LJ Nightmare, round 2

So yesterday I made a post about my mother-in-law's inequity in how she treats my sons in comparison to my stepdaughter, right? 


First there was a message from my brother-in-law for Steve to call him.  Then sometime in the afternoon I got this nasty comment in my journal from someone with a vulgar screen name.  I have my comments set up to log people's IP addresses.  So I checked it against an old email, and it was my brother-in-law. 

When Steve got home from work, he called BIL and fought with him for an hour.  He was told things like "You need to control your wife."   Then he called his mom and got the same kind of stuff except that she dug up every perceived wrong he or I have ever made.  She said that I've been trying to take him away from his family from the very start and now I've got my wish.  She also said that if he brings me to her funeral she'll haunt him and that she guessed that this means she is losing her last grandchild.  Yeah, the last ONE. 

  So Steve essentially lost his family last night and I've never seen him more upset. 

I am so annoyed and frustrated and hurt and I don't even know.  All because I asked for my boys to be treated the same as their half sister.

Ugh, I am so sorry all this is going on. At least Steve knows that it is his family who is being unfair, and not you.

I kinda feel like asking for the IP address... because I'm a bitch. :D

Ooh, fun! :) What can be done with an IP addy? I'm game! :)

Too bad I didn't copy what I wrote... I could've sent it to him via his email addy he used for the account :)

Ah, a cable modem. May vary then. :(

I must console myself with wishing evil things on him such as large concrete blocks falling from the sky.

Oh Jules! Well, you KNOW how sorry I am about all this. :( It's incredibly horrible. I only wish that the scathing reply I tried to make to that asshole had gone through, unfortunately I think because that one nasty reply he made towards the end got deleted it deleted my reply as it was being sent.

Major hugs...

ugh i am so sorry. its really unfortunate that steves family cannot see how their behavior is causing these problems and that *they* are the ones who have created this division. and it is unfortunate that your kids will have to suffer as a result.

It really won't be that much of a change for any of us. We never see or hear from them.

I don't think your request was unreasonable. Sorry that you had to deal with family drama because of your LJ.

I'm sorry! I can't imagine how Steve must be feeling, especially at Christmas...

It would hurt me a lot if my children were treated poorly by their grandparents. I can't even imagine why a grandparent would think thats okay?? My MIL shows favortism to my daughter over my son, but no where near the extreme that your MIL does, and it still gets me very upset!

Steve is really upset. He's annoyed that his family is this way.

You or Steve can call whenever you need to. What an awful turn of events. Sometimes what people do with free will makes me rethink the benefits.

*hugs to you and steve*
thats not right or fair, if they fail to see the division they are causing is their fault and not yours truely it will be their loss in the end. They seem like they will never see it that way and really they are cutting off their nose to spite their face. My heart breaks for you, steve, and the children. Although I know you wanted the favoritism to end, not at this cost. Thats terrible. What a horrible thing to do before the holidays. I am so sorry to hear that.

Btw, got your card today, its on my desk....thank you...still have yet to send mine.
