Twas the night before Christmas...

emoticon All is alright! My kids did move in with their father for about 2 months... They tried to make it work. They tried to be all that he expected but he was nothing they expected. They just wanted a real dad for once. But I was strong enough to let them go and let them know that I would love them no matter where there are! I was strong enough, wow. Never thought I'd say that. It was truly the most hurt I've ever experienced besides losing my mom to leukemia when I was 15. Waving good-bye to my younger two while they looked at me and tears rolled down my cheeks. I'll never forget that feeling. For weeks I prayed every chance I got and still do. And I tried to be "normal" whatever that means. Then I decided to start living again. Thanks to my oldest trying to get me out of the house and into life again. We went to her Aunts house for Monday night football and then was invited to Taco Tuesday at El Torito a few weeks later. That, my friends was a new beginning! I met the best man I ever knew there! I've know him for a long time but never "knew" him. I know him now and love everything about him! My kids moved back home and instead of their dad trying to understand and still act like he loves them, it's like he thinks he lost a game, instead of facing the fact that all he did was tell a pack of lies to get them there and then did nothing he promised. He did lose, because he never was involved with their growing up anyway. He had this golden opportunity and blew it big time. Couldn't keep one promise and treated them like Cinderella and they're his kids! But they're her step kids... So sad. But I'm happy they're home and loved more than ever! Yes, there are presents under the tree and yes, my world is so right, right now! I love my girls and I love my man! Who would've thunk it? Not me... So it just goes to show! Keep your faith! Believe in miracles and always, always believe in the power of prayer! I wish you all goodness and love and joy! Peace and happiness! It's a shame the judges in the Antelope Valley want my ex's attorney to get all the money instead of giving it to the kids. It's a shame our judicial system is such a joke, wasting money, time and mostly lives. But my kids see how it really is because they are old enough to understand it all now. It's a shame that I never made him fiscally responsible years ago instead of waiting for this circus act his attorney does every time they extend the court date. The attorney doesn't give a fig, more money in his pocket. Now who is really the stupid one. The idiot that keeps paying the attorney. Or the mom with the 3 kids that works and is just trying to provide a real life for her girls. The attorney told the judge that their moving back home is temporary. Perhaps he didn't understand. Perhaps his law degree doesn't help him get the human factor. The only thing temporary is his paycheck. So live and let live! Give everyone you love a hug and mean it! Be strong enough to let your kids learn the difficult lessons because in the long run they will appreciate the truth more than ever! No secrets, no lies... no kidding! It's a good life! Now I need to concentrate on fitting into my "skinny" jeans by spring! Yes I can, Yes I will! Be fabulous! Who are you not to be! Happy Holidays! Happy New Year! Wow... we made it!
