this crazy marriage is wearing on me in a very bad way. as much as i love my husband and ss that i am raising, all the bs that has went on in the past 6 months concerning the care of my ss outside of this house is straining my marriage and my nerves. (read journal) i have been expected to take on a child with autism that a yr ago the only word to describe him is animal, that has grown to a very bright, beautiful little boy with the potential to grow up to be a productive member of society. his progress has amazed even the professionals at Vanderbilt University Hospital childrens clinic, a leader in the world of diagnosing and treating autism. but since he started showing progress that means other things have to be addressed, school needs to be pushed to teach him instead of treat him like he is unable to learn, other family members have to start treating him like a soon to be 7 yr old boy that is capable of doing everything any 7 yr old can do and not baby him and treat him like he will never amount to anything, and for God's sake stop feeling sorry for him and themselves as well. why is it GOOD NEWS is so upsetting for his family? and then there is the biomom, who allows his 11 yr old halfsister to abuse and molest, yes i said molest him. he told us once she kisses his peepee, he comes home with bruises and tells us sister did it. i am the only one that believes him and dad is in denial that he can make it stop. i cant sit back and act as if its not happening, hubby gets pissed if i tell him that him allowing it to happen makes him just as guilty as them. so what do i do? i know what i need to do, but its not as easy as people think. being step mom makes me the bad guy at all times. how do i keep my marriage in tact and ensure that my stepson is treated right and not abused by his sister anymore?

I started my new job on Thursday. Everyone seems pretty decent. The job is going to be interesting. A lot to learn. It is downstairs (in a basement. No light but very cool temperature wise). I had back injections on Tuesday. I am in horrible pain today. MY dad had his lung/lymph node biopsy done. He is now waiting for the results.
So I am crocheting hats for a lady at works mother. I used a bit of hot glue on the top to close up a gap on one of them. The lady picked it off and wants me to completely redo the hat! And then I ran out of yarn and used a darker shade of the color doeonky the last row and she bought more yarn so the hat would be all one color. Ugh. She is paying me 60$ to make 10 hats.
