Yes, I am here for Help!!
Good morning fellow Step Monsters!
Thank you so much for the replies and support and WTH responses... I knew it was messed up but on reading your takes on just the tip of this iceberg... I see I am about to go down!
Oh yes I have a lot to learn from you amazing Mothers I am so happy I found this forum.
On the notion of didn't I know I was signed up for this?
When my DH and I got together he was much a pariah to his family as with he religious part I eluded to... he was kicked out". So, I didn't think we would see all the kids much at all... the two young ones were SD11 and SD14 at the time so we eventually saw them more often and then a year later the 14 year old moved in. This was great at first because we were re connecting DH with his kids... fast forward... we did such a bang up job... or BM was now off the hook... and more kids came in and out of our house.
The 14 year old is now 19 and has moved in with her mom. (visits up on every other weekend or so).
These kids are very family oriented due to their upbringing but also to the coddling they received.
Fast forward... There are two adults in the house (other than DH and me).
SD25 is getting married in June has a sep. suite in our house and pays rent. All good.
SS27... is going to be on real notice this time after this weekend.
DH is embarrassed that his kids are this way and sees the real dent it puts in his awesome relationship with me in turmoil.( I can get into that more later... ex:not in the "mood")
Launch date in the works for real.
Wait until you hear about why we are waiting until next week... (well, why it lasted this long is a question in itself)
wait for it...
We are going to an engagement party for SD25 at her aunts house (BM's sister) with 65 people there. All of which are in the religion, and 90% are on BM's side of the family. So.. the new "hot young wife" is walking into the lions den. No matter how nice they will appear to be to me and welcoming and kind... they want to pounce, see me get drunk, fall over, look bad, fail... I am going there!???https://cdn-1.ststatic.com/images/smileys/barf.gif
Yup... this Saturday. (you best believe I will tell you all about it.
Got go... back in an hour or so..
Thanks for the support.
PS... I think I am learning all the abbreviations... but what does OP mean?
