I did not sign up for this did I?
Hello gang... I have spent the last hour reading your posts and feeling like I have a new family in you all... the suffering doesn't need to be alone or in silence anymore. Thank you all for that.
To be honest I am at such a state with these skids and BM that I am almost afraid to be specific due to being found out for venting about their retched-ness. Sigh... I will try not to get found out...
I have been a SM for 6 years SS27, SD25, SD19, and SD16... I have two of my own but they are awesome (and sometimes sh*ty but they are mine so nothing I can't handle).
The Skids are in my everyday life way more than I ever bargained for... and at this point I am honestly feeling like being unmarried single mom would be way more fun and easy than all the crazy crap that comes with loving and being with my DH.
In my Skids old lives they were spoiled rotten, entitled, Prince and Princess'. The divorce messed them up thanks to BM openly blaming DH for everything and implicating me (there was absolutely no overlap what so ever but we all seem to need to blame someone).
SD19 lived with us for 4 years and it was exhausting due to BM mostly giving up on her and me picking up all the slack like a rockstar! She has a LD that isn't obvious so everyday interactions tend to be fruitless and any instruction is misinterpreted and not followed.
SD16 is the most spoiled and the biggest liar in history and BM thinks she is an angel. Last summer proved us right but alas BM is still desperate to do anything to make SD16 happy. We are mean jerks.
SS27 has been living with us for over a year and a half (I thought we would never see him... certainly not have him living with us).
and SD25 is renting our basement suite and is lovely but hardcore religious... and that is a whole other story.
I will post some examples... I need to get SS27 dinner on the table!! yeesh!
(I hate how uncomfortable I feel in my own home).
