Think About the Future

“the future, the future, the future” – apparently I’m the only person who was obsessed with the Batman soundtrack in the early 90’s.

We took my son to look at a few colleges in Iowa Monday, it’s hard to believe that in a little more than a year he’ll graduate from high school and turn 18.  I was thinking the other day that at the end of his junior year he will take finals, go to football camp, go on mission trips and do some work as a camp counselor.  At the end of my junior year I took my finals early and had him, in fact, his father missed out on 6 hours of labor because he was taking his finals.

On the drive home I was thinking about the things that I want to apologize to my son for, like the divorce and it’s effect on him, and my decision to marry Ed in the first place.  I have said before that Ed was a good dad, and for the most part he was.  That said, I know it isn’t good for a child to be in an environment with a man who went from fine to pissed in 2 minutes or less.  There are some things that went on in the past that break my heart, and I hope that my son can live beyond them.
