and i feel no different than i did before the call voicemail (phone died, so i didn't get far into the message). is that odd? back in the day, i'd go stay with her during the summer because she lived within the walls of a country club. yadda (alcoholism, treating her kids bad, seperating herself from the family) yadda...her and my mom had a big argument, and we haven't heard from her in a good 8 - 10yrs. during that time, she's pulled off some stupid **** (new from my cousin). off to go try and get in touch with my mom.
