This has been a week from hell.

Monday hubby gets stopped for a minor traffic offense. Ends up staying 24 hours in county jail for something that was taken care of 9 years ago. ( A bounced check for emergency tire repair during our move in 2004. We never received notice due to a snafu with mail forwarding. As soon as we found out we paid within 10 minutes.) The tire company forgot to rescind the charges. He missed a day of work. Almost lost his state job. He almost got extradited 4 hours away. All he got was oops a clerical error.

Tuesday had to rescue hubby from jail an hour away. Then Murf's truck started dying. He needed hubbys mad skills in vehicle purchase. But hubby managed to get Murf a 40k GMC pickup for half off and payments for less than what Murf was offered on less equipped trucks.

Yesterday realized i needed to turn in important paperwork the day before not today. Yikes luckily when i explained my week they understood. But my 10 yo soon broke his foot at football practice. So my night was spent in the er. He has to sit out the first 6 weeks at least and see a specialist. His first game is Sunday he is very upset. First day of school is Monday. Also see a specialist that day.

Can't wait for this week to be over.

Between irritation and insomnia, sleep is not happening. It is not going to be a happy Sunday, so I think I will spend most of the day alone. I am sure my children can handle not seeing me for a few hours.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Had a 5 hr date tonight that went really well. Pretty cool guy but his living situation stinks right now. Guess we'll get to know each other really well until he gets his own place.

Interesting. I don't know how I feel about that. I guess you guys have all agreed to.that boundary. It just seems kind of odd to.have that one.

It served a purpose at a point in time. Today is a somewhat better day. The temper has cooled and he suggested it was probably past time to renegotiate boundaries (which it is-but that's a different story).

Keeping in mind-we were dealing with re-earning trust. Which is wholly different than agreeing together to open a relationship. So there were boundaries created for the purpose of giving time to re-earn trust etc.

Anyway-It was a shitty day dealing with hurt feelings and temper. But having slept on it, he's calmed down (he's also gone-been out of town for work for 6 weeks) from the initial "WTF" and at a "ok, this is a minor detail and we should renegotiate".

Anyway-I relaly only came back to reply-because I liked your response. Primarily because I know perfectly well it's a boundary that in and of itself is confusing to most people here-and yet you were so respectful about it being an agreement we made for reasons unknown.

I wanted to say thank you-because it's so easy on here for people to jump into "that's fucking ridiculous and unfair" and some things are-it's true. But sometimes, unfair is exactly what is needed to allow the consequences of a different "unfair" to heal.

So anyway-thank you for your kindness. It really did touch my heart.
