Anyway, here goes...
*Jackass and I learned that I could go bankrupt without affecting his business or 2 of the 3 houses. Although that sounds weird and upsetting, it's actually a good thing. Don't worry, I plan on nailing his ass in the alimony/child support area.
*I told Jackass that he should tell the girls that he is dating Vi, who I am just going to call Ho from now on. I told him I wouldn't throw him under the bus and tell them that it had been going on for over a year or two, just that he started after we moved out. I told him he could either take the offensive and tell them or the defensive when they found out themselves. News flash, they are not stupid!
*I have been going through lots of old pictures with all the moving and shuffling things from house to house. What were my mom and dad thinking 10 years ago? They had the biggest damn glasses! I know, another 10 years and I will look back and think that the glasses they have now are too small. I guess I have to start a box for each of the girls, because I don't really want to keep all those fun family vacation pictures with Jackass in them. It's very strange and surreal to look at them.
*In the past month, I have had Jackass' brother and his family over for dinner along with one of my best friends and her husband who was in our wedding and their kids. We have had a great time eating, drinking and laughing together. There is a part of me that feels badly for Jackass. Whenever we had people over, I would hope that he was in a "good" mood and not in one of his black "the world is out to get me" moods. So there was a lot of effort on my part to keep everything upbeat and happy. Now it is so much more relaxing to have people over. And that makes me feel bad for Jackass. I am better friends with his family and friends than he is.
Going to try to get out in this sunshine today even though it is still cchhhiiiillllllyyyyyy!
