I had a small setback the other day when STBX mentioned that he would be in Europe again for work next month. I know that OW will be accompanying him. I always wanted to go along on his international trips, but I was always home with small children and no one to leave them with. We always said when the kids were a little older we could all go.
Well, obviously that will never happen now. Then, out of the blue my 5 year old dd asked if we could go to Paris one day. I thought about it and said, yes we can and we will! It probably won't happen for several years, but I'm going to open up a "Paris" savings account and just add small amounts to it monthly. I figure it's a goal that me and my kids can have together.
Who wants to be stuck in Europe with that lying douchebag anyway? I'd much rather experience it with my children.
