And by God it's OK that:
I post when I'm happy and the kids have had a great day and are happy as well. Not that the last two decades haven't had good times mixed in, but I've dealt with enough crap and struggled in a hell hole of depression and horrid self-confidence that I am entitled to declaring 'I have had an absolutely fantabulous day and feel like a queen!!' once in a while. If you don't like it, don't read it!! And don't kill my happy buzz by spreading that I'm slamming someone who would CERTAINLY deserve it...even though I'm not and I wouldn't! I could go on about being in my shoes and all that jazz, but I won't.
My son is outside playing in the snow with his full-body, footie PJs under his snow clothes. I don't care. He's bundled. He's warm. He's out of my hair and burning energy!!
That I stick up for myself and what I KNOW to be true, even if that pisses off a someone related.
That I give the soon-to-be ex the option to stop at the house and do his laundry on days I will be gone and he has the kids. No, I absolutely WILL NOT DO his laundry, but he can do it himself here and save the $$ and fuss of laundromat- why not?? These would be times I'm not home anyway, the kids can do things they want with friends here also. Crazy offer maybe, but who cares? Helps him and benefits kids which helps me!
I painted my nails blue with yellow stripes for the dance studio spirit week!! WHEEEEEE!!!
There are upcoming plans to do something fun with the kids, and I can't wait!! (SSSHHHH- secret, kids don't know of anything planned- will be total surprise! ...yes, their dad knows and is ok with it )
