Insensitive, Stingy and, Distrustful
My SD59 was over today. She had called last week with one of her huge exaggerations where she spun daughter's digestive problem into cancer. During that call, I kept my cool and didnt buy into the hysterics. At one point, she said, " I guess you must not be real sensitive like me" So, I'm insensitive.
She was here today. I made vegetable soup yesterday and saved enough for DH and my dinner tonight. But she has health issues and eats crap so I offered her some soup to take home and she gladly accepted. (When she lived here, she ate it wolfishly). I put some in a go-bowl and put the lid on it. My back was turned to her but DH was laughing. He said, you should have seen her face. Apparently she opened the lid and pouted because it wasn't filled to the top. I said, the rest is for our dinner. He said, give her my share (of course he did). I did but bottom line, im stingy.
She had come over to give me money to compensate for an expense that is charged to us monthly. I planned to go to the bank but had to do some other financial things first. As she was leaving, she offered to stop by the bank for me. I said, no, I'm going later. She said under her breath, "She doesnt trust me". Shes right, I dont but that wasnt the issue right then. So, I'm distrustful.
So often, when I read other people's posts, my replies boil down to "Don't take it personally" and " Dont stress the small stuff". I need to listen to my own advice. Lol.
