Of course, it's got a lot of the same Lexi features that you have come to expect.

Raising Rivers as a Bluff
"Theme is Bluffing rivers raising rivers as a bluff. Like we've done a bunch of episodes those but those most exciting hands generally so that's why we do so. This had opened with me. Cut off with ace. Ten of spades. this is we are four handed playing five head. No limit cash I open the slogan foale. Three butts and the big blindfolds gonna be flagging a senator spades alday versus three but from blinds from the cutoff. So i call. Yeah this three sizing tell me about the sizing. It's like a little looks a little weird. But i don't really open to your size so this is like pretty close to this is that they should be through bettering to versus the two point. Two five i think like i don't know if you want to scale it like exactly. It would be like close to one hundred dollars but this is just i dunno. It's half the half a big wide less than that. So i think this is is is really. Yeah i would just go like one hundred ish but i mean whatever. They're they're dialing it back like point two five big blinds for this. I feel like they're using like some. Scroll like there's just lazily just kind of like scrolling and like okay ninety seven fifty. That's close maybe. I don't know. I i don't know if that's the case or not because i mean seems like there'd be more precise than that at there's some people like there's some people who three that and i can tell. Just click like they just click. The pop feel like three position that that number is exactly. What like see ladies and gentlemen if you've listened to deep patrick leonard episode of why he thought he could make a run at high stakes poker. That whole story. I suggest you listen to the podcasts. And because that's just a hilarious story. And this is kind of alludes to that that i guess we should never underestimate the laziness of poker players and even the highest of stakes maybe even especially the highest stakes poker players. Why did you say that. Why especially just. Because like i think the i i just think that the highest of stakes poker players can get a little lazy. They can't get lackadaisical they can you know get less hungary. They can just be playing to make money every single month. Then just get kind of distracted not zone and whatever i mean like you said to be fair ninety seven fifty one hundred one. Those are all perfectly fine through bet sizes. So they are they are so we get this gorgeous flop of five of hearts in eight of clubs and a nine of spades and fabulous check-check. Let's start there to check on the flop your check back but do you think about banning the flop stabbing the flop checking back stabbing the stabbing these like low and middling flops With range if you wanted to facing check is probably fine I think with a hand. That's worse than as hype certainly Be way more inclined to stop. But when i block villain from having like eisai. Hans himself I think that i am going to be ahead of white. A large portion of villains Range at that. I if i stop the swap with this sort of hand i'm really just getting mostly worshipful I'm a little skeptical though like. I'm i'm skeptical. That you're gonna always realize what year even a high percentage of the time realize equity on a variety of different run out like you are being king queen but like you know. Are you always going to realize equity and just call down on blank run outs. Well i mean if you wanna see what i could prove it to the fans. If you're on a you prove something. I don't know don't know that you prove you're gonna call down but we prove very talks about the theme of the episode so yeah and then also like especially with this eight ten of spades with like eight and nine with a spade on board. It's like it's way more painful to get check raised off of this. I think when you have like a ton of diamonds for example like there's equity more equity tibi realized on this particular board with stem space. So i if. I bet the swap and get check raised. I'd be way sadder than if i had said of. Diamonds are like king queen. Whatever and got chuck

He's like this is complete nonsense. And we're not gonna hear or listen to her. Pay attention to it. How do we explain this phenomena. Zach is this just the former president was very compelling at a local level. And he has this. I don't know tens of millions strong base of support. That will follow him into the dark or is there something else going on here to know. I think there has been a long running in concerted effort by the republican party to use the states as mechanisms for exercising wielding and controlling power on a permanent basis. So for instance in two thousand ten There's something called project read map. Which is a national republican coordinated campaign to do as much gerrymandering as possible in the wake of the two thousand ten census and the party's victory in the twenty tunnel elections that led to take over a number of state houses. And so what you saw. At the state levels in terms of redrawing the maps to ensure the republicans would adorable majority's In the national house ended local state houses that was done very deliberately with input from national parties with the effort of creating states based institutions that Become a really important part of the national party's ability to rig the system in their favor right and that speaks to the role that state parties play in american politics right. Now they're not these hyper local institutions anymore. There's a bunch of research from political scientists that shows that increasingly if you look at state party platforms. They are more and more focused on national topics and less and less focused on local ones and they start to sound more and more like each other. And i think a lot of this has to do with both the extremism and the National focus of media nowadays like you used to have a lot of fragmented media marquette's or local politicians and the voters they answered to are really concerned about hyper local issues but now with the decline in local newspapers for example and the increasing prevalence of online news outlets that have a national focus and also highly ideological not just online right also the rise of false news and its competitors like newsmax.

