thanx for the props tamar.
i don't feel guilty for standing my ground with her, but i feel guilty all around. i think i cut cuz of guilt. it's weird cuz if she's in one of her angry moods i have no problem standing up to her, but her guilt/tears gets to me and i HATE that!
it's hard to change patterns. and it doesn't help at ALL that she lives within a mile from our house.
i do feel good that i called and said no.
one less pressure for me this weekend.
thanks
b2c.
