Since I married Dh every holiday, birthday & special occasion has been ruined for me. Being in a blended family is hard, but the drama is too much for me. I miss not having to worry if she's outside our house. I stay out of any issues between dh & his ex, but it affects my daily life. Halloween was ruined because dh had parenting time this year so his ex was upset & took it out by showing up at our house before we were to go trick or treating, causing a scene making dsd & my dd to cry. Dh gets dsd for Thanksgiving & Christmas Eve this year. She's already making threats to deny visitation &/or show up to ruin our day. She hates me, but never had a conversation with me. Ignored me when I tried to introduce myself, but stalked my facebook, puts crazy comments when I post things about family, our kids, vacations, etc or will leave screaming messages degrading me. I blocked her but she finds my dd, family & friends pages. I'd love to just spend the holidays on a cruise with no phones.
