So, it's not even 7:30 in the morning and I'm sitting here trying not to cry over another comment that my sister made. I had posted yesterday on Facebook that our guinea pig was driving me nuts because she will rummage through her food and chuck out anything she doesn't like, which results in me sweeping my floor three times a day. So anyways, SO's sister was telling me I should get a dog to clean it up for me (as a joke) and I mentioned that the kids REALLY want a puppy and really, so do I but that I told them we need to wait until at least the fall because I can't do the newborn/puppy thing at the same time without a nervous breakdown. Anyways, this morning it said that my sister had commented so I looked but didn't see anything. Figuring it had to have been rude enough for her to delete, I checked my email notifications and sure enough she posted and then deleted it. It said "Um why would you even think about getting another animal when you have three kids??".
Now obviously, there are meaner things she could have written but I just do not understand why she feels the need to have a comment (and usually a negative one) for absolutely every single thing I do and say??? It's really starting to upset me and so I tried talking to my mom about it because I've talked to my sister and she just tells me she isn't doing anything wrong. Well, obviously I caught her in a bad mood because she starts snapping at me that she isn't getting involved and to stop putting her in the middle so then I felt like a total child, which upset me even MORE because I'm not trying to be immature. I am trying so hard to understand why my sister just feels she is entitled to say whatever she wants to me in no regards to my feelings. It would be one thing if I was always going to her for help or complaining about things to her all the time but I don't. I don't ask her for ANYTHING if I can help it. She also tells me all the time how ridiculous it is that my kids are at my parents all the time and if I can't handle them why would I have another one. The funny thing is that unless I have an appointment or something, I don't ask my mom to baby-sit. She or my stepdad call all the time and invite them over and what am I going to say? No, they can't visit you???
Ugh!! I know I'm more sensitive than usual, but this is really getting to me. I just wish she'd learn some eitquette and start practicing the "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." rule!!!
