    I'm at the lake with my parents and kids. Went fishing with my son this morning and this afternoon. Caught a pretty good size bass. Went to pick up my youngest daughter from her ROTC meet (parents aren't allowed to attend). Back at the lake now. I think I've driven about 250 miles this weekend so far, and spent Idk how many hours in traffic. Is so totally worth it to see my kids though. Even if it's time in the car with them, we talk nonstop and catch up. So far it's been an awesome weekend.

    Spent a lot of time with my kids

    They make me happy. I'm a completely different person when I'm around them. They give me a reason to be here. Actually, I'm not sure where I'd be without them. It's funny how being a parent means you obviously have to give. And give. And give. It never, ever ends, it's 24/7 giving yourself away. There are no days off. You have to take care of yourself obviously but when it's all said and done you come last, kids come first.

    But they give back so, so much. In ways I never thought possible. The love I get back from my kids is amazing. The life lessons they've taught (without even intending to) are nothing short of amazing. I really am blessed to have them in my life. They are incredible. They're smart, caring, giving little people that are halfway between being kids and adults. Being a teenager is tough, I remember. They are dealing with it very, very well so far. They're responsible. And giving. And very mature for their age. And very resilient. And smart.

    My ex-wife and I agreed when they were very, very young that sometimes you have to let them fall on their butts, it's the only way they'll ever learn to pick themselves up and dust themselves off and try again. And they do that very well.

    Spent most of today with my dad and sister, in my mom's hospital room. It was pretty difficult at times. When I got there she was in a lot of pain. They were giving her morphine, and some opiate even stronger than morphine, and Xanax, and Baclofen. They had to stagger the doses just right....there's no way she can take all of that all at once. They're just trying to stabilize her at this point. The pain was finally manageable before my sister and I left.

    My sister brought my dad some food. I've offered over and over again today to go check on his house, and the dogs, but he's said it's taken care of. I think the upside is we all talked a lot, pretty quietly, almost in whispers, until my mom finally went to sleep. When she did, my sister and I left so my dad could pull out the sofa sleeper in the room and try to sleep. He'd been up for over 36 hours straight. He finally got a couple of hours. It think my dad was glad to have us there. I think having us there helped him in some ways.

    My sister and I talked a lot today, esp in the lobby after we left the room. Talked about the cardiologist, her neurosurgeon, physical therapist, doctor and nurse in charge. We're both very, very worried, but we leaned on each other a lot today. I haven't talked to my sister like that one on one, not this much in years. My mom finally ate something just now and that's a really, really good sign.

    I feel like my sister and I did everything we could today. I don't know what else we can do at this point, except keep offering our help and visiting. I was honestly afraid to go up there at first. I had three people very, very close to me pass away within 6 months of each other several years ago. Death scares the hell out of me. Like it does most people. I'm afraid she's going to die. We're all afraid they're not gonna be able to figure out what's really going on. But I pushed through the fear and anxiety and spent a whole lot of time with her today. She was very out of it of course but she knew I was there and that's what matters.

    I had an absolutely incredible evening with my kids. It was just....epic. It was awesome.

    We went to the Rockets / Lakers game and we won in double overtime.

    The funny thing is....I was really strangely uninhibited tonight. I wasn't drinking or anything lol.....I don't drink a drop of alcohol around my kids..

    But I was just strangely....myself. I danced with them lol in our seats, and in our aisle, and on our way up to the stadium lol. after a while they just rolled their eyes at me. my oldest daughter danced with me though. we had so, so much fun tonight.

    Conversation flowed. We ate at the stadium. We talked throughout the whole game, and laughed, and teased, and joked around.

    It was pretty awesome. A night I will never forget.

    I cut the grass. Because of the bad weather, this was only the first cut this year. Fair to say there was a lot of grass. Very wet grass too. Our back garden is big enough. Got it and the front garden done. Now I just want my bed. LOL

    Wow. I heard from....well....actually, got the courage to respond to.....a buddy of mine.

    And I heard back from him, right away. And got a phone call.

    This man is my f-ing brother. He is my best friend. We were roommates when I was in the hospital. He is a f-ing god. I would do anything for him, he is my brother. We had late night, midnight talks, advice given, there pretty much were no secrets.

    He wants to keep in touch. He is.....who I aspire to be, in some ways. Damn. #mancrush

    The relationships that matter....matter.

    Leave the others.

    People that matter in your life will stick around. Those that don't....you're better off without them. Leave them. Let them drop off your radar. Move the fuq on.

    That's something positive I've done today lol. I've come to that realization.

    Went for an hour+ long walk. It was nice. I think I actually got this foreign thing I hear about called a "tan". Ever so slightly. I'm sure my body appreciates the vitamin D.

    Went to the Astros / Indians game with my kids, brother-in-law and nephew. We lost but it was a really close, exciting game. Was a lot of fun. Lots of good food and laughter.

    Over the past few months I've been slowly piecing together my mental history and the fact that I (very likely) have ADHD. It's been a long, strange, and very emotional journey and the fact that I may finally have my answer is both extremely relieving and incredibly frustrating. Learning just the past few weeks that my brother was diagnosed with ADHD, and the fact that the men in my family have a large history of it finally puts so much of my own struggles into perspective ever since I was a kid. I literally burst into tears watching research presentations by Dr. Barkley about his in depth explanations about ADHD and his findings and it was like he was describing my entire life and all the struggles I've been through. I feel like for the first time I finally know what the hell I'm dealing with, and am able to actual move forward with my life.

    Something positive you've done today?

    Went for a long walk with a friend and our dogs. The weather was great and we had ice-cream on our way back.

    Talked to @Koalafan on WhatsApp
