- Wedding: August 2013
So I would not have thought I would be writing in the Emotional Board, but here I am. My family is close but at times a bit volatile. My step brother has biopolar disorder and his wife recently kicked him out and he moved back in with my dad and stepmom. That would be fine except that my dad and stepbrother DO NOT get along. At all. And they’re both to blame. So after a couple weeks I was planning to visit for a weekend and instead Dad called while I was at work on Friday and said he was coming to hide at my house to get away from my stepbrother. That’s okay, we had a nice weekend. But then he can’t go home because he and my stepbrother will seriously hurt each other. But that’s okay, my grandmother is in Florida so he can stay at her house. My grandmother is freaking out in her overly concerned way and makes one too many calls to check on dad and he goes off on her. Tells her that she calls him to much and I think she calls too much (I may have said this at times, but mostly I just get frustrated when she gets mad that I don’t call her back RIGHT AWAY). So then I get a pissed off call from my grandmother. So I am now trying to soothe my grandmother about myself and my dad, calm my dad down about my stepbrother, and keep my stepmother sane and still happy with my dad. And did I mention I’m planning a wedding?
