The bad news is that I will no longer have my safely net. With Derek on the mend and back to normal, I will have no excuse to give to P when he asks me to leave. Given what he said to T on Saturday, I would not be surprised if I got the hook tonight.
So today, I plan on putting on the full Perfect Wife routine. Cooking, cleaning, and then working on Derek's Halloween costume after dinner. It's a strategic maneuver. If I am knee deep in fabric, P can't kick me out, can he? Or maybe I should nail myself to the floor or hide in the closet.
|Actually, this wouldn't be a bad closet to hide out in|
All joking aside, I've done everything I can to take advantage of this time that I've been given, and I'm going to attempt to stretch this time out as long as possible. I want him to see how much he needs me around--for Derek's sake, at least, if not for his own. Derek needs a stable environment with two parents who will anything to keep him the happy boy that he's always been. I will make P see that, and maybe we can go from there.
