Happy Pi Day everyone! That will conclude my thoughts on the statistical anomaly that occurred today. I celebrated by cleaning house, doing laundry, and even got Sloane to participate by picking up her bedroom. We know a good opportunity like anyone else when it comes to a blowout Pi party. IT FINALLY STOPPED RAINING this afternoon! A quick trip downtown today and I haven’t seen the river up this much in a long time. Even saw two guys fishing while sitting on a park bench and with normal river levels there would be no way in hell they could even attempt it. Even got to get in on a two mile walk. Come on Spring I’ve missed you terribly!
It’s Sloane’s monthly “grandparent” night with mom, and I turned her over this afternoon so she gets a full evening of no rules and spoiling. After running errands and such, I returned home and I started putting laundry away. This is where things get “tough” for me. In the process of cleaning her room today Sloane laid out all of the pictures that she has of her mother and I on her bed.
After the shit that spawn of Satan put me through I have no desire to rekindle that flame, but Sloane has it in her head that she can “match” make us back together. Knowing my daughter, the way I do, she did this intentionally. Her heart is the last one I would ever want to break but I don’t know what to say to her tomorrow when she comes back home. I would prefer a sit-down with the ex on this matter, but I know that isn’t going to happen. So, I have to go it alone without hurting my daughter’s feelings.
Co-parenting is impossible these days! I asked our daughter how softball practice went Thursday and come to find out her mother left at 7:00 pm with her (practice runs until 7:30), reason being it was getting late! I would find some truth to this argument if she was staying with me on Thursday night, after showers and wind down time etc… She has to get up early when she is with me because of my work schedule. When she is at the nursing home she gets to sleep until it is time for school though. I’m just sick of the bullshit! I’m sick of being the only one looking out for my daughter’s social activities, I’m just sick period!
My daughter deserves the best! Her parents divorced so what in the grand scheme of life. I just want to co-exist. If her mother feels uncomfortable in a social setting with our daughter, that is on her. I’ve proven I’m a damn good father and I should get her 50/50 during the school year. She’s proven she’s a piss poor mother who only thinks of herself.
I want to help my daughter out with her homework (something she doesn’t do, thanks to my former mother in law). I don’t get that opportunity because of the custody arrangement. I get to walk on eggshells in regards to anything that has to do with my daughter because if I say one cross word to the ex she will take me back to court. Common sense long checked out with her, plus she is hampering me financially now and that is the reason I’m taking her back to court. I’m sick of court, I’m sick of her, and I just want to see my daughter 50/50.
I had to rant tonight!
