Has anyone had to deal with real difficult family members after their loved one has passed? I know that most of us have I am just curious as to how you get through this. In the beginning I felt like it was my obligation to be nice because they were family, but now they are fighting dirty and I feel I need to protect myself and my family and I am ready to play the game the way they play it. My dad passed in December and his eldest sister has been very difficult since. She moved his body without my knowing and I had to beg, beg, beg, to get his ashes from her. I was not in the will but I was to be executrix of it. Since nothing was left to me(which I know why he did it this way and I am fine about) I signed over the executrix to her. I didn't want to have to get involved with their family issues. They give a whole new meaning to dysfunctional. I didn't contest the will, I think I gave them everything they wanted and now they want to sue me for monetary gifts my dad gave me before he passed. His sister is full of greed and hate, she's even suing his housemate for missing liquor!!! Ok she's insane!!! I don't want anything to do with her, but she is family. I feel like it's best to keep her out of my life, but I struggle with how my dad would feel about this. Then again I know he would hate how his sister is treating me.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
