I'm Not Your Typical Grandma

At 39 years old, I'm not your typical Grandma. Technically, I'm a Step-Grandma (cuz I would have to kick my 17 year old's ass)
I have 3 step children, and 3 step grandchildren. It's INSANE, I know...
My husband and I only have a relationship with his oldest son Jason who is 22yrs old and he has our 9 month old grandson Tyler.
I don't want to even get into it about the other two kids and grandkids, it's really way too complicated to write in a post.

Last week was a very stressful week for me (hence, not one post was written)
Jason got temporary custody of Tyler, so needless to say it's been all about the DRAMA DRAMA and more DRAMA. Tyler has been coming here during the day while Jason goes to work and looks like this will be the case for a while. My kids were on Spring Break, so that made it a little easier and harder at the same time. It is never a dull moment around here, with this CRAZY-ASS family.

Seriously, I don't know how I ever got anything done with my kids when they were infants.
I am soo "out of that zone" that I don't know my ass from my elbow. My mother-in-law has been helping out alot, but even between the two of us it is alot of work. It has taken a mental and physical toll on me. I find myself getting way too attached to the baby and trying to take it all on. I am forgetting that I have two sons of my own that need their mother. So, I really have to try to find the balance of making sure I take care of me, Nick, Thomas, Chris, Jason and Tyler. I have alot on my plate, I tend to take on too much and wind up burnt-out, bitter, angry and hurt.
So, I am hoping this week will be a little less stressful and I can find a way not to be so crazed. I really need to get back to writing posts, commenting, cleaning my house, doing all the undone projects around here, get back on track with my diet and everything else that comes along.
