Hey all. I have not been on in a long time. I pop in for a minute every three months or so.

I loved our get together last summer at the Big Boy.

Ok - a very abbreviated synopsis -
I have healed.
Ex is still stupid - moved her BF in after we de-cohabited in April 07. He is still there.
I must be stupid too - i waited to file to terminate SS until now.
She recently filed to get sole legal custody, and to prohibit me from talking to the kids about moving back home. (East Texas)
I am responding with some, er, facts about the EX, and why she is unfit to be in charge of the kids. I have a pretty solid case. First week in October. (feel free to pray for the judge)
I lost my job in June this year. We moved to SoCal for that job, and now she does not want to return home. (all of our parents are there, except her father) I have only found small jobs since then, and am sinking.
I have several job opportunities in Texas/East Texas.
I fell in love.
Last summer I visited an old friend who was dealing with a serial cheater. She divorced him – our friendship grew deeper. Then we fell. (yes – that one)(she lives in East Texas)
We plan on blending our families. We are giving her kids time to heal and acclimate. My kids already love her.

SD – Chrisner – hope you guys are well. Chrisner – your posts indicate you are good. I love to hear that. SD – I have not read much of yours lately. Are you healing well? Lets get a beer, eh?

How are the fruits and nuts doing?

Faith – Believer – HI!!!!

WAT – Graycloud – everyone else – HI!!!!!

chime in if you want.

Congratulations, FAR! Glad to hear about your new reason. Sorry you are still dealing with an idiotic wayward.

Will you be moving to Texas?

I inch closer to recovery all the time. I've passed the bottom on the change curve and have started moving up the other side. It's slow. I'll live.

Nice to hear about recovery. Beer sounds good.

Our group photo from Big Boy popped up on my screen saver yesterday! I often wonder how you are. You sound good and your ex still sounds like a selfish wayward. I am sorry your kids are exposed to her live-in BF. It is just so wrong. Keep in touch!
