In the end.

Dear Jason, Today my greatest fears have come true. Today your mother and i split up. This hurts me in a way that i have never been hurt before…. i am in so much pain, so I may ramble a bit, and this letter may be hard to understand at times but i am going to try and explain what has happened these last few months. In October of last year i found out your mother had been having an affair with her old boss. the affair lasted a month after i found out… with your mother repeatedly assuring me that it was over. In November we sent you to stay with your grandmother in Florida, to sort of… separate you from the hostility in the house. Then shortly after you left I found out she was still seeing hr old boss. I found out at 3am… and by 3:30 i was in my truck on my way to Florida to be with you. I spent about 4 days in Florida… the day after your mothers birthday she told me that she had made a mistake, she said that she wanted us to work things out… she wanted me to come home. so I did. It;s important that you know something… before i found out your mother had been cheating, we had never had a fight. Not one argument… things were peachy. once i got home the fighting began, we had some couples counseling… and that seemed to help for awhile, but deep down i had a lingering feeling that she was still seeing someone. There were some odd...

Our babysitter called in sick today, which forced me to stay home from work and watch the kids.

The last few weeks have gone by in a blur. No work and all play… i have been staying home most days: finishing random projects that should have been completed months ago. Melissa decided that we needed a new roof… so we had a red tin roof installed. Then she thought our door needed to match the roof… so we painted the front door red… then we painted the roof of the out building to match the roof of the house. Now our yard is completely color coordinated… which is good… I guess. After that was done and I finally had the chance to sit down and rest, Melissa calmly explained to me that I was no longer a bachelor, and that a desk supported by phone books and bibles with two computers, a TV, and 6 video game consoles stacked on top of it just wasn’t going to fly anymore. So I went out and got enough stuff to build two desks, two bookcases, and an end table. I fashioned myself a nice L shaped desk with a bookcase holding 9 video game consoles and a TV, three sets of drawers, and a glass stand for my laptop. I wired the TV to a Nintendo, Super Nintendo, N64, Genesis, Dreamcast, Atari 2600, Atari 5200, IntelliVision, and a Playstation 2. I built Melissa a smaller desk for her laptop and …um… bill paying supplies, a bookcase and side table. Now our office area looks new modern and fresh…. except for one thing: My Computer. Sitting on top of all this new modern furniture is a half open PC and...
