Dear Dale

Dear Dale,

You have treated my daughter and I with kindness that I would have never expected.  While you were married to my sister, Suz’s, highschool best friend, I had never met you.  Even, your cousin, Joey Keefer, was my friend and neighbor.  Was that confusing?

Joey and I chatted about you and he put in very good words for.  “It’s amazing he’s alive!” he said.  “I remember when we were kids and he was hit by that car.  He turned out to be a great guy.”

I told Joey about meeting you and how you are helping me get settled in.  He said, “That doesn’t surprise me.  Dale’s like that to people he feels close to.”

I am like that with people I care about, and I care about you very much.  You are a brave man not only for wanting to be involved in helping me with life, but wanting to be in my life.  Unfortunately, there is a rather large problem.  I can’t get divorced from John, or at least that is how it feels.  This divorce issue has been dragging my life out for too long.

What I can do, is show my daughter the proper way to build a relationship.  My answer to your question “if you could marry me, would you?” is yes.  I would.  That’s the great news!! 🙂   The bad news is, I actually have to wait until I’m divorced.  So while I’m waiting, and paying my rent, we have time to get to know each other.

Right now honey, you are the sweetest man I ever met and don’t get frustrated when I keep you from helping me even more.  I can do this, but I appreciate your help.  Maybe in less than a year we could move in together, we just have to be patient!

Not “John’s Good Girl” for much longer, (especially if I agree to get that covered up by your tattoo friend)




POLL-how long should people date before introducing kids?

Was just a matter of time

I wondered how long it would take.  I finally got a text letting me know he read my blog.  Jhole not to happy, but I told him he can get his own blog site.  I have been relatively silent for the past how many years now.  Waiting for my life to be freed up.  Tonight I called to talk to Tesla and who answers the phone but the newest girlfriend, Heather.  Why would she even want to talk to me?  I have nothing to say to her.  Yet, I hang up on her after she refuses to let me speak to Tess or John  and she calls me.  She even walked outside so she could hear.  Guess they were out spending her money,  as John doesn’t have any.   John thrives on this drama.  Court should be interesting.  Maybe his most recent girl will tag along.

Why does my daughter have to see this parade of women?  How long should a person date before meeting their children?  I think I need to take a poll…

This makes it easy.  I just write about what is going on and Jhole can read it.  He always wants to know what’s going on anyway…
