I got a call from mom on Sunday letting me know that she and Dad would be home on Tuesday, and that my sister and her family were staying at her house because BIL's nephew died so they are up here for the funeral. She was cheerful at first, but seem hesitant to tell me that my sister and her family were in town. I don't know when the funeral is/was, or how long they plan to stay.

As many of you know, I haven't spoken to my sister since T-day when she didn't apologize and I let her know that a hug was not enough anymore. Before that, it had been a little over a year since I had spoken to her. I won't go into the whole mess, I will just say that my life is much better without my sister in it.

So, I haven't heard one word from them, not even from my niece who I really did make up with. Hmmm, what message do you think they are sending? NO, the funeral is not something I would be involved in even if we were on speaking terms.

The good thing is that I havn't given them much thought at all, and I have not obsessed or allowed their close proximity and possible contact affect my well-being. Three years ago, I would have been a wreck waiting for the potential phone call or for my sister to show up on my porch. I have made a lot of progress.
