Drama queen. She does no housework, my dad does it all. All she does is bitch about him spending money on soda, cigarettes, and folds laundry. He was at his same job for 25 years and is now retired, and she wants him to get a job so he isn't so pissy about her spending money. Yet she works just below full time for $8/hr.
I don't understand how you can continue having any contact with her. All I've gathered from what you've said about her is that she's unloving, has the maturity of a child, and is incredibly hurtful to an emotionally abusive point. Did she curse and tell like that in front of Rory, too? I know she's your blood, but she sounds unstable and horribly mean. I couldn't let someone like that stay in my life, and definitely not Liam's.
Not trying to make you feel bad for choosing to still see/talk to her, because it's not my life nor my position to make that decision - just wanna understand why you keep the relationship going when it seems so rotten.

Yeah he was there too :evil:
She lives 2 miles away so no avoiding her really. Especially because my father is great, he's a really wonderful man. I want him and Rory to have as much of a relationship as possible, so with that we have to see her too. It's one major reason we want to move. To get her out of our daily life and just see her a couple times a year.
But overall you have her pretty well pegged. You see her crap on facebook too I'm sure.
