My husband has been exhibiting some unsettling behavior and I'd like to know if I'm overreacting. He's semi-retired and works from home part-time. Over the last year and a half, he's become the Pied Piper of the neighborhood with an entourage of pre-teen children (mostly girls, one boy) that hang around inside and outside our house. I've asked, begged, and pleaded for him to not bring the kids inside - my children are all married and gone, so they're not coming in to play with anyone but him. I'm not interested in cleaning up after the neighborhood children and having them underfoot, not to mention the complete lack of privacy because I never know who hubby is going to bring into the house. If I get upset, he'll promise to stop and then after a few days, it starts all over again. Last week I had an 11 year old girl (home from school with chicken pox!) in my house for an entire afternoon, from 1:00 til 6:00. I lost it after she left, and again the promises were made which were broken last night. The doorbell rang about 7:30 as we were settling in to watch a movie and he invited a 12 y.o. boy in, then was rude to me in front of the boy when I said I thought we were going to watch the movie. Needless to say the movie didn't get watched and he's not speaking to me because I blew up after the boy finally left.
I also find it odd that he has the cell phone numbers for three of the children stored in his cell phone. The whole thing creeps me out and I don't know what to do. Am I overreacting? He obviously doesn't care what I think. Can anyone offer any advice?
