Oh, Missy I am sorry to hear about your Mom and Step-Dad. Please, take care of yourself too. Caregivers have to get some time to rest and get away even if it's just for a few hours. Can't have you getting exhausted and tired.

I am glad you like the cookbooks..I have one more I am working on, plus Josele and I are working on one together filled with information.

You take care...and ask your Mom for some recipes you can post. :)

It's very hard to purchase here. Even in a Cheese speciality shop. I have to order it and drive all the way over to Westwood to buy it.

I know how to make Quark cheese..you need to put that on your recipe blog.

Josele..you need to add to your cheesecake, What "quark cheese" is and how to make it. It's hard to get it in the western states, most folks won't know what it is or know how to make it. I think it's pretty easy to get in the South still though.

They will get it in the end... I can understand exactly why you went through what you did...I would have done the same and probably more...

She does now. I asked if she liked the gifts and she didn't know about them or that we had sent anything. It broke our hearts as there were Christmas's Jon nor I had a gift for each other. What money we had we would spend on Michaela.

And the only reason I know about the clothes from when she was small is one of her little friends, she grow up with, mother told me about it.

I have picture of what damage they did to our house..and a long list of repairs I personally paid for. Plus having to buy a new washer as they destroyed my washer and my vaccuum. And they wonder why I suffered from depression and was mad as hell at them both. I could go on and on..but it's all in the past and I really don't want to think about it.
My son and that *itch will pay for it all somehow. Karma will get the both!

Does your granddaughter realize what went on? That it wasn't you, that you were sending gifts? She is a total shista, and needs her ars kicked..........

I do too... I bought a lot of it to help Michael's mother when she was selling it. Didn't really need it as I had tons already. But being a Mom I wanted to help her and my stupid son.

I don't know how good a grandmother I am... I just find my son and ex DIL to mean and uncaring and very selfish. I could tell you stories of the crap both my son and ex daughter in law have pulled on me. Like I bought all Michael's clothing when she was young and my ex dil would give them away as gifts or sell them and buy Michaela used clothing. Or that I bought all Michael's baby furniture and never receive a Thank You!
Michael has never receive a piece of jewelry Jon and I bought her through the years as she got older or any of the clothing when she was in high school we would have the stores send her as Christmas gifts. When I found out she wasn't getting anything I stop sending anything. I still have a pair of diamond earings I bought her for her high school graduation. One day I will give them to her...but not until she has moved out of state and has a steady job.

Well, I know that Roses made sure she had lots of lessons. Dance, Skiing and swimming. And Michaela has made money teaching skiing and swimming..but I don't understand why she has to pay for all her own tuition at college when Michaela's parents are paying all the tuition for her sister.

I wish I had known some of the crap my EX DIL has put Michaela through. As small as my apartment is, I would have let her come live with me and go to college instead of putting herself $36K in debt with student loans.

When Michaela was little she always helped me in the kitchen...reranging my tupperware. LOL But we use to bake cookies all the time together.

There have been times Michaela has to work 5 part time jobs just to keep a roof over her head.

I am going to pray that I get enough money out of the lawsuit to help her and enough to keep to buy a house for me and Jon.

That no one ever taught her anything......my two youngest I couldn't tie them down long enough to teach them anything...everytime I would be going to do my baking ormaking the special goodies or things I felt they needed to know they were no where to be seen or they had to be somewhere...So now they have to learn by going on here and following my recipes and calling home...My eldest daughter she was home and around for me to teach to cook.
