So my ex and I make a big effort to get along; we cooperate a lot in parenting our 3 children (ages 5-12). Particularly b/c they are involved in so many activities, we're both there a lot etc. On Sunday I needed to talk w/a woman w/whom I am organizing an upcoming fund raiser. She was talking about people she had lined up to help, and said "I don't know if my husband is going to help; he's being an ass about it." etc etc. She got kind of choked up, and said "I'm just so tired of him; I'm tired of having to do everything. I should probably talk to you about how you worked things out." And I said "What? What do you mean?" and she said "Well, I know that you two went through a hard time (and I don't know her very well, so I can only assume she heard this second hand) but worked it out." And I said "Sweetheart, we've been divorced for two years." And she said "Oh my God, I thought you had worked it all out and were back together! It seems like you get along." (We get along b/c we're not friggin married.) I felt so awful for her!

I'm frustrated right now. My ex wife has been out of my life for 1 1/2 years. We have been divorced for a year. She treated me like crap by leaving me without warning for her ex husband. Yet, I miss her. The days we were together weren't all bad. But, what should it matter anymore? I keep telling myself that God has a plan for my life and I should just be patient. I've done my best to move on....
