I'm having an ee cummings moment.
I'm laughing like a buddha right now. My belly is that big, too.
I ate a gigantic hamburger (It was SO good) and had a beer for lunch. Mom likes burgers.
I truly enjoy my Mother.
I love her, but my least favorite habits manifest when I'm with her. I overeat, over spend, get irritable. I know it's not her fault. My actions can not be someone else's fault.
Right now, I'm happy. I'm happy for many reasons; one is noticing that I tend resort to "bad" habits when with Mom.
