Okay, so I know I am going to sound like an asshole here - but I really need to get this off my chest. I have been married to Kevin for 8 yrs now - 8 yrs of hell!. We had a physical fight last night, and I know I should have called for intervention, but my daughter's 7th bithday party is on Saturday, and I am not going to be the one that ruins it for her - I don't want her birthday to be something that she associates the worst day of her life with. Granted it wasn't our "worst" fight, but I am walking around with physical indications of our alteraction. I am writing this, because I am concerned about tomorrow's meeting. I have a session with the lady from Domestic violence crisis center and I have every intention of lying if asked about the marks on my face. I just need to get by until Monday. I am going to check the girls and I into the shelter on Monday. I just can't do it before then for my kid's sake. I know not everyone will understand that, but I really can't let my daughter down. I'm just worried about what they are going to do tomorrow. This lady is trained in DV and I am afraid that if she knows I am lying it is going to be used against me and they will push the issue and inevitably take away my children. I absolutly hate this man and can no longer do this, but at the same time I don't want my daughter growing up thinking that it was somehow related to her.... Any advice would be helpful. What should I do?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
