Serously, just had huge fight with mother about how I don't want to have a relationship with her because I won't go out to dinner with her at night. And if I do make plans, I often break them. So now i just don't make them and she just doesn't understand. I do work, easy-ish job, only 30 or so hours a week (I think, I should clock myself). I know the next sentence will not match the first sentences but… I run a mid size company that allows me to be flexible in my work hours. So I come in late if I need to sleep, I work Saturdays and Sundays if I go home early on the week days. My mom seems to think I work tooo much and I am chosing work over socializing. Its when I finally get home, I need to rest. Ughhhhh WTF does anybody have a good current book that she could learn from?
