Just a slight rant

  I had to remove this post to try and fix the size of my journal.  Thanks to everyone for their wonderful comments.






    My meditation is

 going to be put to the test in the months to come.  It really does help. 

Also I took a sleeping pill last night and slept like a dream.  Thank goodness. 

 They only gave me 10, I hope they will let me have more if I need them. 

 Of course I have only taken 2 so they will last awhile.  And I am going to

get my hair highlighted here shortly.  I love the way she does it.  Red and gold highlights.

   I was so glad to hear from Sugar in her journal.  She sounds great and the

news was good.  Thanks goodness.

   Wow, had to get that off my chest.  I tell you

Julie....I hope Rick steps in and backs you up on BIL probs.   Oman, I just want to come up there and kick his hiney.   That's what he needs.     Like everyone doesn't have enough problems.    
PS   Hang in will all be ok.

It seems that there is always someone is each family that causes issues. Always.  I see it all the time.  I hope you and Rick get your points across to BIL.  Good luck Julie.

Sounds like you know what you have to do when he shows up.   BIL sounds like a real peach!   I don't envy you in the slightest.  

We have a similar situation with my grandma.  She lives with my aunt and her daughter and my cousin's daughters.  3 generations in one house.   Grandma pays most of the bills.  My aunt has never been married and is a kook!   She's always been kind of daft....but she had a stroke a couple years back and now she's really messed up.   She talks down to grandma all the time and has put herself into a diabetic coma more than a couple of times.  Grandma has had to call 911 at least 3 times.   So once again, grandma is taking care of everyone elses needs before her own.  Drives me crazy!   We have tried to get her to move in with us a number of times and she doesn't want to because then what would my aunt and cousin do?????  Who cares!!  Shouldn't grandma be enjoying these years?????   She's 86 and I don't know how much longer she'll be around.

Good luck.....I hope you are able to talk some sense into "Mr. Wonderful".

the typical alcoholic....always the victim, never taking responsibility for anything.  sad that he will come in and make an already difficult situation harder...and his onw mom at that!!!  i agree with you....need to be sure that the will is spelled out very clearly.  good luck.  you are in my prayers.

Sounds just like a leech to me. You know they just hang on forever and never let go. I do believe a lot of families have at least one like that. Helen

Julie, there always seems to be one in every family.  Your BIL is going to be in for the shock of his life when he can't run to mama anymore.  So be it.  I know it will be hard on you but you will take care of business.  Chris

Amazing what some family members have to deal with, I can sympathize with you, we also have one who seem's to thing the world revolves around her and has to be the center of attention no matter who is sick, who is injured or what goes on ...she has to be the focus of attention. Same with the leech thing too, she will drain a senior dry and leave her on the street if she could! Not responsible, not mature and very not liked by most of the rest of dont' feel bad posting your vent because some of us others have one or many in our own families! Some of us have jokingly said we needed to pull a cross out and get the stakes and hammers out when she is coming near! hahahaha HUGS and hope your hubby does not have to endure that kind of BS at this time in his life, Mom don't need it either. :)))))))) Doreen

Glad you have an outlet to vent...this entry might just be the thing that keeps you from ripping his head off.  I do understand where you are coming from, and there are just some family members that bring drama and problems everywhere they go.  There is a Jerry Springer reject or two in my family as well.

Rant all you want dear one! I know the own dad is that way. They put him on oxygen, he has a bad heart, and yet he drinks like a fish. I finally said enough I can't watch you wash your life down the drain. I told him when your ready and willing for a family and give up the booze call me. Well we know how that goes he has never called me. But in the end the mindset is the same. It's never their fault. And there is always someone to support them somehow or other.
Me? I agree with you whatever you need to do to give your MIL some peace. Love Ya hon!! Indigo

Well, you've got to be able to have your say or it just stays inside bottled up and stews.  You'll really have more of a gutache then, poor you.  Rant all you want, that's what we are here for.  Too bad God doesn't let us choose whom we have in our family.  Hang in there hon.  Glad you are getting some sleep.  De ;)
