After 4 years of no-shows to DD's events, XH has finally decided to attend one. Praise the lord! Let the heavens open up so we can rejoice!

But of course he is bringing wifetress and new baby. The ridiculous part is that his parents are accompanying DD and I to the event because he decided to attend last minute.

I am going to look my best, hold my head up high, be pleasant, and enjoy my DD's event. I am going to be the proud mamma bear and act like the lady that I am. I will not let those two fools intimidate me or make me feel like less than just because I am un-partnered.

I am ready! So bring it on!

Good job, FirstLoveGone. We can't beat them at their own level, but out-classing them couldn't be easier!

It will be so obvious to onlookers that you are the class act.

When you put shoe polish on those bitch boots they are rather elegant attire for a lady!

Thanks ladies and gentleman!

This turn of events would have put me into a tailspin a year ago. But I'm taking it all in stride. FTG and the wh*re he rode in on!

The only thing I am not looking forward to is the post-event reception. I really don't want to stand there any make chit-chat with XH, wifetress, and the XILs(who are accompanying DD and I to the event as well as leaving with us). I'll have to somehow occupy myself while they play happy family. Unfortunately, I won't know anyone at the reception.

Oh, you don't talk to them. You do the indirect cut. The Cut Direct would be far more satisfying, but given that your DD will be there and you don't want to hurt her, the indirect cut will do just fine.

They are, of course, persons that you vaguely know, are not interested in getting to know better, so you smile vaguely and answer the same way. "That's nice" should be your standard reply keep it short and then move away. If wifetress has anything to say, I would look right though her and act as if I were deaf. And ask your DD to introduce you to teammates that she likes. Then introduce yourself to the parents and strike up a conversation. I'm not saying that if they notice FWH and wifetress hovering around and ask about them, that you should actually say something to the effect that "Oh, that's my former husband and his mistress turned wife," in an amused voice, but if something like that slipped out, well, truth is tough at times. (((hugs)))

While you're sitting there looking amazing ~ keep this quote in mind....

"When another woman steals your man, the best revenge is to let her keep him"

Thanks for the advice skan and Jayne.

I'll report back to you all tomorrow!

Wish me luck!

Well that was anti-climactic!

Wifey and baby were no-shows. Apparently the baby is sick so wifey stayed home with the baby.

I basically pretended that XH wasn't there and enjoyed the recital.

Till next time!

Glad that it went well!
