The fucking YARN FAIRY!

Bleh.  Crappy night's sleep.  Mother issue dreams.  I hate them in general, but they really get under my skin when they turn physical.

I only got in a physical altercation with my mother once (after a lifetime of being backhanded by her).  It was NYE in freshman (or was it sophomore?) year of college, and she was going on and on and on about what a piece of shit my then-boyfriend was, how I'd regret being with him, etc etc etc.  I slapped her; she threw a glass of wine in my face.  I go to the kitchen to get away from her; she follows.  I ended up knocking her across the kitchen.

That was the last time she ever raised a hand to me.  But evidently, I still have a lot of barely repressed anger.

Sadly, she was actually right about the ex.  And he was right about her (that she is a lying, manipulative narcissist with a mean streak a mile wide).

I should have walked away from both of them at 19.  Well, hindsight and all that.

I'm going to go read my super trashy supernatural romance novel to recover.  I found it at our Little Free Library.  I think that's where those novels go to die.  And this one will be going right straight back into circulation when I'm done.

happy Wednesday, y'all!
