My parents do not read my blog. They never have and if my father had his way they never would. You see my father believes that reading my blog will give him a virus. Well, not him, his computer. He will barely do a google search these days.
So, needless to say they most of the time do not know what I discuss on my blog. At the same time that in no way means that I am saying things on my blog that I have already said to them, especially to my mother.
My mother and I have a wonderful, but different mother/daughter relationship. She is one of my best friends and I am one of hers. It has been this way for a very long time. It may not be something that I would recommend to others, but for us it has worked out in the end.
I think this partially due to the fact that we are someone alike…well a lot alike. I love her very very much and am so proud of her. She is a strong woman. We have the ability to say exactly what we feel and know if we smush each other it is completely on accident.
She gives me a hard time about my free spirit sometimes and I give her a hard time about the loss of hers. We have a wonderful relationship. So, I guess I am writing this to ease any worries that anyone has about me possibly disrespecting my parents. To sum it up…we don’t function any where close to a normal family, but that is so ok with us!
***Just a reminder…I am almost to my 100th blog and would love to answer your questions. Keep sending them in!
