I have a neighbor....

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

So,I have a neighbor that walks out to check his mail in a white undershirt and boxers!This morning he came over to my house,cigarette hanging in the corner of his mouth,and asks for a cup of coffee!!!He is around 65 years old,is not married,lives with his mama,is slovenly,and appears to have an after baby belly.I was shocked and flabbergasted at his appearance,behavior and wiggling eyebrows!! emoticonI am a very nice person but I was mad emoticon and told him that if he ever steps up to my door in his skivvies again trying to be suggestive,My dog will bite his @ss!!His brother came and apologized and explained that his brother was drunk.Well,that isnt good enough and I called and reported him to the police.There are young kids that see him in that state of undress....grrrr! emoticonSUSAN

    Good for You! Sounds like the brother was just making up excuses for him, especially if he has gone outside like that before.

    I live in Texas, so work in my garden and yard all summer in just my shorts. Please ladies, don't mistake any of my shorts for boxers and call the police. If it helps any I don't drink or wiggle my eyebrows emoticon

    Good for you! Most people don't take the step to call the police, but complain about such behavior quietly. If there's no record of this, and he were to approach a little girl, you'd never forgive yourself.

YAY YOU!

Monday, July 11, 2011

I have been trying to reach out to the sister that shares a birthday with me!She has avoided me since our mom died,and has said in no uncertain terms,she dont like me.I sent her an email saturday and texted her today and Her response was...Why are you bothering me?I dont get it but my other sister says I abandoned her when I got married.Meaning I left and moved to Germany!I choose How i feel to react to things.I took off and walked off the hurt!I cant force her to talk to me.I wont give up though!Maybe someday,she'll see how crazy this is,I've been married 35 years and her abusive language and attitude are her problem!I need advice because im chasing my tail emoticonI dont want bitterness in my heart,theres no room for it! emoticonSUSAN

    I am sorry about your unreasonable sister. She is probably going through her own things and putting the blame on you!
Know you did what you could and now it is up to her. I know it hurts.
We each have the responsibility of our own actions. You have to live your life. She has to live hers.
Maybe she is jealous and will not admit it.

    The easiest way to be happy is to realize that you can't do anything about anyone other than yourself. You have tried and tried with your sister but unfortunately, she seems to be stuck in wallowing in her pain, totally self absorbed and not realizing how much you hurt, too. I have been through this with a brother - my big brother who I adored. During his second marriage, he cut me off totally because I hurt his feelings once. I apologized and apologized but it did not help. My decision was to totally back off from him and give him time to heal the wound and time to miss me and all that we meant to each other. For about 3 years, our only contact was that I sent him a birthday card, anniversary card, and Christmas card. Eventually he got over his anger and we talked it all out like civilized human beings. We are, once again, really, really close. Time heals but persistence my just keep opening the wounds. Find someone else in your life who needs and wants your love and affection right now.

    This makes me sad. It reminds me of a really close friendship that ended unnecessarily. My best friend was badly hurt by something she thought I was involved in, although I was in no way involved. She never spoke to me again, and I ruminated and ruminated until I realized there was nothing I needed to apologize for and nothing I could say to convince her she was mistaken. I eventually stopped ruminating, but it still makes me feel sad when I think about it. I think everyone who's said "let it go" is very right, but there are always those moments . . .

As hard as it might be, you owe it to yourself to give this one to God, and not revisit it until it comes to you again.

    Let me encourage you that all is not lost. Sometimes you have to let people go who are not ready to deal with you, even if it is family or relatives. I am in a similar situation with a dear friend that will not speak to me. It hurts badly because there is no rational reason for the severing of the relationship. I am praying for you and your sister that the walls be broken down and that healing will take place for both of you. Time heals all wounds. Believe it!!!! emoticon

    You have done what you could now it is up to your sister to reach out to you. I haven't talked to my sister in years. I kept trying but it just kept feeling like she was slamming a door in my face. After my parents passed away I decided I deserved to be treated better so I let her go. If the day ever comes and she wants a relationship with me she knows how to get in touch with me. I was told she was envious of the life I created for myself and disappointed in the one she made for herself. I miss her but I can't change her so I give her what she wants, me not being a part of her life.
I keep hoping the day will come when she wants to have a relationship with me but it hasn't happened and might never happen. It hurts less, letting her going than having a door slammed in my face.
Hope it works out with your sister.

    WTG teacher mom! I have son that will be 17 in September, in fact I have 3 boys - one who is almost 20, almost 17 and almost 13 and I have made a point to make them self sufficient too. The oldest is in his own apartment and he is the one that knows how to take care of the bills, grocery shopping, laundry, cooking, taking care of the car, dealing with utilities etc. He is trying to teach his not very knowledgable roommates and I am very proud of him.

    You mean you aren't Mommy Dearest and you and your husband don't need psychotherapy? Jeesh, you mean your daughter's a normal, nice kid who happens to be typical? Good thing a friend's Mom talked to her. Surely you know that friends' Moms know WAY more than their own do. Sounds fine -- until the next time!

    How can you blame this all on your daughter? Seems like a normally acting teenager to me.
I think being so harsh will only draw her away from you---and, right into Dad's direction. Your harshness sounds more like revenge that tough love.

Maybe the real problem is a lack of communication between you and your spouse???
