why do I get upset over this??
Edit----So, FI's sister will be in Jail until at least Feb. 11th. She can face up to 6 months from what I hear. Everything is all crazy. Anyway, the guy she lives with is the main payer for rent, and he is not on the lease, therefore he can be thrown out at anypoint in time. He still owes $300 for this month. The landlord is allowing him until this Friday to come up with the rest. However, whatever happens there is between him and the landlord. FMIL is taking it amoungest herself, to get FI and a friend to get all of her things out of the apartment. Now, FMIL and her husband have a storage unit and she says she has enough room for the kid's bunkbeds and toys. But doesn't have room for your basic house hold items. Entertianment stand,tv,bed, dressers, kitchen items, mic.,dishes, and the referg is her's as well.
Here's the kicker, now this has not come up yet and I'm afraid it's going to..
FI and I just moved, we have an efffiencey apartment it's just big enough for what we have and for us. We got a storage unit as well for the totes (for when we move again) and other boxes we will have for an actual apartment or house. It's just a small one and since only boxes and totes are being stored we have some room, not alot. I'm afraid someone is going to say something about us putting whatever we can in our unit. I will not be happy about this one bit. Bring it up, FI better say NO. I texted him tonight (he's at work) and told him I'm not willing to do this..
What would you do, if the children's things are being taken care of, and it's the mom's fault (FSIL) to begin with, would you help her keep her things? The kids are ok and taken care of and their things are in the clear.
When FI messed up a few years ago and went to jail, he lost EVERYTHING, no one in his family or ex wife, helped him keep anything. His mom didn't step up and say about putting his things in storage or anything like that. He came home from jail, stayed with his parents for a year, had a job within the week of being home and just now got on his feet. We were with my parents for a little while. But he started over with NOTHING...
My thought is as long as the kids are good and their things are ok and safe. Then I wouldn't worry about her things, she brought this on herself.
Am I wrong thinking like this, especially with the way she treats FI and me. I'm paying for the unit. She'll never pay us back. As far as we're concern she'll be flipping out when she knows we're watching her son..
Thanks for any input.
