We’re doin all right Bandito, i appreciate you asking. Nathan’s doing very well all things considered. Emotionally things are getting a very little bit easier every day for me. Financially, things are also moving along with recovering assets. Im hoping its all cleared up by February. Ill have some decisions to make in another year or so regarding the house but im going to do everything i can to keep it and stay in the neighborhood.

Ive still got some hurdles to cross that i know are going to be difficult emotionally. Cleaning out closets, selling her vehicle, Xmas, her bday, our anniversary. Im trying to mentally prepare myself for those days as best as i can. My focus right now is really on Nathan and making sure my dude is keeping up with schoolwork and not getting too high or too low. My mother and brother have been a huge help. They may end up moving in with us come the spring time. Ill be happy to have my inlaws back in another month. They snowbird to Florida but will be back for the holidays. We’re gonna need each other for that time.

All in all, the boots are pretty heavy but im marching. Trying to put that energy into something positive. Not really looking forward to the winter months and being cooped up inside with not much to do all while trying to avoid the Rona. One day at a time with that crap though, cant go getting too far ahead of myself.

Kids are badasses. They don’t take no ish from nothing. It amazes me sometimes to see the trauma some of them go through and it’ll knock ‘em down for a bit but then they’ll just wake up one day and it’ll just be the way it is and they’re just a kid again. Nathan will never not miss his mom but he’ll be good. Keep the good people around as much as you can. That’s a huge help with no substitute. One foot in front of the other brother.

We’re all glad that you got us safely to Level 3 Stef. I hope that we can help you to get through this by lifting your spirits, by listening or by just providing a distraction once in a while.

Stef thanks for letting us back in. We promise to wipe our feet, not to cuss and only consume Class A Cocktails.
But seriously stay strong and surround yourself with the ones that love you. Your in our prayers.
