Long Rant

July 12th, 2019 at 04:29 am

I’m on this trip with SO, two of his kids, two grand kids and his mom, it’s their family reunion.

I swear his mom gets on my last nerves. She never use to but I see how she manipulates him and it disgusts me.

First, he’s worked hard to ensure that she makes it to this trip. He’s foot the bill for everyone. We get to the hotel, she walks in her room that she’s sharing with her grand kids and she says, “this isn’t going to work.” I personally don’t know what the hell she’s talking about but says, well it has to work because this is the room they gave you and walk off.

I later find out that she wants him to go purchase a cot/blow up mattress 🛏 because she wants a bed to herself. The room is doubled. I told him tell her no. The last three trips we’ve been on she’s shared a bed with them. The only difference is, his sister who is normally in the room, passed away. I personally think she doesn’t like his other daughter. Why I don’t know.

Then we go to Walmart, she refuses to get onto one of those ride along carts. If she was my mother I’d tell her either she gets on the cart or stay in the car 🚗. Well what should have been a ten minute trip turned into almost a hour. Every two feet she has to stop. She’s tired 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄. Then she’s playing with his grand baby, because she’s out of breath. Next she’s looking at this and that because she’s out of breath, a part of me wants her to pass out 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄. Her and the kids pick up a $100 worth of foolishness, he then gets upset because the kid who had the baby galavants all over the store and don’t pick up what she needs for the baby. 16 year old with a kid. I’m pissed 😤 because she has this baby in the store puking with no bag, no wipe. Walking around this store as the kid is puking and leaving it there. WTF is the baby bag. I tell him, she wanted to have a baby she need to act like a mom. He needs to tell her, she must travel with his bag, even if she’s going into the store because anything can happen.

We’re on the highway she takes the kid out the car seat to burp him. I ask why she takes him out, she says, “how else am I going to burp him?” I say, tell your dad to pull over. Long story short no sooner than this crap, we almost get in an accident. I don’t say one word. Her and her baby is no longer any business of mind.

I can’t even remember what she (daughter with the kid) says to SO but he goes off and rightfully so.

Financial news
Today was pay day, I socked $585 towards my mortgage account. SO is suppose to pay the mortgage next month, I like to save just in case. I’m sure he’ll pay it, he did for July but I’d rather be safe than sorry. Once he pays I’ll throw the money into my EF. To get that back built up.

I’ll be able to add an extra $175 today to the EF as well, so excited. When you have less debt it makes it easier to save.

Though I’m dealing with this legal issue, I pumped the breaks somewhat on CC10. Normally I could throw an extra $500-$600 at it but I’m doing about $100 a month. I don’t know, I just don’t feel right if I’m not throwing something at it. Plus the EF is building back up nicely and it’s only been a month.

I also went ahead and added $34 to the retirement account. This I’m not stopping even though the dollar amount is minimal, I’m too far behind on this and time is against me.

The EF should be back to about $6,000 the end of this month. I’ll still continue to add to it aggressively until my legal woes are over.

    Absolutely, less debt definitely makes it easier to save!

    A sixteen year old with a baby needs guidance, education and support. There is no way she knows all that it takes to raise a baby. I'm not saying she shouldn't do it, but a little less yelling and disgust with her actions, along with compassion and understanding that she is learning as she goes will help her tremendously.

    CCF I agree with you 100% regarding the guidance, unfortunately this kid, doesn’t want to be guided not educated. She’s a spoil brat who I should never had been living with the grandmother, SO mom. I told him a long time ago, get a place for you and your kid and raise her.

    She tried at least 3x to get pregnant, she thought it would have kept the boy. When he tried talking to her or punishing her for other things, the grandmother intervened and then makes comments such as “oh I can’t take this, I’m not feeling well.” Once she says this her son backs down, and don’t do what’s needed. Even his aunt, his mom’s sister says the worst thing for that kid is that she’s over there with his mom.

    Normally I’m on him if he yells at her but last night she deserved every bit of it. I’m old school, she should have been popped in the mouth

    I'm surprised you chose to go on that family trip. Given what you've shared before, I'm also surprised that you didn't get asked to pay for some of it.

    Nice work on the EF. That's got to put your mind more at ease as you go through the legal mess.

  4. Amber Says:

    Nope I made it clear, I was not paying for one thing. That include, gas. I’m glad I came because he definitely need the support dealing with his mom and his daughter. I’m more of a sounding board on this trip

    Sorry this trip is a pain in the patootie.

    Glad you could put some money in EF and retirement.
