The first week...

January 5th, 2008 (11:29 pm)

current location: Montana
current mood: cranky
current song: BoyslikeGirls - HeroHeroine

Couldn't really sleep the night before of course so bounced out of bed at 5:00am to wake my roommate so that we could get to the airport on time. A lot of hurry up and wait but I got on the plane with minimal fuss and had a few long flights till I got in right at 11:30pm. Had a lot of people to meet me at the airport and hugged and shook hands up until I got up to my girlfriend then nearly football tackled her.

Left the airport with my girlfriend and her mother to go join a couple others from her family nearby and celebrate the New Year. They took me to a country bar and there was a bit of WTF before I found out that the karaoke wasn't just all country. around 1:30am the lights flickered as a really terrible singer came up(it wasn't me ;)), we just blamed his singing and continued drinking until they closed. Then we started walking out of the bar and saw some police cars. Didn't think much of it until we saw a power pole bent half way...and then the upside down, smashed up, car behind the pole. Was quite the way to end the night, the car landed less then a hundred feet from where we were sitting in the bar. Didn't hear a thing when it happened.

The coming days were pretty good as I spent time with my girlfriend and some friends. Then thursday came and I went down to visit my mother at her house after spending some time with my cousin. Trouble ensues...

Told my cousin that I had planned to go to the state capital with my girlfriend later that week. He decided to try and invite himself so he talks to my grandmother about convincing my mother to have me invite him along. My mother begins to argue with me about how much time I spend with my girlfriend when I come back on leave. I point out the fact that I had sent a scedule two months prior asking everyone to let me know if any plans needed to be made. Even after showing my mother the email I had sent her, which she refused to even look at, the arguing continues. My mother also makes some unkind comments toward both my girlfriend and her family because they have tried to make the effort to plan things were both families can get together but my mother, for some reason she will not disclose to me, doesn't want anything to do with. Her reasoning is that, since I am not married to Jen that she has no reason to get to know her family.

Of course both my mother and my girlfriend have been at odds before and they both say that I am being controlled by the other and that the other person is trying to drive a wedge into the relationship. I've told them both that they need to talk to each other but it's like trying to get Israel and Syria to be friends. My physical distance from both of them for most of the year isn't conducive to getting them together and working out the issues so I've given them both the task to work it out without my assistance. Time will see if anything happens but I will hope for the best. If I come back and the situation hasn't gotten better I may be forced to resolve it my own way and I doubt either of them will be happy with it.

One more week to go! Will our hero come out on top, stay tuned...

I believe that sarge is old enough to make his own decisions and should be able to choose where and who he wants to be with.

Tell them to get along or neither of them are going to get any ice cream!

Wow, poor guy. Listen to reason? What's that?

What a shame though. Hopefully you can come to some sort of peace agreement between the two.
