It really was but Unless God really shoves it down my throat that I am suppose to open back up its forever. At least with my mom its forever. and its sooo funny I was SO unbelievably close to her, we probably talked a million times a day until we relocated in 2006(about the time things got much worse with her) I just realized how crazy manipulative she was. My absolute LAST straw with her was when she tried to say my 2nd DD wasnt hubbys all b/c she was mad she wasnt called to drive to VA(where we were living at the time) to be apart of the delivery. Now if you knew previous incidents you would totally get why she wasnt called but I Put my foot down and pull my big girl panties alittle tighter when someone comes in between or messes with hubby/my babies/my money and I was just DONE. Have had no relationship with her since but in all honesty the relationship was done in 2006 when we moved and her manipulative games started. It wasn't healthy for me or my oldest DD and shes never going to change or stop being the victim. Its sad for me when I see friends and thier moms and thier kids with their mom etc but i know im doing the right thing, it took me a long time to accept it and make peace with it but i wont allow her to do to my kids what she did to me.

I love heavy metal music, hate my entire family except my kids, and I have an IQ of 152 (Stanford-Binet) but I don't like people around me to know about it.
I took an "official" IQ test years back, in my 20's and mine was 142, I think it was. I forget exactly now. The older of my two younger bro's is higher too....and I load trucks and he digs ditches for the gas company, LOL. My mom says we wasted our intelligence.
