Actually, they do give nice discounts on the rooms. The last time I went, we got a very nice room at the Grand (old name, now Harrah's) for about $50 per night on the weekend. It's cheaper through the week. Normally, that room goes for about $200 per night. The requirement was only 4 hours of play in the poker room. They have shuttles to take you from the hotel to the casino also. No DD even needed!
How do you like my new home? Who needs a house? Give me a poncho, fishing equipment, a gun and some ammo, and a knife and I'm good. lol Who cares how the divorce works out financially. I lived out of a tent for months in the desert. I don't require too much.
Another best day ever, according to the kids. I found out the Kentucky Headhunters were going to be at a local festival tonight. We went and had a ball. I used to have a cassette tape of them and danced to several of their songs in the clubs years ago. My girls danced in front of the stage tonight. The singer mentioned them a couple of different times. The guitar players handed them picks. I danced the sweetheart schottice (sp?) with my daughter to one of their songs. One of them reached out and shook my hand at the end of the song saying the dancing was awesome. Afterward, we got autographs and talked to them. I had a friend with a booth, so I went to help him a little. When we came back by, the band was getting a picture with someone. We asked that they enthusiastically agreed to a picture with my kids. Not only did they get autographs, they got a picture with just them and the band. It was pretty awesome!
The kids are great. If it wasn't for me, they wouldn't have seen the concert. If it wasn't for the kids, I never would have shaken the hands of the men in the band and talked to them. We all had an absolute blast.
I wonder how their mother's phone conversation with loverboy across the country tonight compared?
I'm not worried about the money. I could live just fine in a tent. Don't worry, I will have acceptable accomodations for my time with the kids. Just a tent on my nights alone, lol.
Thursday night in the 'Boro looking good for anyone? Whiskey Dix opens at 7:00. Free long necks til 11:00. I'll be at the back corner pool table around 7:30 or so with a long neck Bud (and hopefully with a long - legged blond, lol).
lol. Brunettes are welcome as well! I was just thinking about you this morning. It's been a while and I was wondering how you were doing. I hope everything is going well for you. Still on the farm or did you get an apartment? Have you filed yet? I think last time we talked you were waiting on something to go through.
No, I haven't filed yet. I'm not in a big rush. It doesn't really matter to me what is on paper. She emotionally divorced me long ago. I feel the same way. I want to get the ball rolling, but I don't want to talk to her. I also don't want to blow a few grand on attorneys. Like I said, I'm not in a hurry. I'm happy with the custody split as it is right now. As long as I'm seeing my kids as much as possible, I don't care about any of the rest. Those details will work themselves out. I'm also trying to decide on the best thing to do with the house. I have been working on it to make it more ready to sell.
I have had a facebook account for years, but never did anything with it. No pictures, only some of her family as friends, etc. I started adding things this weekend. My daughter had some pics on her digital camera and we added them. Actually, my avatar is from there as well. It was one weekend at the river my daughter took a picture of our little setup. When we got ready to go to the festival Saturday night, my daughters both said, "I like that shirt, Daddy. You look good in it." I said, OK, let's take a picture in this for my facebook profile. We did. I've started adding friends and looking up some folks. My sister-in-law's husband is part owner of a liquor store in town. The store is one of my friends. There are quite a few attractive women that pop up on the possible friends where we have the liquor store as a common friend.
Anyway, yes, I am starting to get a life again. It does feel good. I'm not interested in a relationship anytime soon, but it is fun to get out.
perhaps you aren't in a hurry to get divorced, but you should file for legal separation just to protect yourself so you won't be liable for her debts, etc. I know you say that you don't care about money, but what's to stop her from charging tons of money on credit cards for her weekends with Pillsbury and then sticking you with the bill?

I thought this might sound like a male chauvinist point of view that "kept my woman in line by making sure she didn't have any credit". No, she had credit cards over the years. She just went right through to the limit and beyond. She thought Buzz Lightyear said, "To the limit and beyond!!!!" and took it to heart. lol The zero credit is from her habits, not me being controlling.
