Just another day.

Why is it that when you give a child a choice of where they want to go out to dinner, they always choose McDonalds?!! I'm so tired of that place and I don't like they're food.

Anyways. I realized today that I have a stalker. There is this guy that keeps sending me messages and for awhile I didn't send him any back. Then he made me feel a little bad so I did. Now he wont go away! I have to hide my online status!

Freaky people suck.

I got a phone call today from my ex. He was very polite. Asked how I was and all. I told him I was better than i've been in a long time. He asked me if I needed anything or if the kids did. I said thanks, but no. So he asked how I wanted to set up a child support schedule.

It really wasn't painful. When the conversation was over and I thought about I felt a little bad because I felt like I maybe might have been a little cool, but that's to be expected right?

I'm trying to decide what to do about christmas now and Thanksgiving. We always go to his mothers for both. Do I let the kids go or do I still go? I don't know how awkward that'll be.

If anyone has a suggestion for me, please do share. I don't know how this is done.

Dear MIsty,
If this is your first time divorsed during the holidays be prepared to go through pure hell with just about anything and everything. Just going down the road you will see other families(mom & dad) or you will see people like you and me single parents dropping their loved ones off at someone elses house. That sucks big time!!!!My first holiday without my children I laid motionless on the floor for 2 or 3 days waiting for the phone to ring and hear my babys voices. If hiyou have a close friend or family for sure go vist them ask if you can spend the nite. Don't do like I did and lay around in my sorrow and pain. It sucked but it was a choice I made. I should have went and spent time with friends and family. Misty Please I hope you don't make the same painfull decision I made my first holidays as a single parent. Just an added note if you like to read get something that you have always wanted to read but never had the time because of this whole situation go buy the book or magazine and sit down with a nice hot cup of spiced eggnog and think about tis note and that someone out ther who has never met you before holds you in his prayers Peace to you Misty Feel free to contact me and I will do my best to be their as a sounding board for you if needed.

I've read previously that you've an issue with your mother and her control issues, if you don't want to go there with your children you might want to consider having a new plan for a new you. I strongly suggest you hold out from going to your inlaws, even to save him some embarrasment. All of them, the children, and you need to understand there's a big change happening. You might find yourself uncomfortable or the object of open discussion as to the reasons and your status, be mindful of this incase you don't want to be in that situation. Your going with him there might send a message of hope to him, your kids, or your inlaws, even if there is none. Now, on the flipside, if you'd like to give it another try then go, but make sure he knows your intentions ahead of time so to save some grief or things popping up at the wrong time. Just be true to yourself and your kids, they deserve the truth as they can handle it... Not too much, not mixed signals. Either way I'm sure you'll get by well and I wish you the best. ^_^
