I guess I’m not dealing very well #cherrypiecure

Christmas sucked.

I guess I decided while I was making Tyler his sandwich that I wasn’t going to ruin the kids’ Christmas by making a big deal out of it… I actually remember, that was what I thought, “Don’t make a big deal out of it, Susan.” But honestly, I don’t think I was really… thinking, you know? I was totally shell-shocked. John came home late, and pecked me on the cheek and I flinched with disgust, but he didn’t notice. He and Tyler chatted and watched television. I hid in the kitchen and baked.

I should have maybe texted Marcella. But I was mostly just trying not to think about it…



“I can’t wait to…”

Oh. My. God.

My husband was cheating on me.

My life was over.
