Hi, Pad, Welcome back!

I'm sorry that you do not feel happy, don't know what will make you happy, or know what you want.

Re: Moving for my in-laws?

You already know that your ILs are responsible for their own debt, and you should not sacrifice your security for them.

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

Documenting is good. Have you read anything on Relational Aggression? I found some of the articles to be very helpful in identifying and helping handle the mean girl.

Re: At the movies II

A Star is Born-- Wonderful! I am in awe of the talent!

Night School-- This was much funnier than I thought. I did not expect to laugh so hard! Plus, it has a serious note that I appreciated.

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

If DIL meant this to be hurtful, she's got a win-win. Does he know it was mailed to your DD?

The same reasoning which illustrates that it was stupid for him to sign it are the same reasons why...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

Because it's easier to sign it than it is to fight with the woman he's sleeping with. Men (all people, really) do some dumb things to avoid a fight. He's probably thinking that the paper means...

Re: Dr apts. responsibility

"Normal" is exactly what you're doing. If DS wants you, go with him. If he needs you to make appointments for him while he's at school, do it.

My kids just were ready to do it themselves.

She's young. She'll be back, and to many cheers, I am sure.
