Well, mom moved out and it was a pretty difficult day emotionally.
I was doing okay until it was time to go and mom awkwardly motioned for hugs. This is the second time in my life that it seemed like she wanted a hug from me. She is not physically demonstrative. I considered ignoring it only for a split second. I do have a heart, afterall. But, the heart breaker was when mini-me would not let her go and just started SOBBING. At the same time, the Other Daughter (mom's) brought me my purse from the other room and I'm all like "don't touch my stuff THIEF" in my head, but couldn't speak due to the drama unfolding at the door.
No matter if you're 10 or 38, it still hurts when your mom blatantly chooses another sibling over you. Even if you should be quite used to it by now.
