I know I haven't posted lately, but I've been pretty busy trying to stay sane. Is that even possible? I'm beginning to think not! So, in the never ending saga that is my divorced life, my ex decides to send me a text requesting my help today. It drives me nuts that I am expected to bend over backwards to help them out, but if I need something from them, I am interfering with their life. *SIGH* So, I have decided to be the bigger person and help them tonight. Granted the request wasn't daunting or anything...they were requesting to pick Blake up past the time that I would have dropped him off at their house this evening. But, we are supposed to be going by our divorce papers, per their request. Hence, I never know which way is up anymore when it comes to their bi-polar mood swings. Tomorrow I will somehow be the devil in their eyes once again. It's exhausting. Divorce sucks. The worst part is that the next time we get into a fight, they will throw this back at me, saying that they did ME the favor. Again, divorce sucks! Especially for the kiddos.
On a brighter note, my other son always finds ways to make me laugh and smile. (Not that my oldest doesn't as well, but he is in the midst of teenage angst, so he frustrates the snot out of me these days!) Easter was so much fun for him...he enjoyed looking for eggs, even though they had nothing inside of them! He could have done that all day if we had let him! He didn't care about candy, but he sure loved the Hot Wheels and ball that he got! Oh, and running around grandma's yard! That is probably his favorite thing to do! He just loves grandma's house...and grandpa is most likely his best pal!
Two weekends before Easter we took Ethan to an Easter Egg hunt sponsored by Parks and Rec and Target. It was FREEZING cold! Once he figured out what he was supposed to do, there was no stopping him! He wanted to collect all the eggs! I remember when Blake was that age; he wanted nothing to do with the Easter Bunny- he was terrified of him. Ethan though, he thought the Easter Bunny was pretty cool. He kept looking up at the tall rabbit, smiling and thinking who knows what in that little mind of his. If and when I ever figure out how to post pics, I will post a pic that we did take of Ethan with the Easter bunny. I had to stand with him in order to get the picture, but we got one!
Ok, that is it for now....I have to get my bum to bed so I can be bright eyed and bushy tailed for the first grade class I am subbing for tomorrow! Until the next time, live well, laugh often and loudly, and make time to dance!
