Oh hell, not the dreams again!

There has been a lot going on in my life the past few weeks, mostly involving my adult son. It was a serious episode, and his mom (my ex) needed to be involved.   Fortunately, everything is okay with my son, and that’s the best news. But I had a lot of interaction with my ex…

Odd memory

I had the strangest memory pop into my mind this morning.  An acquaintance was asking me about the 5th anniversary of my divorce (which was yesterday).  I know this person from a civic club that we were both involved in. That brought to my mind a memory I had long since forgotten.  I first joined…

Am I a Good Man, part 2

I’m actually doing fairly well.    My new job is going well, I’m getting all my bills paid, and even bought myself a new toy.   For the most part, I’m adapting to those curve balls we call life. A couple of things have me a bit worried.   My son has decided to move to the coast,…

Oh dear, I am a stalker!

Some of my friends have teased me about stalking my ex-wife, but I never really thought it was true…. that is, until the other night. My ex posted some photos around her new living quarters in Las Vegas, and I thought it would be fun to look at those photos, and see if I could…

5 Years today

Today marks the 5th anniversary since I heard those words that I was afraid would be coming. “I don’t want to be married to you any more”. She told me on Sunday.   Then four days later, on Thursday I was laid off from my job.   That night, we went to counseling, and she told the…

Am I a good man?

In season seven of the reincarnation of the BBC hit television series “Dr Who”, The Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi asked Clara Oswald, played by Jenna Coleman if he is a good man. If you are a fan of the Doctor, you will get this… if not, well. I’ve been recently asking myself if I…

So many memories

When people find out I’ve been divorced for almost 5 years, they all ask me why I’m not dating. They don’t understand that I’m just not ready. I was with my ex for 30 years, from the time we dated, until the time she left me. That is over half my life. 3 wonderful decades,…

I got to see her

I had the opportunity last week to see the X one last time before she moves to Las Vegas. I had to make a trip down to where my son lives and since she’s nearby I asked if we could meet. She suggested we meet for breakfast so I made arrangements and we met. It…

There isn’t a day

There isn’t a day that passes that I don’t think about her. I really don’t know what to do anymore.  I try to forget and move on, but all I see is her face.  She is in my dreams every night.  Stupid brain neurons!! I don’t know what has caused this latest mood swing. I’ve…
