i just had to post because i am so happy about a conversation i just had with my ex-husband. we had a very very messy and angry divorce, and bad bad relationship since we split up. we have been able to be civil when we see each other, but basically avoid each other and don't usually communicate. i called him asking for help with our youngest son (see other post if you need details)and was very pleased that he called me back. we played phone tag a bit, but now finally connected and had a very long talk about "jr," which i hope will be the first step in getting him back on track. it just felt so good to finally be able to relate to each other like normal. thank god.
