I do remember what made me mad, it doesn't have the emotional hold on me that it had when it first happened. So I'm taking some small steps to fix what got broken. I really hope that she at least understands why I was mad, and that history doesn't repeat itself some time in the future.

On that same note, I think I'm done being upset about the other thing too, that I mentioned yesterday. I still would like to talk about it, but I'm not going to be sitting here fuming about it any more. It happened, it's done, being angry isn't going to change anything.

And as for walking, I'll be ready today at 6pm. One of my coworkers is "sick", so I've been up since 2am, and I want to go to bed early. *yawn*

You are a good person. Sometimes I get mad like that and then just days later I am like, "Okay, I am over that." But, my problem is I have a tendecy to spout off and say hurtful things and then want to take it back and the person who I have hurt isn't so forgiving. Oh well...
As for WOW, I play a lot. The mornings, evenings...just whenever I have time. It is sporadic though because the hours at my job are funky. I can't wait to play with you, we will have a blast. I will put you on my friends list. *hugs from Oklahoma*

Good for you! I really hope that the two of you will be able to work out your differences because I think you both are lovely people and I'd hate to see the two of you warring with one another.

I think it's good that you are at the point where you can forgive and forget as, no matter what, she's family even if it is only by marriage. Your children are her grandchildren and that's never going to change.

Good luck with the other! Sometimes venting is the best we can do.

Good for you!

My mom died just after we reconciled after many years of not speaking.

I can't tell you how glad I was that I just let go of the anger that kept us apart for so many years.

If she had died before we made peace it would have been a hurt i would have jcarried forever.

aww man, i didn't even know there was a little tension between you and Skit going on. I'm glad you're ready to patch it up though. Can't have two of my favorites not on good terms.

Besides, if you're not talking to someone that's one less gift at Christmas!

Uugghh, I'm so ashamed of my shallowness ;)

Of course I remember. Like you, though, I want the family together. I missed you! ♥
