This is the first I've heard of your story to up and move once Simone goes to college.

Let me be the first to tell you, your peeps in Denver will NOT let you make that departure.

You're free to take vacation as long as you ask in advance.

Your writing has matured so beautifully. Always good, but now has greater depth, showing vulnerability, which good writers are able to do.


Oh, no you di'n't. I don't know why you'd post this plan to leave Denver, knowing full well that Ean will not permit it. But I do think it's healthy to want more flexibility in your future life, and almost as admirable as it is to want to give Simone the stability she deserves.

I do hope you adhere to Ean's vacation guidelines, though. Wouldn't want you to get into any more trouble than you're in already...


Great article as usual Eric. After 10 cities in 20 years, I have to say that I love calling Denver home!

But am I the only hopeless romantic reading this who hopes that by the time Simone leaves for college, you aren't making those decisions alone? Rooting for The Dating Dad to find his true love!
