I want to thank all of you who have been so kind and supportive with your comments and thoughts.

It seems like Dave and I have come to an agreement. He and I are separating and he is going to move into the basement.

I know that this seems odd to many people, but really it isn't. Of course, my parents are a little miffed. But I think right now it is what is best for all of us.

Max gets both his parents in the same house with him all the time.

Dave gets to see Max everyday.

And I get to have someone here everyday who can give me some back up in taking care of Max. So I can take a break now and then.

Dave hopes that we can remain friends and I believe that we can. I know it depends on both of us being mature about this. And I know that there are a lot of issues that we still have to settle, like when we actually get divorced and how the finances will be handled going forward. But I think at this point we can both put Max first and compromise on anything that we don't agree on.

I think the two key issues right now are 1) I am not angry or bitter about anything when it comes to Dave. (I may be a tiny bit jealous that he has more friends to hang out with than I do right now, unless you count hanging out in the McDonald's playroom, but I can get over that) and 2) I don't want him back, at all, ever.

I think these two things together add up to us being able to handle this situation.

SO thank you ALL for being so wonderful. Here's to a new year and new adventures.
