Is anybody out there? I am not a comment whore or anything, but if you could drop a line, it would help. My tracker is broken and I am starting to feel lonely here in cyberspace, not knowing if anyone still reads this thing.


My relationship with Cool Aunt was severed yesterday. It was inevitable. She engages in abusive behavior with everyone in her life, and it is just like me to have put up with it for two years before finally standing up for myself. Needless to say, she couldn't exactly handle the "I don't care for being spoken to that way" assertion, leading her to say some vindictive things. We are finished.

It is yet another loss, but I am trying to put a real value on relationships right now. Is a one-sided, emotionally abusive relationship valuable simply because the other person is a blood relation? I used to think so, but now I'm not so sure.

I have an uncle that's incredibly destructive and oddly immature for someone in his 60s. A few years ago my mom and I cut him out of our lives for the simple reason that he brings us down. I told my mom "you can love and forgive him, but it doesn't mean he has the right to make you feel bad or put his destructive tendencies into your life." Since then, smoooth sailing and far less drama.

Running in all breathless to say, "I'm here!"

So sorry I was late!
