Well, it is coming to the end of the day today. I had a pretty good day. I had my movie day with the social group I joined. They are a Nerd and Geek group. About 10 people cameover. We watched three movies and I even made cheese dip (I even put in way more sausage then I normally do). I had fun and I think they did as well.
I also got a surprise today. My oldest step daughter friend ed me on Facebook. My ex wife had blocked both daughters from me, then told me the girls did it themselves and wanted nothing to do with me. I knew that was a lie as I had spoken with the girls on a few occasions through their dad. But it still hurt that the woman I had loved would try to hurt me like that.
It is the step daughters 16th birthday on Monday, so I had been thinking about her recently. It was nice that she though enough about me to unblock me and request that I friend her on facebook. It is a double edged sword. I love and miss the girls, but it is also something that keeps me linked to my ex wife and slows down my moving on. I also hope it does not get her into trouble with her mother. I have my ex wife blocked, so she cant see anything I post anywhere, but it would probably not be hard for her to find out that E has made me her friend again.
I did notice a sad thing. After I accepted her friend request, I looked at her wall to see what she has been up to recently. I noticed that she had a few pictures of her dad up in her profile album, but had absolutely none of her mother. I also noticed that she had almost none of her mom in any other photo album. It is sad that my ex wife cannot see that she is alienating her kids. Or even worse, she does not care. :(
But in the end, it was a good day. Good movies with new friends. Also being reminded that I did make an impression on the girls and that they do still care about me. :)
