so remember how a little while ago I posted about the trauma of my childhood..
well today is my dads birthday, him and I actually have a great relationship now.

It was a quick post and I don't have many pics with her anyway.
he's apologized for everything in the past and it helped me move on, though I do not forgive him or forget what he said.. I have moved on.

Anyways, how is everyone? Hopefully you all have had some good days last week. Here's to another week, we got this

Just when I thought life had turned a corner, wham. Husband of 36 years walks...
Hi, I'm in a profession which is overwhelmingly women. Not a big deal but it produces some challenges. I'm usually the only man around. They joke and laugh about things that can get somewhat inappropriate at times. Sometimes singling me out as the lone male. I find it funny. Doesn't bother me. Issue is more that if I said the same thing. Or any joke about women in a similar fashion. I'd likely...
