This year I was going to do our usual Thanksgiving blowout celebration but I finally decided that’s not what I want. Guys, this year hasn’t been very good to me. We have all been through a lot and I just don’t feel into it. I had to call several family members and friends and Just Say No. It was hard but I feel better about the decision. This year I am going to do a small gathering. Very small. Under 10 people I’m hoping. I had all kinds of plans but the closer it was getting the more anxious I was getting. I just don’t want to put myself through it. I’m allowed to take a year off, right? Especially a bad year. Everyone was understanding, sort of. The few people who will be coming know that I’m not going all out. I’m still getting it catered and I will still do the vegan dishes but I’m not going to feed half of North America this year. I said no. It’s for my own sanity.
I’m happy to say that I am finally dating someone. Her name is Jesse. She’s a peach. I really like her. She’s sweet and funny. She’s closer to my own age (Just in case I was going to get those kind of comments Lol) and we get along great. She has not met my kids yet. I’m thinking after Thanksgiving some time. She has only seen photos of them. She hasn’t been to my house yet. It’s all new and I’m having a great time.
My ex-wife is not happy to hear about it. Her sister texted me a screenshot of what she had to say about it. I don’t care. That’s why she’s the EX WIFE, not the wife. I have never enquired or care to know anything about her dating life or even her life. I don’t know if her sister felt like I needed to know her reaction or not. I’m not even sure how the sister found out. I don’t care. I just deleted it and moved on.
Things are good. The kids are great. The boys love school. They are enjoying all kinds of coloring activities and they love playing the group games. I think I made a great decision about putting them in school early. They needed a jump start and I am happy it worked out for us. My little Peace is going to marry every boy she sees. She loves them all. Ask me again when she starts dating how cute I think that is.
Everything is fine. Boring, perfect. Life is finally calm and I’m enjoying just being with my kids.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Safe travels!
