1. How old are your kids? Do you have boys or girls?

I have a son, 23 from a previous "marriage".  My H has a S, 13 and a D 10 from a previous marriage and we have a 3 year old son together from our marriage of four years.

2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now?

I grew up in South Carolina and am very used to the coastal life and now reside snap dab in the middle of the country in Fairway, Kansas.

3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other?

I met my husband in a mutual interest group about 6 years ago while he was still married,  I know you want to think I am a home wrecker but I'm not they wrecked their marriage way before I was in the picture.

4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself?

I like to read, watch some tv, listen to music, craft, play some games on the computer, shop, talk on the phone, pedicures and manicures.

5. What's on your mind today?

Discontent concerning my marriage and my "relationship" with my SK's and the way my H and I co-parent or the way I parent and the way my H DOES NOT parent.  I want to pull my hair out.  I have hated my SK's for some time now and when I googled "I hate my step kids" and cafemom.com came up, I was so relieved to find that I was not alone and that I am not a villian in all this.  Yeah,  I hate my SK's and I am starting to hate my H because he just allows their behavior to escalate and he doesn't back me up.  I hate the BM, too.  She shouldn't have been allowed to have children, if you ask me.  I will vent more later.  I am exhausted from a long weekend of having the freaks over this weekend!!  I would love to have some replies.  Is anybody out there.  Missing the beach...

1.HI, I only have one kid, my daughter, Sally, and she is 2

2.I grew up in California, but now I live in Pearland, TX.

3. I met my S.O. in highschool, BUT we found each other a few years later via social media. It was history after that.

4. I like to SLEEP!!!!! Oh, and to be productive, work, study, look up new things to try.

5. My mind is how I can continue to be a caretaker for my daughter and mother, but still bring money into the household. I would really like an opportunity to work from home because my mom REALLY needs me here, but how can I do that when we need the money???!! I'm not so worried about the L.O., she needs to go to daycare/school, she needs companionship and I'm not close to ready to POP another one out.lol.
