HELP - SS driving me insane! My fault? Am i crazy?

Brand new member if I don't use acronyms or misuse them, please excuse me. 

I married my husband about a year and a half ago. He has two children - a daughter who is 11 and a son who is 8. I also have two daughters, ages 19 and 12, living with us, so it's a big family. After years of being single, I basically added a small family to my own, and maybe I just didn't think it through before marrying. It's a lot!!!

I cant hear "poor SD" another time

ODS had his school play today and I wasnt able to go, so my mom went and recorded it for me. Afterwards, she called me to tell me how it went. After a little bit she asked if SD had her play today also. And then asked if DH went. And then a little later in the convo "oh well I sure hope BM went." And I kind of spazzed on her. I told her I just dont want to talk about SD, she causes me nothing but drama and stress and I just dont want to talk about her. My mom said she understood.

Well, she is supposed to go to court, we shall see if she actually shows up.

I got home from work yesterday to find a notice from the MedusaCounty Circuit Court.  Inside was our copy of the Summons issued to her to appear in court to show cause as to why she shouldn't be found in contempt of court for non-payment of support Smile

Keeping to the schedule, part 2

First of all I want to thank those who commented on my first post regarding SO and SD not keeping to the schedule. I can't tell you all how much your validating comments meant to me. When you are living in it day after day, and are consistently treated like you are the evil step mother, all common sense goes out the window and I start to think I am the unreasonable one.


Looks life we will have separate Christmas celebrations

Tonight I spoke with my DH about Christmas plans. Since 2011 we have always spent Christmas with his family and with us usually hosting. We are not hosting it this year And after last years disaster with adult skid there would be no way I would be hosting unless skid was not attending. Last year I told DH that I did not want to spend Christmas with skid again. 

I tricked DH into coughing up skid’s holiday visitation itinerary

DH and I had a heated text exchange, while I was at work today. Ultimately, I ended up clapping back at him in regards to how I have to lurk his parent’s public social media accounts, every effing year, just to find out when skid will be here for summer AND Christmas visitation. 

DH said “Skid will be here on the 17th.” 

I didn’t even bother inquiring how long he knew this information, because I always get a “I just found out myself, momjeans!”
