Dig up some dirt on your brothers wife, and then threaten to expose her if she doesn't play nice.

Not blowing up the bridge, it would be like one of those psychological thrillers where nobody knows but the two of them. Alpha Beta would then excerpt more and more control over her behind the curtains, dragging her into a nightmarish existence of secretive torment administered by a maniacal brother in law, while everyone else in her life thinks that they have patched things up, and are getting along great.

The first time I went into a casino was at the age of 17.  My big sister and her boyfriend took me to Lake Tahoe

anyway I started playing the nickel slots  and proceeded to hit several jackpots in a row

I was swimming in nickels which had filled up half the hopper

about this time this beautiful girl comes over and asks me if Id like a drink

I ordered a beer

so I stood there winning money and drinking free beer thinking this was the greatest ever

went home with over $200 in winnings and slightly drunk

been hooked on casinos ever since

That's yet to be determined. I'm too old for drama in my life and might just blow up the bridge.

You know the old saying... Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.

under the assumption that the kids were already part of the deal, I think saying “ i’m going to see your kids“ is enough of their business that it can’t just count as your business. granted, I don’t know how much she jumped the gun, I don’t know how much the kids were supposed to be involved, etc.

In short, again without what I’m sure is a boatload of context, An aunt telling a mother she is excited to see nieces/nephews strikes me as communal business, or communal enough to avoid blowing everything up.
Normally I might agree. So there's context, built out of lack of trust.

She contacted my wife basically at noon Thursday. It pretty much came out of nowhere for us; we usually schedule well in advance. With what I know of the kids' schedule, my wife would have had to be going to pick up the kids from school by 1:30 PM. I very highly doubt that she could have physically seen my ex post-1:30. 

Maybe they were just texting back and forth. Maybe because she was texting my ex at the time, she thought about me, my wife, and the kids, and decided to invite us, and completely innocently divulged that information to my ex...

Or... Maybe they were out to lunch together. Maybe they were cooking something up. They're both gossips, and were gossips when my ex and I were married. Was she across the table from my ex, texting my wife? Was I going to get ambushed by my ex showing up at this afternoon bbq because suddenly they all want to be a happy family? Am I just driving myself crazy with outlandish possibilities?

We just saw them with the kids 2 weeks ago at our house. So I doubt she was just overcome by excitement at seeing the kids and had to gush it out to someone. And the late timing of the invite was questionable. And I already don't trust her.

I guess it really all depends on how much you value a relationship with you brother. That's the bottom line.

I only value relationships with people who value mine... And a married couple is a package deal.

Time to walk, I reckon. Sorry man. That's where I'd be.

Too many good friends to have bad ones, right?

Makes sense, especially with a history of chicanery.

I would warn about the bolded section. I've lived less life than you, but I've learned that people are not nearly as intentional as they are in our worried brains. Even if we think people are all hanging out without us, it's usually not the case. 

That said, at the moment, do you NEED to hit the button? You canceled the plans. I assume something else happened with the Saturday. If a schism is meant to be, they'll give you a damn good reason. Folks like that always do.

As someone with a nutty vindictive ex, I have two opposite thoughts. One, there is something to be said for not letting her dictate your life. She already seems to have driven a wedge between you and your brother and seems able to cause all sorts of issues that make you feel crazy and self-doubting. There is a certain refreshing feeling to saying screw whatever she thinks because she is no longer a part of your life (which is itself false, because you have kids together and she's like a ghost that always haunts you).

The other thought is that you are part of the family and she is not. So why the hell is this lady talking to her at all?

I have a nutty ex, somewhere.  One kid thinks she may be in Israel, or not, neither of them have any contact, though every couple of years she tries to get in touch with them apparently, with marginal success.  

As for me, I feel like an OLD man now.  I can barely walk two blocks with this heart thing.  I reckon a few decades back, if this happened to you, you were just basically sedentary for the rest of your life a walker, a powered wheel chair, something.  I can barely move, and it's getting worse.  I can't recall ever thinking I'd be happy to have surgery, but this will be an occasion.

The poor wife is having to make every meal now, I keep saying I'm sorry, I can probably do a little bit, slowly.

Don't let this happen to you, and if it does, go early to the doc.

Our excuse for cancelling was that I had made a tee time with my 13yo for the afternoon. Which means that I had to make a tee time lol.

So we played nine holes. I shot a personal best for that course at +4. My son had two really good chances at making his first par of his life, but not just barely missed. One if these days one of those will drop.

Wife is making salmon tacos for dinner tonight.

So I suppose it all worked out today.
