I am afraid of my sister. She has always bossed me and I have always let her, but it has gotten out of hand.
I looked after my father for over twenty years, without any compensation, except for my food and clothing, while my sister was married. My father chased any chance I had of getting married. He died last year and left both my sister and me each a house and money from all his real estate.
My sister wants me to give up my house to her son, who is getting married this year. When I asked her where would I live, she said, with me, you can rent a room in my house. Does that seem fair to you, Lily?
She is putting pressure on me, as she controls the funds from the estate. I need to put a lock on my door, because she comes over with her key and takes things that belong to me.
What can I do to safeguard my home from her?
Lonely in Hollywood
You need to get some legal advice to keep her out of your home. A good deadbolt should keep her out of your house while you are absent. If you lack money, take out a loan and do the things you were never able to do when you were younger. GET A LIFE! Once your sister finds you are not easily frightened, she will begin to respect you.
I am about to be homeless. When my husband died, I gave our house to my son. He has always been a good son, but last year he got married. His wife doesn't like living with her mother-in-law, and told him to sell the house I had put in his name after my husband had died. She wants to live in Las Vegas. When asked if I was to go with them, she told my son, No, put her in a home for the elderly, her Social Security will pay for it.
What can I do?
Without a prayer
Tell your son that you don't want to be homeless, to give you back the house. Maybe his wife will not stay around if he doesn't have the house to bargain with. I'm sure your son will not put up a struggle when you explain that eventually the house will be his when you die.
Christmas this year was almost spent without the Christmas spirit. I felt that the real feeling of Christmas Cheer was understated. It seems that the more you buy the more is expected. It has become so commercialized.
Why has Christmas become so expensive? Do you know that many children think it is Santa's day? No one teaches them that it is someone's birthday.
Christmas is a Holy Day to most people, but to some it is a day to make money or get gifts.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
