This thread has always stuck in my head a little bit, i think because it seemed like you were trying to do a really nice thing helping your aunt out and yelling at you at work was just so crazy. It sounded, too, like something my siblings family (they are married to siblings) would do so maybe that is why it stuck with me. I can just see it happening in my head. I hope that doesn't sound stalkerishly odd I am glad things have smoothed over; i think you handled it very gracefully. It will be nice not to have the bad feelings hanging around, i bet.
Not stalkerish at all! And thank you! You are right, it definitely makes it better. I will have to interact with her at my work, and at family events, and it is nice not to be getting dirty looks anymore, or mean comments from her. In fact, she called my work yesterday and I was the one that answered the phone. Thankfully she was very nice to me.
It's sad to say, but I don't trust her. So, while I am glad we can get along again, I don't have any desire to resume the old relationship
with her. We always went to the movies together, or went to the city shopping, or I would stay at her house and we would watch movies, and we exchanged books all the time. She doesn't have alot of friends to run around with, and I was that for her.
Thank you everyone!
