I have a rare Friday night off from work, and hence I will be sipping on a little Bacardi and spending some quality time with my Xbox360 for a change.
Looking at a heat index over a hundred this weekend. Golfing both days. Those cold drinks are going to be especially tasty. Weird thing is that it was 56 yesterday morning
Enjoy your QT with your XBox and Bacardi, Ascendant!
Turning into a nice peaceful evening here. Just what I needed after a bit of a brutal work week.
Yes, I'm busy as fuck at work and have a TON of pressure. Positive side, I get paid well, I've been promoted in the midst of all the A and D shit my ex put me through, and, well, I have a job. That contract on my house? yeah, moving sucks, but you know what? I wanted out of here, and my ex gets NOTHING from the sale. I'm getting visibly grayer by the day, but you know what? Considering where I was at the start of this year, I've got soooo very much to be proud of. I'm a survivor. you menz helped show me that. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
So, if this sounds like shameless bragging, it may be partly that. Moreover, it's just me in a window of true perspective seeing that I have much to be thankful for. Calmed and embraced by these realizations, I raise a glass to you. I hope you all have those windows of positive reflection, those realizations that you are awesome, deserving of happiness, and you are the definition of what it is to be a man. Yes, we all share the hurt of being victims of infidelity. We bond over that, but that does not define us. We are so much more, and it's the loss of our WWs that they underestimated who we are. I'm honored to be in your presence. Peace and strength.

Here's my Friday -- starting from still being stunned from deciding to D six days ago, but now I'm setting up my brand new gaming laptop, onto which I'm going to install some extremely violent video games. And blow some shit up. Virtually of course. And STBXWW can't stop me. Sublime.
Sample recovery plan, feedback welcome: http://www.survivinginfidelity.com/forums.asp?tid=539961
Hello and welcome, mhca. I think you'll fit in very well here. I had to do a few violent games for awhile there, myself. Good to have you here, despite the circumstances.
Ummm, did they tell you at the door that the first round is on the noob?
Hey, followed your posts. Sorry for your sitch, damn, she's heartless. I think violent video games are absolutely the right response.
Does Tequila go with sublime?
Welcome brother, Blow some shit up (virtually speaking) and blow off steam here. This really is the best club you never wanted to be a part of. We got you. Lean on us.
I'd ask who is who in that pic, but either way we're both winners. *fistbump*
That's something I'm pretty proud of. This shit storm didn't drive me to drink. Still standing.
Welcome. We're a rowdy bunch but this group is supportive as hell.

Ascendant: just noticed your sig:
"The thing that always seems to be shocking to wayward wives is the simple fact that the man you choose to reconcile with is not the same man you cheated on."
I was so trusting of her, a pushover really. Whatever she wanted she got. But then she pushed too far and pushed herself right off a cliff.
Funny how that works, eh?
Mine did the same thing. I'm drawn to this mental image of Wyle E Coyote trying to push a boulder off a cliff except pushing himself off instead. And of course not falling until he looks down.
Drinks on the noob right? I gotta make a beer (hope you like yeungling!) run in a bit, but I got a bottle of crown that's been looking mighty lonely.
After my 1st M crashed and burned, I swore off marriage ever again. A couple short years later I married my STBX.
As she's in the fog dreaming of OM's dick, she says "you'll find someone new". I don't want anyone new, and I don't want her either.
I know we all have this chip on our shoulders coming out of an M (especially an M with a WS). But I really think getting a couple of dogs and focusing on the important things in life like being a Father, Hunting, Fishing, and good beer are more in line with a productive future rather than ever messing around with the notion of a relationship ever again.
Not to say I won't need some "service points" every now and again. But I just don't see going down this road a third time.
