DS10 asked my husband if we were doing anything today, all he said was "I have plans, you three can do something."
He never said what he was doing, where he was going, or who he was going to be with. He just walks out and says nothing.
The weekend the kids were at my mother's he left Sunday morning. Again he never said where he was going, what he was doing, or who he was going to be with. All he mumbled was "I'll be back in a few." Three hours later he comes back.
I guess there's no real point to this thread. I just needed to get it off my chest. Sorry
I read back through your latest posts, it sounds like you are working on an exit plan. I admire you for taking the steps to protect yourself and the kids. Stay strong and enjoy the time he is out of the house.
Yes, I'm working on an exit plan. Plus I've been interviewing. So I'm hoping something comes up soon. I can't stand to be around him. Whenever he's home I'm in bed
Part of me wants to ask what he's doing and who has with, but I don't want to give him the satisfaction that what he does bothers me. That might sound juvenile...I don't know.
I'm going to takes the kids out and have fun.
Leaning towards leaving, no one deserves this pain.
When the kids are there, take them out with you. Find free or low cost activities to do with them.
In our area, we have a drive through safari, Space and Rocket Center, along with parks, shopping or whatever.
The point is, so what if he has plans. He is losing out with the kids. You on the other hand will not.
It hurts. I know it does but will get easier one day at a time, one foot before the other.
Remember, he is nothing.
Hugs to you and the kids!

We just came home. I took them to the park and we had a nice picnic. We brought some toys and played. Once it got too hot we left. I didn't want to go home so we walked around the mall and went into all the stores the kids like to go into but can't when he's around. So we were out all afternoon.
He's still not home.
He came home a little after 3. Then after dinner he decided to take us out for ice cream.
That's his pattern. He tries to buy affection. He'll ignore us or fight with the kids then buy them something. He came home with a movie for them. When they asked if they could watch it he said no and proceeded to tell them that they've been home watching TV all day. I told them to put it on.
