The Domestic Diva Mysteries
by Krista Davis
Am I doing this right? I've never blogged before. I think they want me to talk about why I'm in The Diva Wraps It Up. I don't really like to talk about my problems, you know? I'm the kind of person who just suffers silently. Zips it up and moves on. Okay, here goes.
So, um, a few years ago, Gwen came into my life. Well, she came into my husband Baxter's life first and consequently proceeded to ruin my life. You know where I'm going with this, right? Divorce. And worse, they got the kids. My kids. Baxter's and mine, to be precise. It was as bad as things could get for me. I moved back home with my mom and tried to keep a stiff upper lip. After all, I had visitation, not that that was enough.
But Gwen knew I couldn't afford an attorney, much less a high-powered one like they had, so she started jerking me around. The kids couldn't come to visit. Not even for Christmas! How cruel and unreasonable is that? It says right there in the papers that this is my year to have them for Christmas. And then she sent out a Christmas letter that about sent me through the roof. She said Bethany had to be homeschooled because she needs to move at a faster pace than her school can provide and that Bradley is in college level courses! Now I love my children more than anything in the world but I know them better than anyone, too, and I know perfectly well that they're slackers like me.
So I got in my car and drove straight through the night to see what was up. And you know what? I have come to some conclusions. I'm not going to be pushed around anymore. I'm not going to miss out on my children's lives anymore. No siree. Patty is in town and things are going to change!
