Is he off his rocker? Signs I am recovering!

The SA-NPD-EX-Idiot calls today and asks if I want to join him and our DD's for Easter dinner.
WTF???
He thinks that him and I are going to sit down at a table and enjoy a nice ham dinner?

I politely told him that I appreciate the offer but I would not be able to attend.

He proceeds to tell me that he invited me to come over for Easter because it "was the right thing to do".

I was puzzled for a few seconds about his motive then it came to me....He wants everyone to think he is a good guy! He invited his ex-wife for Easter because he didn't want her to be alone.

In reality I will have a lovely breakfast including candy with my girls. They will be gone for the afternoon so I can work on cleaning my new house. I will eat peeps and not have to cook dinner for them.

This looks pretty good to me!
This feels like recovery.

I don't think you can ask any more from yourself than that statement.

What a great attitude and fantastic response!

Seems to me the right thing to do would have been to not cheat on your spouse, but what do I know. It's a little late to worry about that now!

The answer is yes, he is off his rocker, but you knew that.

Congrats on the house! It's going to be a beautiful day tomorrow, perfect for opening all of the windows and filling your new house with fresh air. Enjoy!

P.S.
As the girls prepared to head to their Dad's for Easter dinner the oldest asks "Did Dad really invite you dinner?"
I told her that he had and I thanked him, but I thought it might be awkward. There was a group daughter rolling of eyes.

I asked what they thought. "Oh yeah Mom that would be weird!".

So...my hunch was right. He wanted to look like the good guy.

Backfire!
It pays to say as little as possible.
Hard lesson to learn but so valuable.

It's still all about him, isn't it.

...spandex idiot...

Love how you handled the 'kind' request but I really love the mental image of a bunch of girls simultaneously rolling their eyes.
