The Storm

Well, my boyfriend got a call Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. from his daughter alerting him to the fact that she was having surgery Friday morning at 7:30 a.m. for her adenoids. This was the first we had heard from her in three months, not to mention that it would have been nice for biomom to let her father know earlier. So, Friday morning he went to the hospital to be with his daughter, where he should be.

5 Month Old Puppy Slowly on the Mend

Hi All,
Just an update on my little puppy, Bullet-the baby Greyhound-my husband drove us to Louisville, GA and we got his remaining two (2) staples that the surgeon forgot to remove taken out this evening. Our vet said we are doing a good job with Bullet but he shouldn't be walking much on the leg or foot which means we will be carrying him around for another month or so. He was just weighed today and is now up to 35 lbs and is rapidly gaining weight.

Missed Opportunities

Well, I have read many of your individual blogs about things that have happened that I have been through but some of you are now approaching issues that I must say I hadn't considered such as the coed sleepover stuff and such. I nor my husband go for that sort of thing, nor for any of the drinking under age either. There will be plenty of time for that later in life. I can recall those moments when my stepdaughter thought I was the greatest thing since sliced bread and these days she has no use for me or her father. The comments and her behavior have shattered both of us.

The Suitcase Game

Well, I don't know if anyone feels like they are playing the new suitcase money game, Deal or No Deal, but that is kind of what I feel like I have been doing lately. Kind of always trying to pick the lesser of two evils, at least it seems that way. I am calling the dr's office tomorrow for an appointment for when they are in town (2 days a week) and will go from there. I have absolutely no idea what is going on but I am already pretty tired of this strange feeling and then my ankle collapsing and hitting my head.

Another Goose Egg

Well, it looks like I am repeating this pattern and fell again today. This time in the garage coming up the stairs into the house. I couldn't get the house alarm turned off on time either, so the alarm company called as well and I explained what happened. My ankle collapsed underneath me, and what few things I had in my hand fell down the steps, my head hit the wall, and my knee and ankles hit the brick steps. I saw birdies again. I had this queer feeling before it started to happen but couldn't control it and have such a headache with another goose egg.

I have been married for about 1.5 years to a man with a daugther from a previous marriage. She lives with her mother and visits us on designated breaks. Her mother is a very "hands off" parent who would rather ignore her daughter than raise her. When I married this man, I informed him that I, by choice, did not date men with children because I drama created from the dynamics of the parental bermuda triangle. He told me that he was civil with the mother and promised no drama. What a crock. That is all it has been.

maybe I finally get it

Well, a few days have gone by since my last post. I was glad to see that the site was down and it wasn't a problem with my computer. .) Yesterday was my birthday and anniversary but we didn't really do anything special. And today my husband snapped my head off again. Just like any other day. So what's the point. And then I found the alternate blog site my step daughter was using only to find out that her mom's BF had been calling her a bitch, and her mom agreed, but that was okay. And they still got the support money. So, I guess whatever floats you boat.

Marking Time

Well, I have been marking time. It's just a few days away from my birthday and anniversary which are purposefully, both on the same day, the 3rd, so my husband, can't screw them up. Smile I was reading the comments in the posts about wills and stepchildren, and interests, and such. First, I will just say, you need to do whatever fits your own comfort zone.
