Hubby has a large family, but he mostly connects with his older brother, his wife, hubby's cousin and her husband. We reconnected about six months ago and we are at the point where we don't want to interact with them anymore. Anything good that happens to us means little comments come our way that we are rich, etc. I just took a new job with a promotion which means more money, but I have to commute 45 minutes back and forth home. So, we traded in my SUV for a new car, newest car I ever had, and ever since his cousin, who I talked to daily, won't talk to me anymore. Since Christmas, which was materialistically nice for our kiddos and ourselves, they've been fairly rude to me. I've kept my mouth shut and have ignored it, but today I made the decision to stop trying. My husband and my sister tell me that is the right thing to do, but it just hurts to have gotten so close and to be thrown away because financially we are doing better. We aren't throwing it anyone's faces, but I worked hard for my master's degree to be able to make a good living. I'm looking for a 2nd job as an online professor to help pay some debt we have and afford some things for my kids. Both the cousin and my sister in law choose not to work. My husband and I both work. I think part of it is that the cousin has dropped hints that she needed help with bills this month, and I didn't offer anything. I won't either. She didn't pay us back last time and she expects a lot of people to help her out financially. I just needed to get this out.
