Skid weekend recap.
BM told DH to get them at 8:00 Friday (instead of 5:00) because SD had a bday party to go to. She is court ordered to drop them off, but never does.
He went at 8:00 and got them.
Weekend was good, busy, tiring... the usual. DH gets a call Sunday at 6:00, it is BM losing her shit because skids aren't home. Drop off is normally 5:00 but DH was going to drop them off for 8:00 (showered and ready for bed) because he lost out on 3 hours Friday. This is how the court order works and has always worked.
She starts on her tirade which quickly turns into money. She tells him he should be "thankful" because she pays cable and electric (??????? :? ) and she does "everything" including dropping SD off at gymnastics once per week. He reminded her he would gladly spend more time with the skids but she fought for EOW visitation. He would have no issue taking her to gymnastics if BM had a waitressing shift or some other pressing situation to attend to.
We are having trouble comprehending how she gets $800 month in child support plus half of activities, has her waitressing and live in boyfriend ... yet still is having meltdowns. It seems she thinks she is entitled to *alimony* but forgets they were not married.
It really sickens me how this woman thinks she has it so hard. My closest friend is a single mom who pays for it all, keeps her daughter in year round sports (not just one lousy hour of gymnastics per week for 6 weeks - it took BM TWO YEARS to even sign her up for that) and my friend works 40+ hours. BM HAS NO IDEA.
Thanks for letting me get that out - I was ready to explode at her yesterday. Thankfully, I kept my zen.
