Because of that, I didn't get much sleep so it was tossing and turning until I couldn't stand it anymore. At 4:30, I rolled over to check the email on my phone and discovered the following message from my HP:
Subject: You Missed It....She was right, she did text me (which I then promptly blocked her -- yay iPhone!) the day of his birthday, but I was stuck at work and couldn't call. Obviously, I wasn't in the mood to play around -- especially with this crazy bitch, so I replied with the following response:
ETH and ETH's Bro,
I sent the below text to both of you on Tuesday nite so you wouldn't miss your dad's birthday but said he didn't hear anything. I'm the only one that remembered. He said it's "OK", but I know he's disappointed and hurt cuz he only turns 60 one time and that was on Tuesday 3/4/2014.
Subject: RE: You Missed It...
Not that I have to explain anything to you, but I've been working very long hours at work. I work ten hour shifts now and don't get home until after 7 at night. I texted dad to explain that I was stuck at work because of a sick kid from the ER and that I'd call him the next night. I wished him a happy birthday and said that I loved him. If he didn't receive that, then it's not my fault.I refuse to play her emotional terrorism games. That's exactly what she was doing. I'm done. To be honest, I'm pretty proud of myself for doing it.
Unfortunately, another child came crashing through our doors last night and I was late coming home again.
Furthermore, after 2+ years of silence following your behavior towards me and my family at Christmas, you've lost the right to scold me.
When you're ready to apologize to me, my husband, and my son for the name calling and overall nasty crap you slung at us in our home, let me know. Otherwise, leave me alone.
As of 3:00 this afternoon, I haven't received a reply. I half expect my father to call, but I don't think he will. I also suspect that this won't be the end of it either. Doesn't matter -- the gloves are off and I'm ready to put an end to this.
Until Next Time,
