The monkeys' and I are in San Francisco for a quick trip to visit my parents and friends. Of course, the big monkey is sick on this trip (she has a bladder infection). I absolutely dread my parents seeing one of my monkeys sick!
My mother is acting like this is the biggest deal in the world! As if, somehow, I did not take good enough care of her grandchild, and so she got sick. She actually had the gall to tell me that this was serious, and that I need to keep an eye on it! Um, lady, I took her to the doctors office, got antibiotics for her, and am giving her cranberry juice to drink. DOES IT SOUND LIKE I'M NOT TREATING THIS SERIOUSLY?!?!??!
Tonight she asks the monkey if we make her home made, fresh cranberry juice at home?? "No, well then your mother must not love you as much as I do." OK - fine. She didn't really say the italicized part. But you know she was thinking it!
Of course, as much as I complain about my parents, there is the positive (even though it's not as much fun to blog about). I woke up to being asked what I wanted for breakfast. And in the afternoon, my mom and uncle took the monkeys' to the park for a couple of hours which enabled me to take a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day!
Sigh! Sometimes it's nice to be taken care of by mom and dad!
FYI - I absolutely LOVE Russian Complements, NOT! My uncle, upon not seeing me for a couple of months, takes one look at me and says your face has put on some weight! WTF?!?!?!?!?! In what world is that a complement, except in some backwards Russian mind?? Really?! Argh!!
