I honestly don't think I could hate Step life more than I do right now. How is it getting worse instead of better??? Oh that's right, because we have 2 teens and teens absolutely suck.
When SD13 got in trouble last Monday, she said the magical words that now have DH coddling her and refusing to tell her no. She told DH "I know you don't love me". *eyeroll*. Her reasons are "he never goes up to her bedroom to talk to her, and never asks her to play board games, she always has to ask him". I told her that she is 13- when we were her age we were in our rooms and parents didn't come to sit and talk and ask to play games. I mean for real. We had our own lives! This is all Crazy talking anyway, telling SD DH is a terrible parent because he doesn't do these things.
Skids come today (notice how they are not even here yet?) and sh*t has already hit the fan. It's simply exhausting- every Monday they come, it's some new fresh hell.
I feel like I could write a blog every day with all the crap going on. This past week:
Blog hog this week, sorry.
Now that skids are with us, a few developments:
I will try to keep this as brief as possible but there's a lot to unpack here. I can't even make this stuff up.
On Friday, DH, SD13 and I went to get a tree. We got home, DH brought all the totes of Christmas decorations up from the basement, I got out the lights and said I planned to put up lights outside first since it was a rare nice day (but about to get dark). Meanwhile, the dishes in the dishwasher are clean and need to be put away, and dirty dishes are piling up in the sink- this is skids chore. DH and I have gone rounds about this. He just will almost never make them do them. And HE doesn't do them, which means if no one else does them, I'M the one doing them.
Ok at risk of being a blog hog- quick update.
We didn't even have skids this week and I am still fired up and had to hold myself back from texting SS16 a piece of my mind.
