STBX is living at his parent's house and the kids there about 1/2 the time. So I called my MIL tonight to talk to her about making sure that our schedules are more in line with each other. I've tried talking to STBX about it and have yet to get anywhere. She got defensive and told me (for probably the 100th time) that she thinks DS needs to be in school.
When i mentioned that it was hard for me to find a job because I have to tell interviewers that I can't work Wed-Sat because I have the kids while STBX works, she said, 'well just get a job and then figure out childcare.' Um, yeah. First of all, I can't afford it, and second of all, when I talked to STBX about it he didn't want to pitch in, or at least was very hestitant. BUT I am watching the kids while he works (aka providing free childcare for him!) which means it's hard for me to find a job. Also, while he has the kids his Mom is providing free childcare. So he actually sees the kids about one day a week. DS told me tonight that STBX isn't doing hardly any of the homeschooling stuff that I send to his house each week and that he doesn't see STBX very often. The brewery that he is starting (it's on his parent's property, which is mostly why he's living there) is just about to launch so he's really busy with that. It's ALWAYS BEEN THAT EFFING BREWERY. I HATE that brewery with a passion. It's worse than a mistress because it's his life's dream and he's been working on it for eight years now...
Ugh. So then I called STBX and he was out to dinner with a buddy at a local pub, and was like 'why is this all blowing up now?'
So I'm thinking I need to just have the kids Monday-Friday. He can have them his one day off. I'm so pissed. I don't even know what to do right now.
