You guys were right when you said not to believe what XWH wrote in his lecture to me-- how he and the Owife had spoken to the counselor and his parents and that they all agreed that I was attempting to turn the kids against him.
Huh. I guess that's why my XILs sent me a generous gift and a lovely note for my birthday, huh? Because I'm a venomous, awful witch who is trying desperately to hurt their son, they thought they'd show me by kindly wishing me a happy birthday!
I haven't met with the counselor yet since her schedule is really packed this month, but let's just say I'm far less anxious about it. I am not going to believe anything he ever intimates to me again. I'm not sure why I would considering that he has proven himself a liar time and again, but hopefully, this latest example will solidify that lesson in my mind.
I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. Mine was wonderful-- I had the kids the whole time, and we were surrounded by my loving family. I am so grateful for all of them, and even though my XWH likely doesn't realize it, he has no idea what he's lost, and I feel sorry for him. I also hope that he brought home any Thanksgiving leftovers in multiple Ziploc bags so that he can repurpose them for future use.
