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,…

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…
