Not too long...just a short one. *** I spoke with One Broom last night - seems easy child 2 is flunking band and is grounded from video games. Cool. Later, I asked again about sports, had easy child 2 ever asked her about it and can she play soccer or something. One Broom actually said sure. Then she went on to say how, now that her hubby's kids are in sports and she has to go to every one of his kids' games, she's all like "what about my kid? its not fair.". So she blamed easy child 2 not being involved in anything on her new hubby's kids' sports - which they've been playing for a whopping 2 months. easy child 2 hasn't been involved in sports for FIVE YEARS. I wanted so bad to say something, but I just kept my mouth shut, happy that finally easy child 2 will be allowed an extracurricular activity. She's been asking us for the past 3 years... *** Two Brooms is at her lake house, but sister in law is filling in while she's gone. Two years ago, sister in law left a t-shirt in our camper. Two, actually. They laid on the back of my couch until around 2 or 3 months ago, and honestly, I can't recall what I did with them then. husband thinks I sent them with him to his mom's then. I can't recall what I did with them, just that I was tired of them being there. I don't know. Anyway, sister in law called last night and wants her tshirt by Friday. *** I told her husband thought he took them to her mom's. She calls Two Brooms, and of course, she's never seen them, so, by default, I MUST still have them. Yeah, ok. So now I'm an even bigger bad guy (if that's possible). *** And to make things worse, I created a facebook page at difficult child 1's request to put pictures of wee difficult child on. It sent out invites to all my email contacts (never crossed my mind when I clicked this button). We went camping last weekend with sister in law's ex husband and his kids...so I posted pics of all the kids in their Halloween costumes. And who becomes my facebook friend, right off the bat? sister in law. She's p*ssed. *** I give. *** I definitely think Thanksgiving is out.
