I wasn't painshopping.... Oldest DS came over to vent. XH showed up Labor Day weekend with no warning, schmoopie in tow. (XH now lives in another state, 9 hours away and is engaged.)

Schmoopie had a dream that he was cheating on her, and woke up screaming at him.

She had a dream that XH was a woman, so kept checking his "package" to make sure he was a he.

According to DS, XH was an emotional vampire and drained the life blood from DS.

Yes, we really do reap what we sow, the chickens come home to roost; and karma is a boomerang that comes back with more force than it was launched with.

I never badmouthed my X to my daughter. I just told her a limited version of the truth. Nobody really needs to dwell on their father doing what he did to me. But I also knew that he would set the dumpster on fire all by himself. He forged his reputation with his own hands. I didn't really need to say bad things about him.

Regarding my current situation, the very best punishment my husband will get, aside from losing me as his lackey and office manager, will be what happens to him at the hands of the OW. He made it clear that the only thing standing between their union and their happiness was me. Now, I am stepping out. I don't want to stand in the way of the happiness of the man that I devoted the past 17 or 18 years to.

I've got popcorn and a front row seat. Let the games begin.

The words "be careful what you wish for" should resonate here. Some people always want to chase the next big thing. All that behavior reveals is what they lack in themselves. Sooner or later, the newness wanes, and they become discontent. The most we can hope for is the satisfaction that those they thoughtlessly disregard go on to find the happiness and fulfillment they deserve.
