I told you that last Monday was the official court date when K and I would be officially divorced. I was told by my lawyer that it happened as planned, but until today I could not prove it. I got the official paperwork today. So now it is done. I need to go back and update the header on the blog to reflect my new single status. (Except I am not really single, am I)
Thanksgiving is coming up and this will be different from years past. Lat year, you may remember, I was home with the kids and K was on a cruise with AJ. My parents were here with me and the kids.
This year I am divorced. I talked to my mother this afternoon and I think she was worried that I might be spending Thanksgiving alone. I am actually going to be having a busier holiday than usual.
I will be going to K's house in the first half of the day. She is roasting a turkey in the oven and AJ is deep frying an second one. K has planned to eat in the early afternoon.
After that, I will be going to T's house. I am not sure what they will be having, but I understand that his family does not really like turkey. I am actually, looking forward for to dinner there. It will be a big surprise for me. I'm sure whatever it is, it will be good.
This will be the first holiday that T and I will spend together. Well, at least part of it. I think the day will be special and I am really looking forward to it.
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.
