Not So Random Venting

I would have loved to share photos from Layla's homecoming with you, but none were taken. Layla's Grammy had to make everything about her and just totally ruined the mood for everyone. She kept saying that it was her idea to have a party for Layla coming home and she didn't understand why me and Grampy were doing everything. It was actually Grampy and Aunt Jessie's idea to have a party. And as far as us doing everything...I made some Cap'n Crunch chicken and Diana's favorite cookies and had Publix make a sandwich tray. I did spend Saturday night at Wade and Diana's so that Rossi wouldn't have to endure a 4 hour car trip.

I really try hard to get along with everyone. I have finally given up on Becky after this weekend. I have bitten my tongue so much that it's hanging by a string. I feel sorry for her children. I don't know many parents who will give things to their kids and then expect them to return them when they are done with them. I only expect my kids to hang on to family heirlooms. I don't care what Becky gives her kids, if they don't want it anymore she wants it back. When I give anything to my kids....don't give it back to me. Throw it out, give it to your friends, sell it at a yard sale. Not Becky, you will not throw it or give it away. If you choose to sell it you better be prepared to give her the money for it.

I don't know why I let this woman get under my skin except that she says nothing to me and Hut to our faces. She takes everything out on her kids. And nothing is ever her fault. She makes her kids choose between her and their father. If they speak to their father and she finds out, all hell breaks loose.

I have prayed and prayed about how I feel about Becky. The Lord put His arm around my shoulder and His hand over my mouth. However, I believe He knew I needed to vent and that my friends would understand a let me. So here is where I am doing my venting. I appreciate each and everyone of you and don't really expect any comments. Just pray for me that I don't finally lose it and put this woman in her place. The last thing I want to do is cause any more issues for my daughter in law. But also know that I will continue to go to family events, I don't care WHOSE idea they are, if to be nothing than a thorn in her side.

Okay now I feel better. Thank you again for letting me vent and being the great friends that you are.

Bonnie, it's people like the one you have mentioned that NEEDS to be put in their place. Want me to dod it for you ... lol.

I'm sorry she's so difficult to deal with. I agree if you GIVE someone something, it is then theirs. And they can do whatever they want to with it.

You are doing what is right by praying. God will help you find the right answers. Love you.

You are a caring and sharing person and sometimes it is frustrating when you expect some of the same from people around you and they just don't get it. Please stay yourself and realize they have to live with themselves.
