Now accepting applications...............

Guh.. what is with men!! This post is regarding Mr. Could-have-been. I do need to get a new name for him.. accepting recommendations... any like.. Mr. Sperm-Donor or Mr. AssHole ..

Anyway... My lovely mama wanted to take my sis and i to Galena for a weekend. Of course it ended up being that the only weekend that would work for everyone was one of my kids weekends. I didn't think he'd agree to take them since he is an ass about having them at all! But to my surprise he said Okay.. to which i replied "what did you say" he told me that he would want to do something sometime too and would hope that i would help him out so yes he would take them. I was ecstatic... thrilled.... it has been so long since the three of us reconnected..

So Fred and Freida were gone this weekend at his house. And i get a call on my cell phone from him asking when I want him to bring the kids home. And of course i say... 6 pm.. that's always what time you drop them off. And then he starts telling me that hes been trying to call me all day cause he wanted to drop them off early. I wasn't home (which i told him) I was at my dads all day swimming and relaxing (that i didn't tell him). Well what is it you need to do I ask.. to which the response is i just have some things to do and they've been asking for you since like noon................................... Now wait a minute....... He only has them 4 days every two weeks....... They are saying no such thing..... he just knows (from the past) that this fake excuse will always get me to say okay. But you know what... Mommy needs a time out too sometimes.... and damn it he is never with them.. he can see them! So i said well I'm not home so it'll have to be six. Which yes was the truth. And he says (in an ignorant tone) "Come on its all ready after 3:30!!!!" I then reply... "you are right.. so I'll see you in about two hours!" and hung up.. hehehehehehehe. So i know that wasn't necessary but seriously... he never sees them and he gave up all rights to me as a babysitter when he put his paws on other women.

So he brings them home tonight and says... um yea I'm not going to be able to take the kids that weekend... WHAT??!!? i say.. (my mom had just told me not even 5 minutes before that she made the reservations since he said he would take them three days before) "Yea (he says) Someone asked me to do something so I'm going to do that instead.... Oh and btw.. on Thurs (the next time he gets the kids for only one night) I'm not going to get them till after 6 or so instead of Noon like usual cause i have something to do.

Seriously.. you know the song Goodbye Earl?? I'm thinking about buying some beans!!! Okay maybee not totally seriously... but it sounds good.

What a butt! I wonder if he realizes that by 'punishing' you, he is punishing the kids...and himself for giving up precious time with them.

I think I like the name Asshole. No Mr. in front because he doesn't deserve it. That's terrible and like Gypsy Queen says, in the end, he's not really punishing you. He's not only punishing your kids but himself too. What an ass!

How frustrating for you. And I don't think I've heard a name worthy of him yet.
