Re: Thinking of removing myself from my adult children's lives

Not really. But I have been meaning to do try and find something to get into. Book clubs and volunteering are good choices/suggestions.

I am also thinking about getting off of social media. ...

Re: Thinking of removing myself from my adult children's lives

Re: Would anyone on the board feel the same way as I do about the following events?

I just realized that you said "my mom and sister" it is my niece and sister.

Just wanted to clear that up.

And, after thinking about it a little more, I think it's just them being their usual...

That's possible I suppose. As odd as it seems, I'm just going to go with that for now. Thanks!

I have no idea. Your guess is as good as mine, but that's a good question. Whatever the reason, it can't be good.

Re: Would anyone on the board feel the same way as I do about the following events?

My post is long and perhaps I didn't explain it clearly enough.

When I was staying with my sister, the niece I live with - we'll call her B - called. The two discussed the fact that her boss's...

Re: Would anyone on the board feel the same way as I do about the following events?

I agree. Hard to bring up since it's supposed to be her sister's work place and her sister's boss.

I now there are cases b/c I looked up where she works and there it is on their website (she...

I am currently living with my niece, her boyfriend and their two dogs.

I moved here a year or so ago to try to save money and hopefully get my own place. I lived with them briefly after my...

Re: People really do tell you where you fit in their lives; if we'd only listen!

While that is true; I'm not in need of support; just inclusion. So, I get it if you're working, taking care of small kids and perhaps an aging relative. But, shy of being absolutely overwhelmed, I...

People really do tell you where you fit in their lives; if we'd only listen!

I only recently REALLY learned this. You see, my husband passed away close to 13 years ago. At the time, I thought that shared friends and family would be my rock. How wrong I was. For a while,...

Re: Dog walking question

My feelings also. I think she needs someone to walk the dog (more convenient than running home) but probably could do without it. This is a convenient and VERY cheap fix for her. But, the "I need...

Dog walking question

I'm fairly certain I know how I will handle this situation; but I wanted to get some feedback.

I am retired, and was home a lot the last year or so as I did not have a car.
I do now, however. ...

Re: Thinking of removing myself from my adult children's lives

First, thanks for the replies. I've been thinking about this a little and I think the answer lies somewhere in-between, probably something like Kay Kay is stating.

So, I think that I will make...

Thinking of removing myself from my adult children's lives

I'll try to keep this as short as possible. My husband passed away close to 11 years ago. My daughters were 19 and 23 at the time.

My eldest is married to a wonderful guy who is in the Marines...

Well putting your interests first isn't always bad, agreed. Being as my kids are grown now and gone, I do a lot of that myself. But, the descriptions I'm seeing here don't come close to describing...

Re: A question regarding never married/no children individuals

You are probably right. There are most likely many self-absorbed people regardless of their life situation. I also wondered many times if they got sick of hearing about mine and other people's...

A question regarding never married/no children individuals

I will start by saying that I spent the majority of my adult life married with children. We therefore naturally spent a lot of time around other married couples, with children.

Since my husband's...

Re: A favorite quote that I try to remember, but sometimes forget

snafu - I like that one also. Here's a twist on it for you. "Those of us who refuse to forget the past are condemned to relive it" :)

I like all of those also. All true! The first quote and the one's I listed below all came from a show I watched, Revenge, which followed the same theme as "The Count of Monte Cristo".

Glad it worked out. I'm not sure what kind of relationship Ged and Poppy have. But if it's a girlfriend/boyfriend intimate one, it wouldn't matter much if the other person was a talker or not. I...

You are right KayKay. Nothing illegal to report. But it wouldn't surprise me to see her on the news, that's for sure. LOL I will just have to steer clear of her. If she's as out there as I think...
