Drama at the family home!

So I was good until Sunday when I let some drama derail me.  So mad at myself but what can I do.  I didn't want to blog about it but whatever, I always said I would be honest in my logs so I might as well fess up.

Background
On friday my friend Jay asked if him and his boys could come over.  I said sure we could take them to the park after church  and I was making a pot roast.  Then on Sunday in the early am he said could they come over sooner because Athena(baby momma) thought that the pool would interfere with nap time.  I said well the pool doesn't open until noon but we can either nap before or after the pool and that I didn't know he was going to bring Athena...they have been broken up since April(he lived with us for 2 months).  So I am a little stressed by then because they haven't lived with each other in over 5 months and I am just imagining the drama.  Well sure enough he pulls up but the kids and Athena aren't with him.  He said she wanted to drive seperate (again surprised because we live north of town about an hour from where they all live in the south end of town) She texts him that she is running late and needs money for gas...he is a little exasperated because he offered to drive.  Mind you we all played hooky from church so that we could meet at 10:00 but she doesn't get there until noon.

She gets to the house and to me, she looks messed up--on drugs---not normal.  The kids are filthy..no shoes on and hungry and thirsty..she pays no attention to them once we get there kind of like it was up to Jay.  I suggest putting shoes on the little one because he is running around on the pavement outside and its hot(90 degrees) She informs me he doesn't have shoes because they hurt his feet(I am screaming bullcrap in my head but say nothing) I suggest we go inside then.  She refuses to sit down, I offer her a drink she makes some snide comments to Jay that is she smiling enough for him and again I ignore her petty comments...but REALLY.
Then she says "are we going to the pool, because I told the boys we were and they are excited"  I said ok, I wasn't sure if they needed a nap..no she wants to go now but says she doesn't have a suit...ok I say no biggee we are just going to the kiddie pool the water is only up to knees.  Then she says the boys don't have suits...I open my mouth this time and say "Really, you tell the boys you are all going swimming but you don't bring any suits"  She explodes and grabs boys running out the house saying how I don't understand the hell she has been going thru and she is tired and exhausted(which is bull again because jay offered to bring them up here and give her a break for the afternoon and she denied him, and he offered tomorrow(monday) and she turned that down.) So they go scream outside at each other for awhile and she drives away.

We all proceed to go out for ice cream after that--Johnny was wondering whats up and my hubby missed it all because he went to have a cigarette and didn't know she left.  I also did not exercise Sunday..spent the rest of the day consoling Jay.

Wish I could just erase yesterday.  Drama, bad food choices and no exercise.  Back on track today

Seriously...what is wrong with some people? Doesn't she realize the emotional crap that her behavior puts her kids through? What a piece of trash! OK..done with that....with all that being said, life happens. We can't always "stay on plan" but that's alright. It happens...we move on. It was more important for you to be there for your friend. :)

That sounds so frustrating...and especially for you to have to be in the middle of it. Argh. I hope he appreciates you!

I bet the shoes do hurt their feet - she sounds like the kind of mom that would be jamming their little toes into shoes two sizes too small. :(

What a beast. I hope she does take your friend to court. If she's messed up as badly as you say, they would most likely rule in his favor.