The people who engage in politics are really concerned with are the same thing that everyone everywhere is really concerned about and just practically speaking. What does that mean for the future.

Vote where more. Gop members broke ranks to join democrats to to say. The president crossed the line here. He helped incite this mob. And yet you have this other phenomenon. Here where people who voted for what they deemed right and true are now being punished and may who knows lose their seats because of it. There's a wild quote from pennsylvania republican official talking about why. He's angry at pat toomey. We did not send him there. Voters conscience. We did not send in there to do the right thing or whatever you setting knowing which is pretty striking right like vat in of itself is pretty horrifying but then he goes on to say something else. We showed him there to represent us with that. Means if you unpack it a little bit. Is the view the job of a representative to be not voting for what they believe is right not exercising their own judgement but reflecting the will specifically of the people who supported him not everybody in the state the people who voted for him that narrow slice of the population that is republican and willing to vote republican in senate elections. So if that's your theory of representativeness you're basically telling members of congress and the government to outsource their judgment to a base that's become more and more extreme and has been made more extreme by national politicians either for very trumpy reasons which are a combination of actually believing these things and Political cruelty or for this more cynical reasons that making people more extreme helps get them out to vote for you.

Trump lot of people who are on the republican side are worrying about them being replaced by marjorie taylor. Green type true believer believer and there are some of those in the senate to at least you. You think there might be people who really genuinely believe what trump is saying and another rationale is not so much fear of primary concerns as it is viability in one's own primary bid two thousand twenty four to run the republican ticket. And so you've got people like Josh hawley ted cruz and tom cotton. Who are united by the fact that they wanna be president. One day and to do that. That needed court. The trump vote and according to trump vote means not voting to convict. Let's talk about the senate minority leader for a moment here mitch. Mcconnell had signalled that he was open to hearing the arguments made by the democratic impeachment managers. They made a very compelling argument and he still didn't break ranks. Do we know why so. Mcconnell seemed like he was ready to jettison trump especially after he literally endangered his personal safety in life but didn't happen and that's enough republicans defecting that mcconnell felt like he could shepherd his entire caucus towards voting to convict trump. Or at least a large enough amount number of it that that that it wouldn't break up and lead to a sort of real crackup in the republican party over this and there were some rumblings most notably in a cnn piece that an open break between mcconnell and trump would lead to him losing leadership position in his speech. He points to the fact that the issue here is constitutional. You can't impeach a president who no longer in office. If president trump were still in office. I would have carefully considered whether the house managers prove their specific charge. But in this case the question is moot because former president trump trump is constitutionally or conviction even though if i have this right. Mcconnell is responsible for this trial happening. Once the former president vacated his office it was mcconnell who delayed the trial. No credit credit. It's failing that to me. Is the single biggest indicator transparently political all. This as his rationale was something that he could have addressed if he was sincerely concerned about it. Like if you really thought that what you would be doing was creating a situation in which the trial itself or an unconstitutional preceding then. You wouldn't have schedule that when you scheduled at or forced it to be scheduled when you force it to be scheduled more accurately well. Let's talk about members of his party. Who perhaps voted with their conscience. Instead of making a nakedly political move here who are the seven. Some of them are familiar. Save god mitt romney who voted to convict trump the last time. Then you have a susan. Collins from maine and lisa murkowski from alaska both of whom are known to be much more moderate than the rest of the republican senate caucus ben sasse from nebraska who is trying to build his brand as a thoughtful republican pat toomey from pennsylvania who is very conservative but to me was very offended by the way that trump impugned the integrity of the pennsylvania. Political system to one of the problems is the campaign officials. They go on. Tv and they make all kinds of Shocking allegations of fraud. Then they go into a courtroom where there are consequences for lying to adjudge right and they don't make those allegations anymore and so it seems in part that was reacting to trump's attack on the election in its entirety. Then you've got richard burr from north carolina. Who was a real surprise. Actually voted to say. The trial was unconstitutional itself. But then said look. Once we've determined the trials constitutional. I