This weekend was supposed to be a lot of fun for me, my husband and my sister-in-law. She's in from out of town for the holiday and we had a few things planned. One major thing was for Friday night, I'm going out with my sister-in-law and her closest friend from high school (who I just recently found out is the same person I worked with about 12 years ago!). There were a couple other girls coming in from out of town that they knew so we were going to make a girls night out. Everyone was going to stay at our house so they wouldn't have to drive far. Before we know it, this one girl has invited half the town to go out with us! My sister-in-law is somewhat perturbed because she just wanted a quiet night with some friends. Then we find out that this girl wants my husband to watch her kids for her that night. Well, he can't, he's going hunting early the next morning and wont even be awake most of the night. So, she asked my sister-in-law if her parents would watch the kids for her - they're in their 70's and will have their teenage grandsons with them. This girl is doing her best to make everyone else feel like it's their problem that she doesn't have a babysitter. I figure she was a single mom and the dad wasn't around to watch the kids. She's coming in from out of town, so I'm not sure why her parents can't watch them.... I don't know these people, but I'm starting to feel a bit bad for the girl. Until tonight.... Tonight our original plans got pretty screwed up because this girl got herself invited to my in-laws for dinner tonight (when we were supposed to be taking my sister-in-law out to dinner). That was bad enough, but then we find out that she's bringing her BOYFRIEND! As well as her kids... From what we understand, her husband is at home. She's not the single mom I erroneously thought she was, but she's out cattin' around! Now it all makes sense!!! She wants to hang out with her boyfriend and is using this opportunity to do it! Well, I tell you, we want NOTHING to do with that. If she thinks she's staying here Friday night with HIM, she's got another think coming! I so don't agree with this and if I'd have known most of the situation when she smiled and said "Hi" to me tonight like she knows me then I'd have given her a piece of me then! I am going to try so hard Friday to be "civil" but this is definitely someone I don't want to be friends with!!!!

reiny do tell me what happened that night. I have known people like that. I do not what why they get others involved in their lies and their DRAMA. I feel they are so insecure they need others to make them feel good about themselves. Now why couldn't the hubby watch the kids? She probably has to take the kids so he thinks she is not seeing him. I hope you had a good time anyway.

Actually, I ended up falling asleep and not going. I was so tired after working and Thanksgiving that I just went to bed. They all had a great time though...

Wow! I don't know what to say! What nerve! Then why didn't she just leave the kids at home with the husband? That would have made more sense then to drag them along and aren't they going to tell about the boyfriend being there? Something isn't right about this story. Is she living with the husband or are they divorced? How could she do this and the kids wouldn't tell? I'm totally confused. I am missing something here? Either way she doesn't sound like someone that I would want to know either so I don't blame you one bit for not wanting anything to do with her! I guess she wasn't who you thought she was! Oh, well we live and learn. Sometimes the hard way!

I don't know the whole story - and sometimes my husband says he does even when he doesn't. I'm going to try to be calm and cool about it tomorrow night, but there are still no sleep-overs with guys going on!

It all sounds like one huge mess. Why don't she get her boyfriend's parents to babysit for her? hahaha I think that girl is big time trouble. I am sorry that your night tonight was ruined and now I hope that friday night isn't ruined by her also. I just hope that you and your sister in law can have a good time with each other.

Neither my husband nor I can condone what she's doing and if she raises a stink about it, I'm NOT going to keep my mouth shut. Aparently, everyone thinks this guy is her husband and she's kinda playing it off that way. I so want to take the few core of us that want to just hang out with each other and go someplace other than where we're supposed to be Friday night...
