So, remember how warm and fuzzy I felt after my loco sister and I had that wonderful discussion about mom and her future placement and how if there was a meeting with the state or any DR's we would drive to PA together so that we could all be there?? Well, today the state is coming to my mom's apt in PA. I was originally set to to go with loco sister. I called her over the weekend to see what was up but of course they never EVER answer their phone or return messages...I never heard back (typical). In the meantime, I received word that TODAY would be the day that I would have to reconcile the year end books for the accountants. I spoke with the accountant yesterday and she said she could probably put it off until Thursday. Then my other sister who lives in WV called me and said she was going to the meeting at my mom's house. She also told me that loco sister probably wasn't going because she fell and hurt her back again. Okay. Then, I tried calling my sister in PA who lives near mom and of course no one answers the phone or calls back. So, now I'm kind of on the fence about going at all. Two reasons: The accountant issue at work and my mom has a big fat furry cat. I can't be in her house for more than 10 minutes without getting asthma really really bad that lasts for 2 days. So, I leave a message with my sister asking if there will be a DR appointment today as well, because if there is then I will make the drive and go to that but skip the in house meeting with the state. After all, my sisters could tell me what was said and decided, right? But as I said earlier, my sisters never called me back. Well, this morning I called my PA sister to wish her luck and to remind her to call me later with any info and guess what? Loco sister is there, never called me to see if I was going with her, nothing. I was so that tears instantly sprung to my eyes and I had to hang up. I realize that I was on the fence about going at all because of work and the cat, but she could have at least called me!!! Am I wrong to be angry with her? We're talking about the future care of my mom and I am the one who pushed everyone and got their attention finally. What is that all about?? And if my other sisters knew beforehand, you'd think that one of them would have freakin called me back. OMG - my blood is just boiling. And I feel so left out. And no one ever stands up to this loco sister so it's not like anyone will ask her what her problem is. I am SO glad I didn't make any plans with anyone for Christmas this year. I am trying to get out of my angry mood now. My assistant is out sick for the 3rd day in a row with a cold, and it's year end, so there is a HUGE crunch going here in the office. My nephew who works PT whenever he feels like it basically is also not here. So, I am alone and I'm just so angry. I need to let this roll off and get on with my day - not let it ruin my spirit. If only I could listen to Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas is You" all day over and over again....maybe that would do it. I love that song. Always lifts me up.
