The woman never amazes me

My mother's sister is such a piece of work. Everything with her is "whoah is me". I mean everything.

My Mom was trying to to have a decent conversation with her. I don't know why she tried to have a decent conversation with her, it never ends that way.

Yesterday she called my Mom to tell her that she had been in tears all day just thinking about Mother's Day. She went on to say that next Sunday is her first Mother's Day without her mother. My Mom reminded her that it is also her first Mother's Day without her mother and she was not alone.

Her response......" Well she was my mother for 72 years and only yours for 68 years." As if she had more of a right to be upset and grieving because she was born first.

This woman is unbelievable. Just think, I don't post about all her antics anymore because I think my blog readers may think I have an active imagination. No imagination needed, I couldn't even make up such things with her. Nothing she does amazes me anymore.

I will tell you that my grandfather has fallen twice this week. Social services was called again by the emergency personnel. She beat them to the punch and called his doctor to convince him to tell SS that my grandfather is OK to stay by himself and he did as she told him. Unbelievable.

Does the doctor only have her word to go on? Have your parents spoken to him about how many times he's fallen, etc.? If not, maybe they should.

Hopefully your aunt was just being silly about the 72 years vs 68 years.

I do feel for your mom and your aunt; the first holidays without your mom are hard, but your aunt's comment was a bit off the wall I think.

Write about what she does, Becky, if you want to, believe you me, I won't think you are making it up or its your vivid imagination.

Your grandfather is an accident waiting to happen that is going to make a very tough situation for all to make decisions about because of the irresponsibility your aunt is displaying in regards to his abilities, etc. Sad thing is it is your grandfather and his final days that will be most impacted because of her "foolishness" in the antics she is doing. All you can do is make sure you don't act the same in years ahead with your parents as they age......
