I've been relatively hit or miss in here recently. My mother's (finally! FINALLY!!!) moving out of our house, although not to her own -- she found a
sucker (someone we know) willing to let her live with them instead of finding work & paying her own way in life, so she's moving across the country to
Some folks on here are aware of my mother's bold financial moochery and utter lack of personal responsibility, so it should come as no surprise that
we're beyond relieved & elated she's leaving, even at the cost of someone else not really understanding exactly what they agreed to.
On the plus side, there's serious perks to her moving that far away. One being both of my brothers will resume regular contact -- they both keep their
distance far & contact limited so she won't hit them up for money or a place to live And good on them, not doing the same was our mistake. My older
brother already housed her for years once, he's not about to get roped into it again.
One lives over by Detroit, and the other still lives in Florida, but there's a strong possibility one or the other -- or both -- might do a holiday
visit now. And my dad and stepmom (also near Detroit) will be more than willing to come visit, we've already discussed a barbecue possibility. They've
wanted to come over ever since we came up, but my mother has been the equivalent of Garlic warding off Vampires, nobody wants to be around her. She's
very pushy and MUST be the center of attention regardless of topic or company, even if the visitor doesn't know her (this gets old very damn fast)
It's going to be very nice here shortly to have full control of our house back, and not having people avoid visiting anymore because Miss
Center-of-The-Universe makes everyone's heads explode.
I know, sounds mean and all, but really, she's not the kind of person anyone wants to get stuck with under their roof.
