@bigblendedfam: Are you overdoing the fun so that your home overshadows the other parent's? NEW POST: http://bit.ly/YyVjQu -- shared via UberSocial http://ubersocial.com
This is what happened when my two younger stepkids used to visit.
When they got older, like 15-16-ish, a couple times they emailed my husband about their visits being boring and if they are going to be boring, they aren't coming for a visit. When they came out, and reported to their mother what went on in OUR house, the ex would whip off an email or make a phone call to tell us what was going on, according to HER.
On the other hand, my husband would get emails telling him where they went with their mother, and how they had so much fun. Yeah, GREAT! When we did take them to the fair one time, the ex slammed him for it.
My hubby was damned if he did, damned if he didn't, when it came to having to do anything regarding his kids. It was his EX that always tooted her own horn about how great she was, so hubby …

Plead NOT GUILTY...what!?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/27/teens-threaten-steubenville-rape-victim-twitter_n_2962498.html

This just doesn't make sense to me! First of all, to even THREATEN like that, and secondly, the girls have been CAUGHT, and they are going to plead NOT GUILTY? How sad that our society has become a "deny deny deny" instead of taking the punishment for what one has done....smh. These teen girls are of age where they know right from wrong.

My Health

SO, back in Dec 2012, I was diagnosed with Diabetes. It runs in my family, and my dad had it, as does my older brother. I've lost 32 pounds, thus far, and I had lab work done yesterday and today, and it seems the results came back really good! I am SO HAPPY with the results and whats really funny is that my doc said yesterday she felt I would be real happy with the results, even before I went to the lab! WELL, she was right! So far, what I have to do is exercise some more, and I think I will be in working order again, YEAH!!

Having said this, it reminds me of something my husband's ex wife wrote me one time.  I have no doubt that this woman is just WAITING for my demise to take place, so she can do just this...

Isn't she so sweet? Yet, she says she has caused NO problems whatsoever with my husband, and she said she has nothing to do with reason's their kids didn't talk to him anymore before he, my husband, died.

She lies...

Interesting Information...4 is a charm!

Thank GOD for public information :-) Since I thought of writing my book on my life as a stepparent, I have been doing a little investigative work. I was really just thinking about my husband's ex and WHAT could make her so goddamn bitchy all the time. I've stumbled upon some information I found quite interesting, I don't know if it has any meaning or if MY suspicion is correct, but maybe one of you will come up with the same idea I did. Let's see....

My husbands ex remarried in 1993, to the man that she would tell my husband she would marry and she will go to him because HE loves her and will take care of her. When my husband and her were married, he had his own trucking company, and she can't and would never convince me she was not taken care of, when she writes things like this in Sept 1990...

I guess, or it appears to me, that the "Other guy" probably made more money, and since MONEY is the underlying subject matter in all her emails and letter and pho…

Interesting...

http://members.calbar.ca.gov/fal/Member/Detail/48445This is the attorney my husbands ex used to file a wage garnishment in their divorce. It's also the same attorney a high school friend of hers (aka career criminal) used as Counsel during the "Operation Party Line" case in San Diego.

Just remember...

That's right, it is THEM, there is something wrong with THEM. I can so understand this, after going through everything my husband and I went through, in dealing with his ex wife. Several times, he asked her, "What is WRONG with you?!"

GREEDY SOB....

About 4 hours ago, I got a knock on the door. It was my landlord. I turned in a letter regarding our cat, back in January, from my son's doctor. Today, landlord delivers a notice, "Dated this 25 day of March, 2013" that my rent is going up another $75, effective May 1, 2013...It's not even the 25th!

I call bullshit, of course. ALL previous years, the rent was raised by $50 and this time, it's raised $75? Sounds like a Pet Fee to me...

Children Learn What They Live....

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive. If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves. If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy. If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy. If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty. If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence. If children live with tolerance, they learn patience. If children live with praise, they learn appreciation. If children live with acceptance, they learn to love. If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves. If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal. If children live with sharing, they learn generosity. If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness. If children live with fairness, they learn justice. If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect. …

Make No Apologies

I'm not gorgeous or hot, I don't have an amazing figure or a flat stomach. I am far from being considered a model! I eat food, I have curves, and I love my jeans and Ole Miss Rebels t-shirts! I'm random and crazy, I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. I am who I am, you can love me or not. I won't change! And if I love you, I do it with all my heart! I make no apologies for the way I am! Repost if you agree.. (A Breath of Fresh Air-FB)

How Angels Speak To Us...

