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!!
