My mom...I just don't know where to begin. Growing up, we clashed. A lot. Since I have grown up, moved out, and started my own family...we get along better. We still have our moments though. So much has happened lately...I just want to cut her out of my life...but I love her too much. Anyway, in 2010 she left my dad and moved in with her Aunt C (who is only 10 yrs older than her...they've been more like sisters). 2-3 months later...she went crawling back to dad. In 2011, my great aunt C (her same aunt) gave me her house, and bought a house beside mom and dad. Aunt C had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and mom wanted her close by so she could help. A month or 2 after the move, mom moved back in with her. She didn't "leave" dad per say, but never talked to him. Only called if she needed something. Dad is getting old and started thinking about retiring. He bought a big lawn mower so he could landscape part time if he did retire (he can't stay home with nothing to do). He started mowing a lady's grass he dated in high school. Mom got wind of it, got pissed, filed for divorce. It's getting pretty ugly and I'm trying to stay out of it. I was planning to sell my house and move to be with DH (he got a job out of state). Come to find out...my name was taken off of the deed and since my aunt gave her POA to my mom, her lawyer won't let her deed it to me. Mom said she's thinking about selling the house they live in..,and moving into "my house" once we move. She's also trying to take dad's house, land, etc.
The icing on the cake was today. Mom has been wanting a dog for a while. A kid that my DS is friends with had a chihuahua they had to get rid of. She got it. She was already housebroken and had her shots. The little dog loved my DS and followed him everywhere when he was there. The first 3 days she had her...she stayed with me. No problem...except that I have an 80 lb male pitbull. He's not aggressive...but 1 snap or swipe of the paw and that little 4 lb dog would be toast. I told my DS that we couldn't keep her...it was grandmas dog and I didn't want to take the chance with our dog. Finally, mom took her back. The little dog followed her everywhere. She would bark at my aunt (she didn't know her). I told mom to at least give it a couple of weeks and let her adjust...see how it went. Well she didn't. She gave her away Saturday. The problem is that she told DS that it was his dog. He wanted to go see her, so I had to tell him today that grandma had given her away. He was so hurt! He was hysterical...crying one minute...mad the next. I got him calmed down and in bed finally. I love my mom, I do! But I'm so tired of her jerking everyone around and always playing the victim! I wish I could move tomorrow! Ughhhhh
