No, it's not permanent. No, I have not been given the gift of R. No, my BS won't be in the house, but...

I'm taking my boys on the annual family vacation on Sunday, and my BS told me I can stay in the house for the weekend before.

Who ever thought such a major HIGH could come from something so simple as sleeping in your OWN HOME. Makes my realize how far I have fallen due to my A, but I'm not letting that take away how special this moment is. Sleeping under the same roof as my kids - yippee!!!

Now for the low. This is all possible because my BS pulled out of the annual holiday (months ago, right after DDay). She is taking a private holiday to an undisclosed location just for herself. So me going home is actually more about me babysitting to cover her vacation, but that won't spoil it in the least.

The win-win, she gets even more of the space she needs and I get to be with my kids. No, it's not a family, but it's not all bad.

Will we ever be on vacation together again? I pray and hope so but guess what, I honestly don't know if it will ever happen again. I've left that part in God's hands and trust he'll let me know what he decides!

Onto vacation...

Another positive post from you pfh. I'm glad that you can see this as a win, win and that you get to enjoy the comforts of home before your trip starts. Have a great holiday!

I understand what a big deal it is to sleep in your own house and wake up to your kids. I'm happy for you, enjoy it.

That's fantastic, glad you can take so many positives from it.

Enjoy your holiday!

I'm so happy for you. Enjoy your time with the kids. Just be in that moment. Have a wonderful vacation

Congratulations! It's nice when we can truly see the positives in the midst of all the negatives we have caused.

What a great opportunity to spend with your children. This sounds like a great time to give to your kids. Enjoy your holiday with them and make some new memories you all can share.

So me going home is actually more about me babysitting to cover her vacation

I'm having a hard time understanding why you would label this time with your children as babysitting. You're the father, not a babysitter. Are you having some resentment towards your wife because she doing something different this year?

Crying, I think PFH means his W views it as babysitting because ordinarily he wouldn't be in the family home. I presume it's sadness rather than resentment that she isn't coming with them on the holiday.
