I wrote about our drive there a couple days ago. Today it’s time to write about the visit itself. Overall it was a beautiful, really fun day filled with laughter! It’s been about 15+ years since I’ve really spent any time with A. Needless to say a whole bunch of catching up to do! She remembers stories about my exes and family that I’d blocked … Continue reading Visit with my SIL
A few days after Christmas I got a call out of the blue from my brother’s ex wife, A. She and I were always really close and had so much in common. I’ve missed her all the years we’ve been apart due to family drama and hurt. Since Christmas we’ve stayed in contact and rekindled the friendship we always had. I’ve laughed more talking to … Continue reading Lunch with my SIL
Growing up with my mother was a walking contradiction. She preached for equality, women’s rights, fought in the 1960’s for black rights, was supportive and kind to her friends with gay children when others weren’t. The list of liberal ideas and philosophies is endless…. until it came to our home and our family. It’s all fine on the outside, but don’t bring it home. She … Continue reading Liberal in a family of Consevatives
I can’t help but remember holidays past. I miss my mom. Holidays were always HUGE drama fests when she was alive, yet I miss her and the love of the holidays we shared. Daddy and I have been reminiscing about lifetimes of holidays. We’re still new together, so catching each other up on the decades of family holidays we missed out on. I think we’ve … Continue reading As the holidays draw near….
We picked Grumpy up at 5pm yesterday. Surgery went swimmingly well. Within a couple hours he was eating and doing his business where he’s supposed to. He was still a bit groggy last night and just cuddled in my arms. This morning he jumped off the bed, heaven help me! He was off and down the stairs to meet Daddy at the door, tail wagging, … Continue reading Relaxing Wednesday Morning
I finally have some good updates to share on my house situation. After seeing my brothers and that drama, I was given a referral to a trust attorney who is going to help me/us. We met with him this Monday. Got great information!! He sent us home to weigh our options and decide what we want to do given the choices we have. There are … Continue reading The House- Finally some good news
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. It was actually very much how I remember things being for years. C pragmatic and nice (while being a cock sucker) and L silent, seething with anger until he started accusing me of stealing from the trust once again. Overall, I stayed out of the way and let Daddy handle things. Man-to-man is … Continue reading Seeing my family…
It’s Friday and my Daddy is off!! ♥ It’s been forever since we’ve had any kind of normal weekend day off together. His company Holiday party is tonight. We’ll make the obligatory appearance. Who knows, it might actually be enjoyable? *giggling* I’ve always hated company parties. We had a nice date night last night. Chinese food hit the spot in all kinds of fun ways. … Continue reading Good Morning!
The world came crashing in today and I fucking gave up. Daddy’s surgery is scheduled for the 3rd with a week off work. He had more appointments about the surgery this afternoon. The stress of life in general has been bogging me down, plus the new stress of Daddy being not ok. Got a letter from the Trustee on my home today threatening legal action … Continue reading Emotional Hangover
I grew up an only child. My half siblings were 13 – 19 years older and not around much for most of my life. We never lived together sharing the sibling experience. I also never had aunts and uncles, cousins or grandparents around. Most of my life it was just me and mom… except for holidays. My wants and needs got put on the back … Continue reading Why I love NO FAMILY holidays
