I haven’t told anyone that my ex will be moving home this week.

I spoke to my mom this afternoon and she is telling me that I shouldn’t feel "obligated" to take care of him.

He has three brothers that live in the city, and I know they would help out any way they can. But I certainly don’t want him moving into their house at this time.

I would feel guilt for the rest of my life if he didn’t move back home.

My mom is a church going person. The church is a big part of her life. Why doesn’t she understand forgiveness?

I know she never liked the guy, but we were married for almost 12 years, I have known him for 20. How can someone be so cold?

For me, forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps a person go on with life.....

My ex was discharged from the hospital yesterday.

He is in stage 4 of his cancer. There is no stage 5.

His prognosis is 3 to 6 months. I have been doing some soul searching and think I am going to ask him to move back home.

He now regrets not spending time with his children and being a part of their lives like he should have. He wants to spend his remaining time with his kids.

I don’t want him alone as I know he is going to get sicker and will need help.

In the coming months, he will need hospice. I can’t let him go through this alone.

I have a feeling my kids are going to grow up real fast in the coming months..................

I need to post but really don't know what to say. I thought 2008 was a bad year, but 2009 has been even worse.

We were divorced on March 27th, and now I sit in the hospital room today hearing the oncologist saying that my ex has lung cancer. They need to do an MRI and bone scan to see where else it has spread.

Just by looking at his cat scan, they say he is in the advanced stages.

I went through cancer with my dad, and wonder how I am going to do this again with two little boys by my side.

Wealth Management/Personal Trust & Private Banking

This is the description of my NEW JOB!

I was offered this position yesterday but haven’t accepted as I had another great interview yesterday afternoon.
It is with the same company but a different position.

After a restless night I think I will accept the wealth management position.

Dome Sweet Dome

Tonight is the Twins’ home opener and I got tickets to the game! WooHoo!!!!!!!!

It is a memorable game tonight - this will be the Twins' final season at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.

The team has played in the dome for 27 years and has provided a lot of great memories for millions of Twins' fans.

We still have a year until the new open-air stadium will be the home for the Twins, but there has been a lot of nostalgia about the HHH Metrodome dome lately.

It hosted two remarkable World Series wins for the Twins, a major-league All-Star game, Super Bowl XXVI, and two NCAA Final Four men's basketball championships.

It may be among the most maligned stadiums of all time, but the Metrodome also has one of the most illustrious histories.

Of course, we can’t forget the nicknames: the Teflon Marshmallow, the Hump, Big Inflatable Toilet, the Dump, old Humpty dome.....etc.

And in the 27 years of its existence, it has only collapsed three times!

Hopefully this will be a memory that my boys will be talking about in the years to come.............

Meet Harriet

Harriet the Eagle was the model for the Minnesota "Support Our Troops" license plates.

Harriet is 27 years old and an occupant at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, MN.

The kids and I drove down there yesterday, along with my mom, and visited the eagle center.

It was a small center but had four resident eagles that had been injured so no longer would be able to survive on their own.

It was located on the shores of the St. Croix River and the eagles were abundant.

I would like to go back when the weather is warmer as it was snowing and pretty chilly!
