I unintentionally disengaged and I think I like it
Let me begin by saying I do love my stepsons but they both have qualities about them, especially the older one, that makes it very hard for me to deal with them or even be around them sometimes. That being said... I just got a big promotion at work and have been working 9 hour days for the past two weeks. That means my DH has been picking up his kids from school (mine go to after school care and I get them from there) and handling all of their daily stuff when they get home. So for two whole weeks I've just had to pick up my biokids, take them to their extracurriculars and figure out their dinner, etc. at night. It has been like heaven. By the time we get home SS10 and SS8 have been fed, showered and are getting ready for bed so I have hardly had to see them at all. I get to say a quick goodnight and then I'm off the hook. Is it terrible that I am feeling so happy about this and I don't want to go back to dealing with them at all??
