36 years ago today TheWife and I were married. If you have been with me for awhile, you know that we were seperated for three years. Now back together for two, I’m mixed on how I feel. Without going into great detail because of the time I have right now, I remembered yesterday, forgot this morning.
No gifts exchanged due to money matters. I’m wondering what I would have done if that wasn’t an issue.
Well, I running out of time…maybe I will finish this later.
I have more to share…
On Our 34th Wedding Anniversary…
Today is the 34th wedding anniversary for my wife and I.
There was nothing special.
She actually forgot…that surprised me.
We are not the same couple that fought the battles of the past. Don’t let the picture indicate fights between us…just the struggles of marriage.
We seem to have risen above that level of communication.
Of course even before we separated, we didn’t argue much.
The three years apart doesn’t seem to have any affect on how we live as a family. In fact, things are better than before.
Will there be a rekindling of the hearts?
To be honest?…I have no idea. I’m just taking this one day at a time. We have a lot going on here and there are other things of priority that need to be addressed.
I’m not sure where to begin…I’ve started this thing four times already.
The drive…the friends…the aches and pains…or the need for more sleep.
Well, Reg and I got the majority of the truck loaded Saturday night. There were just the last minute items that seemed to take forever to finish on Sunday.
Sunday morning we all head off to church. New Life Worship Center. It had been…oh gosh…I believe at least five years since we were all there together.
It was as if we had never left.
There were some people in the church who knew we were coming that morning and we figured the word had gotten out, but to our surprise, the ones who knew must have kept it to themselves. The look on the faces as we walked in were priceless…really priceless. As we began to find a place to sit, we were greeted with handshakes and hugs.
As I sat in the pew, listening to the singing, memories began to flood my mind with the moments I had enjoyed when we attended…the worship, the fellowship…that too is priceless.
It still has that at home feel to it. It was really nice to catch up with what’s going on in the lives of those you haven’t seen in years. They were having their Christmas program and a dinner afterward.
I Made The Call
So I make the call after my post last night and I do small talk, checking to see if the packing is almost done and getting things finalized.

It will be nice.
I bet you can’t wait to see pictures…
You’re Kidding Me, Right?
I know it’s too early, but I’m sitting here about ready to call it a night and you know how they do the weather bytes…well we’ve got snow on the way. A twelve hour trip is turning into an even longer one.
I was hoping that we would at least have a stretch of dry pavement. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
At least I know ahead of time and not going to be blindsided.
Gotta go now, I have a phone call to make.
A Peaceful Calm

With the change that is quickly rushing into my life, I find myself at peace, a calm.
The only thing I’m dreading is the physical part of the move. I’m liking that less these days…must be an age thing.
I have been in touch with the wife and things are heading in this direction as planned.
I think it is time for me to start a dialog with the wife. I believe it is important that we know what is going on concerning this move, because this is more than just a move; I’m aware of that and that may be why I’m at ease….not really sure.
Thus I deem it necessary to at least bring the subject into the air. We will have time to talk before I get there, and on the ride home.
I will admit that I have short moments when I feel like this…
But they pass…that’s just nervousness…and understandably so. We will not have been this close together in almost three years.
I have a lot of emotions and questions coming at me.
I find my self dropping a lot of scenarios into many of the questions, and coming up with as many answers, if not more.
But still, I feel no pressure.
We’ll see what happens in the coming days…I’ll keep you posted.
Stranger Things Have Happened

There’s a move that is about to happen. I knew of this move for some time now.
The move is happening in less than two weeks.
I had posted back on the 17th of August about my separation from my wife.
I knew she wanted to be close to the grandkids and she had made plans to make the move whenever possible. Well, it’s happening in a little over a week.
So the wife and my son are moving to Virginia Beach.
The strange part is that the original plan was for the wife and son to get there own place. Now all of that has changed. Now, Charles and Darcel will be getting there own place and the wife and son will be moving in with me.
This is where it get’s interesting. Ever since we knew the move was on we had been talking and getting things rolling. But we didn’t know until 2 days ago that they would be moving in with me.
I’m ok with the move, it’s just gonna be kinda weird, neither one of us has brought up reconciliation and this is a three bedroom. I think that was the one thing that was mentioned….by me.
Yes, I am wondering if this is the time for talk. Is it something I can avoid if I so choose. Being in close quarters it’s bound to happen…don’t you think?
Stranger things have happened.
My Heart is telling me this can be fixed.
Do I believe in my own Heart?
Stranger things have happened….
A Break and More of Me
I have decided that I needed a break. I need to stop for a moment and gather my thoughts and give my mind and body time to rest.
I have had a lot going on these past few weeks but I did promise to reveal some things about me. So here we go.
