In a major blue funk

All of the drama with the kids' mom and DSS staying with us has finally gotten to me. I cannot seem to shake this blue mood I am in. :(

The sun is shining today, which has helped a little. What else can I do to shake off the blues??

When I'm totally down about what's going on around me, there are a few options I choose from.

Thanks, Kristi. I am doing much better today. C. and I had a good night last night and I found out his sister is willing to babysit DSS8 tomorrow night. DSS8 has a Halloween party from 4-7 and then my SIL will babysit after that. That means C. and I get a date from 4 - 10 p.m. WOO HOO.


It does help to vent, you're right. The kids' mom has done some crazy stuff this week. I had DSS8 alone for two days while C. was on a business trip. I had to take him to his activities -- and she had one of her friends show up on Tuesday night at one activity to spy on me. That one just about threw me over the edge. She's the one who said she couldn't handle DSS8 right now, dumped him on our doorstep, but then she can't trust me to take care of him?

I have a great BFF and she has been so good at listening. So has my sister. I found an online group for stepmoms, too, and it helps a lot to know that I am not the only one going through this stuff.

It also helps to know it is temporary. We will get to a happier place soon with everything.

Thanks again. :)
