...so after two years, one of my Dad's other children (the one who he gave the house and conveniently disappeared for two years) has obviously received word that Dad has declined and wants to come and visit.
Well, she SAYS she's coming. I've heard it before, but something always "comes up" and she doesn't make it. It took her longer to drive to visit last time than she stayed (I guess about 30 minutes), and I. DON'T. LIKE. HER (or her bratty daughter that called me selfish a couple years ago because I couldn't answer the phone when she called).
Needless to say, I won't be there when they come. I literally can't stand to be in the room with any of them, and I know I wouldn't be able to keep my mouth shut in her presence.
Anyway, I've tried to give her a heads up about Dad's condition since she last saw him, but the control freak in me is all over the place. I don't want Dad upset, and I'm not thrilled that she's going to have an infant with her (apparently the bratty daughter has birthed some demon spawn and wants to show it off).
Is it OK to bring an infant around a legally blind 88 year old with end stage COPD, dementia and limited use of his left hand? I have no idea because I never had the pleasure of having kids. While they post pictures of their MANY vacations on social media (easily paid for since they have NO MORTGAGE!!!! - but complain about the house needing repairs) I've been shouldering ALL of the responsibility.
UGH!!! News of this pending visit has just put me in a foul mood...
On the bright side, my new "warm and fuzzies" toward Dad continue...
