^That sucks about declining old jaunts.
Its weird dealing with my mom now... she's funnily turned essentially into an internet troll - just courting drama even with texts. I'm not sure how to even deal with new found mommy issues going into my mid 30's.
The part that makes me want to pull my hair out is the expectation to give straight cash to my "cousins in need". They are all basically very rich recently with my parent's older siblings dying in the past decade - they sold off all the inherited lands and are rolling in cash. Its just that my mom likes the idea of giving them money. I don't mind paying for things like school tuitions, medical insurance, seed money for small businesses - as long as its organized - but straight cash into bank accounts? fuck that i know that will go straight to uselessness. I might as well just set money on fire.
