Girlfriend, how do you do it? OHMYWORD!! I guess it is OHSOOBVIOUS as to why you had to take so much control in your household! You were criticized (maybe even by me), you were called every name in the book (and then some), still you kept plugging along. You go girl!!
I have no idea what goes on in your private life (nor do I want to), but from what the media tells us – your life is a mess right now. Emphasis on right now. Things will get better. It may be a while, from the way the hubs is carrying on. It really has no where to go but up!! Of course, there are really SO many things that could be worse. Everyone is healthy – that’s a big plus.
I wish I could smack your hubby – it would make me feel better. I mean seriously, WHAT IS THAT MAN THINKING? Someday, the children will read all of these stories and they will have their own stories – he will be feeling a bit sheepish then (one could only hope).
I would think that no matter what people thought of you in the past, they see the heart of the matter – the children. It’s too bad hubs doesn’t. I certainly pray that he comes to his senses and can put his children ahead of himself. In all honesty though, i have my doubts. I suspect you do too.
BTW, the camping thing – how cute were the little lights you hung up! If you really put the tents up all by yourself? then more power to you girl! I would have crammed everyone into one tent rather than do it twice.
So, all this to say – I hate it for you! I really do. I can’t imagine facing all that junk in front of the whole world.
Keep the faith!!
