When you go looking for trouble...

You know how the saying goes.

In a momentary lapse in being my usual confident self - one of those pms inspired... "insecure moments" - I was telling my Mother about how Spartan's ex girlfriend showed up at one of their mutual friends birthday parties on the weekend. My Mother was all "so what"... and I said, well Mom she was really pretty. In fact, she was a model. Wanna see? - and proceeded to pull up her self worship site complete with pictures...

Should have so known better than to do that... but I did. And smack. Up appears a picture of herself and my darling boy with his arm around her. *mental vomit* Did NOT need to see that. Lol.

So I says, self... serves you right for looking.

Then, instead of letting my imagination run wild (because I love and trust Spartan more than anyone in the world - and didn't for a millisecond think anything of this -), I went to the gym and ran 4 k at the speed of light.

Then I called Spartan and said,

"Honey... I'm pretty angry at myself. I did something really stupid..."
and proceeded to tell him the entire sordid tale. I felt so much better for having gotten it off of my chest. I actually felt pretty guilty about it.

He felt so awful. He couldn't even remember posing for pictures with her.... then a few minutes later he checks out the pictures himself and text messages me that they were actually from last year before he even met me. LOL. I suppose there was life before Liz. But I have to admit that it kind of made me feel a little better - I wasn't upset with thinking the pics were from the weekend but I wasn't exactly thrilled about the idea either...

I feel the shame. But again... lesson learned. And it totally does serve me right.

Yeah, I was shocked to find out my wife wasn't a virgin when we got married. Lying tart.

Ahhh, the ugly head of jealousy. I got all antsy recently when my husband got in contact with an old ex-girlfriend through FaceBook. She was one of the main ex's that I'd heard about, a long-ish-term one, semi-serious... grrrrrrr... hehe all very silly, since I know perfectly well I'm safe!! Logic doesn't always work well with jealousy :S

limpy - lmao

stace - I know... lucky for me it rarely rears its ugly head... lucky for me I adore him so totally and I know his heart. Off to mow the lawn...

That's why the only pics I post on the internet are of the "below the waist" variety.

I hate it when stuff like that happens...Ex's are generally just annoying (especially if they happen to be gorgeous)

Well done for handling it the way you did.

Böbø said...

Oh Elizabeth, sneaking about an ex's site is always asking for a hiding. HullaNoseyPants would never ever do anything … oh, actually now I remember, you are both VERY alike! lol

Slyde said...

if it makes you feel better, feel free to fly out here and you and i can take as many pictures together as you would like.

Callie said...

Yeah, I've done the same thing . . . sort of.

I'm a heck of a snoop.

At least you got it off your chest, and you can put it behind you.

btw - if you ever feel the need to do that again, you can cleanse your anxiety by mowing my lawn. See . . . I'm gracious that way.

;-)

elizabeth said...

earl - don't worry there were plenty of those too, lol

brazen - why thank you darling! And welcome!

bobo - give her a big hug. The two of us girls should live closer together so we could commiserate together...(sp?)

slyde - but they would have had to have been from BEFORE you devil you...

callie - at least I'm not the only one... my snooping days are totally OVER...but in case I relapse I'll keep your lawn in mind...
