It's the most wonderful time
Of the yeeeeeeeearrrrr....
DW's ex was poised to take SKids to Colorado for vacation. He has long promised to take them somewhere for vacation, but always backed out or something... This year, was to be skiing. Woohooooo!
La Nina had other plans. Drought, warm temps, no skiing. Looks like the vacay is off.
DW says, "That's ok! If he doesn't have anything for you, we can all go visit family three states away!" Looks like DW and I might be bringing the SKids along on another road trip that was going to be her and me. She didn't mention it to me to gauge my feelings about it.
I'm really let down about how, AGAIN, she just blurts it out there and includes/invites other people without any discussion. It's also as if, were I to bring up her excluding me from the decisions, she'll get defensive and say stuff like, "These are GREAT kids. I just don't want them to have to sit around, bored out of their minds on their electronics at their dad's place for two weeks." I'm thinking that's all they do with us, anyway, except when it's time to eat and they whine about what is on the menu - or they only halfway listen to conversations and intentionally interrupt just to get some attention - or they bicker - and basically act like early teens. I need a vacation, too... and putting up with constant interruptions during movie night, having to listen to constant annoying UNNECESSARY noises while trying to relax, and all that... No, I need a vacation. I've earned it. Even if I just lay around the house and count the bumps on the ceiling in peace, I deserve that.
How 'bout y'all?
