I Didn't Call

Well ladies - I didn't call and I'm sure BF's daughter will hold it against me like everything else. Oh well. She did call her father and thank her for the flowers, but that was in the middle of her surprise party that her mom threw for her (flowers were delivered in the morning the party started at 6:00 p.m. and she called and left a message for her father at 7:10 p.m. during the party). I was glad for my boyfriend that she called and thanked him, although she waited for a long time before calling and I wonder who at the party convinced her to call...

Feeling alone...

It seems to me this is the only place I can feel sorry about myself. I have been here for 4 and half years now, but I still don't have any close friends. At first I thought I only need a friend that's close to my age.... Now I think I need someone not only that is close to my age but also in the same marital situation.

Speeding Ticket Cost was a Killer

Well, small towns can really be a killer. We just got back from "Mayor's Court" and were officially violated with the cost of a speeding ticket. My husband had a ticket for 50 in a 35 mph zone, first offense ever, ticket cost was $110 plus surcharges, total was $152, plus we had to get his DL copy ahead of time which was $30, which cost us $182.00. The court session was the most ineffecient, out of date, backwards thing you'd ever seen. My husband was the only one that left without getting probation, and we had to go to an ATM to get cash to get a money order to pay his ticket and fees.

Another Question

The biomom planned a surprise birthday party for my BF's daughter (Sweet 16). I think that the biomom should have invited my boyfriend even if her daughter and my boyfriend are at odds. If it was a surprise, she wouldn't have a say and that way my boyfriend could have made a decision whether to go or not - and I do believe he would have went regardless of how bad the relationship is right now - he is just trying to be a parent and make his daughter understand that she can no longer conduct herself the way that she does and needs to become responsible for her actions...

I so want to say I told you so - but I won't

My boyfriend finally took a stand and told his daughter that she was no longer welcome in our home until she changed her attitude and learned to stop disrespecting and being defiant and had her mother come and get all of her belongings, right down to the bed in her room. I felt it was a little extreme, but something had to change. Mommy dearest gladly came to the rescue and continued to make excuses for her...

It's been a couple of days since I've written down any lengthy thoughts. But I have viewed and written comments in others blogs, as I have virtually relived some events many times over in reading your sites. So, I empathize with many of you.

I'm coming at this from a bio-mom point of view..

The problems with daughter & Dad began when he got a girlfriend 1 1/2 yr ago now(moved in with thier Dad a few months after the kids new about her). Partly because "Dad" time now had to be shared with this other person..but more-so because HIS behaviour changed.

I'm coming at this from a bio-mom point of view..based on what the kids tell me and my own observations....

Initially ..the kids really really liked Dads' GF....son still does.. daughter has mixed feelings..(I think she likes her but is also jealous of her)

Messed Up

Well I just messed up! It was stupid and immature, but it felt good at the time. Now I just have to live with the consequences. The ex just drove my place of business while I was out getting the mail and on instinct my middle finger went up as she was driving by and while she was looking at me I happened to call her a female dog. Anybody else ever do something dumb and regret it later?

The 13 yr old is more mature than her DAD!

I really think the 13 yr old is more mature than her father!!!

The kids Dad...just finished blowing them off for his July 1st long party with his usual.. They are just as happy hanging out with their freinds, too... I've told him in the past..."You've taught them over the last 4 yrs that it's OK to blow-off visits for your social life...dont' come crying to me now to fix your screw-ups!!"
