Our Pre-Anniversary Weekend...
Overall the weekend was pretty good. Friday night Susan and I went to see Wedding Crashers. It was a freaking hilarious movie! Vince Vaughn is the man! We laughed our asses off, and as evident in the picture in my last post we can afford to loose some ass. Afterwards, around 10pm, we went to a new Asian grill and had a nice late dinner and a couple drinks. I was craving some sushi, but they didn’t offer it. Still, it was very good. The theater and surrounding stores were packed solid. I had to park nearly a mile away. I think the congestion problem had something to do with the first night showing of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the Harry Potter party that was going on at Barnes and Noble. The whole place was swarming with kids and their parents. It was close to midnight when we got home and we were both exhausted and ready for bed. We decided to put off the lovin’ till Saturday.
Saturday morning Susan had to get up early to go work a radio remote at a business in Birmingham. I got up around 9 and dressed and then met her there to meet some of the folks she works with. Afterwards we drove up to a shopping center and did a little window shopping, then stopped at Calypso Joe’s for nacho’s and an adult beverage or two. Once we got home she decided a little nap would be in order, and I agreed. We both stripped naked and got in bed ready for a nice early afternoon nap, but I think we both had other plans in mind. As I lay there on my back she began to stroke my chest. As her hand worked it’s way further down my stomach I began to obviously respond in the natural way. She reached down, wrapped her hand around my hard cock, looked up at me and asked, “You want to fuck?” Uh, gee….let me think a minute….
I won’t bore you with the details, but I will say that it was very, very hot! Something about a little afternoon delight that makes for a wonderful day. Things were pretty wonderful till around five in the afternoon….
My kids had been staying with their Mother since last Tuesday. When she first picked them up I asked her how long she planned on having them and she told me it would be for a while, like ten days. Of course I didn’t believe that. She barley ever keeps them more than a weekend because things come up like having to study, or getting her boobs done, etc. So around Saturday I get a call from my daughter T. She called on behalf of FA because she was wanting to know when I was going to pick them up. I told T that her mother could bring them home either Sunday evening or Monday morning in time for T’s orthodontist appointment. She relayed the information to her Mother and then I heard FA in the back ground yelling hysterically, “NO, no, no, No!!”, at the top of her lungs. I calmly told T that I would be there in twenty minutes and to get her and her brothers crap packed.
A few minutes later, once I was on the road, FA called and apologized. She said she was just stressed out because T had lost her goggles and she was wanting to take the kids swimming. Then suddenly she remembered it was our anniversary weekend and she said, “No, don’t come now…I’ll bring them to you tomorrow.” I told her I was already on the interstate headed her way, that I would be there soon, and then hung up.
When I got to her door the kids came out with their belongings and FA never even showed her face. I guess it was a good thing because I was ready to rip her a new one. I really intended to point out what a sorry excuse for a human being she is, and what a lousy Mother. My only concern was getting the kids in the car before I let loose. She saved me the trouble by cowering inside her apartment. About a mile from FA’s place I looked over and noticed that T looked like she was about to cry. I asked her what was wrong and she kept shaking her head, but the tears began to come. I pulled off the road under an overpass and told her to tell me what had her so upset. She looked at me with tears in her eyes and said, “It scares me when Mom yells like that.” God, it kills me to see what this woman is doing to my daughter. Before I get the comments about not allowing her to see them, let me say again that I would do it if I could. Even if I had the money to fight her in court my attorney has already told me that no judge in Shelby County would refuse her visitation. It would take a big fight and a lot more damaging actions on her part to get a supervised visitation ruling. I have to take hope in the fact that she doesn’t want to see them all that much. She is so wrapped up in her own life, she hardly ever has time for the kids. Hopefully her absence from the kids will do them more good than harm. I am just thankful that Susan and I can be their full time influence. If the situation was reversed and she was the one with primary custody I would be going crazy trying to spend as much time and money as I could with them.
So T and I talked all the way back to the house about her Mother, our family and other related topics. I told her that FA loved them very much, but she just had her own life to deal with at the moment. I told her that with Susan and I, she and L had a stable family and that we had love and were always here for each other. I promised her that things would get better with her mom someday, but in the meanwhile we would all be okay. Needless to say it wasn’t an easy conversation.
That evening we watched a movie and hung out with the kids talking about what they wanted for their up coming birthdays. T will be twelve on August 1st and is so hoping for a cell phone. Personally Susan and I think it is crazy to get a cell phone for a twelve year old, but we will probably do it anyway. I’d like to kick the ass of whatever parent it was at T’s school who first bought their youngun a damn cell phone. It’s insane I tell you!
Yesterday Susan and I left the kids home for a couple hours and went shopping for birthday presents. We found some cool purple crap for T’s newly redecorated bedroom at Bed Bath and Beyond. You know, lamps, shoe hanging thing, bean bags, alarm clock, etc. We also stopped in at Cingular to see what kind of phones and plans they had. I guess that’s what their “family plans” are there for. Sunday evening we had a wonderful “pre anniversary” meal at the table, (we usually eat in the livingroom in front of the television) followed by an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. So much for the Atkin’s Diet!! Last night Susan, T and I watched Coach Carter on DVD while L watched SpongeBob up in his room. There was no more sex, unfortunately, but there was some quality family time! So it was all good…
