the relationship went south
He needed time to "think" and moved out lock, stock, and barrel with not a word of goodbye. Hard to understand myself, let alone trying to explain it to an 8- and 6-year old.
With the 6-year-old being autistic, sudden changes are devastating in his world. And I was left to deal with the fallout (Gee thanks!) So I have tried within my power to keep promises that were made to the kids . . . whether I felt like it or not.
They knew we had planned on going camping this summer -- reservations are made to camp the first weekend in June.
They knew we had planned on going to Branson in April, the reservations had already been made and charged -- and so we went. The reservations were in my name, on my credit card and I was NOT about to take that away from them.
We had planned on attending events at a local observatory and those are scheduled. We are scheduled and tickets are bought to go to an opening baseball game. And so life goes on. . . .
Right now, my goal is to focus on the kids and make sure they are okay . . . but don't worry I haven't forgotten to take care of myself either LOL While the car was in the shop, I walked to the nail salon and had a pedicure. Just this past week I had a 90-minute massage (heavenly!) I've had friends for dinner and numerous friends calling to check on me, we've had dinner with my daughter and spent the day today doing yardwork together.
Just keep us in your prayers please
