First things first: I would like to thank all who have commented on my last post. Your words, perspectives, advice, and wisdom are all appreciated. I need all that I can get. Taking time to write I also appreciate.
Things since that day have improved: my sister is in a program and my mother has improved dramatically. But there are still future storms: my sister does not know all her things have been moved home, nor does she know the apartment is no longer her domain. If she is attending this program to get her car and apartment back, she’s in for a big surprise. And a temper tantrum.
Interestingly, despite my mother’s insistence that we all stay home, my father has been helping my brother and me find an apartment close to home we can move into. So I may still move out soon. All in due time.
Again, thanks so very much.
