So I just had to get this off my chest and I know my Mom didn't mean it the way I took it. She's an awesome Mom and would never do/say something to intentionally hurt me. My Dad has been working some weird shifts at work lately...4pm-6am type of shift and my Mom and I were talking (we talk every day 2-3 times a day) and she was saying how she was fed up seeing him for a half hour when he comes home then he goes to sleep until he wakes up for his next shift. She said "it's kind of like we're going through a deployment too" and laughed. I just sat there on the phone not knowing what to say to that. I made some excuse and got off the phone with her but the more I sat there and replayed that line in my head the more steamed I got!
Again, I know she didn't mean it to be hurtful, but really? Sorry ladies, just had to get that one out of my system!
