I spent most of my life after my sisters were born walking on eggshells around my mother. I never knew what was going to set her off. Though most of the time it didn’t involve me doing anything. I was always afraid. Afraid of the explosion. Going from quiet monster to raging bull running down … Continue reading Walking On Eggshells
Growing up, I was constantly being accused of things I didn’t do. Didn’t matter if I wasn’t anywhere near the area or my mother had seen one of my sisters do the actual deed, I was at fault. I heard it for years. Yes, I suppose it’s one of the downsides of being the oldest … Continue reading I Didn’t Do Anything Wrong
