I’m packing all day today. Tomorrow, I move into my parent’s house with the boys. Not where I thought I’d be at 38 years old, but this is for the best. Really sad, but managing to stay optimistic about the future. Also, a weird sense of relief. I think I’ll focus on that one for now.
It’s judgement day!
Our judgement is going to be submitted to the court today. If it’s approved by the judge, I will no longer be a married man. Finally! I can’t wait to move on with my life.
I didn’t go to work today. My parents usually watch the kids while wifey and I are at work, but my mom called this morning and told me that she had taken my dad to the emergency room at 4 AM. He had a kidney stone and was in extreme pain. According to the doctor, passing a kidney stone is nearly as painful as childbirth. My mom told me that his arms and legs were trembling from the pain. This isn’t his first kidney stone rodeo. He’s had these two or three times in the past.
So, 6yo went to school and 3yo and I hung out and had some quality time. It was fun. We went and hung out at Target and Dollar Tree, then we had a nice lunch at Red Robin. Then we went together to pick 6yo up after school. We needed that and I think he appreciated it as much as I did.
My dad is home now and feeling better (although he’s been given morphine and two other painkillers today) and says that he thinks the stone may have passed. …right before he fell asleep on the phone, talking to me. Ha!
I helped my dad lift a 200 lb table saw into his van this morning and apparently I rested on my elbowpits at some point. Now I look like a heroin addict. Also, my eyes are super-bloodshot today because I got up at 3:45 am.
Waiting for 3yo to take a dump. He’s really working at it. He asked me to turn the fan on.
