#1 Son's D.I.V.O.R.C.E. hearing Thursday in Omaha.


Honestly, I never thought I'd find myself in the place that I'd be pulling for a divorce for one of my boys.

But, here I am.

Don't know what will happen.  The SheDevil is not going quietly in to the expected.  It's complicated, and all terribly tragic in its own way.

But, #1 Son is resolved to deal with whatever He's tempered to that now.  

It is certainly bugging me & The Mrs. more than it is him.  He's upbeat & positive about his life, and his future, and it seems that I could probably learn a lesson or two from him about shelving possibilities, and just waiting for shoes to fall and dealing with realities.

I'll let y'all know.

I love y'all.  And, I truly do appreciate the prayers, encouragement, support, and  patience y'all have had with my wretched self over this whole deal.

I'll let y'all know.


  1. He's upbeat & positive about his life. And so he should be Andy. After the little bit that you've shared with us, he's definitely better off. On to bigger and better things without having to pack the 'dead weight'.

  2. Don't tell me the SheDevil wants the yacht and the Bentley. Outrageous!!

    I'm not too good at accepting what is either. As a dad, I'm of the mindset there MUST be SOMETHING I can do for my kid, SOMETHING that will make everything all right, and then proceed to drive my self looney trying to figure out what that elusive something might be.

    In these kinds of situations, good solutions are hard to come by. I just hope the whole stinkin' ordeal is over soon for all of you.

  3. Hey y'all! Thanks.

    Dadman, I know your heart well enough to believe every word you typed there. Glad I'm not the only one.

  4. Here's hopin' for better days and the BEST of all possible outcomes for SN1. Positive thoughts in flight to you and yours as we speak, Andy.

  5. Oh yeah, domestic issues suck, particularly when watching your kids go through them. Just received some unwelcome news about one of my own, so I feel you there. Hope it all works out well.

  6. Ditto what Buck said about your SN1. Having been through something similar in 1994-96 with our son, Joyce and I can empathize with what you're going through. It seemed to us like we thought about it almost all the time and even when we weren't, it was lurking there in the back of our minds. Hang in there man--I believe better days are ahead for SN1 and for you and your wife.

  7. Good for your son...and yes it's hard for you and your wife to sit back and watch. But whatever it takes for him to be RID of her, with no ties for her to come back later, will be worth it.

    I have a cousin who let her mean and spiteful ex have, cars, furniture, savings, WHATEVER!!! And she's free and clear and HAPPY today. Her ex is burdened with debt and misery, and she travels in her job and loves life. I have the utmost admiration for her and your son for seeing the goal that REALLY benefits them, not just a material one.

  8. Dave, Buck, Dan, and Mrs. Who:

    Thanks so much for chiming in. I really appreciate the fact that you all know what this kind of deal does to the psyche.

    Your words are very encouraging. Even though I'm old enough to know that there is no situation that is uncommon to others...and that most all of them wade through it and come out the better for it...

    Still, I struggle. Just knowing that y'all give a good gaal darn really helps. Really.

  9. Hang in there, Andy. It's all downhill from here.

  10. I can relate with Mrs. Who's comment. And Moogie P? That's, "Hang ON there, Andy. It's all downhill from here." Oh, and please keep all arms and legs secured for most enjoyment from your ride.

    (Sorry, Andy. I couldn't resist. Still, I've been thinking and sending good thoughts your way. Hope everything turns out for your son's best)


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
