Yep I went to see a movie and have dinner (not in that order) with my sister. Deliberately did not invite R, even though I knew he would want to go. Well that's what divorcing people do, right? They do thing separately. He sure wasn't going to make that break, so I am. Had a good time so there! When's the last time you sneaked off and did something? (evil grin)

I haven't been out by myself in ages. Even just out to lunch by myself. My daughter and I pretty much hang out together. It has probably been a year or so. In the Spring I may start doing things on my own occasionally again. I have S.A.D. so bad in the Winter that I am in my room most of the time. Pathetic 101.

Sorry, that made me laugh. I understand not wanting to go out when it's gray and gloomy and cold. Must be some indoor places you could go though. Perhaps the ice rink and you can fulfill my dream of becoming a skater for me? :D

It is laughable isn't it? If I tried to skate I would kill myself. I am so stove up it is scarey. Arthritis. But I can see me out on the skate floor. Comic relief.

So, what'd you see? The last time I did anything like that was a few days ago when I went grocery shopping by myself. Oh you meant something fun, didn't you? Well, in that case it was back in 2008. However, I didn't sneak out, I was kicked out. But I enjoyed a movie just the same. Happy mylotting!

Well, good for you! I think one reason he was having a hard time taking you seriously about the divorce was because you kept doing things together.

I don't sneak off.. but I'm not planning a divorce either. Though there's been once or twice when we got fighting pretty bad and I took off and ended up going to see a movie by myself just to calm down and give us some space. Last time we got in a big fight he was the one to take off.. and right after he left I decided to take the kids to the playground. Well he didn't go very far, I think he just went down to get gas or something. He got home and we weren't there and he thought for a minute maybe I'd finally left him, LOL. OH, and there was the time a few years ago we got in a big fight, and after he left for work I packed the kids up and went off to Ottawa for a weekend to see my friend. Turns out that was a dumb mistake. First of all, the kids went stir crazy, even though we did a lot of walking and sight seeing and stuff, they were just impossible to deal with all weekend by myself. Second, the minute he got home from work he and I started talking on the computer and got over the fight and I missed him, lol.

Sometimes you need to.. it's best to deal with the issue after you've cooled off for awhile.

You go, girl - glad you had a good time with your sis! I don't sneak off . . . no time to sneak off even if I wanted to! During the weekends, if time allows, my hubby will watch the kids and I go off shopping (not frivolous shopping, but always for stuff we need - but not groceries, so it's kinda fun). I haven't had a date night with hubby though . . . as baby boy still nurses and doesn't sleep through the night - maybe one night we'll be able to sneak off without the kids. But even then I don't think we'd sneak off exactly - we'd feel too guilty! Next time sneak off and go hit the rink - hee hee!

Oh well, when he's a wee bit older you will be able to sneak off. Really you will need a little time to recharge your batteries now and then!

Not from anybody, but from work. When I go driving to suppliers down the I-5, I sometimes get breaks off, finishing early with suppliers. When I do, I go to one of this mall by the interstate highway where they have one of those stores that give massages for $5, $10, $20. I sometimes get the $10 massage. It's like 15 minutes of pure relaxation. And nobody even knows about it.

Hi ya dawny Blimey sometimes I really wished I could just sneak out but I think that social services might have something to say about that for leaving my kids (6, 8 and 10) home alone hahahaha

Yeah if you don't have somebody to leave them with. If the 10 year old is responsible you could probably go run an errand, but not too much more...

dawn hi! Yes, did one of that like a month ago.. I was so bored from staying home, we were suppose to go to a family party but my hubby didn't feel like going anywhere so I just went to see a movie alone.. It was great to have that freedom away from chores & everyday duties to have that time to unwind... U will be doing more of this in the future & he needs to get used to the fact that the divorce will happen very soon.. Take care & have a great day...

I haven't done any sneaking for a long time...last time was probably snuck out when the kids weren't watching to do something fun with a friend. Then when I would get home they were a little bit jealous or upset..LOL

I really shouldn't be sneaking, I should just say "I'm going out without you". But then I get the puppy dog eyes and the "why don't we do things 'as a family'" and "I'm losing my best friend", etc. But he doesn't want me to feel guilty.

Yeah! An outing with sis, good for you sweetie we all need this from time to time. Hope the movie was great, and hugs to you and sis for sharing an evening out. Hmm, I have not sneaked out in a while.. time to contemplate. lol,

I haven't had to sneak anywhere for over 30 years. That is such a good feeling. You're going to enjoy it once you get through all of this stuff. I couldn't still be living with someone I was in the process of divorcing. I'm sure it's difficult for you.
