the more things change…

I’m involved in a power struggle with The Philosopher, and I seriously dislike it. It’s the same old crap he pulled the entire seven years we were together, except now he uses the kids as a manipulative tool (this new conflict is about when and how I’m “allowed” to see the boys), and I’m getting really tired of it. I’m not engaging in the whole control-and-dominate game — in fact, I think my “new” reactions to his old behavior are throwing him off and inspiring him to even more bizarre behavior — but it’s grrr-inducing nonetheless. I suppose this is what I get for procreating with a slighly narcissistic and egotistical intellectual type.
