yeah, he finally called today and asked if he could "swing by and see parker" after his court hearing (re arrest for serving alcohol to a minor) and before work. nothing about lorenzo... i'm seriously thinking of making him a deal: less child support in trade for full custody of 'renz. i think he might just take me up on it.

Did you ask what he brought her back from Italy? I totally would've had to bite my tongue on that one.

WOW!

R. is even more of an UA than I could ever imagine!!

"My life is wonderful and I am so in love, but I am sorry to say, your friend Ben is... (add slander here). Oh, and I am just telling you because I don't want you to get hurt"



Why does he try so hard to hurt you so much?? You have been nothing but nice and patient with him for the past 9 months even though he deserved to have his *&* kicked a long time ago!

You are one cool woman, do you know that?
You handled it all beautifully!!

ben came over last night, handled himself well, and was honest with me as he always is. i already knew 99% of what r told me (and this pissed him off because he was trying to shock me), could tell what was b.s. and knew it had more to do with r than ben. ben just confirmed it...

i'm feeling a little more shocked this morning about what this live in girlfriend situation means for my kids. shocked and a bit sick.

It either means he'll want them less, since he'll be busy picking out swatches at Pottery Barn, or he'll suddenly want to start taking 'renzo because she thinks babies are cute.
Hopefully she'll love your kids, and be good to them, but I can't imagine how Parker will react to the new living situation. Has she met the gf? Has her therapist weighed in on how to handle something like this?

So, you're just supposed to accept all his indiscretions, but aren't allowed to move along at all? wow. I recommend having a mental evaluation for him part of the divorce proceedings..

Hey SS, I just realized our kids are almost exactly the same ages. Yet another reason to attend the Bay Area meet up! (sorry, OT)

she's not interested in kids. i suspect they're too messy for her. she's quite high maintenence. parker is confused because her grandparents have a big friendly black lab with the same name as r's girlfriend. (coincidence? : ) she hasn't gathered that he's not living with a dog. i don't know what the hell is going through their heads...

I have read your blog and many of your posts here about R. Before he left, you never showed any indication that you were unhappy but, to be honest, he now seems like a real psycho. He does and says horrible things to you and your kids. You obviously don't deserve this, and I'm sure from looking at your pictures and reading your posts that you are attractive to many other men. Do you feel that you witnessed R's cruelty before he left? Did this come as a total surprise?

i wasn't unhappy. i would've stayed married to him for the rest of my life, seems impossible now. i absolutely never would have suspected that r was capable of what he's done. no one that has known him would have ever suspected it. it was a complete shock. apparently regular sex (with someone else) can do a real number on a person. : it's like a new guy wearing an "r" suit.

i'm so beyond hurt and angry it isn't even funny. this was his last bit of leverage to use at the mediators because he knew that it was very important to me. now i have absolutely zero reason to compromise on anything. bad move...again.

i'm waiting to hear that they're expecting a baby of their own or something. honestly, nothing nothing nothing would surprise me at this point. :