How do angels speak to us? Well there are many different ways: Repetitive thought patterns, precognitive dreams, feathers, spoken words that we hear on the TV, Radio, and conversations where we catch something just at the right part, through lyrics in a song that is playing quite randomly, rainbows, repetitive number sequences, and people that appear in our lives just at the right time. The list goes on and on, if you're new to this I am sure if you think back you can remember times some of the above have occured or you spotted a cloud shaped in a particular way. I am not going to argue with anyone who may believe that I shouldn't speak to the angels, and that all glory goes to god, of course it does, nor am I going to argue with anyone who doesn't believe in god or the angels. Whatever you believe in the level of signs you receive back from your belief is the same. ♥ Angelic Inspiration (from FB)

Art of a Good Marriage

Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the little things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end
with the honeymoon, it should continue through the years.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family.
It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,
but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
understanding and a sense of humor.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old.
It is…

Sex of Flies

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.
"What are you doing?" She asked. "Hunting Flies" He responded.
"Oh. Killing any?" She asked. "Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied. Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell?" He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

The Road to New Beginnings

I did not write this, but the link for it is not working as it is from my old blog... :-(
~~~~~~~~~~
Life is a collage of beginnings and endings that run together like still-wet paint. Yet before we can begin any new phase in life, we must sometimes first achieve closure to the current stage we are in. That's because many of life's experiences call for closure. Often, we cannot see the significance of an event or importance of a lesson until we have reached closure. Or, we may have completed a certain phase in life or path of learning and want to honor that ending. It is this sense of completion that frees us to open the door to new beginnings. Closure serves to tie up or sever loose ends, quiets the mind even when questions have been left unanswered, signifies the end of an experience, and acknowledges that a change has taken place. 

The period of completion, rather than being just an act of finality, is also one of transition. When we seek closure, what we really want is an und…

One Flaw in Women

Food for thought for women and men: One Flaw In Women 
Women have strengths that amaze men. 
They bear hardships and they carry burdens, 
but they hold happiness, love and joy. 
They smile when they want to scream. 
They sing when they want to cry. 
They cry when they are happy 
and laugh when they are nervous. 
They fight for what they believe in. 
They stand up to injustice. 
They d! on't tak e "no" for an answer 
when they believe there is a better solution. 
They go without so their family can have. 
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. 
They love unconditionally. 
They cry when their children excel 
and cheer when their friends get awards. 
They are happy when they hear about 
a birth or a wedding. 
Their hearts break when a friend dies. 
They grieve at the loss of a family member, 
yet they are strong when they 
think there is no strength left. 
They know that a hug and a kiss 
can heal a broken heart. 
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. 
They'll drive, fly, walk, r…

More Blonde jokes

Did you hear about the two blondes who froze to death in
a drive-in movie? They went to see "Closed for the
Winter."

                  ***************
                  Why did the blonde resolve to have only 3 children?  She
heard that one out of every four children born in the
world was Chinese.

                  ***************

                  Did you hear about the near-tragedy at the mall?  There
was a power outage, and twelve blondes were stuck on the
escalators for over four hours.

                  *****************

                   A blonde was driving home after a game and got caught
in a really bad hailstorm. Her car was covered with
dents, so the next day she took it to a repair shop.
The shop owner saw that she was a blonde, so he decided
to have some fun.

                   He told her just to go home and blow into the tail pipe
really hard, and all the dents would pop out.

                   So, the blonde went home, got down on her hands and
knees and started blowing into he…

21 Beautiful Rules to Live By

1). Give people more than they expect and do it  cheerfully.

Favorite Blonde Jokes

A blonde  decides to try horseback riding, even though she  has had no lessons or prior experience. She mounts  the horse unassisted, and the horse immediately springs  into motion.
It  gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the  blond begins to slide from the saddle. In  terror, she  grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to  get a  firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around  the horse's  neck, but she slides down the horse's side anyway.
The  horse gallops along, seemingly oblivious of its slipping  rider. Finally, giving up her frail grip, the  blond attempts to leap away from the horse and throw  herself to safety. Unfortunately,  her foot has become entangled in the stirrup,  she is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding  hooves as her head is struck against the ground  over and over.
As  her head is battered against the ground, she is mere  moments away from unconsciousness when to her great  fortune ........ Frank, the Wal-Mart greeter, sees  he…

I Wish You Enough...

Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said, "I love you and I wish you enough".

The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough.  Your love is all I ever needed.  I wish you enough, too, Mom".

They kissed and the daughter left. The mother walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking,  "Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?".

Yes, I have," I replied. "Forgive me for asking,
but why is this a forever good-bye?".

"I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be
for my funeral," she said.

"When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enoug…

Dear Kids....

Dear Kids, 

Don't be alarmed, the world isn't coming to an end. I am simply taking a bath. It will take about 30 minutes and will involve soap and water. Yes, I know how to swim. Even if I didn't, forcing myself to drown in a half-inch of lukewarm water is more work than I've got energy for. (Which reminds me, I'm all for science projects, but the next time you want to see if Play-Doh floats, use cold water.) 

Don't panic if I'm not out right on time. I've heard that people don't dissolve in water and I'd like to test the theory. While I'm in the tub, I'd like you to remember a few things, the large slab of wood between us is called a door. Do not bang to hear my 
voice. I promise that even though you can't see me, I am on the other side. I'm not digging an escape tunnel and running for the border, no matter what I said a while ago, I didn't mean it. 

Honest. 

There will be plenty of time later to tell me about your day. Later mea…
