It’s a Steph-anie in the right direction

Hi guys! How are things going? Me, I’m fine as always. A few quick updates then back to work.

I was supposed to go to Comic Con this year but didn’t make it out. My dog hurt his leg. I took him to the vet thinking they will send us home with some pain pills, tell me to restrict his walking/running and that was it. He blew out his frickin’ knee. I don’t know when, I don’t know how. I just know $4500 later it’s fixed. He has 8 to 12 weeks of rehab to go and it’s been very frustrating. I found out if you use a beach towel to help hold up his backside it does make it much easier. You sling it under him and grab it down low in a bunch so you can control his motions with the bad leg. The vet told me to do that. He has a leg brace and a wound that has to be cleaned out twice a day or more if needed. He’s laying around a lot which is very hard for an active dog like him and it’s pinned me to the house for days now. I did miss Comic Con but it’s worth it. I will hit the next Comic Con event and still catch up with my friends there soon. Sorry guys!

What else? Stephanie and I had broken up. She was too controlling and really pushing me into being on the same page as her. I wasn’t there yet, I mean I was getting there, I just wasn’t there….yet. She didn’t want to hear it and gave me an ultimatum. I didn’t like it so I told her and we agreed to end things. It’s been over a month. We have met up a few times and talked a few times. Last night she texted me and said why can’t we just discuss this in length? I had Lindsay to watch the kids so I went over. An hour later we had worked out what happened, what was going on and how things could have been handled better. Essentially she fought me and didn’t throw me away like a piece of trash, so we are going to work it out. Just in time too.

I’m leaving Thursday mid morning to go do Denver for 4 days. I’m checking on my house renovation there to make sure things are good. We are moving there as soon as possible to get the kids settled. My house here will go on the market whenever we are officially and finally moved. I’m keeping my downtown condo in Chicago for when I have to fly in for work stuff but this is the big move. I want to raise my kids close to Alex’s doctors in Denver and I want a change. It’s time.

Stephanie understands all of this and is still willing to work things out. She is open to moving after I’m settled if that is the direction of the relationship. I told her I don’t mind her coming to visit every weekend if she wants but I’m done trying to prove how I feel about things. It was a really good grown up talk. I felt mature after it. Well and then the sex helped too Lol I mean good makeup sex is always worth it. So I don’t know guys. We will see. I’m giving it a chance. I really like her, the kids like her, why not her? We still have over a month before I move so we have time to really dig in and see what we want together. I’m trying.

My poor dog, Bubba is doing his best to be a good patient but he has not patience to be a patient. It’s been very hard. I’m not sleeping much because I’m worried about him so much. Luckily dogs take a million naps a day so I’m finding a balance to rest for an hour or 2 here and there.

The kids summer day camp is almost over with. This is the very last weekend and then I have all 3 of them at home ALL DAY WITH ME. I’m excited and happy. I have all kinds of things I want to go do with them. It’s going to be a very fun summer. I had a ton of travel plans set up but as life goes, I make plans and God says HAHAHAHAHAHA……

How is everyone doing? I’ve gotten the yard all cleaned up today, my bedroom all cleaned up and I’m starting to pack for my 4 day trip.

Denver….here I come!
