MB, Mom's sometimes have a way of just making us daughters feel like sh*t...

My mom (bless her heart) tends to do that to me at times, though I'm sure it's unintentional. She'll say things like "Your arms are getting a little flabby, you shouldn't be wearing that tank top" (Gee thanks Mom.) Now, my mom is 90 years old, and a whole lot flabbier and heavier than me!! Ummm, ok...

And my job sux, it's boring, I'm underpaid, I hate it, they are taking our pension away (freezing it in 2006) But I'm 51 years old, and there are no jobs in this GOd foresaken town, in fact most pay worse. So, I'm seeing retirement in the horizon, then in about 5 years I'll devote my time and energy to selling antiques and doing Ebay full time. (which I love and can't wait to escape from being a racing rat")
