Used to be Quite Active on this Site
Step parenting and a second marriage continue to be challenging! And now, seven years after I was active on this site my own kids are teenagers, same as my husband's were when we got together. My husband's daughter, whom I named Princess on this blogs all those years ago is now almost 28. Married, two kids of her own, financially independent from us, not the state, but from us thank god. My step son will be 26 this year and things are as bad with him as ever. He asked a year and a half ago to move back in with us to "save" up money to buy a house. He promptly quit his job and has been sitting on his ass ever since. He goes out to buy fast food and alcohol. He's caused more fights, division and distance between my spouse and I inthe last year and a half than almost anything since 2015. I have been asking, demanding, pleading and raging at my spouse to force him to get a goddamn simple full time job.
Pee, as I always referred to him, does nothing but sit on his ass, get drunk, smoke cigarettes and play with his guns (I hate his guns, they scare the shit out of me and what he might do with them). I forced a talk with them last Sunday giving a two week ultimatum to get a full time out of the house job in the next two weeks or leave.
So far no action on his part. He's an angry, entitled person so everyday I worry about getting shot. My husband calls his guns a hobby. I see him as an everyday threat.
Just venting, so glad steptalk is still here. And I recognize a few old names, hey, Rags!
