RAK

I have been tagged by Survivor to post RAKs, Random Acts of Kindness. Since I don't do anything random (I'm joking), I guess it will have to be with the intent of doing kindness. Anyways, Mitzvos Tzrichos Kavana ;)

1) Offered to help a friend replace his air conditioner in his house.
2) Made a friend a coffee.
3) Said hello to a friend.
4) Smiled when someone cracked a stupid joke.
5) called my mother even though I knew it wouldn't be pleasant.

Thanks for playing along! And thanks for letting me know on my blog that you played along. I'm trying to keep up with the RAK chain, but it's not that easy for me - SDAADD* and all.

My personal favorite is #4. I myself have been the cracker of quite a few stupid jokes, and I always appreciated when people reacted with a smile instead of a groan.

yiddishe Mamme- Where do I begin?! My mommy is so over protective that it makes me sick! She wants to know where I am all the time and thinks she is trying to shield me from the bad bad world. "You are so helpless, she seems to cry everytime she sees me and speaks to me". She is always complaining about everthing I do. She says I never help in the house. She says I have to help her when she asks, not when I want to do what is being asked of me. She is also a certified healthnut and hypocandriac. I don't blame her for wanting to be healthy but give me some suger sometimes. I AM NOT A BABY. I want to live in my own home and make my own money. I want to get married and be an adult. I do NOT need to be mothered all the time. I appreciate what she has done for me but I want to have my own life. I want to be independant. I love her as much as I possibly can but it is time to move on. I love talking to her but she is always complaining about something. She might have a good reason but it gives me a headache. We have nothing in common. This is some of the reasons why I don't like talking to her, but deep down I am a baby and I want her to help me so I do call her up. I am a mamma's boy. :(

I don't know if you'll like this advice, and I'm not so sure that I even like giving it (it's old lady advice) but I'll give it a shot anyway. Feel free to tell me if you don't like what I have to say. The way I see it is that 'bist shoin neinter vee veiter' 'you're already closer than further' - to marriage. Before you know it you'll be married. So try to hold out a little more. I know that I'm way too overprotective, but as much as I try to give my kids more independence, my progress is in baby steps, err, make that newborn steps, premie even maybe. But I would advise you that when that joyous day does come, make sure to set kind but firm limits with your mother so she doesn't impose on your marriage. So what do you think?

Ummmmmm, ummmmmm, :-( *pent up frustration*
I hear it....it makes sense....I'll try to be nice to my mommy, but the more I try, the more she wants to give! My younger sibilings even complain that I get the most attention because I am the oldest. They are upset at ME now. I can't even imagine how much my mother will try to butt into my future marriage *shudder*. I know I shouldn't be ranting like this and I should be appreciative that I have a mother, but better now than later when I'll need her help to babysit *sly smile*.

Well, you definitely have the right idea there. The only reasons I speak to my mother are 1-because I have other siblings still at home who I won't be able to speak to if I don't speak to her. and 2-because I need her to babysit. ;)
