"Better not give in to it. It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.”
I know, I know. These stories are a dime a dozen on this Forum.
It has been planned for over a month for STBXH to take the kids to a local exhibition that they are really interested in. Now four days before the event, STBXH has a softball game during half the exhibition.
"The kids will be fine only seeing a few hours of it." Yeah right! DS12 is so excited that he signed up for the pre-event onsite campout. DD17 has actually shown excitement, which is unheard of in an 17yo girl. DS8 is the only one who might get bored.
But Dipshit's softball game is more important than his kids' activity. So I'll take the kids to the event. If Dipshit (hey new name for STBXH!) wants to show up for the second half, fine.
I knew on the list of his priorities that I fell somewhere below online porn and above yard work, but I thought at least the kids were more important to him.
