Vacation!!!!!!


Ahhhh...my first vacation in over a year. Of course it will be a busy one. Going to Kentucky to pick my brother up and bring him home. Hopefully for good. Then the pre wedding stuff starts when I get back.

My daughter is getting married next weekend and I have all sorts of little loose ends to help tie up. I guess there was one advantage of remaining friends with their mother, even after the divorce. The've included me in a lot of the planning and that made me feel good...of course daddy had a little money stashed back so that never hurts, but I put it back for exactly that purpose.

I'm actually on good terms with her stepdad also. I have to give him his due. He has been good to my kids. He had as much of a hand in raising them as I did. He was very understanding when he moved them six hours away to St Louis by accepting a job there. I had everyother weekend visitation with them back then so it kinda killed that, but I did make the trip up there at least once a month and sometimes twice a month. When I was short on money he would let me stay at their house. Wasn't the most comfortable of situations, but we made it work for the kids.

I went to two high school graduations up there and the birth of one grandaughter. I kinda actually enjoyed my trips up there. They have some great wineries up there and I'm a road hog anyway. Drop in a CD and set the cruise...

Point is he is a good guy, so I figure since I have to wear a tux, he has to also. I asked him to help me walk my daughter down the isle. I figured it was the right thing to do, under the circumstances. Needless to say, my daughter loved the idea. I have an alterior motive though. I know that I'm going to have a hard time seeing about then. I'm going to need someone else to help guide me down the isle...

That is so cool. I commend you for being able to let her stepfather in with your roll. What a wonderful dad you are.
