Today is Monday, November 8, 2010. We have had three nights of freeze warnings, this makes for a very cold morning! We were supposed to have two more nights of freeze warnings but this morning it looks like that is over for at least the next couple of weeks. The day time temperatures are supposed to be back in the 80's and the nights in the 50's.
Went grocery shopping early yesterday morning, picked up a small ceramic heater for mama. I knew that she hadn't bought one yet. After leaving the store went over to mama's to wake her up and have coffee. To my surprise she was up! Hadn't been up long, but she was up. And no, she hadn't bought a heater.
I am so angry and shocked at my sister! Mama was telling me that she had talked to my brother the night before. He told her that my sister told him she wants dad's house. What is this nut thinking?!? He has a wife and that is her house, her home. My brother told mama that the house was in dad's name only and so there for she thinks that she should have it. She then told him that she would come up and "help" go through dad's things. My brother was so upset he just ended the phone call with her.
I was so upset at the thought of her even thinking such trash! She has really shown her true colors. This made me so upset that when I came home, I went on line and made a will, got two witness to sign, I signed and it is good to go. It did wake George up to talking about death. He doesn't like to talk about it, never has. Death is part of life, it needs to be talked about.
Our home is in my name, George's name isn't on it. In order to get his name on the house we would have to refinance it according to the mortgage company. I never gave it any more thought until yesterday. The thought of someone thinking that they should have our home, well it really ticked me off. This is our home and has been for a very long time. All of the grandkids know no other home for us.
I have never seen this side of my sister, like a vulture. George says he has seen it in other families, people swoop in. I guess I have been very blessed that I have never seen this kind of behavior before, just sickening. It is hard enough to loose your husband, but to have to worry about someone thinking that they should have your home too?
Right now at this time, I know better than to go see her. There is way to much anger and frustration. In a few days, I will figure out how to handle her and her sick ways. Now is not the time.
This has been very hard on my brother, he and dad fought all of the time, but that's the way they always were with each other. They are so much alike, even look alike. So I am going to gather up pictures of my dad print them on the cotton fabric and make a quilt for my brother. Shouldn't take to long to make.
If you don't have a will, I encourage you to go on line and make one. I know that money is very tight, but for peace of mind it is a twenty dollars very well spent.
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
