So I guess one of the first stories I need to tell is about how I met my Son's mother, my wife, my team mate, Amber. We went to high school together and to be honest nothing much happened except idle conversation during class. We weren't close friends never hung out outside of school and only had one or two classes together.
After high school we fell off each other's radar, as teenagers often do. Seven years pass where not a word is spoken between us and we all but forget the other existed at all. I even went to New York for 5 years and lived totally separate from everything I knew as a teenager.
I returned home to find my family more broken than before and I was pretty much alone. I was staying at my uncle's house and signed into aim out of boredom. I see an AIM ID logged in that i hadn't seen signed on in several years. It was Amber. I message her just to see what was up and to tell her i was back in town. She tells me to come scooper her up at 2 in the morning and we go back to my uncles and hang out and watch movies until the sun came up. We almost had sex but we didnt have a condom so it was a no-go. It turns out she almost always sleeps with the guys she hangs out with so the fact that we didnt was apparently a big deal.
We became inseparable after that night, constantly hanging out and helping each other. Both of our lives were in a shambles and we had each other to pick up the pieces and apply some glue. We caught up on each others lives told each other our darkest secrets and started building the most solid relationship I have ever been in.
I owe her everything, without Amber i wouldn't have my Son to blog about. I wouldn't have a life that was worthwhile.
