I was more upset with Sophia trying to handle me. As I reflected back on the whole ordeal, she only contacted me when she needed me. Point is (isn't it always about the point?) she reneged on her word. She sent Granny down here without assisting on getting her set-up. Not understanding that my schedule isn't as flexible to check on her daily nor is my budget free to fill in the gaps needed to help her live comfortably. Not once has she contacted me to see if things were okay with Granny's transition. What was the point, Sophia? Did you in fact take all of our Great-Aunt's money and shipped ol' Gran down here to get her out of your hair? Wouldn't her own sister leave her some inheritance? I don't care about any money, but I care about the point...honestly, integrity, and standing on your word.
Ugh, family is trying to get me caught up in this mess. Heck no, family - this is a group effort! I'm grown now so I can say what I want. I've earned a few stripes to enable me to articulate my thoughts. Hmph! I refuse to be put in the middle of this war between family. I was fine on my own with my child all the way down here in Charlotte, out of the way of words and accusations. Wait, I think they are all trying to handle me! Yep, it's time that I speak up and let them all know that they need to take care of their mother and set their petty differences aside. I can't do this alone. There is no time for "out of sight, out of mind." (Yeah, they're playing that game right now.)
Hmph! Like an old friend used to say, "You can't spit on me and tell me it's raining."
