Stress is high around here

Things in our household are on the verge of exploding. My sister and I are so stressed out right now it's a powder keg. Every week there's something new with the Escrow company or the underwriter or the insurance company. Since my sister is the one who is actually buying the house she is super stressed and that brings out the worst in people doesn't it? Tonight we had an argument that ended with her telling me she didn't want me moving with her to the new house. I've been hearing that more and more or something along those lines anyway. If I say something about the house she gets this look on her face that says "What do you care, it's not your house"

It's funny how in the beginning it was "Let's buy a house" now it's just "her" house. Which, technically, her name is the only one on all the paperwork (it worked out that way due to the city program we went with and their annual income requirements, not to mention her credit rating is a bit better than mine) but I just feel like she left me swingin' in the breeze. Then threatening me with not having a place to live at every other turn seems a bit passive aggressive. It doesn't help that she uses "we" and "our" a lot...I'm getting confused. I sense a long talk is in our not too distant future.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Understandable vent! Yes, the long talk IS in order by the sounds of things.

That sucks. I hope the talk sorts things out.

Vent away I say!
It is always stressful buying a house... I am sure once the move is finalised all will be forgiven and forgotten and you will be able to enjoy happier home making times.

You poor thing! Vent away! That really sucks! Sisters are funny people, my sister and I have a rather difficult relationship. I hope it all works out - and soon!
