I'm baaaack!

I'm going to try to start posting again.. this one probably won't contain my usual, highly sought after wit because I'm just going to update..

So, after 8 years of marriage, 3 children, owning 2 homes and moving 4 or 5 times my husband has decided that he no longer wants to be married. Now, he doesn't like me to blame it on him and I'm not giving him all the fault for the marriage not working out but he IS the one who decided to call it quits. So that IS his fault. I tried to get us to go to counseling, etc, etc... but he's just done. Which is sad, very very sad. But I am OK!

I have my own place now in Hedgesville, WV. We moved up here right before he decided to end the marriage. Its a really nice townhouse with FOUR bathrooms.. yes I know, its crazy. Nobody needs 4 bathrooms but nevertheless I have them, they are there, and one of them is filthy because I pretend it doesn't exist. Its too many bathrooms to clean, plain and simple.

I am going to school full time, taking 18 credit hours this semester, in persuit of a degree in Nursing. I'll be graduating, God willing, in the fall of 2012.

Jason and I are trying split custody of the kids where we swap weeks with them. I am not crazy about this plan.. ok I don't like it one little bit. But as far as I can read and can tell, this is the best arrangement for the kids. They will have equal (or relatively equal) time with each parent. I do believe that my kids need their dad. Although I'm not the most feminine girl you've ever met I don't want my boys to become pansy asses who bake cakes and sew their own clothes--well, they can do that but I don't want it to be their major ambition in life.. well... its ok with me if it is. BUT they need to learn to do manly stuff that I don't like to do, like hunt. And gut fish. And mow the grass. Because I'm darn tired of mowing the grass. Whats the minimum age you can put your son behind a lawn mower?

Anyway. So thats a little update. I'll try and post something witty tomorrow. And a picture because nobody likes picture-less blogs.

I'm glad you're doing well, and I've enjoyed reading your blog.

I hope the split-custody arrangement continues to work for you and Jason. As you know, Kristi and I have had Jenn back-and-forth for over 5 years and it's worked well for everyone involved. I agree, the boys need their Dad, just as much as they need their Mom. Have they met Greg?

I hope you're well. It was good to see you on Thanksgiving.


Your BIG/little Brother,

Stephen
