The ex comes on little cat feet...

I feel so strong, so indifferent. And then the ex texts me and it catches me by quiet surprise that seeing his name on my phone sends a shot of pure anger and hatred through me, because I know it will be a terse message about picking up the kids, and not a heartfelt apology nor a message that he is lonely this new year's eve nor that he misses me or his old family life. He is just doing what I asked of him - NC unless it has to do with the kids. But I hate him for doing it tonight, being so silent like I asked him to be, but still being there in my head.

I totally understand. I feel the same way when my ex's name pops up on my phone in a text. Nothing but pure anger.

I changed his name to God's Gift to Women. Now I chuckle when he texts.

My dd (16) changed his name on her phone from 'Daddikins' to 'Cheating Asshole' .... makes me laugh every time I think of it. I hear you about the little cat feet ...sneaks up on you.

It's like we all have a Shining thing going on: I changed The Princess' name in my phone to "Cheating C**t". Some day I may be ready for something a little less hateful, but that day ain't here yet!

I hear you. For a long time, his name on my phone was a name family and I used to make fun of him (oddly, not has something else they enjoy calling him )

Now I've changed his name to his full, given name...but I sure HATE seeing it pop up on my phone.
