Hi all, I first posted this in Step Families community but maybe it is better suited here. I need some thoughts on attending special events for the children. My husband's ex moved 2 hours away last year. It has put a big strain on our involvement but we try to work through it. This weekend both of my SD's have football games to cheer in. We didn't even know the youngest was cheering in games until last week & this is her last one. We wanted to be there and well be making the 120 mile trip (each way) and getting a hotel room. One will be cheering on Saturday and the other on Sunday. There is also a school function after the game on Saturday. This is a yearly event that the teachers, principals, etc.., attend. When hubby mentioned we'll be there (since we're coming all the way down), mom got defensive that this is "her weekend" and he should not be interfering. My husband only sees his girls every other weekend. They are with mom all the time except for then. She does not work either so she is able to spend lots of time w/ them except when they are in school. I feel shocked that we're coming all the way down there & that she would expect us to miss this school event. Its not like we invited ourselves to go pumpkin picking with them, or something like that. She also doesn't inform us of special events like cheering competitions, etc.., when they fall on her weekend. As far as she is concerned, if its on her weekend we should not be around. We feel if its for the kids & we can make it, we should be there for THEM. Thoughts?

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
