Off to a crappy start!
Skids ruin literally everything. DH and I had a glorious skid-free week and wknd. DH got me a MD card and wrote some really sweet things in it, plus a gift card, and I actually got my first-ever Mother's Day text from SS15 yesterday, which was nice. Not a peep from SD12, yesterday or today. She was too busy posting selfies of her and Crazy, proclaiming her an "amazing mom", and "the best mom ever", and "I couldn't ask for a better mom". My mouth actually dropped open because HOW. Make it make sense!!! SD was just crying last Sat. because Crazy forgot everything SD told her about some issues she was going through (tween angst I'm sure, but still), so I was hugging her to console her. SD is not a dumb kid, so her not saying anything to me after seeing my Mother's Day card on the counter is because she doesn't want to. It makes me not want to do sh*t for her.
Anyway, DH looked at Skids grades online tonight- SD had gotten all D's and F's on her latest tests/assignments, and SS15 had multiple zero's. DH takes grades pretty seriously (you have to try) and these kids know that. DH reamed them out. He has previously told SS (and me, to "hold him accountable" *eyeroll*) that next time SS gets a zero for a missed assignment he's taking SS's computer cords to work with him. Tonight I hear DH tell SS he better "do better, understand"? *another eyeroll*, then DH leaves for work. Do you think DH took SS's cords with him? No, he did not, because DH WILL NOT PUNISH SS. It's ridiculous. He didn't even tell me about the missing assignments, probably because he knew I was supposed to "hold him accountable". So DH was all pissed off about skids and left for work cranky.
SD said goodnight and went to bed without hugging me like she does every night. And I just sat there like, WHY do people have kids?? Things were quiet lovely around here, and then skids arrived and that all went downhill real fast.
Edit to add: Now SS15 is home sick today. He text DH at 11:30pm at work (I was home and awake, he has been told to text me also), and he has a slight sore throat and his ear hurts "a little". DH told him to stay home. Which, fine, maybe that's the right thing to do, but SS also stayed home 2 weeks ago at BM's 1 day for reasons we still don't know. These "1 day illnesses" are pretty suspect if you ask me. And I work from home, so I just don't want a kid in the house right now! Crazy kept SD home sick all last week except Friday, even though she was feeling fine on Thursday.
This morning when I saw DH It was all I could do to talk to him or listen to anything about skids. I honestly do not care right now.
