Before I dive in, no, I'm not doing ICLW. I'm still trying to figure out how to catch up with a week and a half of posts. I think I may have to bail and just start with, say, yesterday, and hope I didn't miss too much. Anywho...
For those of you who have followed me for a while, you know all about the Frog and Pixie saga (and no, I'm not linking back...I don't feel like tracking down the posts). Summary: DH and I have an open marriage. F&P were my lovers. Then things went BAD.
Recently, I opened a door I didn't realize I was opening. When Frog was in the hospital, Hubby and I checked in with them regularly. They don't really have any friends outside of work. We were it. And with a new baby...we wanted to make sure they were okay. Hubby even did an emergency cat food run for them.
I mentioned that Frog gave me a thank you note, but didn't even look at me. And remember I mentioned sending them a thank you for helping us get here by referring us to our RE. And then dropped off the crib. I thanked him for it at work, and he just kinda blew it off. But called DH to come help fix it....yeah, they will talk to him, but not me. At all. Then we got MORE stuff from them: swing, changing table, and high chair, plus a few random clothes. And Mikey met the baby (he's sooooo excited to have our own tiny being here after seeing the itty bitty one). But I'm out in the cold.
WHY??????? I don't UNDERSTAND! Now, I am incredibly grateful for the donations. They are incredibly generous. And I wouldn't turn them away. And I suppose I opened that door. But when there was no contact, I wasn't questioning things. And there was no drama. And I was TOTALLY fine with that. Now I don't know what. Because it's quite obvious they still don't want contact with me. Then why the donations? I don't understand.
