I'm so bad at these things.
C is still a delight. He does, from time to time, suffer from verbal diarrehea (spelling, I know), which I just ignore since I have a few friends who do the same thing. I just got back from four days away with the kids, but we talked every day.
The second night I was gone, he stopped the conversation and told me that even though he had talked about how beautiful people thought his ex wife was (annoying, yes) she was not fun to be with. He told me I am no one's doormat, even though I have been, and all my good qualities have lead people to think they can abuse me. He wants me to be strong, take no crap, but also know, that to him, I am the complete package. I was floored...in a good way.
Then he joked that since I was gone for "so long" that he has a list of needs for me to meet when I got home!
Anywhooo, here's where I need the input:
My ex is showing up tonight...he didn't ask, he told the kids, who then told me. By that time they had accepted the offer, so I felt stuck.
C wants me to come stay at his house tonight, I can stay at my brothers tomorrow night (C has his kids for the weekend, so a second night is a no go). The problem is that the ex won't arrive here until about 2AM, so if I stay at C's, the kids will be alone until 2, possibly 3. FYI, DS will be 18 next month, DD will be 15 next month.
I've stayed over once at C's when DS was home alone, but DD stayed at my brother's. Would it be weird if I just left them here, knowing their father was going to be there by 2? When they wake up, an adult WILL be home. C only lives 12 minutes away, so if something happened I could be home ASAP.
But I DON'T want to wake up tomorrow morning to my shirtless (he always does that...thinks he's a stud) ex snoring on my couch while I try to drink my coffee. Plus C is not real comfortable with it...not that he thinks the ex is going to put the moves on me, but he doesn't like me being around people who aren't nice to me! (Awww)
