Dad is now in the nursing home for the next 20 days and he loves to guilt trip my mom. He actually made her cry this morning. Knowing how he is, I knew he'd act out and I wasn't there to help her, I decided to buy flowers for Mom.
I can't be there right now to help out. But I can try to cheer her up. Unfortunately I had to call mom to let her know in advance when the flowers will arrive. Glad I did call because she won't be home all day for the arrival. Hoping that the flowers won't freeze and she'll get them in the house in time. Luckily FTD guarantees their flowers so if they do freeze she'll get a replacement bouquet.
Oh and I did remember that she has plenty of vases so I didn't order one with. Mom was happy to hear that too. She said she was thinking about bringing all her old vases down to a local flower shop just to have more room in the house. Before I moved she pawned about ten vases off on me too.
Much as I complain about how my parents aren't good parents they are decent people. Some people just shouldn't be allowed to raise children. As an adult my parents treat me much they same as they did when I was a child but now I know when to draw the line and just walk away.
