Dad's estate 3/4 of the way done

Hey we had a little progress on the Alaska Properties of my Dad's estate.  My PR sister used a personal representatives deed  to put 1 of 4 properties in her name, #2 in my name, #3 in our little sisters name!  This is great news!  it is finally recorded and no one can take the daughters Alaska properties.

STalk trend?

Iamwoman's picture

Within the past year or so, it seems as if STalk went from being mostly populated by SMS who have decent spouses but the spouse might be a Disney parent, or might kowtow to BM a bit... to a place where we are now mostly populated by SMs in ABUSIVE marriages or relationships!

Is this a generational thing? Are younger adults simply more abusive to each other? Or are more people not recognizing signs of abuse and simply think it's step-life?


Toxic Family splitting us up

afy65's picture

At a loss and so very sad and lonely. I have been with my GF (partner) for three years. We get on just great but her family (mother and 2 daughters – ages 23 and 12) have just gone out of their way to make things as awkward for us as possible for us. The youngest SD’s behaviour has just been appalling, dangerous! and at times just plain weird.

Someone is pushing the One Big Happy Family narrative...

and I suspect it’s my MIL.

Skid has been gone a good 10 days and I’ve noticed our young bios have been mentioning BM’s toddler with her current husband in conversation, as if they know him. 

Someone’s pushing this “Skid’s half-brother is faaaaaaamily” narrative, post skid’s visit. And given ALL the drama and BS behavior from BM, past and present, why is this okay? 

I mean, I know it’s okay to MIL, but why in the world should this be okay with me?

I guess I’m looking for ideas how to tackle this, because it has my nerves frazzled.

I am exhausted.

Hi everybody,

this is my very first post so I would like to describe my situation...hoping to find a place to vent and people that can understand me.

I am a 21 years old woman married to a 24 years old man who has a 2 years old son with his previous wife, and he has full custody of the child, even though the child still sees the mom from time to time. The child is staying in our house for a month and then go to his mom for a while.Problem is, I have to take care of him during the day because my husband works and cannot afford a daycare.


I don’t want to do this today.

This is just absolute emotional vomit. 

I'm tired. I have a 15 hour day tomorrow. After a long day today and coming home spending an hour cleaning up after the boys. Then cooking dinner. Getting the kid to bed. Who WONT GO TO SLEEP. And SO won't be home until midnight. 

I'm still recovering from a major shoulder surgery, the winter weather is killing me. I don't want to be responsible for a child. I want to take a sleeping pill and go to bed. 

We should go on trip

grace8205's picture

That's the text that skid25 sent to DH. 

Skid25 - We should go on a trip.

DH - where to?

Skid25 - London

DH - That would be cool, but very expensive.

Skid25 - Or instead we can go to Nashville, Los Angeles, New York 

Skid25- not all of those but one of those. 

At that  point DH changed the subject. They just start to speak again after Skid25 called DH the worse things ever and disowned as a father. Even gave DH "throwing money at him" over the years. Now Skid25 is trying to get a vacation out of DH. Well it's not happening.
