My mom is running away again, to the other side of the country this time. This will be the fourth time in my 21 year lifetime. This time she is taking my littlest sister. She is going to miss my wedding. I wish she would stop doing drugs. I wish she would stop hanging around with potential rapists. I wish she would start being my mother. One time when she was really drunk she told me all about her travels. She shouldn't take my sister with her. She's a total basketcase, she has good reason to be, but I wish that she could look past her own problems and see that she has a family under her protection and she's doing a crappy job of it.
