Mark to Sue 3, part 3
Enough of that!
What time do you go to bed? Do you cook every night? Did you dispose of Roger's things, or are you still storing them? Was your move something you and Roger were planning, or did you make that decision yourself? I hope you don't think these questions too forward or personal - I'm just genuinely interested. People wonder how I manage, a working father (and mother) with three children. Having spent nearly 2 years as a widower (IRS defnition - are you comfortable with the term "widow"?), I would like to compare notes with a working mother (and father) of three children. On a daily basis, I spend more time talking with other moms than I do fathers. My male friends don't understand that moms are the activities coordinator for the whole family. I perform that role every day. I really feel like Mr. Mom - shopping sales, saving coupons, selecting long distance carriers, making teacher conferences, etc., etc. I've had to become more nurturing and affirming and less authoritative with my kids.
Well, I feel like I'm rambling - so I'll close.
P.S. You think you are computer-clueless - I had such a difficult time sending this last letter that I didn't get a chance to proofread it for errors - and it's loaded with them. I pushed the send button by mistake, and it was gone - mistakes and all. Please pardon my mistakes. I'll do better next time.
