DC been away for just over a week and will be back on Sunday.

I've been ok and keeping busy but tonight DC skyped and I could hear xh and woman laughing and telling DC to hurry up as they were going to the pool party.

Just feel lonely, hurt and fucking jealous. Sorry for myself I suppose. sad

How long have you been apart?

Offred Mon 10-Aug-15 21:15:36

Yeah, that's shit but it will be over soon. Is it a fairly recent split?

Well fucking well done on being big enough to let them go. flowers

Nearly 2 years and I have been alright.

Tonight just made me curl up and die a bit. Again. Just sad and sore.

Alchemist Mon 10-Aug-15 21:19:07

But I haven't been so it confuses me when I have a blast like this.

Sounds hellish. flowers

Is DDog cuddly? Can you and he snuggle up on the sofa and watch something funny on TV to try and distract yourself a bit?

So sorry to hear you are feeling like this. Totally get where you are coming from. You don't want him, you just miss out on the family time and fun? Be kind to yourself

Offred Mon 10-Aug-15 21:21:39

That is pretty recent for stuff like this I think. Poor you sad

Sorry OP.

That's shit, really really shit. Try to make a mental list of all the disgusting things about him that she now has to deal with. Picking his arse? Crap in bed? Kids waking them up at stupid o clock?

Kudos to you for being the bigger person, fuck him, his OW and their grubby little life.

One thing about them tables, they sure do turn soon enough!

flowersbrewcake and maybe a wine for you.

Actually enjoy your space and freedom.
It's better than having this X with his drama.
Get DVDs for yourself, go shopping, enjoy your time.

Good luck, x

flowers My ex took them to Florida Disney with the (American) OW to meet their new 'uncle and cousins' 2 years after we split up. I went on my first Solos holiday to Greece and had a lovely time. Live your life well and remember she will never replace you. smile

Dogs are gorgeous loyal creatures.

Alchemist Mon 10-Aug-15 21:39:12

Thank you all. Am going for a long shower and then bed.

DDog is the best choice I've made in years smile.

So sorry that your exh and ow are basically evil turds. You are an amazing woman for dealing with this so graciously and letting your DC go on hols with them. All the best....since you're this cool, it won't be long until you meet someone as cool as you x
