I didn't even need to count my chickens

The ex husband arrived after an hour delay and the kids were thrilled.  Last night was very mellow.  Today the kids went to school while the ex, Jack and I went to my mom and dad's house for the two grown men to replace a part on my van.  Then we had coffee and donuts.  Then the ex, Jack and I went grocery shopping where he laughed with the baby and I shopped in almost total peace.  Then the ex put gas in my car.

Home we went to start Taco Soup and back out to pick up big boys from school.  Then all boys stayed home while I went and rang the Salvation Army Red Kettle Bell for an hour in 17 degree weather.  It was awesome and I am not being sarcastic.  I am doing that again next year.

Now, I am sitting on the couch in flannel and all the big boys and the ex are laying in about eleventy hundred blackets on the floor watching movies.

I smell a rat.

Ok I am kidding.  It is just being a good visit.

    I'm so glad things are going well on this visit. Now that this stress has gone away we need to find out what's up with Jack & his speech. Things really do get better.

  2. Really glad to read that the visit with your ex is going well. Wonderful for both you and your boys.

    On another note, did you see that you now have two followers? Hooray for that! My beloved Forver Folding Laundry and us. You are converting the masses. :)
