The votes are in

We all voted today and have decided to go home on Monday. We may leave late Sunday evening so my kids can sleep the whole way. We won’t have to quarantine when we get home since we’ve been in quarantine since March 12th.

When I get home I’m going to have to figure out a lot of things really fast.

I’m glad for the time we have all had here. We are going to have a great weekend. I am ready to be home. This has been a wild experience.

We are leaving Friday to move, no we’re not

I took the boys to school today so they can say goodbye to their friends. I am already to move, everything is done and packed and we are leaving tomorrow morning. I was going to wait until this weekend but I decided against it. Why wait when we are ready? I do have a lot of things to get done once we are home and I want to get started. I told the kids this weekend we were going home and they are happy. Alex’s appointment went very well. We can fly him home, FINALLY. I’m so happy he is okay. Sarah is flying out tonight after work so she can fly back with me and take care of the kids. I’ve already made arrangements for all of our stuff to get picked up in the morning, very early and shipped back home. I’m literally taking the clothes on our back with us on the flight home. Everything else, clothes, toys, kitchen things will be at our house by Thursday. We have plenty of things at home to wear and use.

The girls have worked very hard getting the house ready. I saw it on Facetime this weekend and it looks like our home again. I can’t wait to sleep in my bedroom. MY ROOM. Not the room with all the kids stuff, toys, and clothes all over the floor. I can finally have my spacious and quiet room back. It’s just going to be very hard because we are missing someone in our family. That’s a lot of the reason we stayed away for a while to be honest. Too hard.

Jen and I officially ended our relationship. I took her out for a nice dinner, we talked about the zero chance of a long distance thing and we kissed/hugged goodbye a few times. We are going to be friends. We will still talk and text but I’m single. I’m very happy to be single. I am not ready for anything serious and I’m not even sure I want to start dating right away. I think this time, let her find me. Whoever God wants me to be with will find her way into my life somehow. I have too much going on.

The boys will start at their new school/daycare place on Monday. Still 2 hours a day in the mornings and the occasional Friday of no school. It’s going to be hard for them to  understand but we will adjust.

How is everyone doing? Enjoy these last few months of summer, guys. it’s almost over with!

 

What time is it? Get in the truck

We are back in Colorado Springs. I told everyone last night we are leaving early in the morning. I needed to make sure Alex would sleep the whole way and he did. That was one of my better ideas. I got the luggage loaded, the kids loaded and had to peel one of my nannies out of bed Lol In that order. Thank you Denver for a great family reunion. I’m over it.

This morning I have to hit the grocery stores, start getting laundry going and figure out all of the boys school stuff. I also need to drive them over there so they know where it is and what playground stuff they have. They keep asking me if they get to play outside. I have no idea. On their first day we get to go through the whole 2 hours with them to figure it all out. I’m happy to see how their day will go. I need to ask if they ever get to go outside to play. I probably should write that down.

So we are back! Yay us. And everyone is sleeping still Lol I am working on my grocery list then I’m going to make breakfast and get to the store. I have a lot of things I need and want to get done today so it will be pretty busy.

Have a great weekend, guys!

January 25th, 2018, We’re Pregnant!

  Guess who got his wife knocked up? This guy! I guess all that sex did the trick Lol For a little while now my wife and I have been trying to get pregnant. She really wanted a baby before she turned 30, before we moved to Paris, and before we sold the condos. This is how it went.

We both knew we were having unprotected sex on purpose (A lot of sex) and we both had long discussions about when to start trying. We haven’t even been married a year yet. However, as she pointed out numerous times I’m old(er) and I need to get going. Real nice, babe. She hasn’t been feeling very well and I had suspected something was up but I wasn’t sure. She took a home pregnancy test on Thursday night without my knowledge. Then she made her sister come over and her sister brought another one. Again without my knowledge. Next thing I know she calls me into the bedroom and shoves her sister out. Her sister was BEAMING so I knew something was up. She handed me the little stick and I looked at it then dropped it and hugged her. I think I scooped her up then put her back down. I gave her a really long kiss and started crying. Then we both started crying and laughing. It was literally one of the best moments of my life. She had already made a doctor’s appointment for herself for Friday since she hadn’t been feeling well. She told me she probably just needed a B12 shot so I didn’t realize it was to check to see if she really was pregnant. That stick thing said she was.

On Friday we went to her appointment and it’s true. We have a baby on board! I did it! I got my wife pregnant! I said does this mean I don’t get to have copious amounts of sex with you anymore and she said not as much but you will get rewarded until I get fat and sweaty Lol This is her first pregnancy and we are so excited. We went to her parents house last night and had all of her family there for the big announcement. They thought we were going to tell them something else so when she took off her jacket and had on a shirt that said We’re Pregnant her whole family wrapped us up in a giant group hug and started hugging her, high-fiving me, and really being happy for us. It was so great to be supported and loved. Her dad already pulled me aside to tell me if I ever hurt his daughter and grandbaby, etc Lol I know, I know. That won’t happen. I’m completely in love with my wife and my bad choices and really stupid arrogance days are over. Well not completely but I am making better decisions since being married.

