Giving Too Much?
Hi. My finance is in treatment for alcoholism. He did this all on his own & I am very proud of him. For the past 2.5 mths, I have taken his 5 yr son every Saturday afternoon for the night and we go see "Joe" for a couple hours on Sunday. It is an hour drive each way to visit. I end up having his son for a full 24 hr period each week. (I have 2 children of my own, a bit older.)
I don't have my children this weekend and asked my finance if we would have a solo visit just this once. He hesitated and said he didn't want to go 2 weeks w/o seeing his son.
I understand that part; however, his son is not respectful to me, he has NO boundries from either Dad or mom. I would really like to have the time to myself on Saturday to catch up on all I have put on the back burner. I don't want to deal with the son quite frankly and the 2 hr visit of him needing constant attention.
