It’s been a while since I have posted as I have been on my way back. Sitting back in US of A drinking a Vienna Lager and enjoying things.
Since last post wife has moved out into her new place and got settled down. I have reached out and have some job offers that are very attractive and I have found an awesome place for my next phase of the MAP.
My father recently drove through and met with the wife and said he noticed that the wife is about to break. He stated she is now realizing that I’m not entertaining winning her back and I am NEXTing her. Might it be the logistics only calls or the AM when she tries to pull me into her frame. Amazing a girl who complained about me wanting to talk to her just a few months ago now tries to keep me on the phone for as long as possible. This will be amusing.
While I have her figured out, one big question is how shall I go about handling the transition to being separated from my daughter? We are going to do day visits etc until I get settled (move into apartment and furnish it for us) then into overnights and split custody.
Has anybody dealt with getting back from deployment and coming back to split households? I find it slightly irking as I feel this will be the biggest emotional test knowing I have been away from my daughter for a year only to now be away 50-50. Any tips on this from the fathers?
