My poor dad passed away on 2/27, my mother in law, who I also loved, followed him 18 days later. Mom is being fine with me. Big Sis is saying every nasty thing she can possibly say to me close enough to make sure I can hear. I am a well-educated successful woman. She barely made it through high school, and smokes pot and takes god knows what other kind of drugs. I have called Adult Protective Services to check on mom because right after my dad passed, I thought Mom was ok financially with $7100 in the bank, but they went through $6700 in less than 18 days. Everybody I have told this to has gasped at the exploitation. My attorney said because mom put my sister on her account, there's nothing anybody can really do IF mom approved all they spent it on (which she probably did). Now I have to worry every week if Mom has enough money to take care of her, or have they gone out and blown it all again?
It is at least a 2 hour round trip for me to go see Mom. We also run a small riding/boarding stable, I have a full time job and an 11 year old straight A student (at least before all this) daughter and a husband to care for. Not to mention a bunch of rescue animals. From what I've heard over the phone, Sis is not handling Mom well. Another attorney friend of mine (boards her horses with us), said to tell Mom when Sis is not around that she's welcome to come stay with us if needed. Mom is legally blind, and wanders off and gets lost sometimes - not all the time just sometimes. Something tells me Mom is going to end up with us - so be it. My daughter wants me to turn Sis (her aunt) in to the licensure board for smoking dope. Ugh!
