Today, my precious nephew turned 11. 😦 And worse, I haven’t seen him since February. I miss him like crazy! He’s such a goofy, awesome kid. I wish so much for him – so much more than what his parents will insist for and from him – but there is nothing about who he is I would change. I know that to talk to him I have to be the bigger person and call my sister, but I don’t want to. She lied to our Daddy, which means she has probably lied to our Granny, too. And that pisses me off. I bent over backwards to make us living with them easier, did everything she asked, and this is her response?! So I don’t want her to have my new number and I don’t know that I can talk to her in a civilized manner. So, I worry that he doesn’t know how much I love him. I’m thinking of contacting my brother-in-law (since he and my sister split shortly after we left) and see if he is willing to talk to me and help me see my nephew. How sad is that? I’d rather talk to my brother-in-law (ex-brother-in-law? he’s still my big brother) than my sister – well, my half sister. *le sigh*
In other news, it’s also my cousin Jeffrey turned 9 today! It’s crazy, my cousin Emily has a son about to graduate high school, and my youngest cousin just turned 9. Hell, Emily’s older brother (whom we don’t claim because he’s an ass to my favorite uncle – his dad) is older than Janet and John (my youngest aunt and uncle, twins – Janet is the mother of cousin Jeffrey). Our family is very spread out, but it works for us. And also, it’s my mother-in-law’s birthday (though, respecting that most women have issue with that number, I will refrain from listing that). I told her that I will never forget her birthday (and, thus, her son never will) – and I think that gives me more needed brownie points. For those who have missed the last year of my life – I have been with my husband for five and a half years and until last year, my mother-in-law hated my guts. But recently, she has gotten on the “LeaAnn Bandwagon” (because, as we all know, I’m awesome ^__^ ). Okay, no, I’m not really that conceited. Well, I guess technically, I am, since I’m keeping a blog and talking to people who may or may not be there, lol.
So, be well, be happy. Brightest blessings. ^__^
