My knee hurts and no one cares!!!
Night two of our 2nd week with sd11 & 6 and it's been hell from the moment I picked them up. DH was working so I met bm and sd11 was in one of her moods because she wanted to go to an event with her grandmother 3 days from now. She didn't want to get in the car, and was screaming and crying and acting crazy!!! bm and I spent 1/2 hour trying to get her in the car. Finally, I decided I'm gonna let her (bm) handle this after all it is her daughter. 1/2 hour later we were still not any closer to sd being in the car. Then their cousin asked if she could come too, I said sure and magically I am driving home with not 2 but 3 kids!!! Ugh!!! Thus is just the first hour, this week is going to be hell and wouldn't you know it, it has!!! During the day, not a problem at all once the witching hour happens, like dinner and showers and bedtime all he'll break loose and they are calling their mother -- who does nothing because everyone is so lazy they don't want to drive 20 miles to pick them up, so the kids just feel like ok we will tough it out. The problem is this, the biom extended family gets these skids all worked up about "other events" that when they are here they are dying to be there. They feel like they are always missing something, other a bm vacation, a bio grandmom event, or something. It's getting old and getting harder to deal with. Bm and family are always interfering with our time! Meanwhile my knee is killing me from running up and down the stairs at least 100 times today and 75 times yesterday. No one seems to cares that I can barely walk and my hip hurts, my ankle hurts and my knee hurts.
