Last night, I cooked dinner for the Brooms and husband for Father's Day. At their house, but that's another story altogether that I won't go into. *** husband's 23 year old nephew, who I've posted about before, has been gone 28 days to basic for the Air Force. He graduates in another month. He gets to use the phone and computer regularly to contact his mom (husband's sister) and his girlfriend. *** Prior to this, he was employed about half the time (maybe) and lived with his mom. He was one of his mom's best buddies, and I think she'd have been content to have him live there forever. *** My son, difficult child 1, left for boot 3 years ago. He got to write letters on Sundays. He got to make 3 phone calls during that first 3 months. There was no other way for me to contact him. He is now deployed overseas. He is missing his son's first steps, and his first birthday... *** Two Brooms rarely asked about him, and asks even less now, but still...been there done that *** She spent last night, while I was cooking, crying to me because husband's sister is so sad because nephew is gone and she misses him...she is just beside herself. And his girlfriend just lives beside her phone waiting for it to ring...and it is far worse than anyone else in the world has ever suffered thru. *** Really, Two Brooms? Are you so inept to realize WHO you are talking to and what about? *** Sometimes I wonder if that woman is on the spectrum...her level of cluelessness sometimes is beyond comprehension.
