I am the Grinch-ette

I love Christmas. I have just had a bit too much alone time.

Jimmy is supportive, don't get me wrong. But, Jimmy has his own house and his own 2 kids to take care of. I am tired of all my responsibilities. To be relieved of them every other weekend, like a normal divorced parent, would be wonderful. To have support from family with no hesitation or strings attached, would be wonderful.

I am tired of wrapping alone, stuffing stockings alone, making kids go to bed alone, doing school projects alone. Worse, I am tired of not having something to look forward to in the near future, such as every other weekend alone. Or once a month alone. Even though I am engaged, I still feel I need to spend some alone time with my fiancee. This is why marriages go wrong: the couple loses touch with each other. Dang, mine has not even started yet!

Today, I am the Grinch-ette. I am NOT happy.

Where is your Ex??? Why doesn't he pick up the kids sometimes???I know it must be hard for you to get some time together as adults in your new relationship.Most of the time me and my husband are more like two friends than married people because we have very little time together sometimes.That is what has kept our relationship so strong.When we have had times where our relationship is in a low spot,we use our friendship to pull us out.We have never had any serious problems in our 9 years together!Our friendship has kept us together.

My ex has moved on to "greener pastures" if you will.

He is remarried with a 1 year old baby girl. They want a son, so he has someone to "teach baseball to."

Bone head. That's all I can say. It was an abusive marriage, every type of abuse there is. So, I guess I should thank my lucky stars I'm out of it.

Janine - you just drop your darling kids off here with Auntie Krista! They can play air hockey, play games, clean my toilets. Call me and arrange a time. Ali can also be available.

Perhaps it is just he holidays that have you feeling grinchy. Wouldn't hurt to pay or bribe soeone to stay with them for a couple hours while you go do something for yourself - a massage, pedicure, new hair cut???


This is the coolest dog ever!
