Just catching up...
I haven’t posted in awhile…things have been going along as normal. Between my school, the Skids school & other simple life stuff, I’ve been pretty busy.
SD8 was a shit & threw major attitude at me at one of MY family gatherings in addition to making an ass out of herself at her birthday party...this all resulted in a HUGE battle between her & I...luckily, SO backed me & made it clear that she is NOT the queen bee in OUR home. SS9 has been a multi-colored fruit loop (I assign colors to varied degrees of unacceptable behavior, so multi-colored is NOT good)…although he’s getting less conduct marks at school because his teacher moved him to a table full of girls so that he no longer has an excuse for talking to the other boys. Basically, life is just…normal.
With Christmas coming up, I thought I’d share with you that SO (after 3 years) has FINALLY agreed to have two trees (YAY!!!) My tree is beautiful and traditional & all of BM Nasty’s family tradition crap has been moved to the Skids playroom. No more Spongebob, Dora, Spiderman or Scooby for THIS SM’s tree! Huge victory there.
The Skids BM, Nasty broke up with her FH a couple of months ago. She then showed a little interest in the Skids for about 3 weekends in a row…that interest has now waned to her usual amount of ZERO. She hasn’t called, skyped or texted the Skids in awhile now. Although she did send a pic of the new Disney princess, Sofia the First for SD8 to SO’s phone…even though the new princess is aimed at TODDLERS & she knows the Skids phone can get pics…ah well, what can ya do.
I got our cards out for Christmas. I send photo albums of the Skids to their maternal family (ggrands, grands & aunt) for Christmas every year & have the Skids write out Christmas cards for their BM & other relatives & put school pics in them. SO was irked by SD8’s message to Nasty which read “Dear mom, have a merry Christmas. When can we skype next? Please respond.” He thinks that Nasty will think that he put SD up to said note…I said “no, you told her to write whatever she wanted, & she did…let Nasty think what she will…does it really matter?” This is truly the first time EVER that SD has actually acted like she WANTED to talk/skype with Nasty. She still hasn’t asked to text or call though, so I guess she doesn’t want to talk to her THAT badly.
School is now out for two full weeks…SD seems to be pulling her head out of her butt while SS is seemingly in the process of simply losing his head somewhere…it’s going to be a GREAT two weeks!
Please keep my patience level in your thoughts.
