My mom called me tonight, asking me to come visit her for Christmas.

This pretty much illustrates my initial reaction )

However, right now flights are relatively affordable, so that's not a reasonable excuse. And I feel like I might be the worst person in the world to leave her alone over the holiday, so soon after my grandmother's death.

But the last time I visited for the holidays, it was one of the most stressful weeks of my entire life. The whole time, I got about ten minutes to myself -- and that's not an exaggeration. I mean it literally. Other than bathroom breaks and the time I was able to talk her into walking to get something out of the car by herself, she was glued to my side, talking the entire time. She also couldn't go long between drinks or popping pills or taking a hit of pot, which had me on edge the whole time. I spent my entire vacation upset and emotionally exhausted.

What I'd like to do is go to California for Christmas, since I've been invited out there by a friend's family. I could probably go and just not tell her. But with my luck I'll end up getting horribly injured, but not mortally so, on, like, the Winnie-the-Pooh ride at Disneyland. And the hospital will have to call my mom to get permission for a blood transfusion, and she'll know what a horrible daughter I am and martyr it up for the rest of my life.
