Just in case any of you were too worried to sleep, I got an answer to where Stanley was. He was fine. He said he didn’t get any of my texts. All good.
The Holidays are coming up.
Sorry. That was dripping with sarcasm.
Al is coming for Thanksgiving. Which is awesome and I am so excited. However, it means that I am out and out having a relationship and there is some concern from the Peanut Gallery that it is very soon after my divorce for me to be in a relationship.

I got a text from my brother (who lives in the same town and I haven’t seen since Mother’s Day) that said, and I quote (except my comments are in red):
I will view everything (meaning my choices) through the lens of your children. Their health and foundation is of most importance. Me being ok is dependent of their ability to thrive. I certainly have no bias against AL and would love for you to be fulfilled and happy. Making all of that work is your challenge but please commit to prioritizing them.
That’s right. Because I don’t prioritize them at all.
I’m doing the best I can to prioritize the kids and make them feel safe. It isn’t like I’m a stripper or bringing home different “uncles” for them to meet every other week.
It made me cry anyway.
Keep in mind, he has no idea what is going on in my life. I haven’t talked to him in 5 months.
I’m a good mother. The children are my absolute priority.
Screw people and their stupid opinions.
