I will love him until the end of time

But the fact that he is trying to sabotage me getting a better house and moving isn't nice.

Apparently he thinks that by telling people around me not to support me by doing this or NOT doing that, he can "win".

*shakes head and sighs*

We are also still arguing. Because I refuse to accept his terms.

I will love him until the end of time.

He has tried to lose me my renters. I talked to them this AM and told them what he was doing. They said that they figured that was it and while they valued his advice, they pretty much saw that and didn't pay much attention to him.

I went off on him about the cost of living where he wants THEM to move to. A house the size of my current one would sell for no less than $125,000. To rent one the size of mine would cost anywhere from $700-$1000 per month depending on what part of the city you are in. Partly because the property taxes are so high. Again, a house the size of mine for property taxes would cost about $750 or more a half. Mine is right at $500. That's cheap in THIS county.

My renters are family. My foster sister and her BF. He went on and on about how you should not do for family because you would be in for trouble and they take advantage, blah blah blah. Of course they do. Which is why I've heard the stories a gazillion times about his sister who moved and moved and moved because she would rent a home and then it would sell and that continued for about 5 times before PAPAW went out and purchased a home and moved her into it and RENTED it to her. He also purchased the two other houses around it and moved FAMILY (sibblings) into those and RENTED it to them as well. This is the same man who tells how he has given money and has helped family and done and done and done for everyone around him.

So sure, can't rent to family - certainly don't follow in his footsteps and help people by giving them a break - like he did.

I didn't tell him we could get out of the contract. Because if I did then he would be riding me about HIM finding a house out THERE by him in BFE - WEED district.

You know, its really nice out THERE. It's beautiful and quiet and friendly. The biggest problems - one for Stan is driving distance to highway; one for me - its the WEED school district.

He said to me yesterday "Get out of this contract and I will find you a nice house." I said to him "We will get out of the contract and Stan and I will find ourselves a nice house where we want to live."

He never said a word.

I would hope that I'm making it quite clear to him that he cannot control me and that I do respect him but that I'm an adult who can stand on her own two feet and not need to rely on him for financial support.

I will love him until the end of time.

I'm telling you how to win this thing
Just say
"OK, If you want US to live closer to you - here are my requirements(insert here). If a house can not be found near you, build it. Since you want US to be closer to you and the school district you live is unacceptable, you will be paying for private school for both kids."

I think that will zip it.

OMG - This house that is like my favorite house to look at on the outside is up for sale! Its directly across the street from Madison schools.

Too bad Stan doesn't want to live in that area - I'd be all over checking it out.

Yeah, if P thought I would only move over there and he would have to pay private schooling he would definitely zip it as he has said not to expect any help from him.

I recall Nana saying that once. Then later she felt guilty and offered me the money and I refused her. She was completely stunned.
