Been a busy week so far. Sunday, Chris and I drove back to my home town for a quick visit with my family and to pick up the truck we bought. When my sister found out I was coming, the first thing she asked was could I cook when I got there. Her daughter was begging for some Chicken & dumplins… so I told her to boil the chickens and I would fix it when I got there. It turned out amazing as usual and most everyone went back for 2nds.
One of my sister’s in-laws is having a baby and she asked me if I could make a diaper cake for her to take to the shower. She knows I’m more of the crafty one, so I thought I would give it a shot. It turned out quite cute. I didn’t have long to work on it and was only working with what she had so I was a little limited, but it still was cute. Here’s a photo of it.
Monday I took off so I could spend some time with the fam before Chris and I had to come back home. I got to meet my oldest nephew for lunch, I can’t believe how much he has grown and matured. He is a jr now and is just growing up to fast for my liking 🙂 But I am super proud of the young man he has become. I then picked up my youngest nephew from school and got to hear about his day and how things are going in school and with his friends. He’s 10 and has a heart the size of Tx. He is so thoughtful and considerate of other people, just a great kid. Later my niece called me to come and pick her up from the high school after practice. She is the trainer for the volleyball and basketball teams. She’s a soph and she’s growing up too fast also. She and I did some talking over the time I was there and she told me about a boy she was crushing on who graduated last year… OH MY. I saw some of the texts they were sending and he seems to be a sweet guy… so far. He asked her on a date and to homecoming, but she said she was already planning to go with a girlfriend of hers. She also told me she doesn’t like going out with guys and being alone with them, it makes her uncomfortable. (Good answer!!) She would rather friends or other people be around. I told her she should just let him know she was going to be at the bonfire this week and he should make an appearance and say hello. I just want her to be careful whatever she decides. These are all the things I miss out on being away from home. I miss my mom and gpa and sister and friends, but I miss my sister’s kiddos the most. So overall it was a GREAT visit, but as always too short.
So Monday night after Chris and I got back home, I logged onto my Facebook account and saw the friend request icon lit up, when I clicked to find out who had friend requested me, it was my ex-husband. I gasped. Chris who was on the couch beside me said WHAT, I said oh my gosh, that’s so weird. I told him my ex-husband friend requested me. He said okay – sooo? I said that’s weird, I haven’t seen or spoken to him in about 5 years. Chris wasn’t worried about it, but I thought it was so strange. I had hooked his brother up with one of my friends back in the day and after we divorced she told me that my ex (Tommy) had gotten another DWI and was suppose to go to jail. Well I haven’t talked to Susan in a couple of years so I never knew what happened. I ended up looking up the local county and his name and found out that he had been sentenced to prison. So I didn’t accept him, I just sent a message and say hello stranger, how’s life treating you. He later responded and said I wouldn’t believe it if he told me, so I of course inquired as if I didn’t know already and he said he had gotten another DWI and went to jail for 4 years. He said he just got back on Monday and was living at his parents. I have to admit it made me feel good that the day he got back he went looking me up. I knew I was hard to forget 😛 HAHA
So we exchanged a few emails back and forth yesterday. A friend at work asked me if I still had feelings. I told her that I didn’t think so, but had to admit I would like him to know how much my life has improved and how well I am doing now and what he has missed out on. I still have the dog we got together when we were married and so we talked about him some. He mentioned the woman he was with before he went to jail, bailed on him after a year in and so they were done. He said she wanted to get back together and he said that he told her he couldn’t trust her to ever be in a relationship with her again. Well I hadn’t mentioned anything about Chris at this point and he said he would like to give me a call on Sun night if that was okay. Today I emailed him about Chris and my life with Chris, he hasn’t responded since I sent that email this morning. So I’m not sure if he is wanting to be friends or what. It’s kinda surreal. I didn’t think I felt anything, but I have to admit, I have checked my email a dozen times or so since sending my last email to see if he has responded. I feel anxious, I want to read his reply already. I would never leave Chris for Tommy. Chris is my now and my future and Tommy lost out on his opportunity years ago. But yes, I loved Tommy dearly. I waited for him and was sure of everything when we married. I just wasn’t prepared for him to turn into a different person after the I Do’s. Not a horrible person, just a person I didn’t know. Anyway…
Chris is out of school this week before the next qtr starts up next week and it just so happens a friend of mine had extra tickets to the Ranger’s game today at 1 pm. Chris is a
fan borderline obsessed fan. He loves his sports. So I got in contact with my friend who said she would meet Chris at 3rd base before the game. So of course he has to send me a picture of the great seat he is in and tell me he wishes I was there.
I’m so jealous. I’m stuck here at work, working hard as you can tell 🙂 haha No really I am… just taking a quick break to breathe. Well I’m gonna close for now, gotta check my email again 🙂 haha
What’s a girl to do?
