Long night.   I need to head home,  but I’m just still sitting in my car.   I should really leave before I fall asleep in my car.  It’s Wednesday now too,  so tagging gpoyw while I’m at it.

Morning so far…

…530…I walk into oldest’s room to make sure she’s getting ready for the 6:08 bus pick up.  She’s in too much pain again to go to school.  She went to the doctor yesterday dealing with this pain.  He decided the vomiting and nausea is just from her pain level alone, but apparently this means she’s “handling” the pain fine, because he didn’t bother even prescribing some of the non-narcotic pain meds that I suggested that he thought would help her…..he suggested another specialist first.  But I’m not a lenient mom, so I’m giving her the third degree this morning, finding out if she truly can not get her ass to school.  According to her, she’s just too sick still, worse than yesterday. I go back to bed to catch a few more zzzzs…

…boy runs into my room about 7am freaking out.  ”There’s no one at the bus stop!  I missed the bus!”

Well, your bus comes at 7:30, so I think you are ok and you haven’t had breakfast yet. I get up to middle child in the bathroom, so he can’t get in there to finish getting ready.  Apparently her early morning drama club started today, because she leaves for school an hour after him with the lovely 830 bus pick up.

While all this is happening, BF is dealing with his ex and last minute changes to see his daughter.  His ex continuously changes everything at the last minute, but expects him to give her over a week’s notice, even if it’s just taking his daughter to dinner.  Apparently she wants him to have his daughter the next three days. After she took his time from him last week and this up coming weekend.  We think it’s all just mind games.  She knows his place is much further and inconvenient for him to get his daughter back and forth to school each day and get to work, but he’ll do it—-just to see his daughter.  It’s just the last minute change of plans and wondering what she is doing or up to. 

I finally get breakfast in the kids and get them out of the door and think I’m squared for the morning. In comes the boy running through the door about the time his bus is supposed to be getting in——apparently he forgot to do some homework and he was coming inside to do homework instead of catching the bus.  OH, HELL NO!  You need to get back to that bus stop and not miss that bus.  This almost becomes a knock down drag out whiney situation.  I finally get him back to the bus.  I’m sure the Moms out there, who I have never seen before are all ready to gossip about me after seeing my stern Mom, but sorry.  You are in charge of your homework, not me.  I’ll help when you ask and if I can, but it’s not my work and you aren’t missing the bus for it and getting a special trip to school over it either and you better not give me any lip or attitude as well. 

Laundry started and needing to vacuum and some other chores and that is way too busy of a morning so far.  And this concludes yet another look into my not-so-interesting life.

Two workouts today and a beer for dessert.   I went to a new zumba class today.   I liked it pretty well.   I think my favorite part of going to a new class is what the instructor says to me.   Today it was obvious by feet positions and hand movements that she was a dancer.   She came and asked if I was a dancer or if I taught after the class.   I  tried jazzersize for the first time today….. I could not stay in class,  dance classes with no rhythm I just cannot handle.   I don’t know if all their classes are like that or if it was just that instructor,  but the class was packed.  

I went on a bike ride with bf in the evening, after it cooled down.   He fixed my bike and spiffied it up with some paint and we had a great time on the ride.   Now to find some more areas nearby to ride,  but not right now.   Now it’s really time to enjoy my beer.

Mugshot Monday.  In the doctor’s office with a sick kid.  So you know that means selfie time.  This is my last day before work starts back up for me,  it’s been good overall.

background

So back in the day when I met BF and hear that his ex left him. He tells the story of how he left from work one day and came home no wife and kid is gone, the well furnished house is almost bare as well as the bank accounts.  He had gotten word from his closest friends to get home, because they had just walked into the empty place.

 I of course immediately assume that something had to be very wrong in their relationship.  And you know me leaving a very unhealthy marriage, I have no interest in moving forward at all with obvious problems.

I try and find the best way of figuring things out before hand, trying to avoid to getting into an obviously not so great situation. So I ask things like what did you fight about—-his answer—-nothing, he always said if they at least fought, he might have had something to pin it all on. So of course I know disconnected sex life or lack of sex can be a huge disconnect in a relationship—-so ask about how things were in the bedroom——apparently sex life was still on fire and great (he still thinks that’s one reason she didn’t leave earlier—-or she’s stated that as well).  

After much more digging and finding out he had just thrown her a huge 40th surprise party event less than 10 days before she left.  They were planning on a trip to Italy soon.  They shopped together. As I continue on asking—-nothing is just jumping out as huge red flags.

 It’s obvious he is still deep in the grieving process of the loss of his future, the loss of his love, the loss of his daily interaction with his daughter.  I remember thinking at this time that I knew he was a great person and we could probably be pretty good friends and who could really have too few of truly good friends?  

By no means do I think about how crazy this woman might truly be, nor how I might be impacted at all by this in the future.  I did think about how manipulative, calculating and deceitful she had to be to have pulled that all off in one day without warning. I still thought there is no way this is a one sided situation while hearing the story the first time—-I always try and see as much of the full picture as I can not to judge too harshly on any side.  

The non-judgment side of me comes to realize she truly wasn’t happy——I get that.  Now reasons and actions caused by that——maybe not the most rational and lack one iota of kindness, but I get hoping for happiness. I’m still not grasping on how this might become something my life is dealing with like it currently does. 

I should state that as awful as I hate that everything BF went through and still goes through by having to deal with her because of child ties, I tell him—-I want to thank her for leaving——I wish it hadn’t been as drastic and painful as it was for him, but I have experienced levels of happiness I never thought possible due to how she severed that relationship.  I have also been completely shocked at how honestly cruel, evil, heartless, and selfish people can truly be through actions she continues to make.  

And now that is some background for venting to come.

The BF came over for a few minutes this weekend with his kid and dog.   Mostly so he could pack,  because his ex pulled the you can’t have your child this weekend because I say so,  then at the last second…. Well last minute…. he had about  30 minutes of a notification while he was at work of the ex saying come and get your daughter.   This is a norm.  I think she tries to trip him up….  Thinking he’ll make plans once he had been told he is kid free for the whole week prior,  and he can’t see his daughter.   I’m not sure her motive is,  but it’s very hard watching him have to go through the emotions of it all.   The kids all get along great still and they love the dog.  It was a great catching up with everyone this weekend for the few minutes. It was mostly a me weekend.   Well,  a part of my Saturday was at least.
