I have the best Flisties...

I was kind of blown away by all the support.

*hugs flist tightly*

You guys are pretty awesome. I owe you all chocolate brownies. Or beer, whatever you prefer. Maybe chocolate porter for those of you who can't decide...

After much soul searching and wiffle waffling, I decided that pondside was right when she asked if I was always going to wonder if he was really reaching out if I didn't take the (possible) olive branch. And rahirah asked the key question - do I want to give him another chance? Gah. The answer is YES.

I've always felt a huge sense of loss over the fact that LilBro and I were not terribly close, and when we became estranged, I never had the chance to be Aunty to his kids. I have two nephews and a niece that I've never known. And my kids have missed out on getting to know their cousins growing up, and I hate that. We didn't always get along, but at least I knew my cousins - KF (my fave when we were pre-tens) LF (who always annoyed me because she was so much better than everyone else, but we were the only two girls in a sea of BOYS) MF (little-brother type, several years younger, was always so CUTE) EF (really kind of scary, but mostly he hung out with AlabamaBro and they got into ALL KINDS of TROUBLE) GW (so annoying! We constantly tried to ditch him) - man, we had some good times as kids. My kids missed out on that because AlabamaBro is too far away and LilBro and I have been on the outs since his first boy was a baby.

So. I have accepted the request. As much as I agree that a phone call or email would have been nice - it would never happen. I'm not even sure he knows my phone #. And I've no clue if he has my email address.

I guess we'll see what, if anything, happens. And I will keep myself safe from further harm - if he starts any kind of passive-aggressive bullshit with me, then I'll just cut off contact. Eh. It's not like I go on FaceCrack often anyway.

Thanks again, flisties, for listening to my babble and sharing your thoughts. I appreciate it.

I'm sorry I missed your original post.

I hope you get the outcome you're looking for, and if not, now you know and you don't have to feel guilty for rejecting any future overtures.

I'm so glad you've come to a decision that you feel comfortable with :) And if he does start anything, you can remember that you did make an effort. I really hope all goes well for you, though!

Good you followed your gut, and with a wise and open mind about it all.

Love you lots.... Pondside says if there are any issues let her know. She is "more that capable of writing more letters, and still doesn't know how to spell his name.
