My timeline? I would have told you we crossed it years ago. I just refuse to be without my kids. We all know fathers lose out. Even part-time parenting doesn't work for me. My kids are my raison d'etre, my everything. However, being this frustrated and miserable doesn't set a good example for them.
How old are your children?

I continue to do all those things you mentioned.
I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. Be honest about it.
