Ok, this post will be a little bit of a rant. As you may remember, Hubby's ex has not brought the children for visitation 3 times. (that in itself is a whole other post). She hasn't returned any of his calls. It's like they all fell of the face of the earth. Except we have been communicating with the kids on the computer. But other than that, nothing. No commucation at all. Because all of our calls aren't returned.
Suddenly, Sunday afternoon, we get a call. I about fell over backwards, when I noticed it was HER number on the caller ID. She asks, can I drop the kids off for 5 days or so? What's up with that? I just want to scream.....We have a life too. We have plans we have to rearrange, jobs we need to deal with. Luckily I work mostly from home. So I was able to adjust work accordingly.
I have really tried to be so nice to this woman. I have sent her cards, I gave her a birthday gift. We gave the children money to buy her a mother's day present. I got her a Christmas gift. I am soooo trying.... But I think I am at the end of my rope. How much do I have to try? At what point do I just throw my hands up and well, give up? I hate giving up, but I hate being a doormat even worse.
