Well there is nothing that can be considered Finally. is there?
I always knew life is like a circle and at some stage you do end up where you left. Nah, not started..where you left.
My mom has moved in with me and with that my world has changed totally, absolutely, certainly and completely.
When one become a parent one would not think of the future where your children will divide you. My mother certainly never thought and never imagined that her children would one day decide her future.
My sisters had enough of her meddling ways and are keen to send her to an old age home.
So she is with me.
Before she came, my life was very organized.
I had friends for coffee most evening after school.
Friends of my children came over to my house every day.
My pots and pans were exactly where I kept them.
Now my friends are hesitant to come to my place. ( My mom won’t even say Hi to my friends and when they ask her something, she pretends she didn’t hear them)
She stand next to the my kids’ friends when they are having cookies that I baked for them, so they won’t eat more than one cookie.
My children’s friends are scared to come over and play at my place.
She helps me by putting my pots and pans away from the dish washer and I spend the better part of the morning hunting for the spatula, cutting board etc etc. I had told her many times that I will put the dishes away. But she does wake up before me and she wants to help me. ( I have no intention of waking up at 4 AM!)
So here I am.. trying to be a daughter, when all I want is to run far far far away.
But the love that I have for her will not let me.
