The snow plows are coming! That's the "YAY!" the "BOO!" is that I had to run out into the street to move Bugs' car onto the driveway so it doesn't get plowed in.

Did I mention I'm still in my nightie? Eeek!

Ah yes, the joys of winter. Do the snowplow guys announce that they are there with a very loud horn or siren?

You reminded me of scenes from movies/TV from the '60s. A bunch of housewives would drive their hubbies to the train dressed in nightie and coat and sometimes, curlers.

when i'm the appointed middle-person for my divorceing Parents, i let 'em know
-i'm not a mediator or the middle-woman
-they ought behave as adults
-phone #'s can be easily blocked
-they brought this on themselves
- they might take responsibility for once
stay strong & vent away, snip! keeping stuff in can be stressful.

There is a website you can check, but in this case, Ken was out walking the dog and saw them. He called me to move the vehicles.

Thank you!
I've put my phone off but they email me. They both know I will read it. I care too damn much. If I become a closet alcoholic I'm blaming them
I talk here because I know I can speak without getting judged and no one on DC goes out to make my life harder. I trust you guys and I keep this forum to myself. I have to talk sometimes for the sake of my sanity and I can't talk to family. Don't know who I can trust. I know blood is thicker than water but right now I choose water. Don't like thick things anyway

not a problem; i (we, as a group) lend an ear, & when i can, i'll offer advice. those un-read e-mails can leave a person rather curious.
i say if typing your woes away to us is sufficient, type on!

not so very lovely when families begin to crumble, although it's usually almost a relief later on.

I do just need the odd vent. Thank you Luvs. This was good enough for me. It's sad but kinda true. It would kinda be a relief

Snip, hang in there. You don't have to be anyone's victim. And that is what your family is trying to make you.

Thank you Addie. I've stopped contact with all of them for now. My Mom and Sister are trying to get me to choose between the 2 of them. They say I can stay out of it but in the same breath they both are saying that they've cut ties with each other and suggest I do the same. It's messed up, why should I write either of them off because they have?!
