If my mom just bought less food, she’d spend less money, she would (supposedly) have to cook less and less often so she’d be less tired and we’d have less leftovers all the time, and I wouldn’t have to fear for my life each time I try to open the fridge. I mean, we have our own garden now so she really doesn’t need to buy so much stuff anymore anyways.
But no. She has this constant need to over-provide for us.
And I get it, I do. She doesn’t want for us to want. She wants us to live comfortably.
But we constantly have dinner so late and there’s always so much food and I still feel disgustingly full. Not happily full. Not even just really full. This is like “FUCK WHY DIDN’T I STOP UGH KILL ME TAKE MY STOMACH I NEVER WANT TO EAT AGAIN”. And she’s always tired and occasionally complains about being so tired from cooking for us and us saying there’s too much food and how we don’t appreciate her taking the effort to cook for us.
Next time, I should just forget about making my mom butt-hurt and just stop when I’m full instead of forcing myself to finish everything.
PS, let me try and put this into perspective for you guys. She generally goes to Costco to buy groceries. Still not seeing it? Okay, how about: She goes to Costco EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK. Not every month. Not even every other week. Every single week.
Oh, and occasionally, if there’s a good sale on something, she’ll stop by Safeway in the middle of a week.
