Offbeat mom

This Article was on CNN's Offbeat News today, but I gotta tell ya...that is OLD NEWS!

My mother did this to us YEARS AGO. It was confusing to get home from the bus-stop one day to find all your belongings thrown in the yard. Unlike the above article, my mom kept herself and her stuff cozy inside. Also unlike the article, Dad was on the "opposite side of the V" in that his stuff was outside with ours. Furthermore, mom never moved into a tent. She stayed inside but made us well aware of the fact that she was cooking meals (but only for herself) washing clothes (but only her own) and only cleaning up after herself. Lesson learned, mom!
