I must have too much time in my hands or something because I am stressing over something that could happen months from now. Must be ptsd from step hell.
This isn't the first time I have had this particular problem and probably won't be the last. But I'm so sick of the same issue over and over.
This year I was able to get out of going with DH and YSS to do clothes shopping for school. I was so happy. And then yesterday I find out we have to take YSS back to the store to exchange a few things because they didn't try anything in when shopping the first time. And DH resized he bought YSS all bottoms and only one shirt. Insert eye roll.
I think about that a lot. Maybe I am selfish for not wanting to deal with my horrible stepkids. Maybe I am selfish for starting to resent my DH for feeling like I am stuck here. My BS is launched...a did my job and raised him to be a good human. Now I am ready to begin pre-retirement. But I can't because DH wants to wait until YSS has graduated.
Maybe I am selfish for not wanting to spend money on his kids and would rather fix my hiuse up so i can sell it. Maybe I am selfish for hating it when my skid is here.
Quick background....married to DH 9 years. He has three sons. OSS and MSS have been PASd for at least 3-4 years by BM. So far YSS14 has not been PASd. From day one OSs and MSS dislikes me and my BS. After a few years of trying to be understanding and make an effort, I stopped trying and disengaged.
Wow it's been a crazy week so just now getting to update on graduation.
DH went to MSSs graduation and I stayed home. The ceremony was outside and they all had to wait as a group before being escorted to their area to sit. The text BM sent DH about grad said masks were required. Guess who shows up without any masks....BM, her SO and YSS. Yup...DH and BMs elderly parents had to stand in the hot sun waiting for BM SO and YSS to get masks. Omg.
DH gets a text last night from BM with details on MSS s graduation this weekend and asking if we are going. Apparently there are strict rules for people going and she wanted us to know. Wear mask, social distancing etc. Except each graduate is allowed a certain number of guests and they ALL have to sit together. This makes Zero sense and who is going to enforce it but whatever.
Last year DH and I bought a small cabin not far from his work. DH works weekends so he is able to come to the cabin after work and enjoy himself. It's a small one bedroom place but we love it. We have great neighbors and friends all close by.
I work from home and have for several years, which sucks when you have step he'll because everyone expects you to babysit the stepshits while you work. But back to the topic...
I have had the same female boss the entire 8 years with my company. She is around my age and we have gotten to know each other well. She is newly divorced and likes to share her dating life details with me...sometimes way more info then I want.
I like her as a person and enjoy working with her but sometimes tolerate her non work related chats just to keep the peace since she is my boss.
I kind of feel bad for him. He won't see any of his kids on Fathers Day. BM made is a point to schedule her vacation on Fathers Day so YSS will be gone. He has no relationship with the older two so there will no well wishes from them. And my BS, who is the only one who sends him a message and gift, lives out of state.
I hate this for DH but sometimes wonder if he had stood up for himself more earlier on if things would have been different. Who knows....just hoping DH manages to have a good day despite his spawn.
I think I have posted a few times about YSS wanting to stick around our house longer and longer each week. Well in the last 10 days, we had him 7 and BM had him 2. He was supposed to go to BMs yesterday but he had a friend pick him up and he stayed all night with a friend. My gut is telling me that YSS May end up living with us soon. I can see the writing on the wall. YSS apparently hates going home to BMs. I don't know if it is because of OSS and MSS or because he gets ignored...:or maybe he hates hearing BM and SO trash DH.
