The bottom line is fear

Lately I am afraid of spending time with some of my family members. I guess it's the small minded comments that I don't want to have to contend with. For instance, I don't want to get into a conversation about whether gay people should be allowed to marry. I know that some of the people I am related to have opinions on this matter that make me want hurl something at their heads. How does it affect you I want to shout at them. Why should you even care if two people want to get married? Or parenting. I just had a baby about a year ago. Every body knows everything about raising a child and they want to share it with you. I may be new at being a mom, I wish I could scream, but I'm not new to earth! Thanks for the obvious advice Aunt Janet!

I guess I'm most afraid of what will come out of my mouth in reaction to some of these irritating things that come out of the mouths of my relatives.

The End
