So here is what I can’t figure out.
My son acted like a huge asshole on Sunday, July 3rd and got in a terrible accident. By July 4th at 11:00 AM, the Sea Hag decided the kids needed to get out of town. She turned down every alternative that I suggested regarding how she could keep the kids in VA and still spend time with Popeye at the hospital. Hub and I delivered the kids to the Sea Hag’s aunt at 2:00 in the morning on July 5th.
Who does that?
Who sends their two kids 4 states away so she can sit in the hospital with her husband 24/7? She has not left his side except for one night.
Swee’Pea I and Swee’Pea II have been in PA for 8 days now and she hasn’t asked me one thing about them. I am picking up Swee’Pea I on Friday night and I will have her for the whole weekend. So far, I have planned pedicures, craft store, library, book store, ice cream and maybe a movie. I can’t wait!!!
But seriously, who dumps their kids like that?? My feeling is that she doesn’t know how to deal with those kids because Popeye and her mother have been raising them. Something tells me that they are going to be in the “City of Brotherly Love” for the rest of the summer…or until Popeye gets our of the hospital and completes his physical rehab…and maybe another rehab for the pain meds.
The Sea Hag and I actually did have a “come to Jesus” meeting when I was down there this weekend. She told me everything she knew about the pain med abuse and I listened. Personally, I don’t know why she didn’t leave Popeye years ago, except for the fact that she may really love him somehow in that twisted brain of hers.
But the kids – nah, there is no maternal instinct there. Not even a teensy bit.
