Unhappy Grandma is driving me on the crazy train - December 25th 2009, 03:53 PM

This is one of the hardest things for me to deal with. She is an empty nester in denial. Every time I am in the kitchen, passing the kitchen, or looking in the fridge thinking about what i want, she suggests something that is either on the stove or stored as leftovers. I tried to get her not to, it is driving me absolutely insane for several minutes each time she does it and as much as I love my grandmother and want her to be happy I cannot say "sure ok i will have that" because honestly, i want to make my own food no matter what is left over or on the stove. ..help meee..

Hi there,

I understand that your grandmother is frustrating you by giving suggestions as to what you should eat, but consider where she's coming from with this. From her point of view, she is only trying to help you out, and if there are leftovers, then really why not eat them? I suppose it is a way of killing two birds with one stone. You are looking for something to eat and there is something that needs to be eaten.

But at the same time I know that you want to make your own food, and there is nothing wrong with that. I know you've tried telling your grandma already, but it sounds like you need to tell her again. Just let her know that you want to make your own food and you aren't in the mood for leftovers. You may need to remind her a few times, but once it becomes a habit, she'll stop asking.

I hope you are able to sort this out.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
