She told my DH she wasn't going to do anything until the new year, but apparently she hates her stb-exH so much, she's in the process of moving out. They are trying to work out who gets what and such, so she's coming to stay with us. Her kids are staying at the house and they are going to switch off being there. I feel bad for her- she loves her kids dearly and I know her husband does (but he is like the laziest parent and will just pawn them off on his parents). I told her that her kids can come stay here, we'll make it work.
