    The central air unit broke yesterday so its 85 degrees in the house. The kids and I are so uncomfortable. It's probably going to take a few days to fix because parts have to be ordered. To spite this I slept pretty well last night. I only woke up...

    I had a flood of emotions this morning. I dropped Allison (6) off at school and on the way to work I just burst into tears. I started thinking that I should have been dropping off Eden (4) also, her little sister we were set to adopt that we lost in 2016...

    Back to no sleep last night. I woke up a dozen times, each time thinking about her. I wish I didn't but it's impossible not to. No contact is the best thing I can do right now. All animosity between us needs to die and I feel like it could take...

    I slept through the whole night last night! For the fourth time in the last year and a half. It may have had something to do with only getting three hours of sleep the night before or it could be, like the last time I actually slept well, I heard news...

    This weekend started out so good. I took the four girls and headed to the beach. We had so much fun... until late Sunday night. We stayed with my sister and the girls and I got back late Saturday night after we went and grabbed a bite to eat. I didn't...

    I'm trying to become completely neutral. I can't keep up this anger. I just can't. I read a quote that said "We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." God I just need to just...

    I just can't do it. I can't communicate with this woman. Ever since I sent her a text telling her I would work on communicating about the children she has texted me things about taxes and car registrations, silly things about the kids shoes, just...

    I woke up at 3:00 in the morning and didn't get back to sleep until about 5:00. The devil was putting an oldie in my head- images of her being intimate with her boyfriend. I guess she's divorced and has every right to do this according to the...

    I barely slept last night. Tossed and turned and I've begun to give up on wondering why. I've slept through the night three days in the last year and a half. How long is this going to continue? It's hard to believe the things that happen in...

    I was told the hardest thing I would have to do is talk to her after all of this. It's true. After I texted her she started bombarding my phone with updates on the kids. Ninety percent of it was things I already knew though. I feel like I regret texting...

    I sent her a text yesterday that said i apologize for not directly communicating with her about the kids and their schedules and that I would try to improve that in the coming weeks. She responded a little while later saying she would appreciate that...

    Traveling back to Chicago today then heading home tomorrow. I'm highly considering moving to some place like Arkansas within the next eighteen months. There is so much drama in my town surrounding me and I need to get away from it. I got a ticket...

    I've been in Searcy, Arkansas for the last couple days on a little spiritual vacation with Kyle. He wanted me to get away from my life for a little bit and experience the world down here. It's been very calm. We are heading to church services...

    Working on forgiveness. I wrote the letter of things she needs to do to help me out. I let her know the exact dates I would be out of town so the girls would be taken care of. It's a start. I typed it because I don't even want her to see my handwriting...

    The feedback yesterday from Josh, Tim, and Sean is priceless. I know and I understand what you guys are saying but I just can't get there. The pain is too intense. The resentment too much. I'm terrified though because I know God requires me to...

    Caleb (17) saw his mom for the first time in months on Monday. She had to give him a ride from his co-op job to the school. She asked him to go eat Chinese with her but he said no he just needed a ride. She promised him the Jetta we have but it's...

    I am trying to just make it through each day and cause no problems but I can't seem to be able to do that. Trinity has been living with me since the last court date to finalize the divorce on June 29, 2018 and last night she was telling me about her...

    No idea what to do anymore. My kids seem as angry as me. The ones that live with me just talk so bad about her, even Nick (15) does whenever I see him. I tell them she is trying her best but they don't want anything to do with her except when she...

    I've been stuck in this grieving process. I'm still so angry! Denial ✔ Anger- Still there Bargaining ✔ Depression ✔ Acceptance- Getting there What this human being did to me has shattered my core. I still can't bring myself to communicate...

    More nightmares. More sleepless nights. I feel like this will never end. Aleigha (11) played us both over the weekend. Saturday she asked me if she could go to a friend's house while I took Trinity (14) shopping and I told her she could. Then she...

    I wanted to go buy a grill yesterday because the kids miss grilling and my wife kept ours. So the girls and I went to get one and ended up eating Chinese, which I don't like very much. I did it for them. We got the grill and headed home, I went for...

    Trinity (14) came home last night after going to an amusement park with my wife. She didn't really say much. A little while later she said Becca (15) texted her and said she was staying at my wife's house. So I went to Becca's room and she...

    I heard a few more rumors about my wife and her boyfriend from Trinity (14) as I suspected I would. Didn't let it bother me this time. I think Josh may have mentioned the other day that she is sinning against God, not me. That's how I looked at...

    I don't know how but this gets worse every day. I take all the advice I get and try to apply it but it gets difficult in certain situations. Yesterday I was having a good day then at about 10:30PM I took Trinity (14) to a friends house to spend the...
