Well folks, it seems we ran into some logistical issues, so the negotiations with my wife will not take place this weekend.
She had to work, so it will be a few more weeks now before we can try to reconcile. I'm bummed about it, but so far it's been a great "weekend" otherwise, so I'm not complaining. I'm in a good place mentally and emotionally, for once in my life, so this setback just means to me that it's not quite time yet for it to happen.
I went grocery shopping today, with a list and everything, and spent almost exactly what I thought I was going to, and I've been having fun chatting with my best friend (who incidentally was very instrumental in compiling that grocery list) and playing around in facebook, it's been a really good day.
Today is my oldest daughter's 14th birthday, it's hard to believe that she's that old already. She just got back from spending a week in Gatlinburg (TN) with her girl scout troop, so her party is tomorrow, I'm really looking forward to spending time with her and her sisters. Then when I come back, I'm bringing along my youngest with me, so my roommate can take some pics of her for a school project on Sunday. That should be a lot of fun for her, and I'm going to thoroughly enjoy having her here with me for a time.
Things are better than they've ever been; my job is going well, I'm getting up to speed on everything I have to do there, and I will hopefully be offered a full time position at my 90 day evaluation. That's in another month.
Like everyone else, I don't know what tomorrow may bring, but it's nice to be able to say that now I don't worry too much about the future, things happen just the way they should, and in the end, I know all of it will be for the best. So have a great night everyone, stay safe, and I'll be back soon to give you another update.
