Day 104 Who’s that Ghost

16 04 2013

Well I can still get mad. I’ve been working with the City of Dallas to get a permit for about 4 weeks now. Lets just say that having a job like that is great because customer service goes out the window and they don’t mind making you wait. I waited 6 hrs in the past two days and today I told someone. I wasn’t an ass but I wasn’t Mr. Rogers either. I never understand why someone has to get upset for something to happen. Oh well!

I ve had a lot of time to reflect in the past two days about my daughter’s baptism. I’m so happy and proud of her. She asked me today why I cried when I was about to baptize her and I explained how I had let her down and the mistakes I had made. The fact that she was sitting in the water was no only a testament to her but how far I had come as her dad. She looked at me and said dad you never let me down and if you did I forgot. Well to know that she doesn’t recall or that she was being nice is something I will remember forever.

Who was that Ghost sitting next to me tonight. I remember her smile, her smell and sound of her voice but I couldn’t recall. I carried on a conversation with her but she felt like someone I used to know. I sat there and watched the other kids and my daughter play their instruments and horse around and watched my son talk to her and sit in her lap and I couldn’t remember who the ghost was. I left the area not in a physical way but mentally and really tried to remember and wondered what in the hell happened. I then snapped back and it was ex-wife sitting next to me. She was a ghost to me. It honestly felt like I knew her at some point in my life but couldn’t place her. It was very odd but as the song goes “Its somebody I used to know” I know it means that I’m only getting healthier and healthier within myself but to know that you can spend 14 years with someone and its like they just disappeared. It does help us to get along better because it’s just we are two random folks that happen to have to be on the same page to raise our kids.

I never believed in Ghost but they are real.

Surviving the affair....the cheaters perspective

I cheated. Yip I did it, I am not proud of it, but that won't change a thing. This is my story of me trying to survive one day at a time. No guarantees....
