I swear it's been one of the longest days of my life. And M and katie did everything humanly possible to drag it out as long as they could. Yes. husband told M when he picked the kids up for school (yes they went cuz grandpa mistakenly told them they were going) that he would be back to pick them up at 9:45 am as it was time to talk. Since this was news to me.........I'd just woken up........I was more than a bit surprised. husband? Really?? OMG! So, yeah, tells you how fed up we are with the two of them. When they got here I told katie she had to call the shelter as M didn't bother to give them any info and they were still holding the spot, which they were going to USE because we would not be taking them up there tomorrow. I told her she'd better get to the rest of the laundry and get packing as they had a deadline to meet. I didn't give them the opportunity to argue. It wasn't up for debate. I did manage to do it without raising my voice and keeping it tactful. Katie spent the rest of the day washing clothes and packing. M spent much of it enticing Evan into bad behavior. I did let them cook supper............only because they had bought the food, had ASKED, and they wouldn't arrive at the shelter in time for the evening meal. That won't ever happen again. They drug out frying chicken for 2 hrs..........omg! They just left. Thanks be to the heavens above!! Was not any one thing that caused husband to do the confrontation..........just all the attitude was finally enough to push us over the edge. I am so done. No more help. None. Even if they continue to check on shelter openings here and they happen to come back..............From here on out they're on their own. Sink or swim. I don't have high hopes. M kept talking all day how he's gonna get a job so they can have nights in a motel. (royal huh?) And he kept going on and on about what all he was going to buy. If he gets hired by anyone I'll probably keel over. And katie? Please.........she's got to stay outta bed long enough.........don't see it happening. Whatever. They're someone else's problem now. They'll come visit for the holidays, period. My heart aches for the grands..........but there is nothing I can do about the decisions and actions of their parents. I hope this is enough to open katie's eyes. If it isn't then nothing will. PEACE and QUIET! No more M knocking on the door all throughout the day...........WOOT!!!!! Although I pity husband. He has to put up with 3 riled up kids in the car for the next hour and a half, then drive the hour and a half back home again.
