Today

Sixteen years ago today, my parents made the biggest mistake of their lives. They married each other. :| Now they're in the middle of a divorce and hate each other. They don't like to admit that they hate each other, but it's so obvious. She treats my dad like shit, and he always tells me he can't stand her.

I wonder why they ever married each other in the first place. My mother always tells me that their marriage has sucked ever since I was little. (Great! e_e She blames it on him, though.) Why didn't they divorce then? Well, I guess I'm kinda glad they didn't divorce way back when. I would have ended up living with psycho bitch.

In other news, one of my 2943874932 friends who moved away is coming back to my town for a visit next week. I have no idea how long she is going to stay. For some reason, I get this feeling that she won't want to see me because she has tons of other friends here. She will probably end up busy with them. D: Of course, that's how I feel about everything. Why do I always feel so... inferior? Is that the right word? Honestly, I'm not sure. I can't really think of a word to accurately describe how I feel about myself.

Hmm, what else? Oh, great-grandmother is going crazy. She has been for a while now, and it's kind of sad. Yesterday, she had a major freak out because she "couldn't find her babies." When it was explained to her that her "babies" are 65 years old now, all hell broke loose. So, my grandpa had to drive an hour to her house in order to show her that he is, in fact, not a baby. They should really put her in assisted living... Last week, she freaked out over her mother, who has been dead since the 60s, and then a couple months ago, she was somehow convinced that my grandpa was her husband, and he was cheating on her with both my grandmother and their neighbor (because the neighbor watched TV with him). Yet they won't get her any medication or put her in assisted living! :| I hope that if I ever get that out of the loop, someone DOES something about it!

aww, I LOVE old

aww, I LOVE old people.
every woman in out family history has started to go senile at the age of 75. I've got that in store for me too. I can imagine it would be pretty fun.

One of my earliset memories is of my grandma giving me a proper death glare from her window, then screaming "JUDITH, HAVE YOU STOLEN MY PANTYHOSE?"

It was so fun to go out places with her and she had an awesome sense of humour when she wasn't going weird. She was a proper stunner in her day, we have loads of pictures. She died last year though, and I still miss her :(

Haha, wow, I wish my grandma was that fun. x) I'm sorry she died, though...

"Judith, have you stolen my pantyhose!?" Hehehe, that's great right there.

I'm sorry about your

I'm sorry about your parents. My parents got divorced when I was coming out because boy did I have great timing there. So I was fourteen. That was four years ago. Thankfully, it was too ugly. My mom's boyfriend is dealing with his ex wife a lot though, and I have to hear about. I'm always here for you. I know what it's like to have your parents bad mouth one another and all that stuff. You can pm me anytime. xD

Thank you. :3 I am fourteen,

Thank you. :3

I am fourteen, like you were, and my parents, obviously, are in the middle of a divorce. It's not the divorce itself that bothers me. It's the fact that my mom won't get off her butt and get a job. She fully plans to mooch off my dad for a few years, and for some reason, he's going to just let her. :| Ah, I'll stop ranting now.

Aww, that kind of sucks. My

Aww, that kind of sucks. My mom had to move out when my parents were getting a divorce, not very traditional, but neither are my parents (then again my dad moved out when I was seven and they got back together..so..). I have the best parenting plan ever... or I think the one that works best. I stay at my mom's house one week and we go to my dad's house on sundays to stay a week there and then we do that. One week at one parent's and one week at another parents.
I also suggest (if you have any kind of say in their divorce) that holidays be split like we did ours. Any holiday that we get off school for we go to my mom's house during even numbered years and odd for my dad's. And with big things like Christmas it always stays the same. Xmas with mom and Xmas day at dad's. Easier to remember that way if it's consistent.

And you don't have to worry about bitching about it even if your friends don't have parents that are divorced. It's hard. Even if you're taking it well (which it sounds like it) then you still need to talk about it. I went in to therapy around that time. Ended up liking her and still go every other week. It's nice to have a safe place just to talk about things that are going on in your life.

I also hope that your parents are taking to you openly about it (while not bashing the other) because that helps understand why they are getting a divorce. And all that jazz. I hope my VERY long post helped. *HUGS* Again, you can always PM me, or if you want we can chat on yahoo/google (sorry, that's all the messaging services I have besides fb).
