Blocked!!

Ooh, that darn writer’s block! I’m finally seeing my therapist, and she has a writing assignment for me, but every time I sit down to do my “homework”, all I can do is think about my ex wife.  I’m supposed to be concentrating on my past failure in a relationship, but I’m stuck 6.5 years…

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…

It’s been four years

Four years ago today my world as I knew it ended. Yeah, pretty strong words. We walked in to the Dallas County Courthouse, met my lawyer then went before the judge. In ten minutes, it was done. We were no longer husband and wife, but two ordinary people. We left the courthouse and she walked…
