I have been having a rough couple of weeks trying to cheer my Mom up. I am trying my best, but she just isn't having it!
Apparently, there was some mean and dumb man that my Mom knew a long time ago-like over ten years. He harassed her and her ex-boyfriend for a while but had kind of gone away. Well, now, many years later, he has popped back up again and is bothering her and her family. I told her not to worry, that I'll protect her!
On top of that stress, Mom got called into work a few days ago and told that they were doing something called layoffs. Thank DOG Mom wasn't one being let go, but it felt just as bad...she had to do the "laying off" part to her coworkers. Mom liked both the people, and one supports his wife and newborn baby. She told me it was very difficult for her to have to sit there with these people and tell them the news, and then escort them out. It made her feel very guilty.
I can tell Mom is sad, so I have been an extra love bug towards her. I have been putting my head in her lap when she sits on the couch, and last night I stayed glued to her side. I think she needs me a lot right now.
The good news is, she is on vacation next week (and boy, does she need it). We are making our annual drive to Florida, only this time Dad is coming too. Sunshine and good times, here we come!
