I have been traveling a good bit in the last few weeks – hence the lack of updates. To answer an earlier question, I have no idea why my father decided to repeat his same mistakes. It’s like trying to make a rational argument for a situation that is truly irrational. He did reach out to me while I was traveling in Texas but I have not responded. Partly because I’m still angry over the situation and the other is to prove a point. If everyone instantly forgives him (like we did last time), he will not learn from his errors. In other news, we are looking at “new to us” cars tonight after work. Mr. M’s car is making a series of noises and now that I travel more, I want to make sure that he can get to work safely. It does us no good for his car to breakdown on the interstate while I’m on the other side of the country. Wish us luck!
