Daily Temperature Reading, 3/16

Okinawa | March 16, 2016


Hey baby, I appreciate the long talk today, it really helped me to see not only how I have screwed things up and how you feel, but also how I can work on correcting things… Not that I can ever fully correct things, but you know what I’m saying. I also appreciate you talking to me about how I can improve my relationship with the kids. You three mean the world to me and I am tired of being (and ashamed of being) a joke of a husband and father.

New Information:

Today was another good day at the conference. D and I got a lot of good information to pass along when we get back. It was also good talking to you about things because I really think I am going to push for myself and T to go to the other conference in Arizona. Besides, I’d love to spend time with you there…maybe we could go spend some time out in the desert under the stars one night! D finally got the CAC card reader to work and I was able to check my emails and write some.


I am puzzled by why I haven’t heard anything from anyone about my school I want. That bothers me. I talked some more about the anger management class with D and he told me that the guy in particular he was thinking of went to the class and then had like 9 months of follow up counseling to reinforce that training and to work things out. Knowing him now it is hard to imagine him with anger issues, so I guess it worked. I know I don’t have that kind of time so when I get back I am going to talk to the chaplain about the anger and/or stress management classes that are provided on island. 

Concerns with Recommendations:

My concern is how long they might be. Having said that, the longer I wait to start the less time I will have to complete them. So I am going to get in as soon as I can.

Wishes, Hopes and Dreams:

Again, I want to be the best husband and father I can be.
