Whoa. I need to take a breath. I seriously can't stand family sometimes! Not kidding! I grew up in a very small "family unit". Most people have the mom/dad/brother/sister and then extended family close either physically or emotionally. That's not how I was raised. At.All. My parents met in January and were married in July of the same year....and neither of my grandma's wanted it to happen. So, when my parents got married they made the decision to move far enough away to make their own family unit. And, so they did....my family growing up was my mom, dad, brother and sister. Even through all of our issues, it was us against the world. That was my family unit. I was never super duper close to my extended family, none of us kids are really. Now, don't get me wrong, I love my grandparents to pieces! I really do, but I'm not overly close to them, and especially not close to aunts/uncles/cousins.
To compound that slight issue, my mom's family dislikes us and we, equally if not more, dislike them. Ever since my grandpa died the issues have only compounded more and more and more and more. Let's just leave it at: after my grandpa died, I don't think my brother, sister and I have been in the same room as my cousins/aunt/uncle. Not kidding. We've (my parents included) have avoided any unnecessary contact with them. B is over nine months old and he's never met anyone on that side of the family. Not a single person....and I told Jamie that if she even thought about taking him to that negative of a place/home then I would physically harm her. I was only like 1/4 kidding. My grandma passed away in the middle of March. I have yet to receive anything out of the will. And, my aunt tells my mom that she's only been in the house once -- and that was the time that my mom called and told her to meet us there. Well, my aunt got my grandma to sign over the house to her before she passed away. Whatever. I didn't want the house, but regardless, I don't think that was right. Well, my aunt has decided to give the house to my cousin I guess. Again, whatever. The issues I have with all of this (yes, I'm airing dirty laundry, I'm that pissed right now)....
1 - My aunt thinks that my mom should pay half of everything for the house. Um. No. My mom doesn't own that house. I told mom to not pay for anything....she said she was going to appease my aunt until we got our stuff from the will....my response? Fine, pay what you wish, but DON'T pay for shit after my cousin moves in.
2 - My aunt *deceived* my one uncle to pay for the home owner's insurance.
3 - My aunt tells my mom that she's not been in the house, but she lives five minutes away, and her daughter is moving in there at some point? I don't believe her. Not at all.
4 - My cousin that's moving into the house posts things like this (taken directly from her fb):
