Confession Thursday!

Re: Confession Thursday!

  • I confess that someone who no longer works at my job is making my job difficult because they left so many things undone!

  • I confess that I am only going to have dinner with my aunt tomorrow in order to keep the peace with my mom.  I really have no desire to drive several hours to see my aunt with whom I have no longer have a relationship with.  I also confess I'm bitter that she expects me to go there to see her but she hasn't stopped to say hi when she's been in town for the 7 years I've lived here.

    @amorg334 - That sucks!  On the bright side, at least you know that it's getting done the right way now that you have to do it for him/her.

  • @flutterbride2b  That sucks about having to do a dinner you do not want too.  

    Also, as soon as I really start getting things cleaned up it will make my job easier!

  • @flutterbride2b--UGH. I understand and have an aunt like this myself. I am routinely expected to drive 6hrs round trip for a dinner/lunch/afternoon party to "keep the peace" and when I don't go it's like I am the worst/most selfish person on earth. However, in the nearly 12 years I've lived in my city she has never ONCE driven over to see me. I keep saying the interstate goes east AND west!

    She lives halfway across the country and always flies into a city about 45 minutes from me where she has friends.  She has to drive less than 5 minutes from my house in order to go to the city my mom & grandma live in.  Even when I worked 5 minutes from the airport she couldn't be bothered to drop by and say hi.  We were never *close* but I thought she was cool enough when I was like 15.  Now it's sort of like "what's the point?"

    Exactly! I think it also bothers my aunt that I am actually SUPER CLOSE to my other aunt (her sister). Close aunt lives 2 hours away from me (opposite direction) but we both make time for each other  to visit, text, email, call, etc. It's funny how family dynamics work!
