Well, my boyfriend's daughter called Sunday afternoon and told her father about a counseling appointment for Monday at 6:30 p.m. (she called the week before with less than 15 minutes notice and my boyfriend wasn't able to go). He agreed to go to counseling with her (her and her biomom have been going for a few visits - at our suggestion the last time the daughter was out of control and manipulating everyone in her path). We then were told Monday afternoon that the daughter was coming to our house after school and spending the night.

Interfered with DH's phone call with the kids again last night.
DH is only allowed to call them within a 2-3 hour window each week. One hour on Tuesday and one hour on Thursday, between 5:15pm and 6:15 pm. Alternate weeks he can also call on Monday.
Anyway, we haven't seen the kids in 5 weeks as they have been on holiday, and phone contact has been patchy. (Cell phone out of range, not charged etc etc.)
Well, its been a rough start and a hard road so far. I met a wonderful man who swept me off my feet. He failed to mentioned he had a psycho ex wife. Or current wife when I met him. He has two children with her. We moved in together and a few weeks in I get a call from her saying she wanted to speak to him and that she was "his wife". Although she had no idea I was living there. Turns out they were not legally divorced. I found out when she filed for divorce. She wouldnt let him see the kids for about 5 mths then the court ordered him visitations every other weekend.
Were you all ever been in this situation when you see the exwife/biomom at times and you just got nothing to say to her! My daughter and stepson had a swim class together one summer and biomom would come when we don't have him to the classes and she and I would just sit there next to each other and have no conversation really, I just can't seem to talk to her or don't care to. I don't know why, I'm pretty much outgoing kinda person and even with strangers I can stir up something to say. One day she was talking about buying this brand name shirt for her son...
Well, it looks as if things are slowly starting to turn around and perhaps I'll get a little respite. Thankfully. The tax return made it to my old bank account, I just got it reopened just in the nick of time. The puppy is still not sleeping, don't know what's up with that. My husband is in a terrible mood....very nasty. I think he would kick the dog if he thought I wasn't looking. I declined having him take the dog out a 2nd time this morning. He had already stepped on the dog's back foot from not watching what he was doing and I didn't want any more vet bills.
Well, I am so glad that I've gotten away from those residential issues where the biomom is going to move into the neighborhood. I so remember that uncomfortable feeling where that wretch just kept showing up everywhere. It was truly nauseating.
BIOMOM is really on my nerves lately. she is doing her very best to ignore me and even to try to get sdaughter to be around just me less.
My mother in law just called me and biomom had called HER about the fact that she wasn't going to be able to pick stepdaughter up from daycare and that she wouldn't be able to take her to softball game. Why wouldn't she call stepdaughter's father, or me? Seems like she'd call one of us before her EX mother in law.
Well, just when I thought I was safe from my SS's mommy being our next door neighbor... the house she was going to rent a few miles away fell through. Now she's looking in our subdivision again! AAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH! I hate how she tries to make it sound like it's so much about how much her older son from her first marriage would enjoy living there because a few of his friends live in our subdivision. It is a large neighborhood, but it's OURS and she doesn't need to be there!
Well, I have been busy unraveling the banking mess I've been trying to get straightened out for a couple of weeks. Finally getting it finished up with apologies from both banks after I have completely pulled my hair out. Now I know why people used to just hid their money under the mattress. Sometimes you need some of the services from a larger bank but you also need the qualities of a small town bank to take care of your business.
Well, yesterday was interesting. It was 8:00 time for biomom to return stepdaughter after their dinner (we sort of have the reverse of usual custody; sd with us most of the time). Anyway, when biomom got there and realized that she was leaving sd with me only (dad was working) she said that she wasn't going to leave sd with just me anymore - that if she had her and it was time to return her and dad wasn't home; she'd just keep her!
