so frustrated...

I am at odds with how I should be feeling right now.

Bridget was with her sister all weekend ~ she is dealing with cancer and needs help after her chemo treatments. I understand that and I love Jeanette and would help her with anything myself if needed. But there are other siblings and family that can also rotate the weekends. Bridget is not spending time with the girls like she needs to be. Never mind the fact that she is not doing any of the household things that are also necessary for daily life with 2 children. I want to say something but know that it will be taken wrong and completely out of context. I am trying to formulate my thoughts and write something down for her. I think I am going to tell her to take care of the girls this weekend ~ her dad and stepmom want to see the girls anyway. There are so many things that need to be different but I can only be responsible for me and my actions. It makes me sad that I have to tell her these things ~ she should be initiating time with the girls. I know she loves them but she needs to grow up and take responsibility.

I am trying to get in with my therapist this week - I need some direction and help with communication. I am wondering if we should still think about couples' counseling, to help with parenting stuff???


  1. Oh Dina, that sounds very frustrating. I'm a big fan of writing things down to communicate too. I think that's a good idea. Gonna do anything fun with the weekend? When I want Trey to be in charge, I have to leave the house, or everything defaults to my responsibility anyway.

  2. ((hugs)) I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much now.

  3. You're dealing with SO much right now. I'm so sorry.

  4. Lots of hugs to you sweet Dina! Your a wonderful momma and woman! I'm so happy you are blogging! :)
