Update: cancelled SD20 cell phone line

Shieldmaiden's picture

Hi,

 Just an update to my prior post. I made a special trip to the cell phone store this weekend to cancel our family plan and get a 2 line account so we could save some money. SD20 was informed 30 days ago by DH that this would be happening, and that she needed to get her own cell account. So far, she has not requested a transfer code to do this and is still on our plan.

SD's blame DH for everything

Its exhausting listening to DH talk to SD 18 and SD 20 on the phone every day. Here's the kind of abuse he gets, but thank goodness he stands up for himself. Not sure why he keeps calling, though. 

DH calls SD18:

DH: "Hey, your mom (BM) texted me asking me to check on you. She says you are really stressed out. Are you ok?"

SD: "*Sigh! WHY are you calling me? Your time to call me is not until  X o'clock. Why can't you stop bothering me? What do you WANT?! I never get any free time and you are always bothering me!"

SD's ambushing DH at lunch over college plans

Dh wanted to meet in person with SD18, who he has not seen for 6 months. DH calls SD every night to ask about her day, etc, and lately, SD has been avoiding his calls. We found out why when we realized she knew her mom was planning to send attorney paperwork to DH regarding her college funding, without ever asking him about it once.

OT: Auto accident insurance scam artist

So far the 3 SD's are out of my house and driving their mom crazy instead of me. Yay!  One of them managed to get caught on Maui when it was on fire. She made sure to take a selfie with the "strange red glow in the sky." LOL. Later she found out it was a forest fire and lucky for her, was able to get home with all her luggage.

Karma rears its head for a rude mediation lawyer

Sorry I have been absent here lately. With SD's out of the house, its been relatively calm.

I wanted to share a great karma experience that my DH had recently. He works in HVAC heating and cooling and went out on a customer call. A man answered the door and looked VERY familiar to DH.

The pride of owning a home

I just have to mention here that I find it very funny that these stepkids assume that all good things in their lives either

a. rain down from heaven 

b. are the work of Mommy and Daddee dearest

c. are somehow the result of them getting rewarded by the universe for doing absolutely nothing.

 

When in actuality, stepmoms often work very hard behind the scenes to make sure they are provided for, have everything they need, wear the right shoes, pack the right snacks, etc etc.

DH looking at old videos of stepkids and I burst out crying.

Last night my DH was lying in bed beside me, and I hear him watching this old video he took on his phone, of when the stepdaughters were school age 7 and 9 years old, I think. I've seen the video before, but I hate it because I sound so tired and annoyed in it. The kids are filling up the play pool in the back yard with the hose, and laughing and giggling, and they yell at me "Can you turn off the hose?! " They didn't have shoes on and said there were rocks on the concrete pathway that would hurt their feet, so they couldn't do it.

SD is giving up on life

Shieldmaiden's picture

So, my SD19 has been living at her BMs house and not visiting us since the Thanksgiving yelling match. She still doesn't have a drivers license or a job. Last night she opened up a bit to DH, which is rare. She demanded to be taken off speaker phone becuase she didn't want me to hear. He took her off speaker, but DH keeps his phone volume up so loud I can hear the other person across the room. LOL. Besides, he was going to tell me anyway, because I am his wife. DuH.
