For an unemployed bum, I seem to be pretty busy. I have sent out several resumes this week. I have not had many interviews, and the ones I did have, all hired someone else. I have enrolled in two different schools. The one closer to my house does not have the classes I need often enough. The one that does, is further away. Grrrr.
My life is mostly stable. My relationship with K is pretty good. I'm even getting allog well with AJ. I relationship with T is going well, even though I don't get to see him as often as I want.
I have good days and bad days dealing with the uncertainty of going back to school without a plan for how I will support myself. Somedays I feel really zen about it, sure that it will all work out somehow. Other days I am freaked because I am diving in without a clear plan.
I think I should be writing here more often, but I seems like there is not a lot to say. There is not a lot of movement. There is not a lot of drama. So there is not much interesting going on so there is not much interesting to write about. I don't want this to become a whining blog (anymore than it already is)
There are some milestones coming up. My divorce will be final in 17 days. I am thinking of selling my house and moving into a small apartment. In 2 years when I start PA school, I may have to move again. The school is almost an hour and a half from my house. I will probably have to find something closer, but not too far from my kids.
I am gay man in his 40's who was married for 18 years to a straight woman, who is still my very best friend. We have 4 children together. She is now remarried and we still want to be supportive of each other and make a stable family for our kids.
