I Might Take A Beating For This...

I am not trying to be *****y but why start a thread asking for opinions and then argue about people's opinions and observations?? What were you looking for when you started this thread?? If you already know what you are going to do why bother??

Sometimes I think WileE is just thinking out loud, so to speak, as many of us do here. I just hope WileE listens to what she's saying, as well as what others are saying, and that it sinks in.

Let it go WileE! Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

I accept everyone's views; however, I wanted to be specific about certain statements.
As we all know, when we start a thread we are taking a huuuuge risk. I like to read different input b/c in some way I grow more from others' experiences.
I kinda have an idea of what I might do, but as CL said, the thinking out loud helps me many times.
I like to bounce issues/ideas/etc off hubby, as well, you know?
btw...had a GREAT convo w/ m&d yesterday.
Looking forward to new changes in 2012 and a better year
Hope y'all had a great TG...
Fantastic wile!! Great to hear!

Also what is this furniture collateral? Is it valuable antiques? Original Chippendale chair perhaps?

More likely it is a bunch of old crap he is storing at your house for free. Am I right?

Wile, I hope you were able to get some sleep last night. You know we've talked about the GP's in our families. My brother was notorious for using my parents. It was my mom who allowed this, not my dad, but my mom ruled the house. They were out so much money with him and also supplied a lot for his children. Today he is still the GP even tho' he now supports his family and doesn't need money from the parents.

I remember a conversation with my mom about him and she didn't remember him doing the things he did. I don't think she wanted to know what a loser he was. He was her baby boy and could do no wrong. He was the one that got all the attention and my sister and I were ignored. I'll always resent the fact that my parents had a college fund for him and not my sister and I. We were suppose to just get married and have some man support us. When my brother decided he liked drugs more then school I asked if I could use the money for college. I wanted to go to law school. I was told no.

What I'm getting at is that your parents/mom are allowing him to use them. I do know that YOUR concern is for your parents, especially your mom and for the children. Your parents have made their bed and it is really their responsibility to put a stop to this. Of course they won't, but it really shouldn't be your concern. I feel you really need to just let go and concentrate on your husband and child. You really can't do anything with this situation. It should be left to your parents. They raised him, not you. You are trying to protect so many people who probably won't really see it that way. You need to move on with your own life. Why let him affect it.

They get it and have accepted it.. I wish y'all could meet my folks...brings me to tears how I feel about them...
Yep, I do remember our convo about the money for college and your situation...

If he has a good job and enough money to fulfill his child support obligation, what are you considering giving him money for? Christmas presents for the kids?

Hope that clears up some ?s...

Also, I am taking possession of the bed he had stored at my folks b/c it won't fit in the new place he's moving to. He gets his bunk beds back for when his kids come to stay and I will put the new bed in the little one's room. It looks a lot like this one...

What is a GP?

Not so much the guy who keeps messing up his life

It doesn't matter if she's selling them or not. If she's keeping them for collateral, or as repayment for a loan, they're not worth very much. Perhaps she should have them appraised before accepting them in lieu of cash.

Not all antiques are created equal tho and as hubby has said, even GP, it depends on what someone is willing to pay for it...
I have lots in my house and have paid varying amounts, depending on what it was...
Found this, which is quite interesting...

My FIL collected pottery, like Yellow Ware and Fiesta, 17th-19th century jugs, hand-forged kitchenware, handwoven baskets, wood furniture (armoires, buffets, hutches, china cupboards, doughboys, drysinks, etc), original art....and a whole lotta garbage, cat crap, mice, rats, and bugs.

Oh, and books. A hundred f*cking thousand books.
Love old Fiestaware. I collect it.
