My sister's birthday is today. I have leaned on her mightily this year. She isn't the best gift giver and I don't care! She gives in so many other ways.

I sent her a Columbia fleece vest! My Mom started an email to all of us three girls and told what she is sending her. I added what I was sending her. My other sister says this and includes everyone:
I'm not sending her jack shit because she never sends me jack shit.

They have never gotten along too well. I can barely speak to my "jack shit" sister as she is so judgmental of me.

I want to reply but don't know what to say. Or, crickets?

The conditions we face do not define us. They remind us of who we are and who we want to be.

I wouldn't say anything. Let them hash it out.


Walk away from anything or anyone who takes away your joy. Life is too short to put up with fools.

Chirp chirp, rachel. I wouldn't step into that for all the money in the world.

yes, she wants a reaction from us, although birthday sister will not respond in any way, I know her.

But, what a crappy thing to do. I guess my limited contact with judgmental sister continues to be the right thing to do....

I'm limited contact with my judgmental/toxic sister. Best decision I ever made.

She likes to send texts that need no reply. Yet, she always expects an "ok" reply for everything. The rebel that I am, I don't send the "ok." I know it drives her crazy, but I don't care.


When one door closes, another door opens. It's the journey through the hallway that sucks.
