I just got back from visiting my mom. She lives with my sister (19 years old) and my brother (15 years old). My dad only lives there on the weekends. He works 4 hours away, so he rents an apartment in the city of his work during the week.
Well, I am very disappointed in how they are all living. My brother and sister were both drinking beer. When my mom threw a bbq and went out to buy some beer, she asked my brother what kind he wanted.
Then, I took my brother and sister out for ice cream and we were talking. They told me that they both smoke pot with our mom. :eek: They also said that they are growing pot in the attic, with our mother’s approval.
When I left this morning, I realized a few streets away, that my mom’s wallet was in my car. I turned around to take it back. I walked in the house and through to the back yard. (no, I didn’t knock. I’m not expected to at my mom’s house) When I got to the backyard, my mom and siblings were back there smoking a joint. :eek:
I was just so shocked to learn that this is happening. My mom was never like that when I was growing up. And it really hurt to see them smoking so quickly after I left. I felt like they couldn’t wait to get rid of me because I was cramping their style. (I know my family is always glad to see me, but I have no control over my emotions. That is just how I FELT)
I am so disappointed in them. Now, I know that they would never, ever do any of these things in front of me or my children. However, my mom likes to take my kids for a week each during the summer to visit. I don’t think I will be comfortable with this, just knowing what their lifestyle is.
I suppose I am just ranting, because I am so disappointed and appalled.
