Brother 1: so I got this new video game and you should your roomie that she and I should play it and I think she would like it
Brother 2: I started playing football again and I really want you to come home and see me play and we can go do things
Sister: I’m babysitting your niece and nephew today (my bffs kids, whom my sis sees more than I do) they are so adorable omg
Mom: I took the dogs for a walk, and went shopping
I haven’t talked to them in like a month and this is what they talk to me about.
Then, my dad comes on the phone and actually gives me news like how my mom is having knee surgery, and what he’s been doing at work lately and how my brothers are doing in school and about how brother 1 signed up for the army and depending on how he does this school year, he could ship off to boot camp in June. Y’know, important stuff that I need to know. Thanks dad. Mom never tells me anything.
I feel like a broken record today. This morning it was “I honesty don’t know anything” over and over. Now it’s “We don’t have it. Next week” over and over.
My family never tells me anything important! I talked to my mother last week, told her about good stuff happening with work, and she talked about the dogs. Then I find out that my little brother was thinking of joining the army! She never told me. Now he has a date to ship off to boot camp and again, she never told me. I had to text my sister and ask about it. Ugh!
