For some reason, mylot only allows a certain amount to be posted but it lets you type away without knowing. Lovely. Just lovely. So to understand this you'll have to read the first part. [i]Normally it's low but it's been known to sky rocket which is the main cause for strokes. EVERYBODY on granddad Biggs (grandma's dad) side of the family has died from strokes. Something I didn't know till just a month or so ago so it's all the more important that we keep the stress at the bare minimum. I'm not at all trying to make you feel guilty or terrible in any way but thought you'd like to know so you can do something about it. Now next weekend, Jimmy and I are coming up and we'll stay with a friend of mine that I'm sure you know, Kym Adams. And we'll come by there sometime early Saturday morning and hopefully a whole gang of us will show up to help and get it done in two days but not more than four days. It won't be easy but we can do it if we put our mind to it. Now if you can get some of your friends to help, please by all means, bring them on!! We'll need cleaners, rags, laundry detergent, febreeze, paint brushes, paint rollers, paint pans and what ever else we need to get that house in perfect order and the smell out. OK? If your friends can provide some of these things, GREAT, if not then we'll have to figure something out. We need to get the house in order and get it sold for it'll be such a huge relief on all of us. Ok? I love you!! We'll get through this.... TOGETHER!!!! Call me if you want or need to! I'd so love to talk to you!![/i] So what's so bad about this email?! I even read it to mom and she didn't see anything wrong with it. Go figure. Both my brother and nephew are self centered a-holes!!

I have to Grandpa Bob. I have to let it go. The only thing I'm worried about is this whole ordeal killing my parents while I did nothing to help in the end. That's going to kill me with guilt even though I know I tried to help it's going to eat me up alive.

Wow! You did well hon. You told them what they needed to be told, instead of what they wanted to hear. I hope it somehow sinks into their thick skulls! Hugs to you sweetie.

No no no Kat, that's the email that started the huge arguement between my brother and I! He said I told too much to everybody about the situation and I embarassed his son!! I mean, who's side is this jackass on anyway? So is he saying it's ok for his son to trash my parents home? Is he such a moran to think that nobody is going to find out? Duh?! He's such a stupid dumb @ss moran!! Besides, he's the one who told me the better the story the more help we'll get for them and he knocks my trying to get help right down!

Kat sweetie, I've had those days too. In fact, I've had too damned many of them as of late!! ARG!! All you can do is get right back up and dust yourself off and get right back in the game and you'll be fine!! I promise you!! Sooo you're fine, you're just fine. It's a confusing and very messy situation anyway so it's a wonder I don't get confused!!

Wow! That is really something! I sure do hope that you can get all that stuff done and get that house sold as quick as possible! I hope you get a whole lot of people to come and help you out so that you can get the place done and looking good enough to be ready for buyers! I know it won't be an easy job but I know that you can do it with the help of friends and family! So I am wishing you the best and hoping that it will all work out once and for all so that you can finally have once less headache to deal with!

I take it that you saw part one of this discussion? I can't believe mylot would stop at a certain line and not tell me. I was typing away like I had all the room in the world then posted it and found that a chunk of it was missing. Oh talking about mad!! Whew!! It should've stopped so I would've known but it didn't so I had to do a part two and hope that everyone sees it. I honestly don't know how it's going to happen but my jackass of a nephew is suppose to be out by the end of this month. I guess then we'll go up there and paint the whole place as well as clean it really good so to up the chances of it selling and faster. It sure as hell isn't going to sell in the state my jackass nephew is leaving it in. I'm so fed up with my whole family that I just don't care anymore except for my parents and even they can grate on my nerves because they want my help and then they tell me no don't do it because my brother doesn't want me to. I mean, which is it? and who's side are they or even my brother is on? Hubby had a talk with them today and basically told them to leave me alone because I can't take anymore and that I'm broke out with lupus all over due to my nerves and that when they're ready for our help to let us know and they're ok with that, Thank God!! I can't deal with this wishy washy nonsense. Either get with it or get off.

According to my brother and his wife so he says, I was dictating and my husband was giving out orders (retired military) which wasn't the case at all! He's so defensive of his son and not of my parents because "it's their own fault" as if he's never made a mistake in his life!! Yeah right!! Besides, when he made a mistake, they were there for him every step of the way so why can't he do the same? Because he's a self centered @ss, that's why.
