I just got a call from my mom...which is normal for every holiday. She always calls to tell me "Happy such and such"...but today, that was followed with, "I'm not cooking this year..i have had it with your dad and his hateful attitude, and I'm going to the beach, to spend Thanksgiving alone! "

I was kinda shocked...she's always cooked dinner. ALWAYS...lol....but I told her to have fun and be safe, and secretly wished I could go to.

She then told me that my brothers were all pissed at her, and all whiney about it. These are 3 grown men with families of their own. I don't know why they are acting like this...my mom NEVER does anything remotely selfish, so I told her to have a great time shopping and drinking wine:)

Again...I wish I had of it first...I heart our beach house:)

 So, you had all planned on going and she backed out today? If that is the case, that is shitty. How is everyone supposed to pull a dinner together last minute?

I would be pretty upset too. Now what are they supposed to do? Run out and buy last pickings for their own make shift dinner?

Be selfish another day.

 Even if she backed out, say, yesterday, I would be able to suck it up and deal. I mean if she gave no notice, I would be pissed. The father pisses her off and the family pays? That is selfish. That is for sure.

lol...by going to the grocery store like any self-sufficient adult and buying food? That would be my guess?
