James Part 5

I have been so busy the past couple of days and the week is getting away from me to quickly. I wanted to post this over the weekend but I have just been to busy. So here is my next James story.

I was pregnant and hoping for the best with James. I wanted to make things work. I did not want to admit that I may have made a mistake with him. I knew deep down in my heart that I would not be with him forever.

I was still working at K-mart when I found out that he was collecting other girls phone numbers. He was getting the laundry together to do while I was at work and I was helping him separate the colors from the whites when he started to hound me about cleaning out his pockets. I was being a smart ass because he said I was checking his pockets and I started to check the "watch pocket" and I found a girls phone number.

Later on I found out that it was a wrong number and he told me he only asked for the number as a bet. I let it go because it was only a number and we were together most of the time anyways.....what could he really do???

A few weeks later we went to my doctors appointment together and while he was in the waiting room (I would find out later) that he was hitting on a girl who was there and told her that he was waiting for his "pregnant sister because her boyfriend left her when he found out she was pregnant". Can you believe he said that? Yeah I guess you can!

I found this out from the girl we were living with after I saw this girl when James and I went out to eat one night.

James and I decided to go to Denny's one night to talk about his drug problem. He was still using and I was very emotional about the whole situation walked into Denny's to eat and I saw a girl I went to school with(the girl from the doctors office)...she was with her boyfriend and was staring me down when I walked past her. I looked at James and said "what's that bitches problem?" He just shook his head. She walked out the door with her boyfriend.

James and I had a long talk and he made promises to me about stopping his drug use and I went home that night praying that he would do the things that he said he would do.

When I got the whole story about that girl I was hurt but it was harmless....he tried to get somewhere but nothing more than lies and flirting went on. I tried to move on from this.............I had bigger problems to deal with.

to be continued..............

Next time I will tell you about the guys who were trying to talk to me in front of James and how he responded.......

It seems like you've lived a kajillion lives! Congratuations on getting past all this crap and being able to talk about it.

And of course, I'm hooked and waiting for the next installment. The stupidity of men and the level of crap we'll put up with (myself oh-so-included) just never ceases to amaze me.

Thankfully my wife didn't have it that bad with her ex-husband.

My response to your comment on my blog:
"Dawn, after giving her the rest of last night to cool off, she was okay this morning and nice tonight. No homework was done tonight, though, since none was assigned. I'm worried that the same thing will happen next time we try to work.

My daughter uses the same thing against me, since I'm only her step-dad. But I've been around since she was 3 (5 yrs), and her dad has given her a grand total of a stick of gum. He doesn't call or write.

But I'm okay with that, because she knows he doesn't care and I do. When she cries for him, it's to hurt my feelings, not because he's better.

We've given our daughter nothing to be happy about tonight, other than a book to read. And she was nice. I dunno, maybe they're happy being miserable. You've seen Annie."

You wife was lucky. I am sure she had problems also....no one should have to go through what I have.

Thanks for the response to my comment on your blog. I am trying very hard to do everything I can for her. Sometimes it is really hard but that is what parents have to do.
