The joys of summer (a little long)
I ended up not going to FL with SO because I did not want to be anywhere near Nasty. I didn’t want to see the Skids confusion (& subsequent heinous behavior) over seeing mommy & daddy spending time together, I didn’t want to have to bite my tongue all day because Nasty is full of crap (constant lies), I didn’t want to hear XSD16 blathering on about how PERFECT her mommy dearest is. I just wasn’t in the mood & don’t think I will ever be in a place where that type of a day would sound enticing to me.
SO & the Skids left this last Sunday & spent Monday afternoon & Tuesday as a big happy family with Nasty & XSD16. Nasty was *kind* enough to allow SO to take XSD16 on his own for a few hours so he was happy with that. Apparently, SO & Nasty were able to talk & communicate without her screaming at him, so he was happy about that too.
SO is now CONVINCED that Nasty has changed. She is human now because for TWO days, she was able to restrain herself & keep her stupidity & narcissism in check. He told me over the phone that he was hoping that this meant that things would change & get better between them. :sick: I had to hold back my laughter. I told SO that I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy that they were able to talk without her emasculating him & that I was ecstatic over the fact that as she’s changed, I would NEVER again have to hear about how he isn’t a man because he “takes her money” (CS) or how he’s a heartless b*st*ard for not caring about her life, money & happiness. I also told him that I expected that she would never again threaten to sue for custody over money or tax returns again. He said “If you’re trying to hide your sarcasm, it isn’t working!” to which I responded…”Oh, sorry babe, were you being serious???” Subject got changed & there you have it.
Nasty has the SKids until the 20th, on her own. She also has her BF’s daughter with her for every day of their time with her (she's babysitting for BF while he works)…she’s dated this guy for 4 months now & this is the first time she’s met this child (we’ll call her Lily)…she’s 10 years old & taking full advantage of the new “SM figure” trying to impress her dad. She apparently lives here in TX & visits her BD for 3 weeks per summer.
Since the lovely conversation with SO, I have found that Nasty has again let the Skids down regarding the following (all the while, SO maintains how much she’s changed)
Disney - she told them they’d go to Magic Kingdom (their favorite Disney park) & she’s chosen EPCOT instead because she took Lily & XSD16 to Magic Kingdom on the 4th of July…can’t go to the same place again, don’tcha know. Poor Lily!
Legoland – After promising SS9 Legoland, she told him that it was for babies & that she’d take him to the Lego store instead. When he mentioned the Lego store, she rolled her damn eyes at him.
Her time – She is so desperate to have Lily like her that she is letting her get away with bossing the Skids around & treating them like crap (playing the boss). Lily rudely told Nasty that she didn’t like SS & that he was weird (he is high functioning PDD & has ticks)…Nasty responded with…wait for it…”Yeah…he’s a weirdo!” IN FRONT OF SS!
SD8 texted me today asking me to Skype with her this evening…SS9 called me in tears because *they* (I'm guessing that it's SD8 & Lily) were being mean to him & his own mother did nothing to stop it. I got SD on the phone & told her she's not allowed to be ugly to her brother & she said "I told Lily to stop & I told on her too...mommy said that Lily is a visitor..." Yes, that's it. Apparently, Lily can be a bully to SS & SD because she's a VISITOR...what are SD & SS? Their visit is shorter than Lilys!
Yes…the Skids are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO lucky that their BM has changed, aren’t they?
Oh the joys!