had to listen to the evidence. And once i listened to the evidence than trump should have been convicted. Bursts said impart quote the evidence is compelling that president trump is guilty of inciting an insurrection therefore voted to convict and the last one who's surprising number of levels is senator. Bill cassidy from louisiana cassidy is running for reelection. He's up again. Two thousand twenty six. Which means he's very vulnerable to a primary challenge on these grounds and in a surprise vote. Basically saying cues persuaded by the case that house democrats made and it's like it's odd right to hear a senator saying that their vote was actual league grounded in what happened on the senate. What an inspiration yet. It's kind of nice and refreshing but it almost seems like that's what actually happens like he's not just making stuff up but the serious he believes it now on impartial juror and one size doing a great job and the other side's doing a terrible job on the issue at hand as an impartial juror. I'm gonna vote for the side of the did the good job. And how's that.

"Helpful. Thank brad So that get you caught up. But what does this mean going forward on a quickly bringing. Abc's political director recline. And rick. i mean what human mcconnell there it was as if he was saying out loud. Oh trump is totally guilty of inciting insurrection. I'm just not going to vote guilty. Like like what are the considerations that republicans were making in their minds over the weekend. Yep right it's wild. This mcconnell sounded like someone who really wanted to vote guilty and thinks now maybe the justice. Marvin should be investigating president. Trump's conduct the structured limitation to the wrong. For everything you did while didn't get away with anything and i think for a lot of republicans they were split between the clear judgment based on the facts in what they witnessed donald. Trump's did something really bad and it deserves to be called out. In fact i think for the future of the party they feel like it has to be called out but there were just a number of questions answered time line for some combination of technical legal reasons and broad political considerations namely the republican base kind disagrees with an uncomfortable. A lot of them found that they were pulling a punch in that final vote and did not in fact vote guilty to have only those seven republicans crossover with the democrats was itself. A statement about donald trump continued. Hold on the party yet. What did the math tell us. Like the senators who voted guilty. I mean why were they. Okay voting guilty and the the not guilty. People voting not guilt familiar. Mix of folks who who aren't going to face the voters again Who are up for a little while or who have personal political brands. That are so distinct from the from the president but it's funny seven fifty that's fourteen percent are poll out this morning. Our abc news poll this morning. Fourteen percent of republicans nationwide trump should have been found guilty. It's exactly the same math. That's exactly it's incredible. How the party is divided at this moment. And that is that is quite a statement and again fourteen percent doesn't sound like a lot but think about how popular president trump has been inside his own party. His popularity rating is typically been well into the nineties so you're seeing republicans turn albeit slowly. But i guess. I'm confused because you got all these senators who clearly think president trump did something bad. That shouldn't run again but didn't this vote. Keep him as the face of the republican party like he can run again now for whatever he wants and who else really is. they're practically. that could stop him. He is going to view this as vindication of rightly or wrongly. But i do think it's a reflection of of where we're at now for the party. Seven republicans voted to convict trump. At least one is already feeling the political backlash louisiana's republican party saying it has unanimously voted to censure senator bill cassidy because he voted to convict. You're part of the problem dc. Don't expect a warm welcome when you come home to louisi- and your i had the privilege of having the facts. before me. republican elected office holders are now a leading from behind when it comes to their voters. The voters are somewhere that they really can't even bold. And i said mr president This maga- movement needs to continue We need to unite the party. Trump plus the way back in two thousand twenty two and the view among many republicans including so. I talked to in the last last couple of weeks. They recognize that i. It didn't matter for for trump's hold on so many voters it doesn't matter what the facts are. it doesn't matter what the judgment of elected officials are ultimately. It's gonna take a long time to wind down trumpism and this vote may have been something of an opportunity. But even this wouldn't have quieted president trump supporters and bizarrely. This wouldn't necessarily be the end for president trump because the biden justice department could still be looking into stuff if the whole rationale is. Hey we can't touch him. He's not the president anymore at the justice department could but can't imagine that joe biden wants to go down that path. He's ready for this to be the biden era. Not the trump era any longer Recline thanks so much. Thanks brad next time on. start here. School's out forever. at least. That's what it sounds like the parents.

