Well, now it looks as if the rain has finally begun. I like the rain. I like to listen to it as I fall asleep. Maybe because I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, the rain is a comforting and familiar thing. Of course, I enjoy it from inside my cozy, well-heated house. The rain here is different, too. This rain means business. Seattle rain is more just a part of the scenery, background weather, most of the time.
So, Thanksgiving set off a malestrom of conflict regarding my sister being a lesbian. My mom just can't seem to get over it. And I can't get over it that she can't get over it. I think she is a little crazy. Ultimately, I think it has absolutely shit to do with the fact that my sister likes girls. I think it has to do with the fact that my mom feels on the outside, she wasn't brought in on it. So, having been placed on the outside, now she's going to make it all about her and how she thinks it's wrong and bad and she just can't accept it. She can't stand the fact that my sister shut her out instead of coming to talk to her and making her a confidant. No wonder, though.
People like my mom are the ONE REASON I would even think twice if one of my girls or both of them turned out to be lesbians. I would fear for them in what they would have to face from people like her. I so don't get it.
In other news, I have a busy week planned. I have an oral presentation due on prostitution(heh heh sluts are cool) in my human rights class. I am going to lovely Esparto to see a client on Thursday. I may even get to do a little Vacaville outlet shopping for Christmas gifts on the way home. Who wants a bag of belly flops for Christmas? I need to get in as much riding as possible before the show on Sunday. I'll be showing Apollo in a little hunter/jumper show at Spring Downs on Sunday. Woo hoo!
I can't believe it's going to be December in a couple of days. Holy crap!
