Real life just slammed me in the face...

Real life just slammed me in the face today...

1. What is it with kids these days? I sent at least 3 reminders to Gag about calling her dad on his birthday...we had it all planned she was calling in the AM with chortle and little giggle so they didn't have to leave a message and could actually talk to him...and its now been a full day AFTER his birthday and we have yet to hear anything from her. Not even a voice mail.

He feels awful.

It makes me so mad.

At 17 and 1/2 you should be able to think about other people, right? I want to say something to her, but it won't be very nice....so I better keep my mouth shut...isn't that how that saying goes? If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all?

How about if I just leave her a message on MySpace checking in to see if her busy life has settled down enough to be able to wish her dad a happy birthday this century? Or maybe I can post it on my page under the folder, PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW HOW TO THINK ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES...or maybe I'll just keep my mouth shut....

2. Gag's madre....Cruella DeVille...is whining about how she has "extended the olive branch" and why can't we all be friends...

I'm so confused...was it just last week I wrote about the pictures on her MySpace page? Was it just a couple of months ago that she told Mr. C that if "that woman ever comes near her or her children she'll...."

Well....I guess my old brain is falling apart because according to HER she has done nothing but go out of her way to make it easy for us....she even said in her email that she has no longer been "trying to make things difficult for our relationship." Well, not only do I take that as admission of guilt in that area, but she makes all these comments due to the fact that she has found someone else...Her new boyfriend has apparently made life blissful for her. Now she wants to sit together at concerts and sporting events. She wants to be more friendly and be invited into our house and have herself invited into ours. UGH...I'm getting sick just thinking about it.

My response....No thanks, Cruella. As soon as your boyfriend dumps you (heaven forbid) it will be back to the old times...I'd much rather just not having anything to do with you at all....

Am I being petty? Am I making the wrong decision? Should I actually try to have a FRIENDSHIP of sorts with Cruella DeVille? (She kills little dalmations for a fur coat....is that what I want in my life?)

Real life sucks some days....I want to throw my 17 and 1/2 year old stepdaughter over my knee and spank her and I want to throw up on her mother...

I need another vacation.

Cruella is a narcissist--you can read her profile at http://www.narcissism101.com/CopingwithNarcissists/nattack.html

I recognize her as a narcissist because of this description on the narcissist attack site: "The attack of a Narcissist is usually unexpected, abrupt and blind sides you. At some time in the past or present they have been humiliated by something you said, the way you looked at them or even by your achievements (this can be how you look, your house, your vacation and even your intelligence). They keep grievances for a long time, letting them simmer and then springing it on you when you least expect it, or when you are unprepared."

I'm dealing with one of these right now, too. I chose the "stay away" option because I'm not magnanimous for the gracious response! :)
