Re: I Abandoned my Cheating Wife

Sorry about your Mom.

I would have handled the contact with Ex the same way. It would have been a little cruel not to tell her under the circumstances.

Death doesn't care about who you are or what you have done. Classy is putting aside differences when someone is sick or dies. You did the right thing.

Take care of yourself and your family.

Re: I Abandoned my Cheating Wife

Thank you everyone for your kind condolences. My mom had been suffering from a debilitating bone disease for many years. It had gotten bad the last coue of years to where she could barely walk or take care of herself. I like to think she's with my dad now in a better place. I like to think of them up in heaven sitting at a table doing those 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles that they loved doing together.

My WW emailed me back this morning and thanked me for telling her.

BB,

I am sorry about your mom. How is everything else progressing? Working through the healing?

Every day gets better. I'm working long hours and that keeps my mind busy. On days off I work around the ranch here and if I have any spare time I'll piddle with my knives. I'm forge welding a cable Damascus hunting knife right now. I've never made one before. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

My wife's email to me was what I expected. She apologized again and stated she wished things had not turned out the way they had. On the plus side, she says her NA meetings are going well and she is setting up a halfway house/ treatment center to go to after her release so she won't be homeless. My stepson and his girlfriend cleaned the house out and put all her belongings in a con-ex.

As for me, I miss her less each day. Moving on.

Re: I Abandoned my Cheating Wife

BB I'm so sorry about your mom. But I agree, she is in a much better place now. I'm just sorry that you have gone through so much in the last six months. Losing your marriage and then your mom....it's gotta be the worst year of your life.

Take it one day at a time like you have been doing. Keep moving, keep breathing.

Re: I Abandoned my Cheating Wife

BB, I am sorry about your mom.

Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.

Well yes, I do hope to eventually. Right now I'm just in the re-learning phase. Going through all my old notebooks and books and re-teaching myself. Right now my knives are not sale quality. I don't want to sell anything that I would not want to take into the field myself. Someday someone who buys a knife from me may find themselves in a dire situation where the strength and performance of the knife I made may mean the difference of them surviving or not. It's important to me to do it right. Until then, I'll just give the early ones away as stocking stuffers with the caveat "not for rough use". LOL!

Re: I Abandoned my Cheating Wife

Found some old momentous of my mom this evening and had myself a good man-cry. Felt good.

Re: I Abandoned my Cheating Wife

It's been a very hard year for you BB I hope next year is as good as this year has been bad. It's hard when you lose a parent.
