So it’s been a hot minute since I last made a personal update. * Looks through history* Damn okay, so May was the last time I made a personal update. A lot has changed between then and now. Thankfully most of it was great changes/events. First one I would to bring up is about my custody battle. I know I’ve spoken about this at a number of times over the years. The stress and frustration it has cause my family as finally come to an end. In July we finally had our trial!! Shockingly it went easier than I thought. At the 11th hour before the trial, my lawyer called me stating that my ex wanted to make an offer. This offer came to us not long after we released our findings and witness list, as well evidence for my case. See before we didn’t get a chance to release our records due to the case being pushed back so many times. So once the other party finally got see what we have, the story quickly changed.
While we are still waiting to get the official signed documents fro the court house, I am happy to say that I now have full sole custody of my kids!!! While this is an awesome win for my family, it does have some smaller battles that will continue till the kids are of age. Their mother does have a parenting time plan for out of state. But their mother yet again moved to another state, only after she told the courts that her address at the time was a permanent. This is a on going pattern and would mark the 15th move she has made in the last 3 years. Plus she doesn’t want to pay child support and want me to pay for their trips out there. Or at least half of it… Yeah, that’s a hard no.. So like I said, there are a few smaller battles going on. But the most important one is finished and won. I have custody of my children!! After years of being told “no” or “be thankful for what I have.”, even was told that one point no man in the state of Oregon would have true custody. It was because of these comments I made it my mission to show that this wrong and fight the system. All these years of keeping records and being patient paid off.
August was another big month for us. Lilly got to have her birthday with friends and family. My girlfriend and I got married!! So much craziness leading up the wedding day. The food prep, making all the decorations and everything else that goes with a wedding. But it was awesome to see things come together. I was beyond happy to have most of my family there and friends. Even with Covid, we were still able to get people together. Plus it helped that everything was outdoors haha. We are currently waiting on pictures, there is something like over 400+ photos. So once we get all those I’ve have to share some with you. But we do have a few to show you.
And yes the wedding theme was HEAVY in the Lord of the Rings, Celtic and Scottish traditions. Also I forgot to bring up, I got a new job before the wedding. So it has been a rather eventful few months. Right now we are just trying to enjoy our time and move through life as normal as possible. As normal as we can get with Covid limitations.
I do have a few projects coming up centered around comic books, and DIY cosplay. The cosplay was a quest line that my son started for Halloween. I’ve shared a few pictures on my Instagram, but I’ll make sure to share the project in more depth on here. One of the other project is help my brother with his PR and website building. He is running for office in southern Oregon, so this had been an interesting experience.
