The old saying that “we can’t pick our relatives” also includes step children as well.  I inherited 5 when I married the Captain and none were interested in getting to know me and hearing about my life.  If they had read, My First Love, on my blog, they would have known many things about my life and the person I had become.

Through some misplaced anger, I was recently told that my marriage to the Captain was “tedious” because I was his third wife. Apparently, some of those step children have also read my blog and found it offensive and have accused me of “airing the family dirty laundry in public”.  My answer to that is if reading about yourself makes you angry then clean up your act.

I was a widow for 5 years before I met the Captain and he changed my life for the better. We see that some family members have no experience with marriage or long -term relationships.  Having someone who completes your life and who is your best friend as well is something to cherish.

So kids, if you don’t like my blog, then don’t read it because I will continue to write about my life experiences good, bad or ugly.
