My daughter and I went to hear my son's marching band in concert last night. I always love this concert...it's loud, and informal, and the kids seem to have a blast. When we walked in the door, my daughter started looking for my ex. We stood there a moment, and I spyed him up toward the top of the gymnasium. My daughter waved and then said..."Oh, he brought his girlfriend". Think that you could have picked my jaw up off of the floor. It seems that my kids have known about this "girlfriend" for some time...since a month or so after we moved out. I guess he asked them if they would mind if he had a girlfriend. He said "She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside". Ok...I know this sounds like royal bitch mode but here goes. Gag me!!! This is a man who hasn't paid me a dime to help support his children! Who not only has abandoned them financially, but emotionally as well. If my snooping is correct, she is 34 to his 50, and has 3 children! No wonder he doesn't have money or time for his own kids. ....Ok, am done whining now. .....In the end, I never did get a good look at her face, but I can tell you that her ass is a lot bigger than mine. (Ok, I had to throw that in.) .....In all honesty, I find the whole thing oddly fascinating...and it certainly answers a few outstanding questions. He is free to see whom he pleases. In the end, this has just been one of those weeks in which I swear I am living in the twilight zone. My daughter is facing some very serious issues of her own that require my time, my love, my patience, and my money...and at the one event of the week where I thought I could relax a little and just enjoy, my ex decides to "come out". If I find out that woman is living in my house, I believe she will receive an eviction notice from my attorney...or a notice of rent due. As for the child support, I have my reasons for waiting, but that too can and WILL happen. ......Like I said, it's been quite a week. I am a single parent...in most ways, I always have been. Of late, it's been rough, but I know in my heart that the kids never told me to spare my feelings. They say they are "ok with it", then so am I. Just one of those things I thought a few of you could relate to...thanks for reading.

Through Gods grace we got to spend Christmas Eve together as a "blended family" and I made peace with his gf.Then he had a stroke Christmas morning and passed away today. My poor stepdaughter has been in ICU every day and my heart hurts for her and all of my children.
