Family Drama and New Relationships
Ok, I try to stay away from family drama...but this still bugs me. In fact, if I ever see this woman again, I'm going to smack her across the face. Hard.
My Papa recently divorced his 2nd wife (who none of us have -ever- liked) because she was cheating with someone she met on World of Warcraft. Their daughter, my half-aunt, caught her and the guy in the act, and now she's going through counseling, crying all of the time, and hates her life because her mom (Papa's now ex-wife) told her during the divorce that it was entirely her fault for being born; that it's her fault her parents are broken up because if she hadn't told Papa what she'd seen then they'd still be together and that she never wanted to see her again because she had ruined her life, and then she dumped sole custody onto my almost 70 year old Papa (my half-aunt is fourteen!)...needless to say, both Papa and the girl are heart-broken. I don't like to say I truly hate people, but this woman...I've never been close to my half-aunt, but you do -not- say that to a kid! Especially when it's not their fault! Like I said, if I ever see her again, she gets a smack in the face. Maybe a punch.
Fast-forward to now (that was a few months ago).
My Papa is trying to start dating again (mental giggle), and he's met someone he really likes. I'm glad he has, but I am not fond of the woman. She's not a bad person by any means, but we clash. Badly.
She is insanely religious, loathes swear words or anything negative word (this includes but is not limited to "Shut up" "hate" "dang!"). I've met her twice now (she's in town visiting some of her remaining family in VA Beach) and she stopped by to say Hello. I am not foul-mouthed, but I don't really watch my language, either. She's -very- old fashioned (and when I say old fashioned, I mean, she would have been old fashioned when she was a KID, too), and disapproves that we have a big TV (or really a TV at all) and constantly comments on what I do that involves Nina. Nina, I'm sadly glad to say, does not seem to like her. Everything I do, she disagrees with. The way I dress, the things we eat, having a microwave, watching TV/movies with Nina, taking Nina on a bike ride with the trailer, never using a baby bonnet, that I don't make my own baby-food or grow any vegetables (Im in an apartment complex, for crying out loud), the noisy kids in the upper apartments, my Legend of Zelda stuff and Dragon Statuettes, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY BOOKS (She almost thought Good Omens was a good book, until I told her it was a comedy about Armageddon and the antichrist)...just. UGH. GO HOME already! Lol! I do not like you! I think the only thing she approves of is that I'm a stay at home mom, and not working, but that wasn't by choice, really, either. She was only here for like an hour, and I have a massive headache now. I'm glad Papa likes her, but for the love of god, keep her out of my apartment!
