    We had everyone at my house for Christmas dinner . Of course , I was busy cooking . Boyfriend's son and family came :hunf: His wife has to be the laziest mother I have ever seen . She just flops on the sofa and whatever the 3 nkids do is just fine ! These kids range in age from 7 - 13 mind you . I had a reversible nine patch pinned on my design wall - part of it is destroyed ! I had quilted in the ditch and assembled some of the rows but not all sewed together . RIPPED , looked like they were playing tug of war ! Even some of my sewing things out of the drawer are missing and cannot find ! I'm so blinking mad !
    There have been some words flying around here . John came to see what was the matter , told him . Couldn't believe it either. Next year they can go and trash her Mother's house ! Really needed to vent :-( Annie

    Honey you go right ahead and vent and I would let her know it too! That was uncalled for! If nothing else the 13 year old knew better.

    So Sorry {{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}
    Some people should not be parents :hunf:
    Hopefully you will find the missing items
    Has BF talked to son and his family ? Have BF help put the room back together and help locate missing items .

    Oh my gosh--I'd be chewing nails and spitting screws. I'm SO VERY sorry that happened to you. Just awful. :cry:

    lfw045 can I join you in hiding ? I feel like it ! Poof , I'm gone :thumbup:
    Hid dil comes in here and makes fun of me and my sewing / quilting . She does nothing ! They all know I'm out of work and no money . Then this happened . I'm slowly getting it straightened up . I'm doing it myself , so I know what I find and put it back where it goes . I hate to see what happens years later when they get older . Annie

    The are ALL old enough to know better. As a mother, I would be ashamed if my kids did such a thing.

    I don't know how you stood it! I'd be busting someone up side the head. They would not be invited back to my home until someone agreed to be responsible for the children. Where was boyfriend while all this was going on? You know now you have to close and lock doors, right?

    Sorry it happened to you, it's one of my pet peeves about parents of today.

    Hugs,
    Sharon
