Meh, not very well. I skype the kids but the boy doesn't like to chat online (can't shut him up in person) and the girl has a little boyfriend now so dear lo' dad is a mere annoyance now, unless she needs me to buy her something. I get fits of depression about it every now and again but I kinda knew this was going to happen when the ex-opotomus fucked off back to Santa Cruz.
Hey, Crika, good to see you. My ex turned my two sons against me and so we were estranged for several years until they wised up. Today I am really close to one, but the other is still being brainwashed by his mother. I talk to him, but we're not as close. It bothers me, but what can I do? His case is complicated by him having mental issues. It is what it is. Anyway, I can sympathize with the sort of shit you're dealing with.
