Colleen, please explain again to me why you can't stay where you are at least till spring. Will your sis be putting the house right up for sale? You mentioned something about a nephew will he be able to pay the full rent your sis wants? You did everyone a favor by taking care of your mom & taking on the bulk of the responsiblility so why do you have to be out so soon? Houses aren't selling right now wuld she rather have it empty?

Seems to be & don't be mad but you put your life on hold for everyone, dgs, your mom (which freed up your sister to do what she wanted when she wanted. Don't you feel that maybe its their turn to owe you some consdieration? If nothing else your dgs should have stayed till spring when he would be going to a different school, he owed you that, he should not have walked out on you the way he did you didn't walk out on him when he was a baby. You knew you had to move in spring so you were preparing.

Colleen, your not a door mat & T's wife had no right talking to you the way she did & he should have said something to her. You all had an agreement & they didn't stick by it. I think you all could have made it work until spring when you knew they would be moving, which would have givin you more time to look for something & maybe save some money. Gdil just didn't want to live there anymore & I don't think she's the nice person you thought she was. I think there is a reason she doesn't have her dd & I think she saw T as someone who would take care of her forever. I hope she helps out fiancially because he's trying to make a life for himself& for them.

It would not have killed her to have stayed w/you a few more months. On the other hand your sist6er has had yrs. of not worrying about your mother & she could come & go as she pleased because she made a deal w/you which took all the burden & guilt off her for your mom.

Colleen its ok to feel the way you do. if you do talk w/them & you break down thats ok also because both of them haven't given you not one thought or consideration. You made it easy for your sister to live the way she wanted to for many yrs. In other words you let her off the hook, it was you taking care of your mom & going back & forth to the hospital etc.

I think your right Martha they did fly off half cocked. Its like she couldn't wait to get out of there it just doesn't make much sense.

What do you mean unemployed? Are you retiring? How is T doing?
