I was completely played by Tony and made to look like an utter fool. Nothing I ever say or do will believed anymore and it will just be referred back to as "like you thought he stole?" Im just done. Turns out earlier tonight Tony called Cory and happened to mention to him the missing items. Seems that at some point in the past several weeks Cory decided to come to the house and help himself to a bunch of my mother's antiques because he wanted to decorate his house with them. Now Im not entirely believing this one entirely. I actually think he may have been wanting to sell them but found out they were silver plate and pewter which no one will buy. I am furious at him about this but in reality he is right in the fact that these were going to be his one day. Just not right now. I am more furious he never told me. His answer that I wasnt using it isnt cutting it with me but the fact that he told his father then his father came in and made this whole grand theater out of asking me if I wanted to talk to Cory and when I was acting like no, not unless something major was wrong, he started in with all the missing stuff and it was this really poor acting job of acting like he was just so shocked while the phone was on speaker phone. Then Tony makes this big deal out of saying...Oh Cory, you had your mother so worried. She was thinking Buck stole them. I was so sure neither you nor Buck did but that they had to just be misplaced in the house somewhere. Oh bs. Tony said "this isnt Cory I know. It has to be Buck." I still dont know how Cory managed it. Some of the stuff he got was in a closet in a room slam packed full of junk that he would have to climb through and move stuff aside in order to go through and I think I would have noticed him doing it. He cant even tell me when he did it. Buck would have had to be here. When we talked about all this didnt he think to say, oh that stuff is what Cory took out? Cory says there is a 5 gallon bucket full. Someone would notice someone carrying out that much. I dont know what Im not buying but Im not buying any of this whole story. Im mad at everyone right now. Everyone but Billy. I was made to apologize to Buck. Even though our sugar jar is still missing and he has accused me all day long about it and whined about it. This afternoon I noticed he was making coffee and I asked him if he had found the sugar since he was making coffee and he said "I got some sugar" in a snotty voice and went back to his room. I thought that meant he went out to buy some. Do remember that just Monday night he was giving me grief and accusing me about the sugar. Turns out that Monday night Tony brought home a new bag and Buck put it in a big coffee container and hid it in the kitchen and didnt tell any of us where it was. When he said he got some sugar I was left thinking he must have bought a small bag just for himself because I was thinking about having a bowl of cereal but when I looked in the kitchen I didnt see any sugar. I knocked on his door and asked if he knew where the sugar was and he didnt answer. I didnt keep at it. Well...I found out about Tony buying the new sugar when I was in the pantry looking for the ingredients for dinner last night and I noticed this huge red container of coffee and I thought it was odd since Tony always buys these small cans. I picked the big plastic red container up and shook it and it felt odd and I opened it and it was sugar! At first I thought...aha! Someone probably broke the jar and just put it in here and this was the answer to the missing sugar. Tony and Buck were outside with a friend so I ran outside with that and said I found the missing sugar....and Buck had to fess up that it was sugar Tony had bought Monday night. I of course was shocked about that. Im still confused but everyone is convinced I am behind the sugar now that I blamed Buck for no reason. The fact that he blamed us for taking his pillow and guitar when we didnt is all forgotten. Im going to start making my plans on how to get out from under this. My best way would be if Tony would agree to buy me out. I would give him a good deal and let him make payments which would actually be better for me. He cant actually own property in his name so I would just put it into Jamie's name or Billy's. Either, doesnt matter. I dont know that he will though. If he wont, I will just have to have a mobile home dealer come in and tow it away and get what I can get for it. The downside to that is no one will have a place to live. I dont know that he would ever be able to buy another place to put on this land to be honest...not with his credit problems. Buying me out would be his only way. Buck is going to ruin him if he isnt careful. Buck is actually going to leave Tony homeless because I will almost bet you that Buck will find somewhere else to go. If I go, I wont take Tony. There is one third option. My house is big enough to turn into a duplex fairly easily. My master bedroom is at least as big as most NYC apartments. Right now I have a king sized bed and a twin sized hospital bed side by side along one wall in just the bedroom and I have plenty of room to spare. I also have a large walk in closet, an office that is the size of a small bedroom and a very big master bath with a garden tub, separate shower and double sink and linen closet. You could easily use part of the closet, linen closet and one sink to turn it into a kitchen area and have a studio apartment. Block off the door leading into the room from the living room and put an entrance from one of the windows. I just dont know. Got a whole lot of thinking to do.
