Hello everyone! (Or should I say "both of you"--heehee) (Hey, two readers are better than none!)

Carly has been sick again today. I say again because she missed school on Friday of last week too. Last week she had a bad stomach ache off and on for several days. Friday morning was particularly bad, so I let her stay home to rest. It has been better the past couple of days, but this morning she woke up feeling nauseous (which is different) and has had diarrhea. She looks pale. There is definitely a stomach bug going around, so I didn't take her to the dr. yet. She just stayed home and rested. If she feels okay in a few hours, we need to get her Halloween costume. (Yes, we have waited until the last minute--mostly due to crazy schedules)

If she doesn't feel better, I don't know what we'll do. Richard and I are supposed to go to the Mavericks game tomorrow night (we got invited to a suite!) so that leaves us no time at all. Ugh.

SS 1 still won't talk (nicely) to us. I had a text exchange with him...just trying to figure out what is going on in his head. He said some incredibly mean things again: "I don't want your damn money and I gave u all a chance and u all blew it like I knew u would..now leave me alone and u people can go be cheap and mean somewhere else" and "...u all are pathetic and are a waste of my time". Isn't that sad??

I emailed his mom and asked for her help in this situation. I figure she could talk to him and reason with him. My God, if my kids even STARTED to talk to their dad that way, I would ground them until they got over their rudeness! She, of course, never even acknowledged my email. See, lately she has been incredibly rude to me. She shakes her head and scowls at me whenever she sees me....she talks about me--loudly--in public to other people, and she pulls the kids away from me any chance she gets. I really think the behavior of SS 1 has a lot to do with the way she treats me and/or us. I can't imagine she ever says anything nice about us to him. I've been researching Parental Alienation Syndrome and I really think this is happening here.

Well, another load of laundry is calling my name. Time to run. Have a great evening!!

Bless your heart. You've got a lot going on now. And no, I can't imagine talking to anyone like that!
I hope things look up for you very soon.

I'm so sorry to hear that. That must be terribly difficult. Just keep taking the high road and I'll definitely keep you guys in my prayers.

It's a shame that some parents don't realize just how much they influence their children. He seems so angry... I wish I could offer more advice. Hang in there!!

I hate it when laundry calls me name. I try to ignore it until the last possible moment.

I'm so sorry to hear about SS#1's mean texts. I hope he shapes up soon. Keep at him and one day he'll appreciate it...when he grows up and matures more...hopefully. That has to be so hard though. Sorry.

Hope your daughter felt better and was able to trick-or-treat!

Hang in there...it took seven years of H**L before we finally have a great relationship with the ex and my step daughter. Time and age seems to heal things.

I never thought it would be possible...but me and my husbands ex actually sit together at the kids games. Miracles can happen!

My heart goes out to you. My own daughter has her issues and they are very hurtful to both my hubs and I and our son. I keep praying one day she will grow up enough to realize just because we didn't have a lot of money didn't mean we didn't have a rich life. It's been 2 1/2 years since she was active in our family. As a mom, it's a kin to mourning a loss. Very difficult. Keep your chin up and hope for the best. Tazzy
