Next On My List
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s never easy to cut anyone out of your life, especially when they are a part of the family. Do you avoid all gatherings that they go to or do you just go and do your best to ignore them? What do you do when they are the SO of your boyfriendÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s father?
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve tried really hard to like FILÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s SO but she makes it so damn hard. SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been Ã¢â‚¬Å“involvedÃ¢â‚¬Â with FIL for nearly 2 decades as far as I know and still nobody really knows what they are. They donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t sleep in the same room and he pays rent to her. I personally think she treats him pretty badly and worry about him.
Many times I have tried to ignore her snide comments and her selfishness. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve tried really hard to see beyond her tough exterior in hopes there is a loving side but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure there is. She is definitely a tough woman who can take care of herself but I think sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just a little too tough for me.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m pretty sure sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been pissed off at Mr. Yoda and I because we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t visit FIL in the hospital. Problem is, he asked us specifically not to come. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not sure why but since he said he was too miserable for guests we abided by his wishes. I know SO left a nasty voicemail for Mr. Yoda about Ã¢â‚¬Å“being there forÃ¢â‚¬Â his father, which IMO is none of her business.
So I sent out this nice email to wish everyone a Happy New Years and included an update on our lives. The title of the email was Ã¢â‚¬Å“See You All Next YearÃ¢â‚¬Â and at the end of the update it said Ã¢â‚¬Å“we hope to see y
ou all more next year.Ã¢â‚¬Â Do you know how she responded? All she put in big letters was Ã¢â‚¬Å“I WON’T HOLD MY BREATH…Ã¢â‚¬Â
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m still waiting to hear back from her what she meant by that but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m pretty sure I got the drift. If sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to act like this then I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want anything more to do with her, which may mean I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have much to do with FIL either. I love FIL but I really cannot stand to have anything to do with her anymore. That’s just how I am, she’s not worth the aggravation.
