Sept 2, 2010

The yo-yo effect continues. Tuesday night Kelly phoned me about 1 AM (I'm pretty sure she had been drinking) and said she couldn't get to sleep because she was so angry with me. I wasn't sure what she was talking about since we hadn't spoken all day. She said her life sucks because she doesn't have a job and I wouldn't understand because I have a career. She said her first husband had stopped her from working too. (Not true as far I I know because she had a baby not long after they were married and they divorced when he was only 2).

I tried to remind her that the decision to stay home with the kids when they were little was mutual and that for the past several (once Erin was in Grade 3) that I had encouraged her to get out and find something to do for her own interest. She got even angrier and said the kids hate her because I have been accusing her of sleeping with other men. I said I had done no such thing but she hung up. I tried to call back but she never answered. Needless to say, I was pretty tired yesterday morning.

Wednesday I took Taylor to his first football practice and brought him back to his mom. We played badminton with his mom then even hung out in the hot tub after. Nothing was mentioned about the last night phone call. Kelly asked me to pick up Erin from skating while she made dinner.

It was "normal  family" night. Kelly and I watched a movie together and I left at 11:30. She kissed me and asked me to come back again tonight.

I'm meeting with my counsellor tomorrow. I am so confused.

I think you are right about her calling when she was drinking which means she was not being rational but still might be some resentment. Problem is, she is resenting the wrong person.
