We hosted a summer party for my husband’s office.  The work wife and her family were among those in attendance.   I couldn’t have been more ignored.  Her kids were awful.   My husband defended the situation.   Whereas a similar situation occurred with children at a family reunion (my side) & he was all over it because he couldn’t believe how horrible these kids behaved.  He talked about her kids constantly to our kids.  I finally had enough & constantly reminded our kids of how bad they were.  I’m not winning mom of the year for that one. 

Two days later he leaves for work on this business trip & hardly says goodbye to me.  In fact I basically chase him out the door.  When just prior to the party I thought we were headed in the right direction. 

I want to cry.
