Mom and Me

Guest written by our friend Mason Abbott

My mom is always in my business and she just doesn’t trust me to make my own decisions. I love her to death but she’s always nagging me about looking into reliant vs TXU and painting the front steps and not calling her after 11 pm. I don’t know why in the world she feels like as a 30 year old woman I’m not capable of handling myself but I think it has something to do with the fact that I live a little closer than I would like to to my family. When I went away to college I gained all this freedom that I relished but being back home in Texas has put me a bit closer to them than I’d like. I wish we could all spend time together without getting into fights but I just feel like my mom and sometimes even the rest of my family don’t treat me like the adult I am. There’s nothing I can’t handle on my own without their overbearing guidance!
