My mom told me on Sunday and he told her the weekend before. She said if he didn't call to tell me within a week that she'd tell me herself! She'd been after me to get in touch with him for a few days. Told me his business wasn't doing very well but that he'd been shopping for a house. Suggested that I call and check in with him. I haven't talked to him since May, haven't seen him since Christmas. My brother doesn't stay in touch with the family very well and I gave up years ago in trying to keep the relationship going. He doesn't return phone calls for one. He either doesn't show up to family gatherings or arrives very late. I just don't know who he is anymore. Being 5 years my junior also doesn't help since we didn't have a lot in common as kids. I've only seen his fiancee three times. Once when he brought her by my house two years ago to introduce her (I didn't know it but they'd already been dating almost a year), once at my house that Christmas, and once last Christmas at my uncle's house. Don't really know much about her either. Yeah, I have a weird family. You know, I don't even know where he lives? All he's ever given me is a P.O. box number. And his phone is a cell. So my mom tells me they set a date for May 23rd, she's got a rock on her hand big enough to choke a horse, and there's a good chance my kids won't be invited because they are planning a very small private church ceremony with no kids. Not sure how I feel about that, but it's certainly their perogative. I called him Sunday (before my mom told me the news) and of course he didn't answer his phone. I left a message and of course he hasn't called me back. So he still doesn't know that I know. But my mom thinks he probably figures she already told me. Sheesh. What a weirdo.
