I have had the worst week. First, my dad and I have it out because he thinks that I am trying to steal his rental property. It is a long story but basically my dad is an alcoholic and all his life he has thought that some one is trying to rob him and now I think he has early signs of dementia but it doesn’t bother me that he thought I was attempting to steal his property (his new tenant mailed me the rental check in stead of him, and I cashed it the same day and took it to him) but what bothers me is that my oldest brother thought/thinks the same thing. Thank goodness I have other siblings including my uncle who all know better and who called him and gave him (my brother) a piece of their minds. But to make a long story short I will no longer over see his rental property or anything else for him. I did tell my dad but I know by next week he will be calling but the brother who accused me can handle it from here on out and he will soon find that is not an easy job especially when you are not being paid.
Then I spend a ton of money for hurricane supplies, even though the storm is way south of us we should start feeling some strong winds in addition to a lot of rain
And yesterday I went to see a friend and her niece who is also my friend who is a nurse is in a terrible situation. We have to keep in mind that just because it appears as though people are doing well they really aren’t. In her case she has a car in which she has not made a car payment in over a year and will not turn in the car, she has lost her last 4 jobs and now is at another place, in addition to the car she has a ton of other bills
On a different note I watched all my rental movies from the library today, I don’t know why I never picked up movies from their before. I just had a nice relaxing day today.

    I'm sorry your having such a bad time. This must be very difficult for you. As long as you know in your heart that you are doing what's right that is the best you can do.

    Sorry about your dad and brother. That's really tough.

    And good for you getting movies from the library!

    Sorry to hear about the falling out with your family. I think it is best for them to handle it. Make or break, at least it's out of your hair now.

    You're talking about Ike right? Unlike Hannah, Ike is a strong one. Hope things will turn out fine for you.

    i am sure you are familiar with my own parental problems - (with money etc and the family business). i am also trying to just let them handle their own finances. i say, just let your brother and father learn by themselves! you can be rest assured they will get either a rude shock at all the work they now have to do, or otherwise they'll make big mistakes and have to start at the bottom of the ladder again. Smile best wishes.

    It is difficult to deal with business and family at the same time. I can understand both sides of the problem too. Even though you took the money to him after cashing the check, you still cashed it.
    Did the renter know you were his daughter and gave it to you to save a step?
    My landlord and his daughter have a set up sorta like that.
    She lives at the end of 8 houses that are all doubles. She owns the last one and has a tennat there, but takes our rent money and transfers it to her parents.
    Having your other sibling who was on his "side" may help in lessing the confussion too.
    You'll get through it, I promise.

    Yeah she sent it to me by accident, she was to send me the lease but I think to save money on the stamp she sent everything to me
