As most of you know, my ex wife has temper issues. When things don’t go as she planned, she will throw her toys out of the pram like a school girl. I put up with it for many years and have rather enjoyed, from a distance, her rows with her boyfriend.
Her life has been going down the pan, financially. Again, pardon my smirk! Sadly, as with every time, the minute that she is cornered she targets me. A couple of weeks ago it was yet another veiled threat demanding money, money that she is still not entitled too so I declined yet again.
Things have been quiet, bar a couple of situations that have made me uncomfortable which are simply not worth going in to on this blog. Today though, it was her turn to have the children for 3 nights. Why is this an issue well my daughter has not been happy at hers and chose today to kick off about it. Amazingly this caused a temper tantrum from the ex I have not seen in some time.
She was in the house about 90 seconds and in that short time I was accused of deliberately avoiding her birthday (this coming Friday), despite the fact we have been split up for 5 years and I always make sure she has cards from the kids and token gifts. Then she kicked off as my daughter wanting to go to her was my fault, and that it was my fault “probably because you are jealous of my relationship and want it to fail” I did well not to laugh at that point.
Then she stormed out, slammed my door harder than ever before, and left the kids and I stood there in disbelief. The woman really needs help.
I truly have no real idea why the anger was directed at me or the children, but I did love that quote. I love it as it demonstrates she still believes that somewhere I have some feelings for her. I do not, I have no interest in her life or who she is with. What I want is for her to disappear and that it is just then myself and the children.
The problem is, the children need their mother despite her displays of anger in front of them. That’s life sadly, sometimes you are stuck with people for the majority of it.
