Just hanging around tonight

Not too much to say today. The house is pretty well under control, the kids are all in bed, and I'm just hanging out! I don't do this often, mainly because I don't like to have too much spare time... but I just couldn't come up with anything I wanted to do tonight. Not in the mood for ironing, sewing, reading, watching TV, or much of anything for that matter.

Tomorrow will be a busy day for us. Need to pop over to Walmart in the morning, which will be interesting, it's getting to be a struggle getting out the door with the kids these days. Then we will be having lunch with my SIL-R, and her husband E. I haven't seen them in a very long time, I'm thinking it was last September! R and I have been close since shortly after he and I got married. When he first told me he was leaving (before I knew about her), R said that no matter what happened, she wanted to stay friends. E said on the phone this evening, that he and R still, and always will, regard me as family. That is a truly wonderful thing, as I would feel strange not having R in my life anymore.

After lunch, I will be dropping the boys off at a friends house, so that I can attend a counseling session. I am looking forward to this session, as I am hoping that I can start to learn how to let him go... to be able to take move on from this mess. I am also hoping to talk about the boys behavior, which isn't awful, but it has changed in the last month or so. I'm just thankful that since he moved, they have settled down a bit.

Then, after that, they boys get to spend the night at Grandma's house. Which they are very much looking forward to! I shall be going to a nice Martini bar with a friend. I'm just looking for the chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy an evening out... and if I'm lucky, forget about my craptacular life for a little while. Now don't worry, I won't be drinking too much. I will be picking the boys up just before 9am on Saturday, so I need to stay relatively sober to accomplish that feat.

Then the rest of the weekend will be spent hanging around with my boys. I have a fair bit of yard work to catch up on now that the sun is back, which they enjoy helping me with. Considering our coming week is looking rather full again, it will be nice to just hang out this weekend.

  1. It sounds like you have a busy day planned today. I just wanted to say that I am so glad your SIL and her husband are still going to be there for you- you shouldn't have to lose friends or family because *he* decides family isn't enough anymore.

    Good luck with your counseling, I hope it helps. I know it has helped The Husband and I tremendously lately.
