I realized something that has profoundly changed the way I look at and feel about my pending #divorce

This may sound totally weird but whatever.  I haven’t spoken much about my looming divorce lately, largely because I don’t always like remembering the past and the process itself has sorta stalled.  

I know it’s frustrating for some to read that this still isn’t done with and trust me when I say, I’m frustrated as well.

To be fair, I haven’t made it a priority because it’s largely out of sight and out of mind.… Read More

Today brings a significant change to the boys visitation with their Mom

We have a pretty big change happening today in regards to the boy’s visitation with their Mom. It may seem minor to some but for three kids on the Autism Spectrum, it’s a really big change and I’m hoping they do alright with it.

Something came up that required the adjustment of the boys every other Wednesday dinner with their Mom and Grandparents. 

Rather than just kill the visit and avoid the shake up, we decided to at least semi-permanently move the day from Wednesday to Friday. … Read More

Divorce: I think I’m finally getting to a good place

It’s been a long time coming but I’m cautiously optimistic that I’m finally getting my footing since the sudden collapse of my marriage.  This doesn’t mean that I’m over everything but it does mean that I may have actually reached a milestone. 

My wife and I have been separated since October 14, 2014.

It’s taken me a long time to process everything and find myself in a place that I’m beginning to feel like everything is going to be okay. 

Over the last couple of weeks, our relationship seems to have become much more positive, in the sense that there’s open communication, which was sorely lacking and yet absolutely vital to any type of parenting team.  I can’t explain how much easier this makes life.… Read More

#Autism and #Divorce: My son won’t sleep for 36 hours or more after a visitation

I want to take a few minutes and get you caught up on a couple things before getting back to the challenges of my day. 

First of all, Emmett didn’t sleep last night, in what’s becoming the status quo for his first night home after an overnight stay with his Mom.  I don’t think this has anything to do with anyone doing anything wrong during these rather brief visits. 

The reality is that Emmett is struggling more and more with this whole situation.… Read More

Divorce: Yes, I’m hurting and confused but I’m not angry

Please understand that I’m using this post to help me process some very complicated feelings and emotions.  This all just kinda came to the surface as I was trying to fall asleep and I’m desperately hoping that purging will help me find some peace.  This isn’t about blame or anger, it’s about trying to simply understand why something happened, so I can learn from it and move forward….Read More
