Dakota (and her gf) have found an apartment so I spent some time this morning pulling together household items for her to have. Towels, sheets, bathroom stuff, etc. are all boxed and bagged. Kaylen has been busy packing a bag of her stuff to have over there. Kelton? He's more of a "go with the flow" kind of guy. He'll decide visit by visit what stuff he will take. He's a funny one, that boy. Kaylen? She's my little "plan ahead" girl. So much like me.
I've made choices and decisions in my life lately which become more and more clear are the right choices and decisions for me. I am happy and peaceful and no longer living in a state of chaos and confusion. At this point in my life, I know what I want and need and what it is I have to offer and give and I know that to deny what I know in every cell of my body would be the wrong move.
To that end....allow me to introduce you all to Marlene. She is an amazing person and I am so grateful to have her in my life. The kids, hers and mine, are doing well and getting along (almost) perfectly. We all have spent a great deal of time together in recent weeks and it's been easy, fun and great. I couldn't ask for more.
Life is good. Really, really good.
