Invited MIL to two of my kid's functions this weekend. Never heard back. Haven't heard back if she is coming to DS's birthday party either. Oh she's alive and well-commenting all over her DD's Facebook about my niece-so it's not like she's home alone injured or something. I feel I have done my duty-invited to all 3 in writing. No response? Not my problem, I am not contacting her again.

XH says he's going to court to take our school aged child away from me because my BF recently laid his hands on me. I left my BF when he did it, but xH doesn't care. I don't see him being able to get full custody over this, even though I'm terrified he might win. The email he sent me reminded me of why I left him (he always liked to kick me while I was down). He said "Hey, I know you're going through a lot right now, but you can either give me our child, or you can hurt our child by forcing me to take you to court." I told him to stop contacting me. I have had full custody for 2yrs because he chose to go overseas. In 2 years we skyped a hand full of times, and I had to be the one to beg him to do it, he was too busy getting in other girls pants to even ask about our child.

It's all good on my end. Post away, that's what it's here for. Not that it matters what I say of course. I love reading people's thoughts and fears and good stuff.

The views I express here are usually things that I don't speak about IRL, especially not to my kids. They are visceral responses that i can't just let fly IRL. I don't even necessarily feel the same way all the time. I had nothing to do with the GoT dispute. What's funny is, it oddly affected me when I read it combined with the airline post. All this talk of "Well, that's just what men did at that time......totally normal. Get over it" (not a direct quote, of course) to "How dare people think men are like this!" There was a line in the airline post about gender roles being shitty. They are. As I said, I express my darkest fears and cynicism here anonymously, rather than projecting them onto the people around me, but I will start posting under my screen name more, so people can scroll past if they'd like to. I'm sure my post get tiring to a lot of people, which I understand.

I saw another Mom basically "hiding" during a game at the field the other day. So glad that someone else can't "take the heat" all the time either. It was raining and so another parent couldn't see her under her umbrella and was making comments about her player. I tried to interject "he's a great kid" because I knew she was in front of us. I have been there. You have to be made of stone to not feel it. She got up and went and hid by concessions on the other side of the building. Been there! Hugs!

I have recently been diagnosed with another skin condition and as usual my mother has started her 'elimination diet/gluten free/douse yourself in coconut oil and light a match' badgering. She doesn't say or suggest all of these things to be helpful. She does it so when she finds out you aren't a vegan like she insisted in the first place she can say 'oh well you didn't listen so too bad for you.' She is the LEAST supportive person I have ever met. No scratch that, my DH is exactly like her.

My great-grandparents are a state away from us. Its a 5 hour drive and due to recent medical issues, I cannot drive and my husband can't drive that far without getting really tired. It sucks because I love my grandparents but I cannot risk putting us in an accident. My family is calling me selfish for this but when I asked if it was possible for them to split the driving with my husband, they can't. I feel so guilty but also angry and resentful that they don't understand the issue. A part of me wants to tell my husband to just go through but that would be unfair to him and could put us at risk
