I mean in less your on the run from the law, but I'd doubt very much you'd be sending out change of address cards if you were on the lamb. If you would well you might want to re-thinking being a fugitive as I don't believe you'd be very good at it.

Otherwise, you're a grown up, if you wanna quit your job and move half way around the world that's really only your business.

Yes, I'd leave the crazy be. Though I'd be tempted to write back "Yes, Aunt, with the economy the way it is I'm getting very concerned, we're running low on food here, we might have to eat the cat. Can I come live with you?", but...I'm evil.

Glitter, my iPad now has egg nog on it.

I knew without you saying anything that you had gone south.  This envious Michigander wishes you all the best!

I'm definitely not engaging, because, seriously - who needs the drama?  Assumptive Aunt should really focus on her own family and their issues, wouldn't you think?

Personally, I would send a reply, just something simple like I moved here to take an amazing job offer, am looking for the right home near work after moving from cold state, and moving sometime in the spring. Happy new year. Blah, blah, blah.

Quick Update

Last night, my parents had to share a Busy Body Aunt update.  In spite of my parents not getting email from Aunt and Uncle in months, yesterday, my parents got a two line email from them.  It included the temperature at our Southern Town (9 degrees) and Busy Body'sTown.  However, they claimed it was 50 degrees at Busy Body's Town - my sister lives about 100 miles away and was at 26 degrees.  My Dad checked their zip code on the Weather Channel and it was 24 degrees in their town.

Since we are already at 40 degrees and will be in the 60s by Saturday, I'm sure we won't hear from Busy Body Aunt (and Uncle) until we have a heat wave.

( and for kckgirl - I did send a change of address card and 1 email reply to the first inquiry - the daily deluge for a week was not responded to)

I'm just trying to figure out how any of this is BusyBodyAunt's business.  Sheesh!

I agree with everyone who said just not to engage her.  Good luck in your house hunting and with your new job!
