Stepford Sister is drinking the Kool-Aid...
So in an effort to coordinate a holiday get together I phoned Stepford Sister yesterday. I, personally, had not heard from her in over two weeks and neither have my parents. No calls, texts or emails. For all we knew she was dead in a ditch somewhere, but I digress...
Turns out Easter is the last thing on her mind as she cannot find a suitable home in Charming town and Prince is getting very frustrated with her. She is being forced to renegotiate her sellers contract as she has no where to go, other than move in with Prince and his parents, or possibly lose her current buyer.
Prince is beside himself that she is unable to settle on a home. Evidently, Prince has NEVER owned a home... At 55 years old this man has never owned a home, always rented. :jawdrop: She told me everything in her price range is an absolute dump that would require serious overhaul and Prince is not "handy like that." Apparently, homes in Prince town don't age well due to the extreme heat and clay soil. And she does not want to settle for some cookie cutter suburban home. She wanted a place more on the historic side.
She lamented how much she loves her home and by all accounts it's adorable. It's well suited for her, has been renovated and is in a fantastic locale. Think two blocks walking distance to a hip main drag. And that since she works from home, she does not want to be trapped in a home she knows would make here miserable.
But, then she changed track. She feels so bad about disappointing the mini-wives. It's such a hardship that the mini-wives have to stay at Prince's parents house during visitation. I mean, my god, they both have to sleep on futons in the two guest rooms. They can't play their music loud. And aren't comfortable bringing their friends over. *cry me a river*
The mini-wives have been accompanying them on ALL of the house showings and giving their opinions readily. She's overwhelmed by how wonderful their opinions are. If they house isn't going to be a good fit for THEM they vocalize it without fear of reproach because they are such "strong, independent girls". Not close enough to friends, the bedrooms aren't big enough, they don't like the colors, etc. And she can't wait to be a part of their lives. She is going to be the "hippest stepmom ever because she treats them with respect and equality and it will bring them all cloer."*insert eye roll here* Mind you this is a woman with no child rearing experience.
So as I continued to listen to this word vomit, she goes on to say she's just going have to settle because she can't let Prince and his mini-wives down any longer. Prince has to commute 45 minutes to see Stepford Sister and it "just isn't fair to him." After all she's the one who works from home and should "bear the brunt of the compromise here." In other words, bend over and take it up the a$$ for Prince and the minis. Screw your life, Sister or your needs and dreams. You've found a MAN now... And we all know that a MAN solves all your problems. Jesus, I feel like the phone conversation alone with her set back the Women's Rights Movement 30 years! Is it too early to start drinking?
