New Moo Cards | 2019 Edition

Sunday, February 10th, 2019

Just ordered some new “Me” cards from Moo.  These one’s are square and I ordered a little case to fit them in.  My last set was ordered in 2014.  You can see my last 3 sets here.  This year’s cards have my JSDOIT logo on the front and this year I went with the square kind and also got the LUXE version so they are super thick and can’t bend.  I picked up a little case that fans to get them out easy.

I like these little cards since you come across people and you can easily give one out to connect or set up something in the future.  Puts the ball in their court.  It’s always nice to meet new people and it’s also helpful when you travel and meet up on the other side of the world.

The Day My Wife Got Married

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

yep.  at the moment me and my ex have been separated since Feb of 2012.  things went south in 2013 between us and we never worked out an agreement or got divorced since then and we stopped talking to each other.  So on August 8th of this year she married her boyfriend of about two years in a fake wedding in front of a small handful of people.  Kids really like her guy so that honestly makes me happy.  maybe if she is happier she will be nicer this way.

 

kidding.

i know it was not a real wedding since the  officiant couldn’t have married them legally.   if they felt that they wanted to promise things to each other and in front of family and friends so that’s a good thing no matter who you are.

i’m guessing she didn’t approach me for an official divorce since she would have to give up her power she has.  She loves the control and she loves sticking it to me via the kids.

my daughter makes me laugh.  she looked incredible and also my son.  so handsome.

 

 

 left to right:  my son, daughter, gags for drags, nana, the ex, stu, karen’s sister and her husband and their two kids.

this wedding was the reason my kids could not be with me on my scheduled vacation this summer since it happened just after it and she planned stuff overlapping since his kids came from england during my vacation block.

kids and I hope that this makes her happy and in doing so she is a normal person and she doesn’t do the stupid stuff.

for the record… i stopped feeling married October 31st, 2011 when I took my ring off.

The Weekender | Lufthansa

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

All Lufthansa staff across the world could select from a short list of things since the company wanted to recognize the Five Star Rating it received from Skytrax.  I picked the “The Weekender” since I didn’t have a bag like this.  This weekend they are throwing a 15 Year Celebration party at the Airport for staff on Saturday.

So now… I have a bag for the weekend.  So let’s get away!

Failed Trip To Europe With The Kids

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Planned a trip with the kids to Europe in the summer of 2015 and she fucks that up at the last minute.

2016 same thing.  plan a trip and she is too scared to have them go that far and we end up getting permission to take them to Nova Scotia.  (fuck tho)

2017 I plan time and my daughter starts working with the Town of Ajax so I split my vacation to take my son to Europe and then take my daughter separately and she has stupid excuses asking if there is hospitals in Portugal.  I have things booked… flights, Airbnb’s and even a stay at a cool waterpark.

just silence.

 

so she comes back with they can’t go alone and they need to go together… so i change my vacation for October and get the approval from her that they can be pulled out of school and we can go to europe in October 2017.

I loose some deposits and she has no idea what a piece of work she looks like.

 

So October comes and I get the no from her.  kids are mad and they know she always does this.  I end up going to Nova Scotia alone to visit with my Dad.

Fast forward to 2018 and when the year turns I send her my vacation weeks so she can block them off or put them into her “Mom Planner” thing she uses.  Kids are getting excited and on one had they know that she might do this again.

What do you know…  she does it again.  I think of a plan B trip since she has the passports and I can’t even take them to the States.  I book a week at Silent Lake and I then get they can’t since of her fucking wedding and his kids from the UK are over and she has stuff planned with them everyday.

fuck
