I found out from Ex's ex wife that he will be gone this weekend somewhere in the States with the skank. She is coming here but they are not staying and that's a relief that he won't try to intoduce her to the kids.
Today I get an email from him. It's his gmail account that he created about the time the affair started.
Let's just say that he has never sent me an email from that account to me that I can recall.
It was the name of the hotel in NJ that they are going to and a short sentence (in their language) that I can recognize as endearments.
He made the mistake because her first name is the same as mine (not Lola).
It threw me.
I am triggering I guess.
I hit reply and sent back to just her. "Is this for me or for you?"
It is the second time I have sent her an email. The first I sent from his email address just 3 days after Dday. All it said was WHORE in the subject line.
I know they will be together. I hope he will move to be with her and that she does not come here.
I don't care that he has moved on except that she may be exposed to my kids.
Why does it still hurt?

I'm sorry you're going through this.
I guess I feel like I should handle this better considering DDay was 2 years ago and he moved out over 18 months ago.
It's just another careless dumb ass move from the king of all dumb asses.
Right! That sums up all problems that he has inflicted on you over the years. He has chosen to make dumbass moves.
However, this is a hard thing to remember. I believe I was asking on here just yesterday why my STBXW would want to do such horrible things to me. We all need reminders.
And no, you should not be handling this better. You still have strong emotions, and they will still betray you once in a while. If you didn't get hurt, you wouldn't be the fabulous you. All we can do is try to bounce back quickly from each hurt, and hope it doesn't hurt as much next time.
I got a "Soooo, what are you wearing" SMS a few weeks after DD. In the same bubble as an sms intended for me.
Accident my arse. Did it hurt? It did. It all helped me gather the will and strength to detach.
((Lola2kids)) Last week out of the blue my 5 year old announces Daddy calls OWUmpteen Babe "but Babe is what he calls you" said like a question.
It took me right back to a very cute moment when she was very little and he called me honey - she corrected him "No - you honey, she babe".
I smiled all over.
And then I was sad.
I had to pretend I needed an urgent shower to hide my tears and grief. I was shocked that it impacted me so hard and so fast.
I'm not sad that he calls her babe. I'm sad for the memories I once shared with my (in my mind) dead husband. It just hurts.
The thing is - it should hurt. Its a very painful thing we're going through and of course we're going to be triggered from time to time.
Grieving and healing aren't straight lines. They are full of twists and turns but all generally in the same direction - towards healing.
((Lola2kids)) Sending you healing friend.
Looking for someone to cheat on wifestress with and remembering you will be conveniently nearby perhaps?
Yeah, it hurts because it's painful. That's why NC and detaching exist, because the painfulness knows no expiration date and, like most other toxins, lack of exposure is the best medicine.
