SCHOOL CLOTHES AND SUPPLIES... ARGGG!!!!!
So.. we had the skids this weekend. A couple we know stopped by, and started chatting w/the skids yesterday. They asked if the skids were all set for school w/their supplies and clothes.. (we never thought of asking.. not sure why!?!) and sd9 says, no.. We have to wait til everything goes on sale. The only things on sale right now are tank tops.
Ok.. our friends looked horrified, I was embarassed.. Not sure dh heard it. So SD9 goes on... about saving money and how much things costs... yadda yadda yadda..
I am not sure if Bm expected us to go get them things for school in light of this revelation on Labor Day, or what.. but I am done giving her extra. She gets $850/mth for two kids.. Two years ago, we purchased $500 of school clothes, backpacks and supplies for the skids (since she had not) on TOP of the CS... She never said thank you. The following year, we would have done the same, but then she purposefully treated me as if I didnt exist.. so I didnt suggest to DH that we go buy them stuff. This year I was VERBALLY told that I dont exist, dont matter and am NOTHING.. so OF COURSE I didnt suggest helping her out. I am done helping out someone that is continually rude and unappreciative.
Before I get hollared at, I do know the skids are the ones that suffer, but my inlaws purchased the skids 2 outfits each for school over the summer, bm has a dh, bm chooses to NOT work.
