Raising Your Parents

Post by T-Boyd » 26-07-06, 11:56 am

As many of you know, my stepdad died a few months ago....he was a great man - never a harsh word about anyone and he treated my mother like a gem.

He and my mom built their house a couple of years ago....a monstrosity of a thing......much too much room for the two of them. But I digress....

After his death, my mother said that she couldn't sell the house because all of his memories were there. A touching sentiment, I know. But then, last Saturday, she calls me to tell me that she had put the house on the market on the previous Friday!!! It seems that she now feels "uneasy" with his "memories" around the house! :shock:

Mom seems a little dismayed that she didn't receive as much as she thought she would from his insurance policies and his pension (he worked for the railroad) has been cut in half. So she's selling the house (asking $309,000) so she can buy a $280,000 condo in some GATED community (gated.......to keep US out, perhaps?).

Rhea (the stepdad) was husband number FOUR! Mom had said on numerous occasions that she wanted to marry for security, so I'm starting to believe that she is nothing but money-hungry.

Like I stated, Rhea was a wonderful man and I hate to see him being "taken advantage of" like this. What's a son to do?

Selling up to get a cheaper property, so she can spend the difference on a wild trip to Vegas perhaps, and screw you out of your inheritance :P

or find husband number 5!! Usually when they get older and have more money they marry for looks instead of security.
Earth is the insane asylum for the universe.
