I got up and got some coffee while the computer booted, then got dressed while also getting Casey up, dressed, and fed. I dropped him off at school at the usual time, then headed back home.
I had therapy at 9. Apparently, I hadn’t told Lisa about Brad. I filled her in on all of that, and also told her about the recent things now going on with Daniel and Mindi. I told her how stressed out I was feeling over all of it. How unwell it was making me feel.
I headed back home after Therapy and took care of my free book & paid emails, then hopped in the shower so I would be clean and fresh when Daniel got there later.
He was supposed to get here at 12:30, but it was after 1:30 when he finally arrived. By the time he got here, Mindi had backed out of the arrangement. I planned to as well, after having one last foray.
After he left, it was time to go pick Casey up from school. While waiting for the bell, I told Daniel that I couldn’t keep doing this thing because I wanted a relationship and I couldn’t trust him to be faithful. The bell rang and I brought Casey back home. I got started on some chores that I’d been putting off all day. Then, he wanted to play on the Xbox.
He got on a new world on Minecraft, and I learned I was able to get on a world with him from my computer. That was pretty neat. So, we were able to play together even though he was using my account on the Xbox.
After a couple hours of playing together, I finally got him some dinner ready. He asked how to close Minecraft on the Xbox, so I told him. Then he proceeded to pitch a fit because supposedly I always tell him, after dinner he needs to get ready for bed. He usually eats dinner at 4:30, I don’t know what he was talking about. I was firm with him and told him no more Xbox if this was how he was going to thank me for letting him play on it. I made him go eat his dinner and I got in the shower. When I got out of the shower, he was in by Dave telling him a bunch of lies and saying I’m always mean to him.
Finally, he got ready for bed, but he didn’t come in by me at all. He had Dave read to him, and never even came to tell me goodnight. I’d already been in tears for a while, that certainly didn’t help. Eventually, I went in by him and told him how hurt I was by the lies he was telling and that he had said I was always mean to him. But I also told him I couldn’t let him go to bed without telling him goodnight. I think he was on the verge of crying as well, but he didn’t stop me when I walked out of his room.
I watched an episode of NCIS: New Orleans while scrolling through my Facebook feed, then got on Fallout 76 for a bit until I was ready for bed.
