Last night at dinner, mom asked what time would we eat tomorrow. I said we are going home tomorrow. She said but I planned dinner. She insisted we had planned dinner. Even hubby said I heard her say last month Christmas day dinner was for her and dad. There was never any conversation about having Christmas day dinner with my parents. I even have the email about coming for Christmas eve dinner only and opening gifts. She stopped talking after I said for 3rd time we are not staying for dinner. So after dinner I just went upstairs to bed. This am my husband and I ate breakfast. Mom appeared and said you might as well go home. So we left w/o opening gifts and w/o any of the goodies she baked. Things didn't feel right the moment we walked in yesterday. First we were early. 2nd, I spilled water on her table. 3rd, I stepped on cat's tail. I can't please my mom all the time. My parent's moved to TN in July. She was so excited about having a big family holiday. Thanks for letting me vent.
