Tonight I sit here writing in full view. Angry Guy has treated himself to a night or two at a hotel. Really he should have checked with me. I have a better idea of where the best rates are. Too soon??? Believe me I am not taking this lightly but I have to say that Angry guy has been so awful the past few days that the house is much more relaxed tonight. Oh, the kids are sad but Kitty has been talking to them and being as comforting as I can be. This is not the first time Kitty has been through this so I know the right way and the wrong way to talk to the kids. Oh Kitty knows not to say anything negative about Angry Guy …and I won’t. Before he left Angry Guy told the kids to call his cell to talk to him. I of course told them to feel free. The thing is that he works so much they are used to him not being around.
I don’t want the kids to be in pain. I don’t want them to suffer for my selfish acts. I will continue to take the high road even if he doesn’t. I will let him have the furniture he wants, whatever he may want from the house. I even told him he could take the house if he can afford it. I think that’s what makes him so angry. He knows I can do it without him and yet he can’t manage the house without me. The next few weeks and months are going to be tough. I know that. I am not taking any of this lightly. But I have to say it feels nice to finally be set free.
