Yesterday was going along peacefully. I was feeling a tad under the weather, I think I might be coming down with an end of summer cold or it's weird allergies. Anywho...my young one called to ask me about something they found rummaging through a closet. As always I was delighted to hear from my offspring.
Until that is she starts firing off tidbits of what's going on over there. Then my nice day is suddenly not so nice anymore. First it's that they are made to clean out a room that was turned storage to make a space for a guest the Ogre's sister has coming to visit. Yes the Leech is still living with them. Complaining about how miserable she is living there every chance she gets.
Then she drops another thing in my lap...his sister the Leech wants to sell off my Grandmother's record albums. Because she thinks they'll fetch a lot of money. And in her opinion, there are lots of people out there that want old polka albums. (insert SCREAM!! here) I don't give two shits if that were the case. They aren't hers to sell!! She has no fucking right to even suggest it. I told the girls that I hope they have the balls to stand up and not allow her or anyone to do that. Not with the records, not with anything that isn't theirs!
We talked a bit more about stuff, then she informs me that the Leech and possibly the Ogre under Leech's influence of course want to invite her son, his second wife, their 3 kids and 3 dogs to come live at the house. Supposedly only until Junior can find a job and get on their feet. Now I have several problems with this....1) Leech can't stand wife #2, 2) she doesn't acknowledge their 2 children together, 3) I can't see him leaving his son with wife #1 behind, 4) it's almost a given that the girls would be expected to give up their rooms to accommodate Junior and his brood, 5) the Ogre hates my girl's little Yorkie I can't see him being okay with 3 more dogs in the house. And those are just off the top of my head. She tried once before when he was married to the first wife to get him to move back and live with her, he said no then. (oh and she hated the first wife too. so much for being a good christian and loving others).
She always has been a cruel, manipulating bitch but this shit just takes the cake. I can only image the shit she'd put this poor girl through if they actually did move back. If how she treated me and shit she's said about me over the years is any indication, I hope Junior at least has the sense to stand up for his wife.
It's shit like this that really pisses me off. That and the fact that there's nothing I can do about it.
