I just went through a horrible divorce ( and I can honestly say it is all his fault) ....
We have 3 kids ages 12, 10 and 7 ... I have main custody - they go to his house every other weekend and every wednesday after school . Next week he gets them from Sunday until Friday .... I have been stressed out from all of this so I decided to go away for a couple of those days ( I have a friend who has a house on the beach a state away) ... At first I wouldnt leave state without my children, but I dont think i would get another offer like this and I know my mom is here in case my kids need something ( they are very close to her too ) ... i would only be gone 3 days ( I will be back on the 4th day) ....
Do i have to tell him that I am going ? I am asking this because of the way he is he will automatically assume ( and say ) that I am going there to be with another man ( not true) , and constantly call and text to make sure he ruins my time. .. When i take the kids over I plan on just saying I am going to keep myself busy ( i dont want to tell my kids I am going either since that would put them in a position of keeping a "secret" from their dad) ....
Is it really horrible that I dont want to tell him? I mean do i have to ? If there was an emergency or something I am technically only 4 hours away ...

You are not required to tell him anything about your personal plans. You've made plans for your kids in case of an emergency and that's all you have to do. Have a great relaxing time, enjoy yourself.
