So, we went to my dad's on saturday. My youngest step-sister was there and spent the whole time chain smoking and telling anyone who would listen ...
Amazing all around. Stay away from this whole thing. Let the authorities figure this out. She could have NOT beat him up b/c she didn't know if to feel jealous or outraged. Believe me, she wouldn't be the first person who didn't know how to handle this -- impaired or otherwise.

Man oh man -- I would stay away from all of this, though. It's crazy!

WOw, squishy. My head spins just from reading that! And if she IS making up the child predator stuff, that is nasty. What a horrible thing to make up!
No sh!t. Whatever the truth is, it's my niece that is going to get screwed. This man is the only father she's ever known (her bio dad was killed in a car accident when she was 6-7 months old) but now she's not even supposed to talk about him, even though in her eyes he's done nothing wrong. She is totally at the mercy of her nut job mom and she will parrot whatever she is told. We're hoping that her bio-dad's family can get her out of there, even if it's just for the summer.

And the cherry on top of all this is that I'm not even supposed to know. H doesn't want the family to know anything - she's going to let people think the bf cheated on her or beat her and that's why the wedding is off (which no one has been notified of yet either - good thing I didn't buy a gift!). I know she doesn't want the family to know anything because we will call her out on this.

They need to be very strict about the parent's being TOTALLY FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE......even having to borrow, to reimburse.....guaranteed to end any future problems......

Oh, I will, as best I can. If it wasn't for the fact there is a minor child involved, I think we (me and the other 2 step-sisters) would have cut ties with my step-sister after her their died (about 3 years ago).

And thank you for another point of view. I can't imagine it going down like that, but I have to remember that it is possible.

Two things we aren't touching with a 10 foot pole at the Matilda house are 1) J's POS bio dad probably has lung cancer and 2) SIL's cousin is pregnant with baby #3 at the ripe old age of 20. Same dad for all 3, but they're not really 'together', he doesn't like to work, but does enjoy chatting up 13 year old girls on the Internet. He's 27 or 28. Woo!

Well, I think it's sick to feel jealous -- but it happens.

Ha! I forgot about that.

Nope, she felt much better after talking to me. I think she just needed to share the stress.

Well Squishy's thing totally kicks asss on my little rant/annoyance, but here it is anyway.

Family structure: 1 (full) bio sister with 2 kids, 2 step-sisters on mom's side 3 kids each, and 1 each step-sister 4 kids, and step-brother 3 kids (both dead) on dad's side.

The nieces and nephews you guys see me talk about all the time are from mom's side except for the nephews from bio sister.

My mom adopted the youngest of the step-sisters' kids so he is my nephew/brother (he WAS 22 at the time) <shrug> and my dad adopted one of my step-brother's kids so she is my niece/sister (she was like 10 at the time).

Somehow a while back she found me on Facebook. I don't really have any emotional connection there, but yeah ok whatever, we can be "friends." I talk to her occasionally, but pretty rarely.
1987 was a banner year. Mary was born in March, Christopher was born in June, then John's (step-bro) OTHER daughter (Andrea) was born in July. He also had a son ("Little John") who was born in like 82-ish.

Recently Mary has made contact with "Little John" and Andrea and is forming a relationship with them. Totally cool. NOW she wants to drag me into it. Oh and just for good measure, she's in touch with her cousins (step-sister's on dad's side kids), which is fine, but again, she wants to drag me into it.

I will be changing my name and moving to Tibet.

I thought I had a boring life too - until yesterday.

So be careful, it could happen to you too!

Damn. My prom date's dad dropped dead yesterday.:-( He was really nice; could have been one of the Superfans on SNL with his thick Chicahgo accent.

Gotten all kinds of bad news about friends' parents lately. Dead, dying, yadda yadda. I feel like I'm ahead of that terrible curve, and I feel like I can help friends through it without it sucking me in to my own grief. So, I guess that's good...or something.

Also, I know I told the regs at dinner, but I don't know if I mentioned it on here, but I think they're realizing they don't have money for a wedding anytime soon. Heh. I don't think anyone is too concerned with them extending their timeline at all.

That tells me that they weren't all that interested in getting married, then, because you can get married for the cost of the license application. Judge's chambers = free wedding ceremony.

Wow.
I leave for a couple hours and all h*ll breaks loose.
Mimi and Squishy- even with a score card I had trouble following who was doing what to whom.

Squishy- If step sister and bf were married she would be in a lot of trouble for making unfounded allegations. Not ure how that works if you are not married.

Toj- I thought of Beetlejuice as well.(I once worked with a guy who looked a lot like Michael Keaton. Drool, wipe chin with back of hand, but he didn't wear black striped pajamas)

Squishy- is it the 16 year old who is on a mission trip? Has anyone asked her if anything happened?Does she know what her mother is saying?

And , may I say, wow!