Tv sunday morning. Check out the podcast version of the show wherever you get your podcast At a small private school in north hollywood this morning teachers and students have no problem heading into class because recently teachers and staff there were able to get vaccinated by local hospital which enraged families in the rest of los angeles because teachers there are actually not yet eligible to get vaccinated. I feel like they cut in light of course because how else are you made aware of this without vaccines the a. Teacher's union says it's a health risk to return and as a result the public schools are still closed there while this private school with tuition rates around three thousand dollars. A year is opened. The local hospital says this is actually their fault. They reach out to schools nearby and nate their teachers. Sorry we had the wrong timeline. Well some of the hospital brass have children that yes go to this private school. Getting schools open still one of the biggest hot button issues in the country last week the cdc announced it was going to provide guns on how schools could do this safely. That guidance did not come until the very last day of the week. But it's here. Abc's and florida who covers federal agencies. And what is the cdc saying schools. So on vaccinations brad. They're saying that teachers don't have to be vaccinated to come back to school and to do it safely. They are however sticking with mass and they are talking about six feet of distance. And that's no matter how high the transmission is in your area. I want to underscore that. The safest way to open schools is to ensure that there is as little disease as possible in the community. They've said this before masks and social distancing but these guidelines actually tie it to community transmission level. So they say. Do you live in a blue area. Low transmission Yellow orange or red the highest level of transmission. And if you're living in those red areas they give you specific guidance that absolute feet of distance among students You're.

Download the APP and drove to an empty parking lot in my town I sat in my car for a few minutes with my eyes closed and took some deep well I cleared my mind and focused on my intent. The thought in my head was clarity on what I, WanNa do for a career. So the intention cleared that's a good one. I think. So recently, I've been struggling between picking between two of my very different passions. Part of me wants to be a tattoo artists and the other wants to be a lawyer you can be both. Why Not Yeah. I mean I guess they probably saying like they didn't know which one to put their energy toward two different paths. Anyway I figured I'd use the APP for basically just shingles. with my intent in my mind and speaking it aloud I, pressed the button and it generated the coordinates and put them into my map. It was about ten minutes away in a part of my town that I haven't been to and I started driving and eventually stopped at a stop light less than half a mile from the location I figured I should be aware of my surroundings looked ahead of me and right across the street from the Stop Light was a tattoo shop. I instantly had bombs, but I also felt a little bit disappointed I guess while I still had a little bit to drive. So I turned right at the stoplight and no joke right around the corner was a district court? Oh. Maybe it was just all the hype from the APP, but it just seemed too weird for coincidence that it had me drive on route with a a tattoo shop and district court that were practically right across the street from one another I don't live in a big town. So it was pretty weird coincidence. I've kind of it's like did not give you clarity at all literally just brought you till like your. End that's it doesn't take you to like.

