    She has stayed home now I think it is 6 weeks now, other than the weekends. I wonder if she expects me to say something about it. The other day she was saying how she had to ask for a day off of work and was telling me so if I ran into her boss I could...

    When I first heard the legal separation/divorce talk all I did was follow her around the house, from room to room, making excuses why I suddenly needed to be in the same room she just happened to be in. And if she sneezed, I wanted to run to get a tissue...
  • a different interpretation that use to be more common

    One of the many things I appreciate on this site, along with the friendships, is that we concentrate on what we hold common in Christianity. I realize many people follow many religions, be it Catholic, Baptist, Lutheran, non-denominational, etc. and each...

    She told me yesterday she had plans starting at 3pm on friday. She has only told me in advance these things maybe once or twice ever. She also yelled at me because of all the kids messes. I'm thinking, if she would clean up more than once a week,...

  • more exposed to me

    A sister in law called me. Her fiends caught her at a restaurant /bar with a guy that was not the guy she use to spend time with. And they were texting others seeing if we were separated. So more and more people are being exposed. I think everyone will...

    I left for work and called her, she wasn't home yet. She text back I am fine, be home in a few. So, she got home probably a little before 6am. Funny thing, she actually came home about 9pm one night with a movie to watch in the bedroom. (knowing I...

    She gave me paperwork to take care of. In it was a receipt for two pair of gloves and a hitch cover. I asked her who these things were for. She said maybe herself. I let her know that wasn't true. She became mute and started to leave. I shut the garage...

    At a parish mission, I overheard the expression counting the cost. I have no idea why this was said or what it was in reference to, but it hit home. Below is what many of us do, say, and think. I am writing this for myself and anyone else this may hit...

    Not sure why, but i think what i typed below is so dark it is hard to read. I think if you highlight it as if you were going to copy and paste it, it will be easy to read. Sorry. One of the things about this site is i wish they would change the background...
