My mom likes to meddle in my life, but I usually don’t mind. I know she means well, so I just take everything she says with a grain of salt. Most of the time she likes to give me unsolicited advice that I don’t take, but sometimes she offers up some useful nuggets of information. The other day she recommended I go to www.directstartv.com to switch from cable to Directv, which actually saved me some money. She also gives me great cleaning tips and tricks, like using salt and lemons to get out stains from my wooden cutting boards. When it comes to her meddling, I have decided not to get worked up and angry about it, and just take the good along with the bad. I already know her dating advice is outdated, so I still do my own thing, and just let her think she is helpful. I think all parents do this to some degree, and what is the point of worrying about it? They only want to be involved in our lives and help us do our best. I would hate to upset her for no good reason.
