    Gut, Look to the positive! Could be your mom's judgement is a little off. Could be a relative snafu'd the deal. Could be your mama found out all of us were moving there for our retirement and she couldn't handle it! Take some time to see what YOU want to really do, then go for it! You know we got your back!!

    On another topic....has anyone had any experience with/heard of experiences with a steam mop? I'm thinking about spending about $100.

    Wow, Gut, I don't know what to say, but everyone's given you some great advice. I'm sorry that this happened to you, but again, better to know now than once you got moved, settled in and got a job.

    And I wouldn't address it in an email. I can't believe your mother did. This is phone or face to face stuff, not email type stuff.

    I wish you the best of luck. If the past 3 months has taught me anything, it is to wait a while before saying anything and to just be open to what the universe is trying to tell you.

    I've learned not only to never have a conversation when I am newly upset, but to wait a little while until after I think I've calmed down...and then wait a little longer...to get into discussion.

    Gut - I agree with everyone telling you to wait a bit to talk to your mother. In this situation, I'd just sit down and write a letter, saying EVERYTHING I'm feeling...and then not send it. That way, you get out all your thoughts and frustrations, but you don't say anything you can't take back. Plus, it may help you get your thoughts together when you do talk to your mother.

    Exactly! Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse.

    I can remember 'scripting' things out.

    wow, Gut, that is shocking. You've had great advice here, don't have anything to add to that. You are in my prayers as you resolve this situation.

    Mixed reviews from me. Great on the bathroom floors. Not great in the kitchen where there is more "mess" that really needs water and soap.
    Doesn't do well on tile - dries very blotchy.

    I've always dreamt of furnishing my living space from an import shop. Now's my chance! I'll need all new everything. Yay!
    Count your blessings!

    prhoshay - I bought the 'Shark' steam mop. I still think the old mop and bucket is a more thorough clean.
