My incandescent rage, however is at a) Ovarian cancer and b) my siblings and my cousin V who didn't share that cousin M was in hospice. I learned from my mom who learned from my sister who learned from my cousin V. (I did not expect cousin M's immediate family to tell me - they are in their 20s and stressed to be losing their mother. And cousin M would be embarrassed to bother me in the first place.)
However, I'm getting real tired of only hearing from my siblings when they need babysitting. My cousin V, on the other hand, is already embroiled in a years long grudge with family (specifically cousin C, who is cousin M's sister) due to how things went down during my uncle's (cousin C's father) last few weeks of life. Cousin C refuses to attend things that cousin V has been invited to (you wonder where I get it from, as we Italians can hold a grudge). Cousin V has been undependable before, but now it's made worse by her hanging out with my siblings.
Anyway, my family doesn't deal with sickness and death all that well. Even when I was growing up, my mom was only intermittently told about things, and it was hard it when it was about relatives she was close to.
2) I have two phone interviews this week potentially, both VA companies, one in Herndon, ugh I know and the other in Arlington. The first interview is with a company and I am a great fit for with my skillset. The second interview is with a company with a name you'd recognize, but the HR guy can't use a fucking calendar and has tried to confirm phone interviews on the phone or a few hours before day of, saying that he was "booked up" with any time I suggested. At this point, unless HR guy confirms a date/time in advance and keeps it, I'm ignoring him and writing a glassdoor review.
Anyway, if the first phone interview works out, I'm thinking of living in Alexandria.
3) Had a creepy experience with a guy on an app, who was a friend of a friend (not one of yours). Matched with him late (like after midnight) on Wednesday night and we chatted for a bit. He was in my area because he got stranded by an airline. He, not once, but twice, asked if he could uber to my place. LOL no. Aside from everything else, it was after 1am in the morning. I can't explain it, but the way he was insistent about it just creeped me out.
Based on what I know of him online, he either thinks/hopes that is the way how the app works and/or easily misses cues. Both, probably.
4) Bonus: LO went to go see the boy in NYC again. She is willing to give him "one more chance." shakes head
