I thought the cute little Mickey would offset the angry words just a little.
Went to my MIL's today and we decided to call my BIL to talk about when he is coming back and how we are going to handle affairs when my MIL passes away. We found out she can give each of us something like $12,000 without it being taxable. That will be put into an account to pay expenses until the house sells, then whats left divided. Then we won't have to mess with the lawyer again. We wanted to discuss with my BIL who has been strangely absent lately.
He was home but his roommate said he was in bed. My MIL said we needed to talk to him and to please wake him up. So my BIL said he would call back. What! Refuse to take a call from his dying mother after everything she has done for him!
So we wait thinking maybe he wanted to go the restroom, brush his teeth, get some coffee before he called. Why he was in bed at 11:30 we don't know. He never called back. I just can not believe this. What is his problem? My husband says now that he can't get anything out of her anymore he has no use for her. I sure hope thats not true because that makes my opinion of him even lower. I also worry he may have fallen off the wagon again. Drinking or drugs. She could always tell as could we and that may be why we can't get ahold of him. Why does he have to make this difficult right now. As if it isn't difficult enough already. My poor MIL was so hurt. Angry and hurt. Would any of you refuse a call from your dying mother. What kind of person does that?
