    I may being MIA for a while. Put me on autopilot, I'll be back sooner rather than later.

    Anyway an update for everyone.

    Today my wife surprised me by telling me she wants a divorce. So, in the near future I will be moving to a new place. When that move comes, I will be without internet for a week probably. If I can work out a way to take my Xbox to my brothers I will try to stay active.

    I go to look at an apartment Saturday afternoon, but I should be good through the offseason at least. Just try to be patient with me.

    I think it is pretty much a given we are done. I hate the uncertainty of things, but the sooner I get a place and establish a routine the better I will be. I am going to need a diversion anyway, so it might as well be this. As long as I can see my daughter when I want I will be fine.

    I was going to ask you about that one time but I thought it was kind of none of my business.:) Do you have your son all the time?

    I have 50/50 shared custody. I had the most civil divorce known to man. I don't pay child support or alimony or anything. My ex knows that I would do anything for my son so she didn't request any of that. Besides that if she tried I would have hired a lawyer and fought for full custody.

    I am not sure what to do with custody. I hate the thought of taking a 2 year old from her mom. Worse case I will live down the street (it's a small town) and see her every day. The upside is my soon to be ex-wife is very nice and will be civil about things. Same thing, she knows I have more resources if she doesn't.

    If it's an amicable split, shared custody would be good. Pick a schedule and stick to it to make it easier on your daughter. My son was 3 when we split up and I have had him on the same days ever since. It changes for special occasions but for the most part he's on a routine. He's about to turn 6 and this is the life he knows so I don't think it really affected him too much. His mom lives about 1/2 mile from me so he's always close by.

    That sounds like a good deal. I don't know any other guys who pull that off, so it is nice to know it is possible.

    Guys that aren't douchebags and care about their kids can pull it off.

    I don't know many of them. It seems like fatherless kids are the norm around here.
