"Mom, you didn't say that?"

First I have to say, I really wish I was a writer, I have all these things about me and my life I would love to get out onto this blog. I think my lack of skills and confidence hold me back. I don't want to sound like I'm rambling on.
(ya know, like I am now) But here I go anyway.....

I will try to make a long story , short.. About 12yrs ago in 1997 my husband and I moved back to New York (near the town where I grew up) so he could take a full time job on Wall Street doing his Audio/Visual techie crap. I was so happy to be back on my "turf" , around my friends and family. I got a job as a secretary in a very large Orthopedics office. It took some getting used to, and after much moving around the office at different positions, I landed working for the "Pain Management" Dr. He had a very different personality as me, but we got along very well. He just wanted things done his way, and as long as I did that we were "good". In 2000, I got pregnant with my youngest son and my husband's job got moved back to CT. It was hard for me to leave the job, family and friends again.
While I worked at the office , my mom became a patient of the Dr I was the secretary for. She still sees him to this day as needed. She has been having back issues and had a visit with him last week for some shots. After she came home from her appointment, she called me and said "Tina, you have to go visit Nick" ( yeah, we had cool dr's that they let us call them by their first names) "every time I go in, he asks how you are doing" Which I think is so sweet, considering I have been gone for almost 10yrs now. So I said to her " awww... I will have to take a ride down one of these days and have lunch with all my old friends" To which she says, " yeah, I tell him you are a really good mom, with two really great kids but that you have a really hard life".
WHAT, you said WHAT?....... omg, how freakin embarrassing! " Mom, you didn't say that, did you?" Guess I WON'T be going back there for lunch anytime soon....
Thanks Mom, Love you too..
