Celebrate June 18th !
I hope that all the Dad's out there enjoyed the day today.
CJ and I had a nice day with the child. She was over to visit, give gifts, watch a movie, and help me make dinner for him tonight.
As many of you regular readers know CJ and the child (aged 21) are just getting to know each other again. This is the first time since the reconciliation that she wanted to get him a gift for Father's Day. It didn't feel 'real' to her until now. I am so happy for the both of them. They are two of the people I love the most in the world and it makes my cup runneth over to see them so happy again. As I write this CJ is taking her home and I'm sure they are having a nice end of the evening discussion 'without mom around'. It's a good thing they have this relationship.
Twenty-four years ago on this date CJ and I were married. We were 23 years old. We were in love and we were divorced five years later. We weren't ready. Three years ago we were ready.
So we still 'celebrate' our anniversary even though we are no longer married and never will be again. (I know CJ, I shouldn't be using the word never).
This reason is the newest. Sometime during dinner this evening Debbie's Diary hit the 100,000 hits mark. A heartfelt 'Thank You' from CJ and I. I hope that all our long time readers keep enjoying and that the newer readers keep exploring. As CJ and I have found out over the years, both together and apart, we are getting better.
