I just found out that I have to visit certain people on the weekend that I may be related to by way of marriage. Just knowing that I have to go there has ruined my day.
This is a little note for them so that the visit can go a little bit more smoothly.
1. I am pretty happy with the way I look, and while I do understand that I am bigger than some I am also smaller than many others and am perfectly healthy. (I eat a healthy vegetarian diet and I exercise everyday - do you? Oh and there is nothing wrong with being a vegetarian either.)
2. I raise my children in the manner I choose to and I really don't care that you think I am an inappropriate role model, I am their mother and a damn good one too. I am teaching my children that creativity is beautiful and that that the world isn't only filled with straight, christian, white people.
3. I am not going to take sides in your ridiculous arguments with people. Your son's girlfriend is a grown woman and does not have to do what you say.
4. LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE.
Thankyou for letting me get that off my chest. Now I will just have to source some valium and I should remain nice and calm for the duration of the visit. Hopefully.