Can you believe it! I’m going to be a dad x 4. I only wish my son Ryan could be apart of all of this. You know if he had lived he would be 14 years old. Wow. That just blows my mind. And by the time my wife has the baby she will be almost the same age I was when Ryan passed away. God takes life and gives life. It’s such a gift. A beautiful, heartbreaking, but wonderful gift.

Everyone keeps asking what we want. We both want a girl. Of course we just want a happy baby and we’re happy to have anything we get but we both said we want a little girl.

As for the adoption, we are full steam ahead on that. We have decided to start the search (again) and really put in a heartfelt decision to adopt. I think my wife wants to adopt a little girl that’s a little older than my boys. I’m fine with that. I think that would be awesome. I had always just assumed it would be a baby but that would make it a lot easier for sure. I called my adoption attorney and she called the service. We are going to adopt this summer. I don’t know when. I assume a regular adoption still takes, what, 12 to 24 months? Sooner because I have already done a kinship adoption? I really don’t know. I know it will be a lot of waiting. As far as I’m concerned the more kids the better. I love kids. My wife loves kids. She is so excited. I went out Friday after work and bought her a very expensive, very blingy diamond necklace from an exclusive jewelry store downtown. I needed something big and I don’t usually spend that much but this is a big moment and I wanted to make sure she sees how much I love her and our new baby already. She opened it up and started crying. She loves it. I just put up the photos from the past few days. Our pregnancy stick, the t-shirt my wife had on. My wife in the t-shirt. Our ultrasound. And me kneeling down kissing my baby. It’s a classic pose but effective.

Thank you all for the great Facebook love. I appreciate all of the comments. My family found out by calls, texts, or via Facebook. My phone has been flooded with messages and I’m so glad that everyone important to me is really happy. I knew this would happen. I didn’t know when but I just knew.

My wife is pregnant! Help me! Lol Oh boy are we going to get the full on pregnancy stuff this time. Last time I wasn’t allowed to go to any doctor’s appointments, nothing. I got ultrasound photos and that was all. I could ask my cousin, the birth grandmother, questions about things but that’s all I could do. It was very, very difficult.

Lindsay Fed-Ex’ed me a big bucket of pickles last night so she said they should be getting here today. She is so excited and already told me if she doesn’t get to be a godparent again she’s disowning all of us Lol I don’t know about that one. I think my wife has a few sisters or brothers already wanting to fight for that title. Drew laughed and said congrats bro, wait until you get the 2am nudge to get up and go get something for her. That doesn’t really happen, does it? I mean why would she get hungry at 2am? That’s just in movies. He’s funny though.

I can’t wait to see my wife’s little belly grow. I can’t wait to meet our new baby! I’m really excited about the whole thing. I really did get all I ever wanted from life. I went through heck to get here but it was worth it. I’m so happy right now. I wouldn’t change one thing.

We’re having a baby! 2018 is going to be an awesome year!

And the winner is…

My battle vs the bullies hasn’t concluded but we dealt 2 of the 3 some very bad news. They will be finding out very soon. Their employers are not happy at all with all of the info we provided. That sucks. And they need to grow up and move on with their lives. I’m very happy with the results and will continue to do something to finish off the Trinity.

Thanks to Lindsay and her brilliant ideas we accomplished all of this a lot faster than I thought. I swear she has friends all over. Thank goodness people remember her easily. She is hilarious with a big mouth I guess she leaves an impression. I’m so happy to know things will finally calm down. I can be proud for standing up for myself and the rest will play itself out. So happy for this weekend.

In other news my in-laws found a house. My wife isn’t thrilled with its location. She wanted it a little closer but it’s okay. They love it. They love the yard, they love the kitchen. It’s a 3 bedroom. One bedroom will be their office they can share. They are very excited and I’m happy to help them downsize. Anything for my wife’s family. They are great people. Hard working, loyal, dysfunctional, loud, hungry all of the time, amazing people. I love them all even when there is no food left and you can’t get in a word to someone sitting across from you. Big family, big meals together.

I’m happy that our weekend turned out so well. Lindsay is heading back to Las Vegas and she has a lot to fill me in on soon. I’m happy to go cook dinner for my family and play with my baby boys before we get them into baths then bed.

Thanks to the trolls that sent us all of the info. The video links are what did it. You can’t dispute video proof when you are trying to prove 2 crazy woman are stalking you and several others. Now go back to leaving us alone. We don’t want you bugging us anymore.

Have a great Sunday everyone. I hope you relax and enjoy the rest of your evening!

March 1, 2015

I have known Meri before all of this started publicly. We had talked back and forth but it was the night of the Divorce episode, last season’s finale show that we began talking so people noticed. We began talking on Twitter. Then she followed me on Twitter and we began Direct Messaging. Here are the public tweets that I sent out that day. This is from my Twitter archive. We did not start Direct Messaging each other until March 2nd. I have all of those too.

With twitter you have to read from the bottom up. Sorry about that format but that’s how it archived.
