100% On Me

Friday I got a text from my ex asking if I could take over paying the rugrats cell phone bill.  I actually had been expecting this for a while, but somehow the knowledge that I was responsible for all expenses for my children hit me in a way I hadn't anticipated.  It was like the last thread holding any respect I had left for someone I once shared a life with was snipped away.  I know the job market is tough out there right now, but everyone makes choices.  It's not even the money that I care about (he's right, "with what you make, you should be able to pay for it no problem").... it's more the principle of the matter.  Live up to your responsibilities. 

So now I need to take a hard look at myself.  Am I making wise choices?  Do I really have my act together?  In reality I tend to dodge those questions and just go with the flow.  My kids deserve at least one parent who is a grownup.
