I missed my son's graduation from kindergarten because my ex-wife did not tell me the date.
I'm angry, but that doesn't do me much good. The event is over. Yelling at my ex-wife won't get me to go back in time. So I just have to progress with life and reinforce to my son when I do see him that I do care about him and me missing this event means nothing.
I mean, I don't even remember my kindergarten graduation and I don't know if both of my parents could make it because of work and schedules and stuff. I am sure if I asked them they would let me know. But the point is it didn't scar me in either case. I can't remember it. I hope the same is true for my son.
I knew the divorce would cause troubles, but this is something I never expected. I should have, but I am slowly unraveling how my life will be. There is someone I cannot trust to give me information.
It's frustrating, but I have to deal with it.
Although my son was out and I did not get to see him today, I at least managed to turn my energy to getting some translation work done and then playing some Magic in a Standard Showdown. I went 2-1, thanks to a bye. So I got some store credit and pulled an Angrath in my Showdown pack. That's cool. Less important than my son's graduation, but I was able to at least do something with my day instead of moping about things out of my control.
And that is what I have to do. I have to live a life. My own.
