So, it was a bad morning to start with, puppies ( yes we got two) had left me presents to clean up... my son is still sick ( viral infection) now my dad and sis, sis has issues and my grandfather is once again in his own little world. I didnt get much done today..my best friend is in her own non talkative world and... to top it off... my kids dad called questioning me about my kids health visits ( he has insurance for them he gets the bills) and swears Im not telling him whats going on with them etc! Really? All these years I attempt one way or another to tell him even when their baby teeth fell out and all of a sudden because hes married with a new kid he is almighty ..who he feels deserves a father of the year award! So I told him hes making me feel real bad and he says he can provide financially hes got a better job now then he did here and I got silent. He got silent.. he was all" um..." I asked him" what do you want me to say" and in a little sad type voice he said " nothing" I guess he wanted me to say I was proud of him or happy for him but how can I be after everything he has put our kids, me and others thru? Now, I am being civil and polite but I am not his best friend nor do I really want to speak more than I have to with him. So I guess I was being a meany. Plus... he calls when the kids are in bed and neither wanted to talk with him when I asked them..( they weren't asleep yet) I know I complain.. just needed to vent again... plus.I am wrong? I just cant force myself to be so happy around him or on the phone.. I do smile and encourage the kids to see him and talk with him and act like nothing is wrong... I do a good job I think! So its long and Im sorry.. but instead of making a new thread, do you all have New Years Eve /New Years Day dinner? We never have.. just curious if you all do. I been thinking to start having them..
