December 24, 2009
I jumped into my dad's car, coming down from a sugar high at work. He told me my brother is coming over for dinner tomorrow at which point I told him our mom was expecting us for pizza or subs. "I'm not inviting her over," he shrugged. "You shouldn't have to," I said, looking out the window.
I know she's been feeling lonely, but..." he said, leaving it at that. Later I called my mom, who became defensive my brother and I weren't eating with her. I decided I'm not taking the bait--every year it's the same thing.
