Around the 5th of February we found out Keyron’s mom had died at home. So a few days later we flew down to North Carolina and we’ve been cleaning out the house getting everything packed up, food eaten etc.
Thoughts I had his younger brother won’t have a place to go to escape his wife anymore. And I’ll miss the philosophical discussions I had with my MIL.
And as is usual Keyron’s older brother was supposed to be here today. Well a little birdie told us he and his wife were in Las Vegas and having trouble getting a flight. It also emerged that they left for Vegas after they knew is Mama died. Now I recall arguments between Keyron and his older brother who constantly picked on Keyron. At one point his older brother uttered “That’s MY momma”. Yeah your momma that you cared so much about that you never helped her when she needed things. Meanwhile Keyron and I sent numerous things to his mother. So I’m trying to be the better person but it’s damnably difficult for me. For me to not make any snarky comments well it’ll be my tongue being bitten repeatedly.
In fact the older brother is on the phone right now with his younger brothers wife. I won’t say a damned thing. But I’ll tell you one thing – older brother is on my shit list now.
