Only one divorce, I to was the domicile parent

I have two great daughters.  They have limited interaction with their mother - more than they would like if you believe what they say.

I have little to no interaction with her, which I appreciate

I was divorced once and to my great surprise remarried a few years back (not to the first wife of course).

How many here have a divorce or three?  I'm probably a bit unusual (in general) in that I was the domicile parent.  My ex for whatever reason was not interested in child rearing, at all.  It would have been nice had I realized that up front, but I did get three great kids (who have zero interaction with her).
Just the one divorce for me, and second marriage... Planning to keep both numbers the same :93:

Sadly the kids are still minors and there's joint custody, so I have far too much interaction with their mom.

I once wore a tungsten ring and it saved my hand... I had a truck's front end on a Jack and was moving Jack stands under it... I reached up between stand and axle to move an ABS harness wire when the hydraulic Jack blew the cylinder... the axle fell the maybe three inches to the stand and my finger was trapped between the two in the cradle....

I took a picture of it... I should look for that pic.  I laid on that crawler staring at it after taking the picture and then DUH realized if it shifted the jack stand may shoot out from under it... I got out quick!!!

I wear a ring made of a silver dollar now.  I'll find a link... they're pretty cool.  The writing and design are still visible.

My wedding ring is titanium.  Cost us maybe $80 twenty years ago.  My i s c & a aggie wife wanted to get me a much more expensive one made of gold and platinum but I'm not a very flashy guy.  This one suits me much better.

if I wore rings I'd have one of those - I like it

Yeah, titanium ring in 2006 was $110.  Bought solely because it was light and easily removable.   Just cant get finger stuck anywhere.

Never been hitched and always found the class ring thing odd. 

Granted, in my life, 80 percent of the people I knew who had them were just odd ducks to begin with.

My wedding ring comes off when I go out on the grade. Construction sites and wedding rings don't mix.

Speaking of rings, isn't the whole Engineer's Ring thing based on the rings cast from the wreckage of the first Quebec Bridge? I know the U of Minnesota does something similar with a statue cast from a piece of the 35W bridge wreckage.

No marriages, no divorces, no rings, no jewelry.  No pets, no family within 1800 miles.  I have plenty of peace and quiet.  Plenty of time to wonder.  I'm messy or tidy when I want and for as long as I want.  And I'm very happy.
.
I'm around kids and women all day at work.  It's nice not to have any when I get home.

It's been interesting getting my kids going on their new e-learning lessons while we all  are at home.   I kill off any meetings in the early am, so I cant get my 2nd grader focused and on task.  I'm helping her learn fractions.  The 5th grader is like her Mom, up early, at the lesson by 7:15, they are reccomended to start at 9, and off on her own.  

I have to admit, the school has put forth a legitimate lesson plan, a pretty full plate of tasks. I'm impressed.  The 2nd grader is missing out on the social aspects of school I can tell.  That explains the 8way face timing in the afternoons.

We were told nothing until Saturday, and were given today to set up and prepare for 2 hours of lessons for tomorrow.  
Once they realized that was absurd, they were understanding that this week will be a transition week.  I spent 30 min on the phone with a parent, just trying to get them to log in with their kid's gmail account.

I want to do a great job and provide too much content rather than not enough, but what I'm fearful of is doing all this work for 1/3 of my class that will actually DO anything.

I like watches. I particularly like big Invicta watches. I wear them and my wedding ring to work, Church, out, etc.  But as soon as I hit the door they come off. Don’t wear them around the house at all, or when I work out, or do yard work.

When I’m at home it is strictly basketball shorts and a tee shirt. I haven’t worn any type of pants that didn’t have an elastic waistband for over a week now. Even grocery store runs  are in sweats or shorts.  Haven’t shaved in that time either.

But I’m going stir crazy. This stay at home with the kids and do schoolwork thing is weighing on me.

I empathize with you OAM.  This is a helluva an undertaking.  It's great our district had much of the infrastructure in place, heavily leveraging Canvas, they are even using Zoom tomorrow.  The lessons have been on point, creative in spots, engaging.   A classic CLE tactic for verifying child attendance and the teachers score assignments and stay engaged.  

I'm not naive though,  this is a solid performing affluent district with very engaged parents.  There was going to be a high bar set of expectations.  I'll be interested how this unit math test is administered this week.  Going to be a long April .
