I was driving home from lunch at my future mother-in-law's house today, and got the call from my mom. My dad wants a divorce. He told me that he's just tired of life never changing, always dealing with stupid shit every day, and he wants out. This story is bullshit. He has a woman on the side, and has for several months now. It's an online relationship; the woman lives in Texas. My mom just got off the phone with him, and apparently she divorced her husband as well. I saw this coming. I saw all the signs...an IM window left open, a picture of some woman on the computer, the caller ID showing calls from Sherman, TX, the outrageous phone bill, the webcam that showed up on his computer (we have a small cabin on Lake Allatoona I'm living at temporarily, and he comes over every weekend), the bitching about the lake house phone bill being so high, etc. And it just makes me sick knowing I talked to this woman once, not knowing who she was. I thought it was a bill collector, because I don't know anyone in Texas, but...well, I guess I was wrong. I knew he talked to people online in chat rooms. I just didn't know how far it had gone. I'm just numb right now. He came back the first time, twenty years ago. So now I sit here and look back and question every minute of my childhood. Stay together for the kids, I guess. Well, the four of us are grown now, so I guess there's no reason to stay around if you're tired of your wife bitching and nagging about taking care of basic housekeeping duties, and working, and supporting your goddamn family.
