This is what I whipped up yesterday. It was supposed to be a card, but I didn't have time to finish it, which is what happens when you start something at 3pm and have to be there by 7!!! I almost got it done, to a point that I would of been happy to use it, but I had to slot it into this photo slot thingy, then I wanted to iron it so the interfacing stuck to the card and kept it all in place. Great plan, not great time management.
I'm surprised at how much I like this, the colours are very subtle, and the green and pink are just right. The colours aren't great in the photo. Not sure what I will do with this now. I thought I might swap it on COH even though it not strictly ( well, not at all) a heart, but it is similar in size......
Now for the fun stuff. My 11 year old step daughter has decided to develop an attitude, strongly fuelled by long lasting resentments of her 19 yr old sister. FUN FUN FUN. Have been thru all this shit with Tiffany and I have no intention of having years of it again with Shelby, so I rang her mother and told her just that. I'm afraid that Shelby can't dwell on the fact that her dad does more with our kids than he does with her. HELLO, we live together!!! We see her one night a week for dinner and she stays every third weekend, visitation arrangments that her mother made when she was being a bitch and trying to hurt Rob by keeping the kids from him. I understand that it is difficult for Shelby, but I think alot of this latest stuff is trying to get her mums attention, and it is terribly effective to blame dad. Her mother is not the best at giving her time and attention, doling out money is the usual cure, so a quick bitch about dad to big sister gets good results.
Well, I could go on about this for HOURS, days in fact, but I'm not going to. I have the life I have, but if we do get to do it again, as much as I love Rob, I wouldn't go near anyone with an ex wife and children. Sad but true. I have enough of my own baggage, without having to deal with everyone elses crap. I'm not being heartless here, but you try dealing with a vindictive ex wife ( even though she ended their marriage) and a teenager hell bent on making everyones lives as miserable as possible. I have my own children to consider now, and I'm not having all this crap played out in my livingroom week in and week out.
This blogging lark is great. Not only do I get to vent, but I know that someone will read it, and a problem shared is a problem halved. So thanks, I feel better all ready.
