Went yesterday and signed the lease and got my keys to the new apartment! I took my girls by to see it last night, they were so excited! Now for the hard part. I really do hate doing this so close to christmas but I cant put it off anymore, Im just to tired and drained to put up with it any longer. The kids want to spend christmas in the new place so I guess this weekend will be the start of our new lives! Wish us luck!

First of all, congratulations on making the move. If your kids want to spend Christmas in the new place, do it sooner than later. There is no 'perfect' timing.

Geoteo - While I totally understand the NO contact part, the thing is with kids involved, you just cannot do no contact. Whatever it is, he is the other person who is the guardian of the child god forbid something happens to the other parent. Speaking for myself, I found I still had to communicate with him weekly..and there is always back up needed for child care, and need to discuss school, doctor visits, activities time to time. Granted

Winter, a number of our parents here have found that the best way to deal with the abuser in parenting issues is through e-mail. That way, there is a written record of what went down, issues outside the realm of the kids can be ignored and best of all, you don't have to LISTEN to them. Calla, isn't that mostly how you deal with the Pinettes?

Good advice! I don't think I will have to have too much contact concerning the girls though. I have
