My kids' dad pulled a fast one and did not show up at our meeting place to take them on his scheduled weekend last Friday. When I called him he simply stated he did not want them for the weekend because he had plans and then he hung up on me. He later texted me and told me he did it on purpose out of spite because I opened a child support case against him. In the last month he has sent me hate texts and phone calls telling me how much I am ruining his life and he keeps badgering me to close the case. I refuse. difficult child 1 texted him asking why he did not show up. He lied to her and told her he "forgot" he was supposed to take them. He promised he would take them this weekend and do something "fun." I have no idea what he is going to pull tonight. I hope it is not the same as last weekend. I really really really need the break. The kids hate going there and I feel guilty about sending them, but I really count on those breaks every now and then. I have had the kids three weekends in a row and they have been on their worst behavior. I don't know how much more I can take. difficult child 2 and his hyperness have sent my anxiety skyrocketing these last few weeks. He has been antagonizing his sister like crazy and she has been retaliating by throwing objects at him, hitting him, kicking him, smothering him with blankets, and so on. He keeps going back for more. difficult child 1 has been more obstinate than usual. A few days ago I tried to get her to put her face cream on for her acne and she responded by grabbing me, pushing me, and hitting me. Her attitude is at it's worst. My anxiety is in overdrive, and my next psychiatrist appointment isn't until next month. I need an adjustment with my medications but for now I'm just dealing with it the best I can. I really hope ex plays nice this weekend and takes both kids. We are moving next weekend and I have packing all day tomorrow. My boyfriend is taking me to dinner and drinks later that night. I need to recoup and unwind. Please send good thoughts my way. I have already said a prayer and I hope it works.
