Shame on SD!

MissK03's picture

BM took SD on her monthly nail appointment today. BM asked how the chinchillas were... SD told her one died. BM then got "mad" because SD didn't tell her that day or something. Knowing how BM is when SD says "mad" I bet it was more like.. "whhhhyyyyyy didnnnntttttt you telllll meeeeee." In long drawn out words. Not... "I'm sorry your pet died." Etc. 

OT Another Raise for DH

Ispofacto's picture

He's gotten a number of big raises and promotions that Satan hasn't benefitted from since she lost custody of Paycheck/Killjoy in 2012. So sad, QQ Satan. She used to brag to GBM that she was 'getting raises whenever DH got a raise'. I had to resist the urge to ask him if he will be sending some of his extra earnings to her. But he hates to think about her and wouldn't appreciate the sarcasm.

I swear, I'll stop thinking about her at all eventually...I've got her raise...right here...


Ignores us IRL likes us on social media

My SD15 will not talk to DH or me and also refuses to visit us.

However I've just noticed that she likes everything I post on Instagram within hours of when I post.

I'm not super active on social media. I use Facebook as a sort of photo gallery for my friends and family that live in other states. I don't comment much and I don't post much other than for big events and it's just family photos. SD isn't on Facebook and that's no surprise since I don't know many people who are under 30 that are!

The battle of the dads

I was talking with my mother the other night, and I mentioned Little Idiot's (SD22.5) New Year's Eve car crash to her. Of course, she started asking questions... "is the car totaled?" (No I don't think so) "what is Little Idiot going to do?" (Well ex stepdad called the insurance company and he thinks they will bury the deductible...blah blah blah).... 

When would you tell SD?

We are currently under contract for a house! Our close date is February 10, but we aren't moving out of our apartment until the last weekend in February, going to be doing painting, etc. plus we are away for a 5 day trip between closing and moving. We are not planning on sending the 30 day notice of moving in the mail to BM until the day we get the house keys for the new home. Would you also wait to tell SD about the new house until the letter is going in the mail?

The self-centered,

Elea's picture

pushy, demanding, attention hog, step-diablas 26&24 are FINALLY out of my house. I forgot what energy, joy sucks they are. Yuck! 
If my marriage ever falls apart ... You all know what happened. Good Lord!!! 
Time to celebrate ... I am exhausted. I am not saying a word to DH about their overextended time here. I have no more f's to give. 

Perfect example of cleanliness comfort levels

I told DH that either he or SD26 would need to clean the guest house before she pisses off so this morning SD26 walks in the door and hands DH some towels. She says, "Here I washed these towels. I think they are yours."  She hands the towels to DH, DH replies "Those are towels for the dog."  SD cheerily relies "They are clean now!" DH says "thanks"

Off-Topic - My Sister, the BM

Cover1W's picture

So my sister was divorced, a GREAT thing since she was with an abuser, 2 years ago (divorce was final a year ago, but they split a year earlier). She got her own place and my niece finished up high school then, she's now 19.5.  And she's now got issues that we are all familiar with and I'm advising her as best I can, with as much honesty as I can from an outside perspective!
