Yesterday the kid were off from school. I spent a good chunk of the day making treats I will bring to T's house later this afternoon. My daughter chose to hang out with me while I did that. We watch a movie together. We watched "Spy Kids 4"
I get movies from the Redbox quite a bit for the kids. It's cheap and it makes them happy. But I rarely watch the movies myself. Tonight after I put everyone to bed, I decided that I would have a movie night too.
I like movies but I don't really like watching them alone. Since, I am alone at home, I have to make changes in my thinking, right? So, one of the movies the kids wanted was the new "Conan the Barbarian". I figured a long haired, muscular guy with his shirt off for an hour and a half should be OK. Even if the plot is no good, the eye candy should make up for it, right?
I made some popcorn. I poured a diet A&W root beer and I settled on my couch for the show.
It was OK. I mean, the movie was fine, but I still did not like being there alone watching. I was wishing T was there with me. Even watching with my older boys or K would have been better than watching alone.
I will be writing a more upbeat, Thanksgiving post later today, but for now I needed to get this out.
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.
