Not quite "urge to kill" but close

So as those of you who follow me in That Other Social Media Site now, I got a new haircut. To mid-back, slightly layered, oval. My mom asked to see it, and to e-mail it to her because she deactivated her FaceBook account for Lent.

I sent it to her, and remember, everyone who has seen the photo says I look totally cute.

She wrote back, "Do you have rosacea? Your face looks really red in that photo." Nothing about my hair.

Not awfully happy with her right now.

Okay, so I know she's your mother, but this comment is bursting to emerge from my fingers: it's too bad she couldn't deactivate her critical nature for Lent instead.

Besides, you looked HAPPY in that picture and isn't that what counts????? Sheesh!!!!!

I'm tempted to say that it's not rosacea, just my alcoholism.

Nah. Let that temptation dissipate. If you said it, you'd just be opening a much bigger can of worms. You don't want her to pay even greater attention to EVERYTHING you do.

The Blonde speaks wisdom. I will abide by this, because you are right.

Your mom is full of shit. That's a really cute picture of you. Sometimes I wonder if we aren't related.

I was going to suggest that she, too might have a momonster.

Long-lost sister is a bit more fun, except for the fact that we look nothing alike and were born in different geographical regions. ;)

Yeah, maybe she's your Fake Big Sister. I take pride in being Patrick's. ;)

I'm sorry your mom said that about you. I have a mom who can be like that sometimes. It sucks balls. I'm sure your haircut looks awesome.

It looks really nice. I like the softening effect of the hair! It sort of has a layered effect that way.

Cindy layered it and flat-ironed it. My curl is back this morning.

Oh man... I hate that. Parents are too damn critical.

It looks great!

Conversations like that with me mother lead me to read this book and then give it to her to read:

Honey, you're gorgeous. Hugs. Your mother needs some social skills.

AAAAAHHH! So sorry she said that!

And, for the record, your glasses really look good with your hair.

Like I said before, the hair looks great and so do you. My mom was like that too. My sister and I have spent hours comparing horror stories, only to find out she was asking both of us why we weren't more like the other one. Sad part is we not only resented her for what she said but we resented each other for being her favorite. Now we know better - guess she didn't like either of us much - heehee

high-five on the layering! I also gave layers a whirl recently at the encouragement (and skills) of my brother, figuring I'll let him try, and it'll grow back if I don't like it, and was pleasantly surprised at the softening effect.

Looks good on you! You don't post a lot of photos of yourself, and I'm always struck by what a handsome woman you are.

Me too. Why does your mom have to be such a [insert vile Russian insult here]?
