In response to a confession. Thank you ladies, this is a terrible thing for ds to have to deal with. TacoBelle, he did tell them exactly that, which resulted in his dad screaming at him, complete with F-bombs :( The craziest part is that even though he has a LOT of clothes here, he says he has twice as much there - but there are only six days out of the month that he's able to wear them, so he can't even wear them all. I'm so tired of hearing "take it out of the child support." It's $550/mo and I pay for EVERYTHING. All school expenses including trips, extracurriculars, now everything for graduation. I also bought ds a car and pay the insurance & repairs. His dad will sign him up for an EC, pay the intro price, then if ds wants to continue, it's all on me. They literally make 2x as much as we do and they have no other kids.

Now I'm really pissed. I've posted before about how my ex doesn't let ds bring anything from his house to ours (ds lives here). Not even things he has bought with his own money, so I've frequently had to pay for duplicates. Ds turned 18 a little while ago and received GCs from his paternal grandmom and stepgrandmom. He used them to buy some clothes and made the mistake of telling his dad and stepmom. They've demanded that ds bring not only the clothes back to their house, but the cards too! They actually told him that since my ex pays child support (it continues to 19, or 23 if the child is at home and going to school), then that's what's to be used for clothes here, and money from that side of the family is not to be taken or used here. Ds is really angry, and it hurts me that they keep doing this to him.

In response to a confession. I was very underemployed for a long time. I never wanted to do anything but sleep and eat. I have found being employed helped a ton. It seems like the more you do, the more you want to do. It's a vicious cycle to get out of though.

Our schools are closed on Good Friday and the Monday after Easter. This has been on the freakin' school calendar all year. It's been on every weekly newsletter the school has sent out for the last two months. But there are a bunch of parents on our school Facebook page who are pissed off because they didn't know schools were closed on Monday. Seriously? Do you want them to send a singing telegram to your house? So many bitching about, "But I'm busy. I work." Yada, yada, yada. We're all, busy, Karen. And I work too. I knew about it all year.

It's strange to me how people get up and go to work everyday. All I want to do is sleep. My body hurts all over, especially my right leg and arm. I'm on antidepressants but they don't seem to work. I'm very antisocial and never want to go anywhere either. Dh and Dd work and work and are very social and know how to have fun. Me and ds are just sloth like. I hope going back to work will help me. I hate living like this.

In response to a confession. I feel for both of you, because my grandma was exactly like this! In my 20s, grandpa died. She wanted to return to her hometown across the country, and for me to go with her. I wasn't interested in moving there, so she said if I just helped her move, get settled, and stay a few months then she'd pay to fly me home, buy me a car and pay rent on an apartment for me for a year. (Not unusual; she showered all of us with gifts and money, had bought the car I was driving and 6 months rent at my apartment.) So I did, but when it came time for me to return home, she reneged. Said it was too dangerous for me to be 3000 miles away from her (my parents were deceased, but the rest of my fam was there!), that I'd get raped/murdered, etc. Ooookay - I'd just spent 4 years in the military around the world and have a black belt. So I got a job, she bought me a car, I saved my money - and 9 months later I quit and drove said car back across the country - and went NC for a couple years.

In response to a confession. I'm so upset right now. XMIL called DD20 again and is now pulling out all the stops- telling her flat out that if she goes across country, she's gonna be raped and murdered and it will take a long time to find her body because it's wilderness. Also, that her self-defense classes won't matter because they'll just tie her up. Also she shouldn't take her mountain bike because that will get stolen on the first day. I wish I were kidding, DD thought at first that her grandma was kidding.... she wasn't. I'm so pissed off I don't even know what to do. I told DD that if she wanted to she should block her grandma's number. I can't believe she's doing this.

I've posted on here before about my insane XMIL, and how my kids learned for themselves that she's nucking futs as they got older. I've also posted about my DD20 who is moving across the country to take a job for the summer in a place she really wants to go, doing something very cool that she really wants to do. Well this shit takes the cake, people. My XMIL just called her and offered her $3K to NOT go do this. Because if she moves away XMIL will have no control over her. She did the same thing to me when I moved away from there, when the kids were little and she was trying to control my life even though her son and I were divorced.

My DS is 6 months pregnant. She calls and texts me every day since she found out. I don't mind. It's her 1st baby and my 1st grandchild, but her cravings are affecting me! And her guy! We're gaining weight with her! Haha. I've decided to quit getting anything when I'm with her unless it's healthy.

Im so jealous of all my facebook friends having babies. I want another one, but i know my dh doesn't, and it wouldn't be a good idea for our current situation in life. I thought i was done at 2, but the more i see other people having them, the more i want another one. Oh well. Maybe i can find a hobby instead when both of these go to school.
