stalemate

Tonight's my last night holed up in a hotel far from home. (Well, one that I didn't choose to stay in.)

I'm almost giddy. I get to get back to some semblance of normalcy. I even get two full weeks home with TheDog before I leave her again.

I shouldn't complain. I have had fun excursions here and there during breaks in the "action." And many may be relayed here soon.

In the meantime, just wanted to give the (non) update on the boy situation. I'm right where I was two days ago. And still not sure I'm going to do anything more about it.

After our brief conversation tonight, I'm fairly certain nothing has changed. Not that I really expected anything to. As I commented, I don't think either of us is willing to back down right now.

And I'm not certain how long I can just stare across the OK Corral without either walking away or staying to fight.

Ahh...Catch-22. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Just think if you don't say something, will you regret it? Live with no regrets. That's my MO.

Just remember, it doesn't have to be a fight. He knows the situation, and he is aware of all the things going on in your family, and he should be able to respect that. You can still stand in the corral and stare him down, and eventually, even if you walk away from the fight, you win.
