So my mom is normally really chill about the fact that I live about 400 miles away from “home”. She sees me when she sees me (about once every 2-3 months) and is okay with that. No problems. She’s not clingy and she doesn’t give any guilt about it at all. She has alot going on in her own life and it super involved in things, being on various church boards, being in a bunco group, and lots and lots of friends to keep her occupied, not to mention taking care of my dad (who might melt if he went into a grocery store!). However, the last 2 weeks I’ve been getting a text message about every 3-4 days asking me what DAY I’m coming home for Christmas. I’ve generally blown them off cause I didn’t know, my work schedule is busy around the holidays and i wasn’t sure how much time I could get off.
Well, I was at work yesterday and she sends me one. I’m a little weirded out so I write her back and say “what in the world is wrong with you? Why are you so anxious about this?!” and she writes back “I just miss you. And I’m anxious about you coming home”…what in the world? I realize that she wants me to come home, but it’s not like knowing EXACTLY what day I’m coming home is going to make it much easier. It’s still about 15 days away!

Maybe it’s because she knows this will be your last Christmas as a single gal. Next Christmas, you’ll be someone’s wife, not just her daughter. IDK, maybe I’m reading too much into it!

Hmmmm yeah maybe she’s having a mini freak out. I thought my mom was A-OK then had a few mini freak outs about me over the last year, including after the wedding….or maybe your SO is planning something?

I’m with ejs…maybe your FI is planning something, and she can’t wait to find out if she’ll be able to see a new pet rock (using your words hehe).

Is she menopausal? I acted a bit strange when I was going through it and cried at nothing and had weird dreams about everything! Have you actually spoken with her other than texts? Can you hear anything in her voice? Is everything OK on the homefront with your Dad?
I was missing having someone home to take care of and went and got a puppy!

If Mr. KM is planning something for Christmas, I’ll be seriously, seriously surprised.
A) He knows I HATE surprises. I don’t even like to watch a movie where I don’t know the ending.
B) We haven’t been ring shopping so he has no idea what I like. Heck, I don’t even know what I like!
C) The CD he plans on using to buy my ring he moved back the maturement date by 3 months, which means January.
Everything at home is fine, my parents have a really good marriage. Really I think she’s just being sad about me getting married next year. But still, it’s so very unlike her that it’s unnerving!

first thing i thought was omg A has something planned for Christmas, followed closely with, mom just wants to spend as much time with her single daughter as she can because this is the last year where you’ll be her little girl. next year you’ll be a married woman… (how cool is that?!)

Wow the ending movie part is kinda crazy….I hate finding out how the movie ends before watching it.
Maybe your mom has plans of her own and doesn’t want to just tell you “hey can you come a day later so I can do ……” you know maybe she just wants to make sure she is with you once you get there. Just tell her when you are coming or tell her you are not sure yet when and that as soon as you find out she will be the first one to know.

Oh I told her yesterday when I’m going down. It just seems so very weird to me. Kinda freaking me out a little bit.

my mom isn’t acting super weird, just super mushy lately…. i think she’s sort of realizing too that her girls have grown up. my sister’s boyfriend should be coming to her house for christmas as well as M and she’s soo cute lately…
