    Running Bear's Coffee Shop LIX

    Good morning folks. I haven't been in for awhile and thought I'd pop in and say hi. I've been busy with work, life, and a new woman! Kinda fast to meet someone but it's pretty fun so far. She's an upgrade in every way from the ex so I'm trying to not mess it up! No trains for for me lately...

    Running Bear's Coffee Shop LVIII

    Good morning folks I haven't been in or even lurked in quite some time. My wife and I are getting a divorce and I was reeling for a few weeks. Things have settled down a bit now and I'm trying to move forward with my life. I'm keeping the house so the trains will still have a home. I was...

    Running Bear's Coffee Shop LVII

    Good morning guys. I haven't been in for awhile to see what's going on. I thought I was making some progress with my wife but now I don't know. She's just off in her own world and not communicating with anyone. I think I see the writing on the wall. Not drinking has been going fine I guess...

    Running Bear's Coffee Shop LVI

    Good morning folks. Another rainy day in the upper Midwest. I'm just hanging out on my half day off. I elected to work a half day on one of my days off to keep myself busy and for the extra money. I spoke to my wife last night and there is certainly hope for the future. I'm not certain but...

    Good morning folks. Raining for the next few days. I'm thinking I'm going to have to bag the lawn when I mow on Thursday. The grass is growing like crazy! Nothing new on the Homefront. Received an email from my wife that felt a little encouraging. Guess I just need to keep working on me...

    Running Bear's Coffee Shop LVI

    Good morning folks. I haven't been in lately so I thought I'd stop by. I've been working, working around the house and going to as many meetings as I can. Since Gina left, this is like starting all over with sobriety, only this time it's for me. I haven't spoken to her since Wednesday but I...

    Thanks guys. Talked to my pastor, went to work and then a meeting. I feel a little better. Not knowing is what's killing me. Guess my whole life is one day at a time! Thanks again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good morning folks. Sunny and beautiful this morning. At least the day is starting out right. Matt, sorry to hear you are going through the same thing. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I talked with Gina last night. I guess I have a little hope after the conversation we had. That is, if...

    I asked her to see a counselor but she said she needs space to breath and then maybe it will work. Her family and mine are livid. She's acting quite strangely. I've know her since we were 16 and have never seen her act like this. Mid life crisis or something. We're thinking it has to do...

    Running Bear's Coffee Shop LVI

    Good afternoon folks. I haven't been in for a while because my wife moved out yesterday. She said Sunday night she was going to stay at her moms for awhile to sort out her feelings. Well, she emptied the house of ALL of her things yesterday while I was at work! She is completely irrational...

    Good morning folks. Beautiful morning so far. It's suppose to be in the 80's today and then 70's moving forward. Willie, I hope you have a wood burning stove or fireplace to make use of all that wood! Either that or sell it to someone who does. Gina and I are getting along quite well and...
