Ugg still waiting to hear from the other guys insurance. I was supposed to do a recorded statement today with their adjustor but he could not make the call time we had scheduled. Their driver the 80 yr old man does not remember what happened. Hopefully by monday we will have a police report. When they took the cars from the scene the police took the at fault car which was his.

But at Kia today we went to look at the new vans and they were able to get us in one with 0 down the payments are a bit over budget. but they said to make 3 payments then refi with the money we get for the old van as a down payment. and that will put us under budget amount.

Good Morning,

We're back from a wonderful trip, loved seeing Elin and Elizabeth. I spent less time on my foot there than I would have at home with the ECV, so it felt much better.

We went to the party for a second time on Thursday night to meet with Richie's brother and family, that was a total disaster. Disney really blew it for me on that one, so much so I will probably email them about it, not that they will do anything about it but it will "get it off my chest."

Jennifer - good luck dealing with the insurance, it can definitely be a pain.

Glynis - hope everything slows down a bit for you

Back to wound care today, hopefully we'll get a look at the graft. Crossing my fingers that this is the last one.

Good morning. I have a couple of minutes before I need to get breakfast going for the kids, so here I am!

Debbie - I'm so sorry that things didn't go well with the second party. Must have been big in order for you to feel like emailing someone about it. Still, I'm glad you had a good time with Elin and Elizabeth.

Elin - I'm really hoping to slow down at some point. Alan had a "come to Jesus" meeting with me about it this weekend, and I really need to do something to cut down on things. Looks like I'll be having a meeting with a couple of other drama parents about costumes for the rest of the year.

Nothing too much going on here today. It's a "minimal" day, which means the kids only have a half day of school so the teachers can go to district meetings. I do know that I have a grocery trip scheduled in sometime. We are out of practically everything. Alan hates to shop, and since I was doing costumes all weekend long, nothing got purchased for eating. Sigh.

Have a great day, everyone!

Good morning, DDA!

Debbie - I am glad that (for the most part) your trip was a good one. Also glad that your ECV helped out a lot. We both used Bob's this trip and it saved my ankle, which now seems to be doing OK. I am curious about what happened at the second party?!?!

Glynis - You just need to learn to say, "NO!" Best word I found in my vocabulary a number of years ago. No one suffered and I was better for it.

Good morning, everyone! Just popping in to say hi, and to vent a little bit.

I've told y'all about my MIL and how she is a passive/aggressive manipulator. Well, this time she's done it! Alan's niece just got married in England, and MIL wanted to go. However, she can't afford it on her own, and her health is awful. That kind of trip might just do her in. However, she really wanted to go. She kept hinting around, hoping that Alan's sister would foot the bill, and get her there, and take care of her while she was there. SIL didn't fall for it, so MIL didn't get to go.

While SIL was in England, MIL and her husband make the monumental decision to move to Arkansas where another sister of Alan's lives. This sister is the biggest enabler to her mother. It's quite disgusting to watch. MIL went crying to SIL, about how none of us ever visit her, we never invite her to anything, etc. Really, the whole 9 yards. She really spread it on thick. Of course we visit her! She's been invited to everything that's happened to any of the kids or grandkids since she moved to this current house. Of course, she doesn't tell SIL any of that, so SIL sends a scathing email to all her siblings, telling us all how awful we are that we won't make Mom and Bob feel welcome! She tells us how she is going to move Mom and Bob to Arkansas where she and her kids can take care of them in their declining years and we all ought to be ashamed of ourselves.

Anyway, a week passes, and MIL gives notice at her current house, and starts getting ready to move, all the while making little comments about how she'd really like to stay, but she needs to be "closer to family". At this point, we are all DONE with her manipulation! We just let her comment, and don't say anything, which really riled her up. SIL in Arkansas lets us know that unfortunately, she can't come out and drive MIL and Bob to Arkansas, so we are going to have to pack her up and figure out how to get her there. We found a person willing to drive her, so all we have to do is pack them up.

We rented a POD and as of last night, it is full. Today we get to go up there, finish packing their car with the last of what they will take with them, and load up a trailer full of furniture she wants us to sell at a yard sale and send her the money.

I'm trying to have a good attitude, but it's getting really hard. This move will kill her and her husband. Both of them are in very poor health, and have been advised not to move by their doctors. They won't listen. I would really rather not go to help, because it's really hard for me to hold my tongue when she starts in with her digs on her ungrateful children. However, she's not my mom, and it's not my place to yell at her! I also have to take into account that this will probably be the last time my children will ever see their grandma alive again. So, I get to put on a happy face, help pack their car and trailer tonight, and throw a farewell party for them.

Send me all your good thoughts today and tomorrow! I'm going to need them!

I know this is hard to go through, but it might be just what the doctor ordered for you and your family. The degree of separation may stop or at least slow down the manipulation and you know in your heart and God knows that you have done everything right. Be at peace and let them go.

Chris had the last straw with his mother a few years ago and he seems okay with not communicating with her. We only ever heard from her when she needed something anyway so he is just not letting her manipulate him anymore.
