Introduction...this will be long...prepare yourself for the ride!
This is my introduction. I came across this site while at work (I'm sure my coworker has an account here, thats why the site was on the frequently visited box on Google).
My name is Cilya, and I am divorced and recently remarried. I have two biological children, and five step children. I am not very savvy with abbreviations, so please bear with me.
My current husband and I first met in Jr High over 20 years ago. We knew each other, but weren't friends with each other. Fast forward to the era of Facebook, and we became friends online, mainly due to vaguely remembering each other and the numerous mutual friends we shared. Fast forward another few years and we both were divorced and living back in our hometown area. Fast forward one more time to a couple more years and we connected in person, as friends.
So, back to current. We've been together nearing 3 years, married for 4 months. His children are great! My daughter hates him, but I figure the reason is that he isn't her Dad, he tells her what to do when she is in our home, and she's still mad that her father and I divorced. I'm sure she will eventually come around. She graduated high school this year and moved to her fathers home in another state in order to go to school and spend time with him. (She had a rocky relationship with him, due to his military career)
Currently, my 11 year old ASD son lives with us as well as his 17 year old son. His four daughters (age 10, 12, 13, 15) live with their mother.
To put things nicely, she's got more issues than all of the encyclopedias combined. You name it, she has it. She is conniving, manipulative, "sickly", lazy, whiny, and above all, absolutely crazy....and for some reason the judge felt that the children needed to reside with her.
Work calls, I'll continue later.
