This doesn’t happen to me often – going a long period of time without having much at all to say. It’s just that I’ve been very busy trying to get some things in my life sorted out. Mainly, my marriage, which looks like it’s going on hiatus. Our separation will occur around the date of our 9 year wedding anniversary. I find that little tidbit strange.
The separation is amicable and it was a mutual decision. We didn’t fight or anything…we just realized things weren’t what they should be and we need some time to work on our individual selves. The decision was much harder to make because of Jack. Joe and I are both concerned about hurting him and/or depriving him of the stability of a two parent household. Ultimately, we think it’s better to have two healthy single parent households rather than one unhealthy/unhappy two-parent household. I hope we’re right.
