Sandwiched

by Marie
(Texas)

I am very nervous as my siblings are going to be here and it is the first time in 5 years and then it was just for a day.


Anyway, there is an underlying current between all of us. We are to discuss what we are going to do with our parent. This parent doesn't know this and thinks that when the time comes this parent will live with me. I thought I could handle this, but now I don't want it.

I want my siblings to take her with them for 2 years and then switch her to the other siblings for 2 years and then I will take her for 2 years after everyone else has taken their turn. I have been here for this parent for all of my life and they have moved off and been unavailable and now I want them to step up to the plate.
