Tonight's presentation: Drama

Color me slightly (okay, more than slightly) annoyed. The ex called last week, said he'd like to see the kids this weekend. Fine. I don't make any plans for the weekend, partly because of him and partly because mom (my 'built-in' babysitter)isn't going to be home. This also means that its just going to be me dealing with the ex. I'll go into that another time, but its not the most comfortable space for me.
He calls again during the week to change plans. He won't be over Saturday, after all. (Color me shocked .. /end sarcasm). But, he'll be over early afternoon on Sunday. That works for me. Saturday, I have a friend over to get the car working properly so I can (finally) get tabs on it. I leave today clear...which is frustrating. I would have enjoyed having my friend over to just spend some time with...but the drama of going through accusations just isn't worth it. Oh, the ex wouldn't <i>say</i> anything, but I'd get the looks. And then there's the process of cornering me later...
At any rate, he called this morning. Said that he just finished laundry, and even though he'd gotten a good night's sleep last night, his body is telling him that he needs more. Okay, by morning, I mean it was probably around noon or one. At this point, I just <i>know</i>. We've begun the backing out. He says he'll "try" to be here between three and four.
Three comes around...no ex. Four passes by..still no ex. I decide to fix dinner, rather than wait. Five thirty rolls around...finally get a phone call. Surprise of all surprises..he's not going to make it after all. He woke up later than expected. Of course, he can't ask for a ride or antyhing. I mean,I know the bus system sucks on Sundays...but, still.
Its a damn good thing I didn't say anything to the kids...and that they're too young to really care at this point. Idiot.
