Seriously...

Currently I am trapped in front of the computer, waiting for the precise moment that Southwest will allow my mother to check in to her flight. The earliest you can do it is 24hrs in advance, and she insists that she be logged in as soon as possible so she can get Her Seat. She wants a particular seat, in section A, and Lord forbid that I don't log in in time to get her into section A. The one time we were out, supposedly doing something fun, she was pissed all the way home that we weren't at home at the 24hr mark. She starts talking about it, reminding me, first thing in the morning, and it doesn't stop until the minute I print the freakin' thing out.

And, today, she's gonna be pissed, because in the three minutes I spent writing this, the 24hr mark passed, and enough people logged in that she's in section B. Here we go.

(She's still rubbing her scaly foot up and down on the edge of my coffeetable, in a different spot this time. I swear, if it wouldn't make such a mess, I would cut that foot right off, and any judge in the world that could see that thing wouldn't blame me.)

Perhaps you could get her a Ped Egg for Easter?

Your time is almost up, you're almost free!

OMG. No time to write for real but the foot scraping on your coffee table?!?! Can you feel my shudders through the computer? I WOULD BE OUT OF MY MIND.

I was sure I left you a comment that is the hideousity that is a visit with my mother to commiserate with you.

Hope you are having a fabulous post weekend rest!

Oh baby... Even people with normal, non-reptilian feet make me nuts when they decide that their BARE feet may come in contact with MY freshly polished oak coffee table. This probably means that I in fact have major control issues, but let's just say I feel your pain.

My mom hasn't been seen for a couple of days now(no big deal- she disappears quite often, to be honest) but I was wondering from your description of her(your mom...)....could YOUR mom and MINE be the same woman leading a double life?????
(Oh and btw- I'm not sure I CAN give the chocolate up....but I'm beginning to think maybe I'm slightly allergic to it- thus the horrid symptoms every time I eat it.....especially when coupled with cola or coffee. We'll see....pray for me to have strength!!!!!)

Love, Love, Love your blogs!!!
