I spent most of the day yesterday with Damien. We went to Flat Rock and I took some pictures of him - they turned out really good. I have really specific ideas about what I like to catch on film, I really don't like pictures that look too polished. After Flat Rock, we went to Publix and then back home to make dinner for the family. I was in the process of cooking when Maggie told me that she had informed Nathan that she was through with him, and held up her left hand to reveal no wedding ring. Maggie has never taken that ring off since the day he first put it on her finger. She told us that he told her he was going to make it all right, and she told him "Well Nathan, you will or you won't - the point is that I have no faith in you to do anything you claim you're going to do." He asked her if they could still be friends, and she said of course they could.
So basically I have no idea what happens from here on out. It's anybody's guess at this point. I really hope that whatever happens, that she doesn't get depressed again. There are a lot of things to consider, but I think all in all it is a better idea for her to do this than to continue putting up with what she's had to put up with. I love Nathan very much, I think he's a great friend and will one day be a better father - but he's not a very good husband. He's just a big kid. I just don't know. Send us energy, folks - we need it.
I'm feeling a little better today. I slept fairly well last night, and am hoping that Cole is not going to argue with me about the PS2 today. Today is going to be busy as all hell, I can feel it in my bones. If Illeigh comes over then he will have a distraction from the game and a better excuse to play outside. The downside is the two of them have a tendency to get on one another's nerves after a little time spent together. That and they tend to get loud, which is not conducive to Avery's naptime.
I think phlegm should be banned. Yawp.
