I did one tattoo
then I came home. I wouldn’t even have done the one, but I didn’t want to put the lady off. When I didn’t have anyone to witness my divorce papers, she did it on the spur of the moment (in the Walmart parking lot) & even rounded up a friend for the 2nd witness. Gotta appreciate a person like that.
The girls are doing homeschool and looking through the family picture box in my room, which isn’t helping me rest very much but it’s nice family time.
I’m lying in bed trying not to die.
My x’s brother John did die this morning. I had to tell him I was so sorry, but didn’t know if the girls and I will make the trip. It’s 13.5 hours one way, and I don’t have another driver. The boys are already there with him.
I should go though. Even though Richard is my x, John was my brother too for 27 years. The family already probably thinks I hate them because of the divorce. I should go as an act of respect and goodwill. No funeral details yet.
I hate being the grown-up, the responsible one, the one who has to do the right thing, even when I don’t want to.
Right now though, I’m in enough pain that I don’t want to think about it.
