Everything in this blog is my personal opinion and sort of a journal of things happening in my life.
I never thought someone would care so much about one of my blog posts (I have two followers, one of which is my mom) but, my former sister-in-law is throwing a fit about the post I wrote last year. Because of all the flack I felt it was necessary to do a follow up post.
First off, all the hype about the post has been heard second hand. Alba Rosy Greer will not actually call and talk to me about it but has been telling my brother to tell me to take it down. Like I have ever done anything my brother asked me to do. I have to say that I am so grateful for my first amendment right. What a great country we live in to express our thoughts and opinions freely.
Since my last post my brother has gotten a divorce and my stress level has gone way down. My brother on the other hand will have to deal with his ex-wife the rest of his life. Of course she got everything because she is a women. It seems it doesn't really matter how great of a parent you are as long as you are the mom. She was pretty much just let off of the assault charge. I believe she got a slap on the hand and some probation. That is the justice system for you.
My sister-in-law moved on really fast after the divorce and even possibly before the divorce. Luckily, Landon has moved on too. He started dating a wonderful young lady in October. His new girlfriend is amazing. She has the best kids and her family seems amazing. The biggest plus for me is that she doesn't sit in front of me and make fun of me in another language. If she does make fun of me (which I don't think she does) she is kind enough to do it behind my back. I have always dreamed of having a sister or sister-in-law I can talk to and do things with.
I think the thing I hate the most about this whole divorce is that Rosy doesn't want my brother to have anything (When I say anything I don't mean physical stuff. I mean happiness, time with his kids). She has even tried to contact Landon's new girlfriend and let her know how "horrible" of a guy he is. Who does that? I could see if he beat her and the kids but not just out of spite. We have warned his new girlfriend just like we warned Rosy. He is not perfect but if she can put up with his crap, that is great.
Rosy is the most selfish person I have ever met. My brother is selfish too but I am surprised how little fight he put up when it comes to all the possessions. He pretty much just wants to see his kids and spend time with them. It was a real eye opener for him to think he might never see his kids again. She tries to get her kids to hate their dad. Those poor children are going to be so screwed up from all of her manipulating. Hopefully they will see through it all when they grow up.
Landon wanted to coach his kids in Soccer this last year but as soon as she found out about it she stopped taking her kids to practice. She told Landon if he gave her some money she would let them go.
Last part of my rant. The kids are also going to suffer because their mom hasn't gotten a job. She thinks she is too good to work at Wal-mart or McDonalds because she has a college degree. Bachelor degrees are about equivalent to a high school diploma these days, It doesn't matter that she says she can not feed her kids or pay her mortgage (on the house she insisted she needed in the divorce). Where is the $1400 a month that Landon is paying in child support going? When I went to visit in November her kids had brand new $200 dollar coats. How can you afford new coats and not food? She told Landon a friend bought them. What I do not get is why the "friend" did not buy the kids food instead? The kids already had coats. I guess if they are not name brand then they are not real coats.
Divorce is the the most awful thing in the world when you have kids. No matter what you do the kids are going to be affected. It is sad. I pray it doesn't happen to my family but no one can predict the future.
