The Saga With Pops Continues
I wrote about my Dad wanting to put our mom in a home after 46 years of marriage. She has Parkinson's with dementia pretty bad now. He held a meeting with us grown kids informing us of his plans and then had the nerve to introduce us to his "Flame" on the side.
Since then, he has placed Mom in the home and boxed up and liquidated all of their stuff. This new woman has moved right in complete with her and her two teenaged children and it really looks as if she's found her Sugar Daddy!
My Dad spoke briefly to my brother about getting a divorce so he can "move on with his life". My brother has actually encouraged him and I found out that the reason he is being so supportive is being in charge of my parents "Will". He's fool enough to believe that my Dad won't end up spending it all on this new floozy he has in his life.
Pops has gone out and bought a VERY Expensive ring for her and is acting like some sort of lovesick teenager! He hasn't visited my Mom even once since his excuse now is that its just too painful for him to see her! Doesn't he really mean he feels Too Guilty?
I am so very angry and hurt by my Pops actions that I can't bring myself to even return his phone calls. He keeps saying that its HIS TURN NOW to live a life.
What happened to the man we used to call Dad? This floozy he is with is almost the same age as we are and he is clearly in lust with her. I can't believe what a fool he is believing she is really in love with him.
My offer to take Mom into my home fell on deaf ears and now I go visit her each evening when I get off work so I can share a meal with her. I feel so bad for her and how he has abandoned her in her hour of need.
My other sister is concerned for my Dad saying this woman is a black widow and he is the third "older man" she has become involved with so quickly. At this point i told her she can handle that end as I'm not concerned about him, my concern is with my Mom right now.
Just not sure what to do at this point.
