I have 3 children ages 20, 14, and 5. The father of my 5 yr old has lived with us on a off for 4 yrs. About a year after he moved in, I caught him doing meth in the shed. I had no idea that he was on any drugs as I have never had any dealings with drugs. (I just thought he was a very hyper person) He is also an alcoholic. He has been abusive to me and my 5 yr old for 3 yrs. I have had him put in jail several times, order of protection, etc. Since the last jail stay, there hasn't been physical abuse. I feel that he is the reason for my 20 yr old's anxiety and panic disorder as well as mine, even though mine didn't start until 5 wks ago. It has just built up. He doesn't work but a couple of days a wk now driving a truck because of gas prices but he refuses to help me in any way. He will not help in the house or anything. He says that my kids should be the ones to help. I agree that they should do their share, but so should he. He just goes fishing and hangs out with friends while I work full time. I have voiced to him that I want him to move out but he won't. It's hard for me or my daughter to get well with this extra burden in the house.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
