Aug 18, 2010

An uneventful night spent at my place alone, without kids. I made a big stir-fry (the kids hate stir-fry so I only make it when I don't have to hear the complaints) and drank nearly 1/2 a bottle of Dr. Pepper (because I didn't have to share any). Picking up Tyler for baseball tonight and bringing him back here for some Father & Son time.

I should clarify my statement yesterday about meeting a woman for coffee. My counselor didn't come right out and suggest it. I was talking about how upset I was that Kelly was "dating" (even though she denies it; she says she is just getting together with friends she meets on-line). He said that her doing that and me not might cause an imbalance in the relationship. That I might resent her for it, or she might be ashamed she did, in the event we reconcile. He asked if I would be comfortable going out with anyone. I said I was not, but he said I didn't have to answer the question, just think about it. Even something as simple as meeting for a coffee and explore how I felt about it.

So far, I don't feel very good about it at all. I'd rather stick needles in my eyes.

Maybe he wants you to broaden your horizons with friends so that your focus is not all on Kelly. Think about it, if you were still with Kelly, you'd go for a drink with a friend, right, not necessarily a female, but just a person.
