Moving on .

I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

General Tao and Fat Men who eat badly!

What an eye opener I just had in front of me. XSU brought back Rebel Junior and the dog. He came into the house to ask me something about Rebel's drugs and we got that straight away pretty quickly.

It was then I noticed the difference in XSU. He's gotten fat! Big fat round face, big stomach. It appears that he has let himself go! The Fantasy Girlfriend is married and gone from his stalking sights, and so, no need to look young any longer, and Gut city. My thunder thighs giggle and jiggle in mirth.

If this isn't incentive to get me to act and shape up then I am pathetic. I feel pretty good now. Must get active.

In other news, the XSU offered to take my dog for a second weekend in a row. I had planned to take the little guy with me on my scrapbooking weekend, but he offered and I thought, "yes, I will take advantage of this offer." I mean, why wouldn't I? Seems the dog spends more time with him than his daughter does.

I learned that both weekends I was away RJ spent her evenings sleeping over at friends rather than at her father's place because he's too far from her friends. Good thing I don't pay support. So it was Buttons the dog and XSU spending quality time. RJ tells me he plays with the dog and enjoys having him around. Can't picture it myself, but it's cheaper than the dog sitter and I supply the dog chow. So it's a pretty easy gig. I was quite pleased I remembered to thank him for taking the dog when he showed up here this evening.

I have to work a full week this week. I haven't done that in some time I don't think. Luckily it's the Thanksgiving Weekend coming up after this, so this full week thing will be short lived.
Not sure what the plan will be for Turkey dinner this year. Don't know what the girls will want to do, but if I have to chose between having XSU in the house, or having Rebel's BF..... wait, I'm thinking. Yep... still thinking. PUL-EEEEESE don't make me choose. I guess it would come down to the BF if I want to have dinner with my daughter where as I *really* don't need to have the XSU around hovering in my kitchen, or worse, eating in my dining room. For a civilized human, he does have some astounding table manners, and both girls regularly tell me how they don't like eating meals with him. Seems this decision has been made.
Rebel is in a heavy programme at school so I'm not even sure she'll be up for turkey. See, these girls like the idea of turkey, but they're not really fans, but if I suggest something else, they don't like that idea either.

So, it could be Chinese food instead - how's this General Tao's chicken - with cranberry sauce.

Nothing wrong with a good old fashioned chinese food Thanksgiving!

oh, from the previous post. {walk}, good old fashioned walking, you have a lovely trail not far from your house, beautiful fall colours and your little dog would love it. Take your camera!
