No shit, the Drama Llama is back. Uncertain relationships. Work stress. Teenagerdom. Update [2014-5-13 23:16:36 by yankeehack]: LO is home for the day and is reporting that she is getting jerked around my stepmom already in terms of scheduling. So this is going well.

So, about an hour ago I get a call (I never pick up) and a voicemail from an unknown number. It was...stepmom wanting LO's number. We haven't heard from her in two years.

Holy fucking crap, because that is exactly what I needed right now.

As it turns out, the grandparents are in town and want to see LO, which is fine, but they waited until the last possible moment to schedule something...and this is one of LO's busiest weeks of her year.

I texted LO and said "I hope you see your grandparents, but I really don't want the Drama Llama around." LO responded: "Same."

I am writing this still a little discombobulated.

I wonder, if she does see her father, if he'll try to make up the time. We rarely, if ever talk about the guy anymore. We just move forward each day. She's told me that she considers him dead.


In other news, LO has been a little...shall we say teenagery. It looks like she is dumping Jersey boy for real and forever as he is just finding more things to get mad at her for. On Saturday, she hung out with local boy for a bit too long and did not make it home until almost midnight despite most kids having a 11pm curfew. She says he has a senior license and all they were doing was watching "Fight Club" at his Dad's house. Last night, she decamped to the couch to be on the phone with another boy (she won't tell me who).

Also, the 'tude she had while driving home after driver's ed last night.....ERK. She knows everything apparently.


Shit is hitting the fan for work. Which is good and bad.


Not sure what is happening with the guy as he is not that chatty outside of a date. When I texted him on Saturday night, he responded immediately. On Sunday Morning, he texted me Happy Mother's Day, so at least he's keeping the hope alive...I think.

Surely the grands can cough up something to assuage their guilt.

they've actually kept in touch with LO and sent her cards and presents and stuff over the years. She should see them.

On the other hand, they've done nothing to get their assbackward son to do anything. So, there is where I blame them heartily.

Their assbackward son by anonimouse (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue May 13, 2014 at 04:49:26 PM EST surely old enough to do something without any pushing. Surely as long as they have done their part to keep in touch they're reasonably blameless?

however, the ex MiL, in addition to some of the other sibilings should have at least tried to talk some sense to him.

Reminder, he's the guy who not only has not seen his daughter for two years, but who hasn't even sent a freaking card for the last few of her birthdays or Christmas. I mean, that is fucked up.
