My dad disagrees with most things I say. My friend says he is contrary. It's amazing actually. Almost every time I say something he responds in the opposite. Is it because he still sees me as a kid (which would explain his shock when I tell him I am almost 59 years old)?
He is 86 and alcoholic too. He lives on an acre of land that needs mowing, etc. I tell him we (he should let me) hire someone to mow because it is too much for us (my husband and I) to do. My husband and I spend weekends there working. I clean and cook and hubby fixes broken things and does yard work. Dad doesn't want to hire anyone to do anything. I don't fee like we can let it go because of the fire danger (here in CA) the county is making people keep weeds and grasses down. Should I let the yards go and then hope that he realizes he needs the help? He says if I hire someone he will tell them they are fired. Also, he would have to pay for it because I don't have the extra money.
