The return of the BM drama
I called it. BM is on the warpath trying to cause drama again, likely because of things going south with her boyfriend/fiance/whatever he is now. In very covert ways like usual, so she can claim innocence, but since we've seen this pattern over and over we know what shes doing.
She ignored FILs bizarre Christmas message to her on Facebook for 3 weeks. Started messaging him a bunch in response yesterday - over 3 weeks later. Has been bringing SD to school late nearly every day, hoping DH will freak out when he gets notifications about it. Messaged yesterday and the day before asking for more and more days with SD. Admittedly a new tactic, but it seemed like she was hoping for a fight with it, asking to have her basically all of August (fine by me) and then adding a couple more days, along with a couple other times during the school year. Then going back and forth between acting agreeable about the details of the schedule change and being demanding. Usually shes fought having her even an extra half hour. I'm sure she was assuming we would say no to at least some of it and be able to argue.
Also, bringing SD late to school again nearly every day shes had her since Christmas break. That only happens when shes single. Ugh, this is just the beginning. I hope she finds a new guy soon before it's back to square one with her.
