Welcome to Thursday Coffee Hour. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is on your mind. Today I am thinking about what it is like to be responsible.
With the death of my brother I am now the oldest sibling in my family. I have always been the only girl so that came with special responsibilities. My younger brothers are leaving it to me to get the house ready to sell. I am responsible for cleaning out my parent’s and brother’s house. I am going to be responsible for trying to clean up the financial mess my brother made of everything.
You know something? It sucks having to be the responsible one. One brother helped me out and stayed as long as he could. One brother has M.S. and can’t come out and help. The other brother was out of work for seven months and didn’t have the money to come out. My niece has three school age kids so she couldn’t stay. She is falling apart any ways because of her Dad’s death. She is going through the guilt of not being able to save him even though there was nothing she could have done. So I have to hold her up and keep her going.
I have decided when everything is done and over with and the house is sold I’m taking off for England to see my friends and enjoy myself. I’ve been through Hell the last couple of years and when I get done being responsible I’m going to go have some fun.
