My mom and step-father are going through a stupid, retarded, utterly
DUMB divorce (this crap all lays at his feet, and I'm not just saying that because she's my mom). My step-father has 180ed and become some sort of unreasonable beast, who now has some unsavory traits. My mom has some stuff she wants me to have, and she's stated that she wants me and my husband to come get it ASAP (she recently had hardcore surgery and can't bring/send it herself) and part of the reason it's a priority is because she's afraid he might try to sabotage (some of) it in order to get back at her through me or something. Childish, yes; unheard of, no.
Anyways, I bought her a nice handbag not too long ago with the intention of sending it to her so she could have a pick me up in this time of woe and financial crappery. Then she said not to buy it for her, to save my money and all that. I got it for her anyways because I found it on sale for only $80ish. I've been hemming and hawing as it is about sending it to her now, when she's depressed, or saving it for her for Christmas as a big surprise. But now, with her thoughts about my step-father's current mentality, I'm more at a loss. It's probably the only bag worth $100+ she'll ever have in her whole life because those sorts of things don't matter to her, if that's important to know.
Should I send my mom her handbag now, or save it for later?
NOW NOW NOW!!!1!!
After while, crocodile!
PS - If you're curious why I bought my mom a sort of expensive handbag when she told me not to and doesn't care about it, it's because A) after I asked her if she'd like it and sent her pics, she asked about it later which made me think she would like to have it and B) it's a Dooney & Burke bag with bees all over it and her name is Bea - I always buy her bee stuff, LOL!ETA
: I did not mean to imply all things gay = stupid, for the man in question is straight and clearly a dumb ass. My apologies for my horrible misuse of the word in this context.
