I am not really sure if this is weird or not. I belong to the same church as them, so I see them every week. But, as I said, this is the first card I received from them since the divorce call (my 4th birthday). Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the compliment. They don't support what she has done, but the OM is involved with them, because it is their daughter. Anyway, enough said...
You're an interesting species, an interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable is each other. - Contact

It's nice that they took the time to acknowledge your day.
I saw him, I could not unsee him. -StrongButBroken
There came a point when it was too painful to love him, so I stopped.
My first birthday after D-Day I didn't get a card from my x in laws (who I have known for 14 years and I have always sent THEM cards for absolutely every occasion - which they of course think their son sent).
Obviously it's my fault that their beloved son cheated on me and that I didn't forgive him.
I wonder where he gets his blameshifting traits from
Anyway... at least they appreciate you.
Hope you had a great birthday.
My WW asked me to watch the kids Sept 5 (her day and her birthday month). She usually goes on a cruise during that time. She will leave Thursday and come back on Sunday. The usually routine.
Well, what got me thinking was what is going to happen with the OC? A friend of mine who is FB friends with both of us, said her and the OM go out of town, A LOT. Pictures, check-ins. The whole weekend filled with them. She said at least every other month, sometimes once a month. (I had to tell her no more WW sightings. They piss me off. Why do people feel they need to tell me? But I digress, again). I have her first two kids...the 3rd child, I assume goes with WW mom's or the OM's mom.
I guess what I am saying is it brought me back to the birthday card from the in-laws (remember, 1st in 4 years). I think they are seeing what WW is doing with the OC, and might realize how much time I HAD to put in to cover her lifestyle when we were together.
I know, I will slap myself with a 2X4...SMACK!!! %#@&$% Ok, I will stop.
It is funny, whenever I think the weirdness has leveled off, this soon-2-B-over situation gives me one more thing to CSI to death.
