Right, so I've got to raise Evie to love and respect her mother.… - don't let the bastards grind you down.

Right, so I've got to raise Evie to love and respect her mother. Check. Easy to do, and frankly, it's what I want anyway. I mean, if the tables were reversed, I sure as hell would want the same.

But what do I do about this situation? I mean, if this fuckhead ends up her step-father, I'm certainly not going to hide the fact of what happened. And if she ever asks why mommy and me aren't together anymore, I'll tell her that I'll tell her when she's older...and when she's older, I'll tell her the truth. I don't know what exactly "old enough" is yet, but I think it's about puberty time.

I would be wrong to teach her that it's okay to cheat when you're married, and that there are no consequences. That's a disservice. I will not allow her to think that treating men like dog meat is acceptable. I don't want to give her a complex, and I don't really think that'll happen...but I certainly want this one point to get across.

.

I don't know if this will cheer you up as much, but I just found out we're coming back down to Tampa for a demo in mid-August. I'll probably be down there for at least 3 weeks. Maybe we can catch the Perseids somewhere other than the interstate.

word...stargazing party in the middle of nowhere, florida.

perhaps we'll rent a boat and go out into the ocean...talk about a good horizon!!

then again, there's always the everglades...plenty of nothing out there.

it'll be sweet.
