Ok he is so sweet and talkative, but she acts different with me. He is gone for the weekend and so I'm doing her meals. When my husband does breakfast she waits in her bed like a queen until he brings coffee and breakfast. This weekend with me (and times before) she will get up and get coffee and wait at the table for breakfast. Before she has even gotten dressed.
She pretends she doesn't like being so helpless and comments how she wishes she could help around house or when we have family over. Yet she doesn't lift a finger to do anything. She makes comments about sweeping her floor herself when I do her room and bedding each week. There is always evidence that she didn't do her floor or that she just swiped it for there is still that creepy granulated dust she is flaking from her skin.
Is it "me" and not her? I don't talk much to her since the conversation is likely to go to sending a check to my brother. So I just don't talk to her much. She has started calling me Pat. Mom rarely used my name before. This is a lot of rambling so forgive me for not being able to articulate my question properly. How do I not resent my mom because she is nice to everyone else? I feel it is because I (as her Trustee) won't allow her to send money to my brother.
