A Stepmother Is MIA
Just kidding – we had a strange weekend here at the old Bleep Household. Nothing bad…nothing good…a lot of just odd. We continue to experience gurgles from the Girl…more and more we are convinced that she is uncomfortable with me in general and with her half-brother in particular.
Friday, as you all know, was another mini D-Day for the lad. I asked him if had had a chance to contact any of the resources I found for him – he hadn’t. I tried explaining the next set of resources I had for him, including 3 online job sites that I set up accounts for him on, the name of the youth league referee coordinator (the Lad has expressed interest in become a professional referee) and 3 restaurant owners (he also has shown some interest in this area). I asked him for his email address – which he has yet to give me. Basically we have had no movement as far as he goes. I know, I know, none of us are surprised right?
Hubba took him to the corner store Saturday night and they talked for about an hour out in front of the house. Apparently O once again expressed to the Lad that something has to change. That we want him here, if he is working towards a future, but if he isn’t…The lad confirmed a few things for us though. The Girl has, very specifically, told him that the Little Guy isn’t really their brother (which he is) and that Mrs. X has repeatedly given him the “Your father has a new family now and can’t be worried about you any more” speech as well as the ‘you are getting the short end of the stick’ speech.
I don’t understand this. Why is Mrs. X doing this? Supporting these lies? Telling my SS that we don’t care about him and that if I wasn’t here everything would be hunky dorey? I don’t get it….
There are like six different posts based on just the information above, but I’m tired, tired of trying, tired of fighting for a better future for my SS (and yes, that is what I am doing in a weird way). I’m sure that tomorrow, in the bright light of day I’ll feel like continuing, but right now, I’m just so tired.
I’ll be making the round to all my favorite stepmoms and stepdads to catch up on your lives.
I’m Just So Tired,
The Wicked, and Exhausted, Stepmother
