...*sighs...What a day! It is absolutely gorgeous outside, and the children are out of school. My phone signals that I have a text message, and it is from my sister. "Are you at work?"..."Yes"...I lie. Am I going to hell for not wanting to talk to her? Maybe. Then again, maybe not. I find talking to my sister a chore. A chore that I receive absolutely NO compensation for. I know that sounds mean, but she is life-source sucking person. Her life is always in an uproar and someone else is always to blame. This week, she is wanting to leave her husband of 25 yrs. Why now? I ask her. He has always been nothing but shit. "I just can't take it anymore." she says. Well, I sucked it up and decided to say what I have wanted and needed to say for over 20 years. I told her that it was high time she figured things out for herself. I told her to leave our Dad out of it, because he absolutely doesn't need the extra stress, and I told her to quit blaming other people for her problems. She texts me back a terse "OK." Guess I'm back on the shit list....Oh well, maybe it will buy me a few months of peace til the next crisis.....then again.....maybe not. Some people NEVER learn.
