The other day my mother (advanced PD) who is taking care of me financially so that I can take care of her always wants to buy me "everything" except the home agency care that I want. The other day she told me that she's tired of seeing me in sweats and sweatshirts and she wants to buy me outfits. (I always tell her to save her $$$ for home care). The other day I took it a step futher and told her why buy me clothes since they'll sit in the closet since I don't go anywhere. But mom informed me that I am in a rut and need new clothes so that I can go out with her and her friends to lunch more. Gee, and I thought what might get me out of my rut was seeing my boyfriend who I left 800 miles behind and see from rarely to very seldom might get me out of my rut but mom let me know that I just need to spend MORE time with her and to throw her friends in the mix. Who know? Don't know whether to laugh or cry!
