And life goes on...

Well it has been a while since I have made a post. A short update for the last few months.

My sister had a stroke in August. Have had her daughter and bird every since.

My cousin is back and living with us all here at the funny farm ;-) Her little Lucy dog had to be let go a couple of weeks ago. Now Baxter is lonely, even though there is 2 other dogs in the house.

Mom is getting a total knee replacement in a couple of weeks.

Good news on Bug, her knee isn't broken after her fall at school. And I need and MRI to see if I need surgery on my thumb after my fall 2 moths ago.

The trailer is half demolished... I can't due anything due to my hand and I am so sick of looking at the mess! 

And tomorrow is my paternal Dad's funeral. And I can't go.. I feel so bad for my step Sister as she is having to deal with all of this on her own. And I hope family (down there) is supporting her and not causing problems. I truly appreciate all she has done for our dad over the years.

I was so tickled when she told me dad gave her the house, as my sister (DP) and I don't want to live in California. She deserves it for all the help she gave dad & Bet all her life. Granted we all need help at times and it is nice to have parents who care and can help. But... and this is a BIG one, just because one sibling is given something doesn't mean the other(s) aren't loved or cared for. Each is given by their need and ability.
I know there is always 2 sides to every story. Deb told me her side. And I know Rob has his. But I will say this for Rob, he has always come across as self righteous and arrogant, but he can be a love at times too. (can't we all) I know he has worked hard to get where he is and for what he has. But to complain about his sister getting something because he didn't. Come on, grow up and put the big boy pants on. You said everything you have is better than what dad has or had. So why should you get anything extra just so you can sell it??? I don't understand.

Dad inherited you both when he married your mom and he treated you both fairly. He loved you as he did my sister and me. And it was his right to give Deb the house. And to demand part of the land or you wouldn't go see your dying mother... shame on you! That is something between you and your god. I know I wouldn't want to be in your shoes.

Well I need to get off my soapbox and see to the family. Maybe things will take a turn soon. And for that big turn- I am awaiting with excitement and hope.