"Natalie's marriage grew more and more strained with more fighting between her and her husband although she says she threatened to divorce before she never planned on actually going through with Eh but after one particularly terrible night she impulsively called a lawyer and began the process of filing for divorce the next day she she didn't have much of a plan for her life and kids and no money saved up to cover legal fees but she assumed her divorce would be as traditional as her marriage. I was under the impression that mother's custody and father's got every other weekend one day a week and that was what I filed for because that's what society teaches us a traditional divorce. Looks like but Natalie's divorced didn't follow this tidy little script at one point about about two years in her temporary arrangement. was that Natalie no longer had the kids on the weekends which meant. She didn't have her kids on Chabad. A very family oriented oriented time for religious Jews with big Friday night meal. She would watch her neighbors through the window eating dinner together as a family. Those years were really hard hard for me. I saw my neighbors having this beautiful life and here I was alone because I was without my support system I they was without my routine I was without my family and there was a point in the divorce where it was extremely contentious and and I thought nobody was listening to me. I felt like I was consistently losing and I was so frustrated and I was Sitting in my house on a Friday night alone and I just started to cry and I said God. Why are you doing this to me and I saw we have something called the Minnesota? It's a scroll that has a blessing from God that we put on the door to protect the entrance of the the door and as I was crying and I had tears in my eyes my eyes were fixed on this Missouri on my door and in a fit fit of anger I just tore every single one of them off my door and rip them into pieces and let them on fire. I was so angry and that was my breaking point during the divorce was about to issue years into it. It was really hard if it just sounds like you felt so abandoned both both by your family community but also by God every single thing was going wrong every single motion. I put in was denied. Every single thing that I try to say was twisted against me and I felt like I could do no right at that point I was also financially ruined. I had to give my savings to legal fees and then liquidate my assets and then go into debt to pay legal fees and I just so angry at God I said God. Why are you doing this to me? Why why did you put me in this situation? Why did you you have to? I saw people like me. Were supposed to have a happy ending. Sorry I'm crying but fairytales. I always teach us that the kid that was bullied the kid that had it bad growing up would grow up and have a happy ending and when I got married I thought that was going to be my happy ending. Natalie would eventually get her happy ending just not in the way. She thought we'll be right back. Hi Senior Producer Rachel McCarthy.

And we're back Natalie. Antar is the mother of two young kids who are now six and five. Four years ago she decided to get divorced thinking the process of gaining custody would be pretty straightforward however it turned out to be anything but simple it started to stretch out for years ears with lots of lawyers and fighting and after almost three years of learning pretrial back and forth going in and out of family court art. Natalie felt like she just couldn't do it anymore at that point. I was so at the end of my rope. I was financially exhausted. I was emotionally exhausted. My kids were stressed out because I was stressed out and he will stress trust down. Everyone was stressed out. So the judge was I have to tell you she was the most amazing judge. She got off her bench and she sat down in front of us and said listen. You guys have to agree. I said drought her. I just want I want fairness I want fifty fifty custody. Even though at first I wanted wanted full I said I wanNA compromise. And he's would not budge and she said okay. We don't have a choice. Let's get trial dates. And so so. It was like a scene from a movie. I was sending the defendant share with my lawyer. He was sitting in the plaintiff chair and he had his lawyer another lawyer in another lie killed three lawyers sitting there and I stood up and said your honor my lawyers like sit down. I said No. I said I'D WANNA go to trial. Just give just give me one less day a week. Let him be the custodial him have all the power. I don't care I don't care I just want to end this. And and she paused for a moment and she looks at us and she points his just done and it was like a scene from a movie. Everyone's jaw dropped. The courtroom erupted. And he said your honor. You can't do that. And his lawyers were objecting. Said you're right. I can't but what I could do is make you pay every single penny of a trial so you have decision to make you rather take this the deal or you go to trial. And he was kind of painted into a corner and he didn't have a choice so we went out into the hallway. His lawyer had already prepared a settlement agreement and I was sitting there trying to leave through it as quickly as possible. It was like forty five pages of my warriors just standing on top. Come on sign that sign up. I want to read it ultimately. I got forty three eight percent of the time with my children. He