You can take the girl outta da hood but you can't take da hood outta the girl!

Geez what a week! Dh got here Sunday afternoon and left to go BACK to Florida this morning. Before he came he had wanted to live with me but I didn't want to fall back into the same routine if nothing had changed..I didn't come this far to go back to that...I deserve better and so do the kids. It took me a LONG time to realize that....Still I believe he thought I would change my mind because he came here withOUT reservations at a hotel OR a place to live. I didn't cave and after a couple of days of not convincing me to take him in he left to go back to Florida. He left this morning but not before the drama last night. Goodness in true redneck fashion we had a yelling match in the parking lot of my apartment complex. Yep I am officially white trash and have stooped to a new low. So that is the update...he is gone and our life will go on once again. This time he can't undo the damage. I tucked 3 crying children in bed last night and he can't take that back. Good thing they have a heavenly Father that will never leave them or forsake them:-)

Do what you need to do for your sanity and the safety of your children. Love must be tough some times.

The Lord gave you the strength needed to combat that situation and to see it coming. You are my hero because I don't know that when I come face to face with that challenge I will be so strong. You are loved and admired by many....your children included.

You did what you had to do. End of story. No regrets or looking back but I bet you gave dh something to think about didn't you? Keep being a brave little soldier for God.

I ditto what Lynn said. You didn't stoop to a new low, you just reacted to what was before you like 99.9% of us would have.

I feel for what you're going thru. Keep your chin up and your children will love you even more.
