|J. was the lead in a play tonight. She was *so cute* and did *so well* and is just such a great kid. She tried so hard and practiced so much, and deserved her (first) night in the spotlight.
The Ex came, with his wife. They got here early and called to say that they wanted to come get the girls. I said they couldn't have j., b/c she had to eat and get to the play, and they couldn't take her, but I let them have e. They came inside, and saw the girls' room. My parents were here. It was awkward, to say the least. They (parents) decided to leave and go get me some Allagash Tripel. Mmmm. Allagash Tripel.
The Ex and his wife were both very civil, and his wife even got a little cozier and chattier with me.
I wonder if it makes her worry or ask hersef questions? As she sees that I have no horns and I am not the devil ... why, then, am I no longer with her husband?
BECAUSE HE'S AN ASS!! RUN, WOMAN, RUN!! BEFORE YOU HAVE CHILDREN WITH HIM!!
And he keeps insisting on growing his hair, and keeping a goatee, and he looks kinda (or really) bad.
I still find no flaws with his wife (other than her taste in men).
The play went great, and then my parents and my kids and my beloved and i went out for our "bday dinner" - although we chose a restaurant we knew my parents would be happy with, not one that we would have gone to on our own. The food wasn't bad, though.
Came home, ate cake (yummy carrot cake with cream cheese frosting made my mom), ushered kids to bed, and now am in bed, tired as hell for 10:56 p.m. I'm usually fine to continue for some time. But parents and ex's and plays just suck the life out of me.
So I'm going to bed. Soon. Very soon.
With my new ear plugs. Which may very well be the things that save my marriage before it starts ;)
