The day that my DD graduated high school, she wanted to go out with her friends and DH wanted all of us to go out to dinner as a family on grad night.They got into a horrible argument, and she stormed out and met her friends. Her reasoning what that grad night is the last night from her class everyone would be together, and also we were going to move that summer, so she wanted to spend one last night with her friends, and it was HER who graduated not the whole family. DH argued that it was important event in her life and important events must be shared with family and that she was selfish, etc. DD suggested going out for dinner the following night.DH said we should go out the night you graduate. DH threw in her face all summer about how she ignored her family on grad night.She later told me that every time she sees a graduation, or hears about someone graduating, all she can remember is how DH was screaming at her on her high school grad night and it makes her sad.

My son was supposed to be graduating today. He didn't. He quit school a few months ago. He said he'll do adult school. I just feel sad about it and a failure. My marriage is also in shambles. I have a care giving job a few nights a week and that job makes me feel sad too. There's so much I'd like to do for the patients, but I don't have any money. I'll do what I can for them.

I live on CO and my good friend recently moved to Vegas (significantly closer than where he used to live) and he is constantly asking if he can come visit or if I can go there to see him. And I get it, I would love to have a weekend of fun like we used to, getting drunk and gossiping and dumb stuff like that, but it is such a huge hassle to arrange for someone to watch ds6 and i work every other Saturday as mandatory over time, I don’t really think it’s fair to my son to give up one of those “free” weekends to go to Vegas right now.. but idk how to tell him without hurting his feelings.

We went to see my Dad’s new place today. It’s gorgeous! New paint, appliances, countertops and cabinets, wood plank floors, and a new bathroom vanity I’d LOVE to have. We placed all the furniture and hung all the pictures in our minds, and he said he can hardly wait to move in. C’mon Tuesday!!!

In response to a confession. Idk who took them this morning but for some reason they have to spend tonight here. I am so irritated. This whole side of the family seems to think that since they all work weird hours or not at all that everyone else is free when they are. I have to be up at 5 tomorrow, I already told them I can’t babysit today. I’m not helping once I put ds to bed. One of the kids said their mom told them that my other sil and I were watching them. No, I was not involved in this plan at all.

My dad had a realtor out last night. She told him his house is dated, the outside is run down from neglect and the inside is considered not liveable from the filth (he hasn’t let anyone in the house in five years). She told him if he spends $3000 to have the house cleaned he might get about $1000 more than he owes. He called me today and said he’s going to walk away from the house. He and my mom built that house together 32 years ago. I guarantee you she’s rolling in her grave. <sad>

My mom is a hoarder and her basement is wall to wall junk, and every piece of junk has emotional value to her. When she eventually moves out it's going to be a disaster.

In response to a confession. Actually, my dad hasn’t done one thing to prepare for the move. He says he’s going to do something, then when I ask about it a couple days later, he says he hasn’t done it yet. I’ve got to step away or I’ll go nuts. Yes, I’m a perfectionist, and yes, I like to get things done before the last minute. But my dad, for whatever reason, isn’t doing what needs to be done. I haven’t been in his house in six years because he always has a reason I can’t go in. DH was there last week and glanced into the house from the garage (where he’s removing a pick up truck full of trash every two days!), and said it’s a hoarding situation. So I’m dealing with getting him into his apartment then I’m done. He can spend every day cleaning the house out, or it can sit there forever. I’m done offering to make everything easier for everyone else.

In response to a confession. It actually sounds to me like it's going really well. When my dad had to move from his house.... OMG I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. It was like he just refused to even participate. It was awful. Be very glad you're selling the house now. My dad's house- he wouldn't let anyone touch it, even though he was unable to live there. Then when he passed - OMG another nightmare dealing with 60yrs worth of ..just shit.. junk. Trash, even. A lot of trash. Be glad the house is going now. It caused serious rifts between some of the siblings too. My brother is still pissed that I have some lamps that he wanted, but got drunk and never showed up to get from the house.
