Some days my ex-husband really irritates me!!!!
So, I was texting with a friend earlier, and she said something about her kid that signalled something in my head about my own kid, so I made a phone call to find out she has an appointment in a couple of weeks out of town. Not a big deal, but it would have been nice to have been told 9 months ago.
Anyways, I was entering her appointment into schedule, and since the appointment is next year, I asked my ex what his shift schedule was so that I could put that info in as well. I have to manage the day-to-day activities of 5 people, pets and there is rarely a day where something is not going on.
I then asked him if they have started doing “vacation picks” where he works. Depending on the length of time they work where he works, some people can get 5 weeks of time off, above regular holidays and a week everyone has in the summer and over Christmas....so they are only allowed to book 2 weeks at a time.
He told me he has, so since I was busy getting everything organized, I asked him to write the weeks down and let me know what he has planned; so I know if he will be in the country or not.
So, I get his list, and I know exactly what he has planned for 4 of the 5 weeks he has off,
Even though he told me he has no plans.
Fine. Good for you. Thank you for taking me into consideration when you planned your holidays. You are leaving for Europe for 4 of those 5 weeks (even though he said no plans, 2 weeks were booked over each of 2 persons birthdays, so as per the last 5 years, I know he is going to Europe)
He did not consult me, and considering I take care of the kids (2 disabled) 97.5% of the time and it is rare that I get to go on a holiday, go out for the night or a weekend unless I plan months in advance and beg, or get shown any thanks or appreciation from anyone for everything I do for them. OMG!!!!!
It must be nice to be able to just pack a suitcase and take off whenever you want.
Not consult your “family” or anything.
It is the least I expect from him because he is just going to take off and pi$$ away his visitation obligations like always (because be wishes he was never a parent in the first place). He expects me to take care of everything and forces me to be the responsible one while he wallows in a depression he will not get treated, blames everyone else in life aside from himself.
I am so incredibly upset with him. It was rude and selfish to not even think of me since there is no one else to take care of OUR kids if I’m not there but him.
