My apology for not getting a post our over the weekend. It was more of a technical issue that prevented me. I’m also way, way behind on responding to emails, text messages, and phone calls. Please allow me today to get back to everyone.
Unfortunately, Friday’s meeting wasn’t as I hoped. The defense proposed nothing new. For what it’s worth, I made an offer that would get everyone moving in the right direction. It would, by no means, resolve the civil complaint I have against Austin Vantrease and Jonathan May. Still, it is an apparently practical and genuine first step. No word on if they want to entertain it.
So, we didn’t spend too much time in Wheeling, WV. I was excused a within a couple of hours. From there I went to visit my daughter, Kari, at West Virginia University. What a wonderful time we had together! I never wanted it to end. She is just so good for me, and to me. We laughed together the entire weekend. Twice I laughed so hard that I got the hiccups. When I woke the next morning my face was actually sore from smiling so much! The corners of my eyes were a bit chapped from crying in laughter over many hours. Yes, it was that great.
I just wish I didn’t have that feeling of always being torn. Wanting and needing to be in two places at the same time. On top of this, I hadn’t seen Sue for over a week. I hate that feeling of being pulled from every direction and knowing it’s impossible to make it all right. There’s always an element of guilt, even though I know I shouldn’t feel that way. It’s more than one man can manage, but that knowledge does nothing to alleviate anything.
Meanwhile, back home, Ryan was getting the royal treatment. I’ll just show you some of the pictures that were being sent to me instead of trying to explain.
Yep, if only I could be in two places at once…
