Seems there is starting to be a pattern as to when I need to post. Every 2-3 days. Is that really how long things can remain calm or neutral for? Surely there must be a bigger aim than that.
My weekend has actually been good until Sunday night. Christmas activities done with the boys. And while they were with their dad I got things I needed to do around the house and some more Christmas shopping.
The boys came home last night (15 min early by his request) and I remember thinking good they are with me for 5 nights, I’ll be able to get some routine and also hopefully little contact with my X husband.
So I was wrong (that seems to be happening a lot recently).
The kids were badly behaved. I do understand how difficult this is for them and it always takes a few days to get back to a ‘normal’ routine. So they get some leeway the first night and it gradually gets less as the time passes.
But although the kids have been like this, I’m not feeling well and I’m tired. I’m surprisingly in quite a good mood.
Then I got a text from my X husband asking if we can have a 10min chat. In summary he wanted to change when he had the kids again – which I said no to since he chose the days in the first place. Then he told me that things that I was posting on social media were inappropriate – this was one of these quiz things that analyse your profile and comes up with 5 reasons to love me.
Then he thinks that since the last conversation ended badly we should chat to make it better. Well an hour later with me mainly listening to his feelings and him telling me how negative I am. I can say again I’ve had enough!
Really all I wanted was an early night. Then next thing I know it’s nearly 10pm and I’ve been listening to my X go on about his feelings for almost and hour (and it’s the 2nd call to him in the night).
I’ve been hearing a lot recently about karma, I hope there really is some truth to it.
