Becky - huge hugs. I’m so sorry about your dad and the showdown with stepmom. Some people just do not understand what we go through and your inability to go to your Dad. I know I struggled with that situation myself. It hurts.

This week Matt's best friend and hunting buddy is here. We're sharing stories, playing on the water, and getting honey dos done. Last night he was telling me about a blog he'd found that I'd written during our last trip to Colorado. I can only think that he found one of my threads here, and he said he found it through a picture. I'm not sure how that worked, but he's the first person who has ever mentioned finding me here. Saturday we will visit Matt's row of grape vines at our local winery. I'm trying to treat the week like a vacation (or staycation). The rain can stop any time.

I have made nice with my stepsister, and am getting information about dad through her. I'm not sure my stepmother will ever speak to me again, but I have apologized for losing control and yelling at her. Even though she attacked me first, I need to have more compassion. Sigh. I guess I'm not ready for sainthood yet!! :)

Now, the rain can stop any time!!!

Becky since neither you nor your stepmother are saints, I'm thinking it's ok if you both lost it. If she can't move past that, and you have apologised, that's her extra loss.
Have a wonderful staycation week, you deserve it!

Becky I agree with Tillie and really if she cannot accept your apology do you need her in your life, other than a means to speak with your Dad? Did you have a good relationship prior to this mix up?

Hugs my friend - enjoy you staycation for everything it’s worth!
