To be fair to my siblings, I asked her to keep track of what she is spending on me and to deduct it from any inheritance I may (or may not) receive. She told me that she doesn't intend to leave anything behind and that how she chooses to spend her money is up to her. She also said she paid for the trip she took to Vancouver with my sister. Okay, my guilty feelings are assuaged a little.
The best part of this whole thing? My Mom is not my Mom, she's my friend. She tells all her friends at Curves that she doesn't have kids any more...she has friends. It's true. I'll be traveling with my closest friend. After all, she carried me for nine months. You can't get much closer than that.
Oh, for the record, I want to be able to put two moods on this entry. I want to show "excited" and "thankful".
