Mommy vs Grandma

Sunday, Jan 7, 1945

With snow piling up outdoors and everyone confined inside, tension is beginning to build. In fact, it has been brewing for a while between Mommy and Grandma. As Mommy wrote today, “I’m quite ready to leave Bridgeport. My mother is grinding me down. It is amazing how quickly and naturally she has unloaded all her household responsibilities onto my shoulders, including a lot of things she always neglected. I don’t mind the work but it gets my cork. I only hope she doesn’t expect Pa to do it for her after I’m gone. Honestly, she hasn’t even made coffee since I’ve been here, let alone wash dishes. I’ve even done the family wash. Yessir, I’m quite content to set out for Denver.”
