But I already ordered them and let her know. (Via text)
I'm concerned that you bought gifts in response to the silent treatment. Does that work? And what would happen if you send them back or cancel the order?

Re: Moooom - arg

I'm getting better at telling mom "No" and sticking to it.

Her cellphone is lost/misplaced and she's in rehab. I'm currently mailing out birthday & Easter cards for her. (There is a phone in her room, but she can canjust make local calls)

Tonight, she asked me to make birthday phone calls for her. I said "no", and when she aggressively questioned why I wouldn't do it, I let her know it wasn't up for debate.

She dropped it.

Oh, no, where's her cell phone? Does it have tracking on it so you can find it?

It didn't have tracking and got misplaced between the hospital & rehab center.

She has now agreed to paying for a new phone & I picked it up today.

I have tracking on this one. I've let the entire family know. I'm currently adding her contacts (wish she'd had backup).


I got got a phone call from one of my nieces asking for Grandma's phone number!