got fifty seven percent. He got final decision making on the important decisions like school medical religion. But I didn't care because I agreed on all that and the only reason that I would object to it would be because might ego would say well why should I give him final decision. Making why should he make all decisions. But I really had to override. That egotistic feeling and say okay. This is I'm giving all of this up for the greater good for the benefit of moving on with my life for the benefit of still seeing my children a lot like if I would have gone to trial I would be fighting for one more day a week. He gets four more days a month than I do so on paper Natalie lost her a custody battle in recent years. It's become increasingly common for Dads to win when there's a dispute although she gets to be with their kids forty three percent for some time and she's made peace with that. Natalie has no legal or decision making power in their lives and despite the fact that these arrangements are becoming coming more common. There is definitely still a big stigma around mothers who don't have custody of their kids. The reactions Natalie gets when she reveals that but she's a non-custodial mother well they aren't exactly kind so one time Mother asked me about to receiving child support. And I said Oh no. I don't receive child support. And she said why and I said because the father has majority custody and she said why why. What's what's wrong with you? Nothing or one time. Somebody asked me like what did you do or you don't want to be a mother. Most of the reactions are just these. Their face twists into this strange disgusted. Look like what is going on. People are so shocked it was sometimes hard to know. People saw her that way but natalie started to embrace her role and.

"Rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck. But what about a catastrophic hurricane in two thousand eleven natalie. Antar was twenty six years old and described herself as an ultra orthodox Jewish woman. Her wedding was scheduled for the day. Hurricane Irene made landfall fall on her community in New York. I actually had a friend who was laughing. And she's like you know. This is a sign from God narrowly WanNa back out. This is your chance but Natalie. Allie didn't back out and proceeded to have a very soggy wedding the next day. I have a picture of me walking down the aisle and you know Brian are usually happy. Be and they're excited and they're smiling from ear to ear. I looked like a prisoner. Being led to the Guillotine not happy that image of Natalie looking like a prisoner being led to the Guillotine says so much about how much she was willing to sacrifice to live a traditional married life but today story isn't just about her marriage. It's about her divorce. And how after two kids her unconventional split forced her to rethink. I think what it means to be a good amd fulfilled mother because she now has no legal custody over her children This is the show about a new generation of working mothers. We're challenging how society sees moms and how we see ourselves. I'm your host Captain Goldstein. Every mother works and mom's face all kinds of deep seated social and economic issues and here the double shift. We are not pretending we can just life. Hack our way out of these problems so this season we're getting up close and personal with our guests. Yes because we believe the revolution at work and in society begins with a revolution in our homes will explore the idea That families don't have to be conventional to be successful and that support for parents can come from the most unexpected places this the season two of the double shift. The Revolution begins at home today. We're talking with thirty four year old Natalie. Antar who has has no legal custody of her kids. She was raised in a very religious environment. It tell me a little bit about your life growing up I grew up. In Uh extremely ultra Orthodox Jewish community. My family was in the cookie cutter ideal family. I grew up in my aunt's house house. My Mom and dad were kind of in and out but my aunt was the primary parental figure in my life and I never felt like I fit in. I went to a school where most of the girls came from an upper middle class family and none of the parents were divorced. None of the families families had issues at least on that I knew of and I was always kind of the odd one out kind of like Kenny. From South Park was the poor dirty kid that was kind of neglected elected and I didn't fit in. Tell me a little bit about what are some of the restrictions and expectations of girls and young women and the Ultra Orthodox community. A lot of the religious restrictions are based on dress in my community. So the way that your skirt fits how longer skirt as your elbows. Having to be covered that like I remember getting sent home from school once because I wore a form fitting sweater but not a button-down shirt. Underneath my collarbone was showing I would wear makeup. Makeup wasn't allowed. Nail Polish wasn't allowed. Some religious sects even mandate how thicker pantyhose half to be. There's a lot of the things that I consider frivolous. For example I once went into an ophthalmologist and he had drawers with the different names of the different sects on them. And and I jokingly ethics and why is that and he said well each sect has a mandate a chief of glasses the allowed to wear like that is ridiculous. In Natalie's