Join Them

If you can not fight them, join them, be as bad as they are, and treat them the way they treat you. Some of my siblings have been acting like idiots, and they think that they are so smart. They communicate between themselves; they kept things about the family from me. My niece was pregnant; they did not tell me; my other niece got in trouble. They did not tell me. I only found out because my children’s father is related to my sister’s husband because of my children. My mother told them not to help me. First, my little sister wanted to borrow her car, and my mother told her not to lend it to me. This is the sister I was there for her and her children when her children were little.
After my divorce, my other sisters packed her stuff and sent her to Texas and gave me mom. My mother is not a regular or normal mom; she is excited and does not hug or say she loves you. She will tell you what you did wrong, and she will speak ill-feeling in your life. She can not stay in one place for too long, and she changes her mind constantly. She is not predictable, for example, the light and the door at the cottage. You can never expect her to keep the same schedule or behavior last night. She left the doors unlocked, but she did not have the front light. Some day she locked the door and went the light off;
another day, she closed the middle door.
Some people wonder how come I signed up on social media. Let me tell you I don’t particularly appreciate when people, especially my families, do not answer my phone calls or my text and act like nothing happens when they want something me. Yesterday one sent me a request for $1 on Venmo. Now that is so sarcastic $1; I know it is because it is the beginning of the month, and her sister was sitting at her desk paying the bills. People will be close to them if they know how to approach people with good manners and kindness. They got that attitude from mom, and it is so not attractive. They are welcome to manipulate mom because they are the same. It is excellent that they like to plan things; I can understand it is because they do their class plan together; that is a class plan, not people’s lives plan. I would feel so alone it was not for my children and the people on social sites.
