The first month of living in my own place is coming to an end. It has been surreal. Not really felt like living on my own either. I have had at least one of the kids most nights, and both of them about a quarter of the time. Plus I have been over at the house for a handful of nights, including a weekend when Kelly was in Vancouver.
I have the place rented for October, but not sure what is happening after that. There has been no change in Kelly's attitude towards reconciliation. I expect that when the kids are back in school next month, there will be new pressures to change the dynamics.
I haven't told my parents about the situation yet. They (especially my mom) don't like Kelly anyway, so I don't need to hear "I told you so". If we ever get back together, I don't want my mom referring to "The summer you left Paul" if she and Kelly ever talk.
The kids and I are planning to spend a quiet weekend at my place. I got them both fishing rods and we can use the dinghy they have here to hang out on the lake.
Not sure what Kelly is doing but at this point, I don't want to know.
