It had to happen eventually...

Since moving to the new house coupled with the fact she-who-must-not-be-named lives with her mother about 5 minutes away, I knew eventually we'd run into her.  Well....tonight was it.  After some wonderful alone time with dear hubby, we headed out to Freebirds around 9 pm tonight.  It was our first time there, and it wasn't as great as Planet Burrito, but it was fairly good.  We decided to eat outside and believe it or not, the atmosphere outside at 9 pm in hot Texas hell was actually lovely. 

It was just three of us--me, hubby, and the baby--as the other kidlets were at their dad's this weekend.  We sit down, I start feeding the baby.  Hubby gets the drinks and sits down and starts eating.  All of sudden a couple of people bust out the door to find seats out on the patio, too.  This woman walks past our table and starts looking for a seat.  I look up and realize it's HER!  I'm rather glad the look on my face was more along the lines of "WTF, you evil bitch" than a look of "shock and awe."  So I glare at her as she takes in me, the baby, and then realizes it's her ex-husband sitting with us.  She literally ran around the corner to the ONLY table out of our sights. It made me giggle.  The look on her face was priceless. I should have taken a picture. 

I look at my husband and say, "Um, I think that was your ex-wife."  He looks shocked and then he sees her brother and her mother coming out the same door to sit with her.  Then my dear husband says as loudly as possible, just as his former mother-in-law walks by us, "Yep, that's her."  Then we both start giggling.  

A little while later, the baby gets tired of sitting in the highchair, so I let her walk all around the patio with me.  When we turn to go back to our table I look over, and she-who-must-not-be-named is practically trying to crawl into her little plastic basket holding her burrito.  After being such an ass to my husband, she was such a scared little girl when I saw her. I couldn't believe it. 

After a little while, we finish, grab a drink refill and walk past their table to leave.  Hubby carries our sweet little girl on his shoulder past them with his head held high, completely ignoring her. I thought it was great.  It went much better than I anticipated. I figured the first time we saw her out, she would confront him or something. There's always next time, lol.