world in Borough Park Brooklyn. She didn't have any role models for what a working woman was with the exception of teachers and a couple of other professions so she found herself making up her own idea of what it meant to work. I imagined myself as a businesswoman. I didn't know what the Business Moore woman was. But I will play with my barbies and I'd imagine the morning suits and carrying briefcases. Because what I would go into Manhattan I I would see these women walking around with these power suits and briefcases and I just wanted a career that allowed me to be powerful and in charge of my own life as opposed to being dependent on a man. Women in Natalie's community often get married in their late teens or early twenties and by the time her early early twenties rolled around although she'd hope to graduate from college and have a career. Friends and relatives told her she wasn't getting any younger and it was time for her to settle down out and get married. I didn't really feel like I had many prospects. Most of my friends were going on. Arranged dates called shadow home. That's where the US for dating for marriage and they were picky and I felt like I did not have a right to be picky picky because I did not have a good reputation. I was kind of a bad girl growing up always looking for negative attention. Because I didn't feel like I had that attention at home. I didn't come from a family with a lot of money. I didn't have a special bloodline. Recall it cohoes and I didn't really feel like I brought a lot to the table so I wasn't confident about my marriage prospects. It's Natalie was introduced to a man who she became friends with and he expressed an interest in marrying her. Natalie wasn't sure it was going to be a great fit but she didn't feel like she. She had any right to be choosy so she accepted his proposal. I was hesitant but I pushed that hesitation down because I said here's a man that loves me. Here's a man that wants to take care of me. Here's a man that will aid me and building the Jewish home that I always wanted to have and and I did express my hesitation to people in my life and they said that in Judaism love comes after the marriage. ORIG- love groves. After they got married Natalie had two kids in quick succession and as a new mom. She placed a huge amount of pressure on herself itself growing up. I had a lot of junk food because junk food was easy to get so I wanted my child to have good nutrition so I would make everything from scratch even made chicken soup from scratch. I would simmer the bones in a crock pots to make the base for the soup. And then I would freeze them. Portions Russians and everything would be organic. And everything would be high-quality ingredients. I just wanted my child to have the best of the best. My children were dressed immaculately. I am invested an enormous amount of time and energy into making sure that everything was perfect and perfection is exhausting. It is exhausting but I felt like I had to overcompensate because I was so afraid that my children would lack like I lack as a child was there any particular hardest moment because having to really little kids together is really challenging. When you're home all day by yourself was there ever a really hard moment or that you remember or or longing for a sort of any kind of different life? When I was a stay at home mother with two little babies might? My kids are nineteen eighteen months apart. My downstairs neighbor my shoes. My landlord actually. My landlord would work outside the home. She was a speech therapist so every day she would come home around four o'clock and I would stand by the window to see her walking down the street and I would go downstairs to pretend like I was getting the mail or something just so I can have a conversation and ask her about her day. Because I felt so trapped in my own life and I felt like my brain was rotting and I just it was so pathetic. I would literally stand by the window because I wanted to know About her work I was. I was so jealous. It's so pathetic thinking back on it but that was the highlight of my day at some point that it doesn't sound pathetic at all. So did you did. You have very clear gender roles in your home and did you ever. Did you feel like you were an equal with your husband vendor with things very sort of traditional so things traditional but I didn't necessarily feel they were unequal. Because I understood that we both had Had different roles in the marriage he was one who worked. He was the one that earned the money. He was the one that took care of the bills. He was the one that took care of the finances and I was the take care of the children. I was the one who hooked on cleaned and we were like a Yin Yang. He did what he was supposed to do. And I did what I was supposed. So do I never really saw it as being unfair. I just saw it as US complementing each other but you did have a sense that there was something missing in your life in terms of intellectual intellectual stimulation or things that you could that you had a part of yourself that wasn't being fully used in this role. Absolutely I felt my brain was melting. I needed intellectual stimulation very badly but the role that I had assigned to myself didn't allow for that. I would wake up and the first thing I would see was the four walls of my bedroom and it kind of felt like a prison felt like a prison of my own making doc and I feel very trapped..

