Ok, we had my stepsons over 4th of July weekend and we are suppose to drop them off on Sunday's with her. Well ME AND HER had made the agreement that if the boys came down on Monday (instead of Friday) and stayed all week until Sunday that she would pick them up after the fireworks were over (we went to Chicago to see the fireworks at the marina). Well Sunday she calls up and says "oh we're not picking them up after the fireworks you have to drop them off!" So we have a HUGE two hour arguement with her and I get SO mad. Well she backs off and says she'll pick them up sometime BEFORE the fireworks, and we leave it at that. Well, we get the the marina, have a couple drinks, and then she calls and says she NOT picking the boys up and that we have to drop them off NOW (and she lives an hour and a half away). So there's ANOTHER hour long arguement in front of people that my dad works with and then we decide to drive them home and then come back for the fireworks. So we drive them back (there's another half hour arguement at the door) and then we pay ANOTHER $18 to park (plus the original $16 we paid when we first got to the marina). Well we called her later that week and told her we wouldn't be taking them this week because it's my birthday Monday and my parents had paid for us to go to Wisconsin Dells for the week ( and she said fine but she needed extra money besides the $600 we pay to her every month anyways!) So we sent her a check (which she QUICKLY cashed) for an extra $100. Well I get a call from her JERK OFF boyfriend today saying she was on her way to drop the boys off tonight (thursday) and I said "no, they can't come, we have plans and won't be home until next Sunday!" Well evidently they took the child support money that we had given them plus the EXTRA $100 and had booked themselves a nice vacation somewhere to be gone ALL THIS WEEK, and just decided not to say anything. So I called my husband up at work, balling my eyes out because now we can't go on vacation. He called her and she replied "It's your weekend with the boys so YOU'RE taking them!" Just to fill you all in I haven't had a vacation in three years, and this was going to be a makeup honeymoon. So she drops them off at our doorstep like twenty minutes after I get this call from her STUPID boyfriend. IT'S NO FAIR!!! I know I might be a little hard to follow but I'm SO MAD right now. She was given notice that we wouldn't be here and she did all this stuff on purpose. Now we have to cancel our trip, and stay home. The worst thing is my husband took his last week of vacation this week coming up and now he HAS to take it so we can't reschedule his vacation or the trip . And the oldest boy has just been a complete JERK ever since he got down here! I mean I do LOVE these boys but I was SO excited about getting a vacation and I have NEVER been to Wisconsin Dells so I was SO EXCITED! I may sound a little ignorant but I'm not mad at the boys I'm mad at my husband's ex-wife! She has ruined EVERY special thing that we have done, or wanted to do, since I met my husband. She ruined my baby shower, she ruined our daughter's first birthday, she's ruined every birthday I've had since I met Mark, and Mark's too. And it's all because she is jealous and still thinks she can control Mark's every moves and she still thinks she can push him around! Sorry I couldn't help myself I'm just SO MAD now. I was SO looking forward to just going away for a week and not having to deal with anything and just relaxing!
