Happy New Year

Bonne année et meilleurs voeux to all my lovely blog readers.  2012 was a good year for the Ksam household and I have high hopes for 2013 as well!  We rung in the New Year chez nous with good company and an abundance of cheesy raclette goodness.  The only thing marring the night was a surprise text message from Fab's wife, sent from his phone, telling me to "occupe-toi de ton cul et laisse-nous tranquil salope".  It's a nasty little message full of spelling mistakes, saying "Take care of your own ass and leave us alone b*tch". 

Classy, huh?

I tweeted her text because it was bothering me yet it didn't really seem like an appropriate dinner topic, and my twitter friends were just as mystified as myself.  And it's still throwing me for a loop even a few days later.  I guess it just brings back some bad memories of the crazy MIL, who was constantly doing evil things behind my FIL's back.

But mainly, I just don't get it.  We have never had any kind of contact before, so why randomly text me on NYE?  The whole break-up occurred coming up on five years ago now, and it's not like Fab and I are in contact on a regular basis.  He sent me a text after the US elections saying "Looks like Once you go black, you never go back" and I wrote back saying I was glad to see he hadn't lost his sense of humor, but that was it.  So how does that merit an insulting SMS almost two months later?

I didn't reply to her, but I am somewhat tempted to email Fab and say "Do you realize your wife is a crazy biyatch?"  But I haven't yet, because 1) He probably does realize that (and it serves him right) and 2) If she's reading his texts, she is probably reading his emails too, so it wouldn't serve any purpose.

All of this has made me even more grateful that I am in Paris in a loving and drama-free relationship, and no longer isolated and lonely in Bretagne.  Another confirmation for me that everything happens for a reason, and I am definitely looking forward to the fun and new opportunities that 2013 will bring.

Happy New Year! That is pretty crazy times, I wonder if there's not something going on there... Like she found messages from another woman on his phone and to cover up he said it was you trying to get him back, or something weird like that?

I would guess something weird is going on in her head (I like Gwan's theory) and that it's not even worth trying to guess what it is! Sorry that happened though, a message like that would piss me off/freak me out too!
Anyway happy new year!

How weird and disturbing. I wonder if Gwan isn't onto something. Sounds like she was also probably drunk. I have my own theory and it's not just to make you feel good about yourself. She knows you are a better person and that Fab will never love her as much as he loved you. Just my 2c

I think she's been stewing for two months, and then sent the message when she was drunk. She obviously thinks all communication should be at an end. It probably makes it worse that she knows he sent the first message - and is just plain jealous, as well as insecure!

I remember how you, me, and Kaitlyn were all going through awful breakups at the same time all those years ago. Now we are all three happily married to the men we were actually meant to be with. Less drama, more love so those hard times were def worth it! Best of luck to you and C in 2013!

Obviously a drunk text based upon her own insecurities and the problems in their marriage. Don't worry about it. Not your problem. Thank your lucky stars you got out when you did!

Coucou! Fab probably got several New Year's sms' from friends; she looked at them and, in her paranoia, reckoned one of them was from you.

They deserve each other; he certainly did not deserve you.

Laisse tombe...don't respond...take the high road because that's who you are.

Well hell, happy new year. Not knowing any of the participants I would recommend letting it fall off into the dustbin of history. Why get wrapped up in the nonsense of people you don't care to deal with? You won't get any satisfaction, and you don't need it. Happiness in your own life is good enough.

That and invitations to Qatari banquets.

I would bat his number from now on and have nothing more to do with them. I think if you ever meet face to face you should acknowledge them but I would get rid of his number. You are a happily married woman and have no need to keep it, move on. his is what I would tell my own children. Let go. x

Bonne Annee Chere Samantha. It's wonderful so see you happy in Paris. You proably know the French term "donner de la confiture aux cochons"... All these Bretons did not know how lucky they were to have you in their life.:)

WHOA! I totally missed that tweet ... but then I was too busy with all that melted cheese :).

Let crazy people be crazy people. Can you block her number?

How old is his wife??? From the text I would think about 16. Personally, I would let him know, and let him see the proof, and then leave it at that. Years ago an ex's new girlfriend was calling me and he had absolutely no idea but he was happy when I told him and the craziness stopped. But you gotta do what's right for you :)

It came from his phone? In that case I'd answer with an "Eh?" and leave it at that. See what happens. I certainly would not sit on it and do nothing. You should not be receiving insulting messages on your phone.

Happy New Year, here's to lots of wonderful moments and absolutely no insulting text messages. Cheers!
