Sundays seem to be my mom's day to try to figure everything out. She will call me like 4 times. Thankfully it's not every Sunday! It doesn't make for a very relaxing day when my phone is ringing all day, that's for sure and I'm repeating myself over and over.
I talked to her Sat morning to let her know dd's birthday was coming, up if she wanted to send her a check for a gift. She didn't think she had her address (of course she does) so I gave it to her again. It sounded like she was going to get off the phone with me, write the check and get it in the mail yesterday. She also asked me when DH's birthday was, as she couldn't remember when (June).
This afternoon she calls and says "are you going to be seeing DS for his birthday?" Um....no..it's DD's birthday coming up. His was last month (I didn't bother reminding her he still doesn't talk to us). She says oh ok, I knew someones was coming up, so I'd better get her a check in the mail. I'm not sure I have her address. I said oh, we talked about her birthday yesterday and I gave you her address, not sure if you wrote it in your address book or just on a piece of paper on your desk?. Then she found it. Then she says is it DH's birthday? No...it's dd's. I think I had to tell her like 6 times in this conversation it was DD's birthday next week. Supposedly they have greeting cards available downstairs she can take one so she was going to look for a birthday card there. Of course she can't find her stamps.....of course someone took them......
Then she called back that there were no good cards downstairs so she's just going to put a note in with the check. I said that is great. DD knows she can't get out. Then she starts in again about her bank accounts. I had to remind her again that I gave her a new check register to use with her new account transactions so far written in. Who knows where she put it.
So, dd is either going to get 2 checks, one check or no check......and DH will probably end up with one LOL.
