I took my wedding ring off this evening. I won't be putting it back on. This is not awesome.
What is awesome: the realization that things are going to be ok. My wife will, in 18 months or so, no longer legally be my wife. We're going to act as if it's the case sooner than that. We'll always be partners though, in terms of the continued raising of our child. Both of us grew up with divorced parents who gave us shining examples of how not to do things. Lessons learned, we move on. Sooner than later we'll have to sit our daughter down and explain to her what's happening. ripping her world in half doesn't seem like a good idea, but keeping things as they are is probably worse. Kids aren't stupid and she's no exception. She already gets most of it. It'll be fine. We redefine our family and move on. So much the better.
Sorry to lay this on Sabrespace, but I have no place else at this exact moment...


Very saddened to read that. Wishing you the best getting through this troubling time.

Thanks, Taro. The reason it ended up in the awesome thread, and the thing that I realized extremely recently is that it's not as troubling now as it was yesterday, and things are going to be ok.

You've been hinting at this for a while. Wishing you and your daughter the best.

Been there, done that around 6 years ago with an almost 3 year old son.  Wasn't the easiest transition, but has been for the best.  Happily married to someone for 4 years (today, actually), with a beautiful 2 year old daughter and another kiddo on the way in January.  I'm on decent terms with my ex, and we have joint custody of our son, splitting time 50/50 (week on, week off).  The best advice I can give is to always make sure you're the "stable" parent for your daughter.  If your wife does it too, then your kid will certainly be fine.  But if she doesn't, then you'll be the backbone for her.  I like to think I've been able to do that for my boy.  My ex has really had her ups and downs, but at least what he always has from me is stability and consistency.  That has never wavered.

Insert some not-so-awesome comment on how racism is a thing of the past.

I thought lead paint was out.  Is it back in now?

Hey, with the current EPA it probably is. Bring back leaded gas while we're at it!

Just got back from 4 hrs of roller hockey at the park. First time I've played with more than 1 or 2 people in 2 years. So good. Even worth the hell I'm going through right now as my gall bladder picked today to flare up for the first time in a month. 

 

This scrawny 10 year old came up to the rink in blades with 3 wheels each, and the ruubber completely stripped off the front wheels, and he kicked our ######. We called him Jack Eichel. So cool. That kid's at least making the CHL.

Went to All Greater Rochester awards banquet. My son is an awesome Nordic skier. Great event with Kyle Williams and Jack Eichel. Great interviews by Sal M. Anyway Jack admitted he was proud to be at awards but would rather be in Vegas. You could feel the fire.

I'm going to see a hockey game in Montreal on spring break this season. Was hoping they'd be at home that week, and they are. Bucket list item crossed off.

(Also, obviously, visiting Montreal is pretty cool in and of itself)

Gronk and Pedroia roast Big Papi. Gronk's is pretty funny, but Pedroia's is legitimately one of the greatest things I've ever heard. His starts at around the 8:30m mark
