I am such a cheery little thing aren’t I?
My parents and my brother came to visit. My mother spent a good part of the time telling me what I am doing wrong with my family, husband, job, religion, decorating, cleaning, finances and in great detail. Then she told me how to fix them all. Good times!
My brother pretty much told my son what a low life he is and how could he do this to his family…then he preceded to tell me how he raised his kids and gave me pointers every chance he got and he of course helped my mother expand on all the issues in the above paragraph. More good times!
Then my brother refused to come to our house because we have not flown out to see his 8,000 square foot house in the exclusive gated community of Golden. Nor have we seen his Condo in downtown Denver that will be featured in a new HGTV show that will air in January. He rents this condo out to famous professional sports figures. I guess the show is like House Hunter’s for famous people???
On my birthday my brother insisted we go to a place where he might see some old friends. I hated it. I invited everyone over for pizza and cake. He refused to come over. It took me awhile to figure out that it was because we won’t fly to Colorado to see his place.
My mother clearly favors my brother and doesn’t really even pretend that there is any kind of equality in this equation. My father is Switzerland but I feel that he favors me but I am not convinced my brother doesn’t think the same thing.
All in all my life has been filled with positivity and good times…you do know I am being sarcastic right?
