Nanna, Camps, and Potential Flies in the Ointment

I’m very pleased to report that the visit with my mother-in-law has been uneventful and pleasant. She has been helpful and also very non-judging of us. The first night she was here, she thanked me for marrying Russell. I think she was afraid that I would be “divorcing” her too, which I assured her isn’t the case. She’s not always my favorite person, but she is Chloe’s grandmother. She has asked me several times if I think “we’ll find our way back to each other” over these next three years of co-existing. I told her that I think that ship has sailed. I love Russell, but I’m not in love with him anymore. We’ve both changed and again…he’s GAY. Russell told her I was pissed she hadn’t called and she actually addressed it by telling me the other night that she just didn’t know what to say. I suppose I understand that. I don’t think anyone in that family has ever gotten divorced…they just die.
In other news, Russell and I are “discussing” what to do with Chloe this summer. My job is no longer cost effective. Any camps that I would send her to this summer would actually be MORE money than what I would make during the time that she would be there. I’m applying for some wait jobs so that I can do that while I’m in school and I’m hoping one of those comes through sooner than later. This is my life…announce I no longer want to be married, but I want you to live with me and continue to financially support me for 3 years while I’m in school, and oh btw I’m quitting my job…lovely. I’m sure he’s sitting around going WTF? I’m shocked that he’s letting me get away with this…guilt is a powerful thing I suppose. (I don’t want to give the impression that I’m a gold digging whore…Russell doesn’t have enough money for me to be.) We talked about possibly sending Chloe home for the summer to my family, but 2 months is too long for her to be gone from her Mama and my family isn’t exactly waving the normal flag. At some point, I should probably do a posting on my crazy Southern family…my parents make my situation look almost pedestrian.
Yesterday I heard from cute ex-Army boy that moved back to Texas in January. It seems he’s moving back in the summer…yes! That was some super fun, hot, o-m-g sex. Speaking of which, I get the keys to our new house on Thursday. Owen is coming over to break in the new place that morning…so many new rooms, so many possibilities. I just hope Gavin and Owen don’t know each other, which given what they both do for a living/fun is pretty impossible on this island. I guess I should say I hope Gavin doesn’t sit in his backyard and watch for Owen to come over on my days off. This would totally freak Owen out. I suppose its back to the van if that happens.

  1. Update: I decided to do a little investigative cyber stalking tonight...I'm pretty sure Owen and Gavin know each other. Owen and Gavin's ex wife are FB friends...hmmmm...what to do? Do I tell Owen about Gavin?? I don't want to set Owen up to get caught, but I also don't want him to be all super paranoid either.

  2. Ummm, sounds like all sorts of potential trouble. I'd definitely give Owen the heads up. And watch your back girl LOL! If those two women figure it out, you can come live with me!

  3. LOL, Gavin's ex wife is not the crazy ex gf that he's with now...his ex wife is apparently a little nuts too, but it's NOT the same crazy. Owen is FB friends with the ex wfie, not the ex gf/current gf/wtfever. What a tangled web this North Shore is...gawd!
