I had a beginning and an ending today.

I interviewed for and was offered a new job. It means packing up an moving, yet again, but that has both good and bad sides. I'll miss my friends and co-workers here. I wont miss the crime or the "you're not from around here" ostracization of small towns. I really won't miss the family of the father of my grandson, a family that has made no effort to meet the child in the two months since he's been born, after doing everything possible to block placing the baby up for adoption.

I'm kind of glad for that. How could you not love that face?
We'll be in a much more open, diverse environment. The kids will have access to cultural institutions that just aren't available in rural Pennsylvania. They'll meet people who value education and personal growth for growth's sake. I think it will be a good move.

The other thing that happened today was my children's grandfather died. I haven't spoken to him for nearly two years, and we parted on bad terms. I still loved him. I knew his health was declining rapidly, but since the divorce I haven't been welcome in that family. I wish him peace in his transition.

My God, you're in Berwick? Some of those people who've been ostracizing you are related to me.

That baby is absolutely adorable...bright eyed and pink...I bet the sweetie is squeezable and huggable, too. What you are doing is for the best, kiddo. Into the future, no looking back...onward and upward!

The moments of watching a baby grow up are precious, and you can never have them back. You, your daughter, and your son are blessed to have the memories of them. Some day, the father and his family will regret having missed them. But they have made their choice.

Congrads on the new job!!

I'm sorry about your ex-FIL's passing, and that things feel unresolved because of how things ended.

That is a beautiful baby, though, I must say! I hope your family will enjoy your new city. :)
