    She was heading out for the night. (came home at 3:45am) Before she left I went to give her a kiss. she pulled back a little saying she just glossed or something like that, something to do with lipstick I guess. So, I acted a little silly and gave her...

    It's happened a few times in the past. and it happened again at least for me. I could not access the site for a few days. But it appears some of you have been able to. I often think, man, if whoever runs this site chooses to shut it down, ugh, there...

    She asked if I could put light bulbs in the ceiling fixtures in the hall way by the end of last weekend. I did so, not really wanting to do it but with the LD molding I did it by when she wanted it done. This weekend, we were in the same hallway together...

    it's close to 6 years now since she said she wanted a legal separation/d. It's also our 25th wedding anniversary. I didn't text her happy anniversary during the day. I came home, saw her sitting on her go to place the couch in front of the...

    It's funny. Before, I couldn't think and type at the same time. Now, I can due to this site. Our 25th wedding anniversary is coming up soon. So is the 6 year mark of when she said she wanted a legal separation/d. She had been planning it for over...

    FYI.... I heard back from the person I began wondering if they passed away from the surgery. Thank you for your prayers. When someone suddenly stops PMing or journaling, it leaves a bit of a hole, wondering how the person is doing. She is still being...

    Please say a prayer for a member of this group. this person had been PMing me off and on for a long time. And this person was going in for a fairly popular surgery, but this surgery does have risks. It's been on my mind awhile I have not heard back...

    Many of us know how our spouses can spew venom when talking to us. Ripping us apart just with words. But, what we don't always know is this, or at least me.... When they soften some, and they begin talking to you. Even if it's a grunt if you asked...

    I think I did well biting my tongue in this trial. Maybe not right away, but bite my tongue I did. And listening. did well there too. And I thought, if things ever, ever get better this is one area I will not fall back and not do well, listening and biting...

    She left the house early afternoon. When she does this, it means for the most part she's gone till who knows when. But always have no expectations. I found her in the family room this evening. I then went to the basement to cool off. The house is...

    i prayed about her going to the grad party last night and this morning. Not much more than a sentence or two though. After church, someone asked me if she goes to church any more. I said that is between her and (the person who asked). I did not want to...

    I prayed the other night in church like I mentioned in my last entry. Part of the prayer was what to do for her 50th birthday and our 25 year anniversary. We normally get each other very little to save money. I have been considering a nice anniversary...

    About a week ago, I asked her if she would please go to a graduation party with me. she didn't say much at all. Kind of let it go in one ear and out the other. Better than her being negative. Today she called me while I was at work. She asked if the...

    Today was the big end of the school year party she put on. I woke up at 730 am. Shortly after, I saw her coming in from being out all night. When she saw me she said don't ask. I wasn't really awake yet, me and the kids cleaned the house for her...

    4 of the last 5 years she's taken on a very big end of the school your project that requires a lot of planning, shopping, organizing, food prep, decorating, and so on. It would overwhelm me and I could not do it. The last 3 times she has not asked...

    She was sick last night. I called her this afternoon to check on her as well as discuss some other things. She talked to me in some detail of having food poisoning, what's going on with the kids schedules, etc. It was a pretty stress free call. She...

    FYI...I feel like my responses are getting less and less effective. I seem to be wearing out responding. So, really keep this in mind if my responses aren't making sense or aren't on par. And always pray about anything I or anyone else says if...

    I worked out in the yard Memorial Day morning. She said late morning she and a daughter were going to spend the day in a town about 45 minutes away. She said one of the other kids may come too. She then said, kind of without saying it, that I could come...

    How foolish the flesh can be. Years here and being in peace so often when the world would say cave in and give up and abandon her and God because there's nothing to be happy about. And knowing the peace is only from God. Through prayer and reading...
