The TVM - New Zealand here we come!!!

Postby Tookish_Traveler » Mon Jun 20, 2011 4:05 am

So Calma wanted to go to the Mall of America. Never been there, my own self, in real life.

Hmmm.... 4 levels. :D

Where should we start? At the top or the bottom???


Mall of America shopping spree!

Bettie Page specializes in 1950s influenced retro apparel and offers perfect pencil skirts, timeless circle dresses and the crinolines to go with them ranging from sizes XS to 4X.


Yep. That's where I'll head first. 8)

:hug: Tygs. It's hard, but there's no sense in wasting time on a cheating guy. Like Iris, I wish that we could all jump into a real TVM and come to see you.

Looks like I will have at least a back row seat. Usually by the time I get to the thread, there's barely room in the trunk. :D

I will take you up on that Iris and go with you!! :twisted:

I was at Mall of America in 2002 when I went to meet SmaugsBane and Oyarsa, Neithened the wrong, Deorwine and another gal, can not remember her name now. It was June of 2002 just before I met my beloved!! I spent days there and never saw the entire mall!! It was fabulous though. :D

Bruce is now beggin me not to go, he says he has txt the other woman and told her to never contact him again. He swears on his mother's ashes nothing happened between them. She is in love with him, but he is not with her. He says he wants to make us work and that he loves m,e. So what do I do now?? I am so confused. Can I ever get rid of the doubt now, I dont know if I can ever get rid of the thought that he could be round her place instead of at work???

Gosh, Tyg, I wish I could help you on that one.
Maybe you can suggest a temporary separation?
Or just give him one more chance.
If he doesn't straighten up and be the man he should be
Then drop him like a rock.
Set down the rules for him.
Let him know he's going to have to work his butt off to get your trust back.

Of course I could be talking up my sleeve
Because I've never had to go through the hell you're going through.

If you really, really, want him in your life permanently
Then you are the one to decide this puzzle.

That's the only thing I can think of.
For whatever it's worth, friend.

Tygs, that is a tough one. :?

You can give him the chance. I think you will know if it isn't working out. I can never figure out why some guys do this when they become a father. You'd think he be all happy to be a Dad and do Dad stuff. :roll:


Rowan, I like that store too. I'm sure there's a lot more here. I really didn't have time to peruse the directory. I think we could spend a few days here and spend a few bucks.

I'm sure we can find some more polka dots for Gollum Girl. And perhaps an new hawaiian shirt for me???? 8) 8) 8) 8)



We are using rwhen's credit card, after all. ;)

If he really loves you, ask him to show it. Gently. Love is mostly in actions not in words...like Cal said, give him another chance, if you think it is the right thing to do...it's all up to you really, it's your life...
But in any case, you have my sympathies. :hug: My grandmother went through a similar situation.



...But polka dots?! I want a stripped skirt! :D And Tookish, I'm sure I could find a hamburger hat that would look nice with that hawiian shirt. ;)

Tygs hon my heart goes out to you. I have been where you are but will not tell you what to do. Give him a chance or don't but you must set the rules either way. He needs to follow your lead and if he can not then there is nothing else to say. :hug: I love you and support you whatever you do sweetie. I don't remember if you two got married legally or not. If so then it is something to consider, but if not then I don't know enough to make any claim on which way to go. I can say that trust is not easily regained once it is broken.

It took me years to do what was right for me because I was afraid of being alone. You have a massive support system in family and us hon. So don't let fear sway your either way. :rose:

Tygs, I can only second what the others have said. Give him a chance if you feel that way, or suggest a separation for some time to find out what both of you really want, if that seems the better option. In any case, now it's you who must set the rules, and if it turns out that he can't play by them, then he isn't worth it. :hug:

Echoing what everyone else said, Tygs, I'll add: seek couples counseling. Until what made him do this is addressed, it will happen again. It might be good for both of you to sit down with someone who isn't involved in the situation and talk it out. A counselor is trained to see things you'll miss. :hug: :hug: :hug:

Tooks: we all have our own copies of the credit card right? :P

Tygs, it's good news in that he's owned up to the mistake himself. Always a positive sign, that. But Iris is wise, couples counselling is a good idea. A trained observer / mediator is usually very helpful to both parties involved in the situation.

As to whether you can ever trust him again, yep, that's a hard one no question about it. The counselling would help there too, but the bottom line remains that he made a boo-boo and is going to have to really work hard to regain your trust. I truly hope it all turns out well and that this experience will make you a stronger team in the end. :thumbsup:

And I'll echo Tooks . . . GAAAHHH!!! WORK!!!

:hug: Oh my dear one. I am so sorry to read of what you are going through. You are double conflicted because now there is a child to consider as well. Only your heart can answer this for you, be true to yourself and you will never be sorry for what ever decision you end up making. I do know from experience as well that you can choose to stay and feel good about that, you can choose to leave and feel good about that. For my part, I chose to stay but then once I was over the hurt, I found I couldn't live with the person who hurt me that way. Please let us know how this is going, we are all here for you for any part of your decision process without judgment, just caring and love. :hug:

Making a decision is a positive step though, I so hope that in the long run, things will truly work out for the best. In the meantime, you have your beautiful Logan to be your focus and joy. My thoughts remain with you both.

And yes nl, that is the Mall I will take you to. We may have to bring string and breadcrumbs . . . even I get lost in that joint . . . :shock: :D
