I guess I cannot say that I am surprised.
I mean, I suppose it's somewhat expected that he may have decided what boundaries are acceptable for me - boundaries are only to be set by him - and I guess he decided that he will live next door to me, in the other house on this property, 20 yards away.
It doesn't really surprise me that he would assume that I would be fine living next door to him - the person who hurt me, choked me to the ground, and then justified it. Really, it doesn't. There have been many serious requests I have made about boundaries that have gone ignored over the years.
But I guess it does surprise me that, even after a judge told him he may not be near me or live here for three years, he put down his contact address for the court....as my address.
I guess it is not very shocking that he would refuse to move, after not paying a cent in rent for nearly two months. But it is rather shocking that he would refuse to move after being ordered to stay away from me.
He isn't living here, he can't live here, but lists this as his address.
He isn't living here, yet refuses to move his things out.
I have been told to move them myself, but it is slightly more complicated - I am not trying to be unkind, but am running out of patience.
Also? He is a packrat, and the moving of his things is more than my delicate constitution can handle.
But, he would like everyone to know that he is 'doing everything possible to become a family again'.
Even against my will. For my will is, apparently, insignificant in his equation.
He is their father; he is not my partner.
The line was crossed. He took it too far. I do not wish to retrace those steps, ever.