dropping out of college and enlisting the father understood that significant life changes weren't the best circumstances under which to enlist it was the lesson that the sun had to learn because actually a girl I met one of my classes and we started hanging out a little bit more and before note we were dating and and buddy you're Li sure so maybe a little bit longer actually proposed and we were engaged not quite a year about six months before our wedding she was finishing up her education degree and she was going to last student teaching as right before Christmas so we had an apartment together and she we're going to have dinner and then she was going to go home for Christmas and then starter student teaching down there and she went to lay down for an APP woke up said that she was just going to head down to where she lived and I never saw her again got a phone call two days before Christmas and she said that it's some that she she just didn't feel right going forward with and that was it never Oregon never heard why and it kind of like an emotional state you know I just kind of thought like Hell I plan my life out for the next however long and a lot of things that I order on hold and it's kind of when I started looking back on on what I did truly one life and had that kind of come to Jesus moment that if I want to be in the military now the best time to to make it happen both my parents had seen would were has done to others they knew what that cost was two uncles at served in Vietnam and boom had very hard time coming home and we were you know his two thousand five began two thousand six so we're Iraq and really starting to heat up by that point we're still in Afghanistan and and both of them were concerned but they knew that you know as an adult is making my own decision and they always knew that it was something I wanted to do so I was they were very supportive after having put service off to develop a relationship that dematerialize digital resolve to at least give the military a chance still barely in his mid twenties elected to join the National Guard having spent some time in the workforce the disciplined wasn't an issue and the physicality didn't appear to be at first I but he fractured his ankle early on and worried about being recycled fighting through the discomfort in the occasional backslide prepared duty or for combat better than he knew it would at the time it also made the final test that much sweeter so we went through our our nine weeks of basic training we had like our two weeks of our advanced individual training and the culmination of that event the last week is is you spend the week out in the field and you live in a a hole in the ground and you're you pull security and you run admissions and you you're basically wargame and you're putting all of your training and everything into like a field training exercise Nafti actor and at the very is day you break everything down pack everything up and then you ruck march all the way back to the main base there sandhill so we're marching through the night the coolest time and it's probably still on the seventies or something at night still really humid everybody's just beat down and tired exhausted down a forbidding they have a place called Honor Hill so as you finish up that last March you you walk up this hill and as you cross the top of the hill they have these giant Gates and assign over the top says unlike the finest warriors the world has ever seen a have gone through these gates and they open up these doors and you want can they have these giant pallet bonfires and it's everybody breaks out there canteen and they got this big jug of Grog it's like a mix of all kinds of power aids and all that kind of stuff unfortunately there's no alcohol that'd been awesome everybody takes a big scoop of it and then you go out and you say like your soldiers creed and you're you're infantry creed and then they pin your coveted crossed rifles on your that signifies it that you have now joined the Brotherhood of the infantry you've completed your task so being able to see complete that like I said you know I I injured my ankle pretty severely and that was a sign that it's over and I've made it and everything that I've worked hard for and everything you know blood for all the pain and everything like that has finally been achieved this is what I came here to do and now I am part of that that infantry brotherhood I've I've earned those crossed rifles by two thousand and six National Guard was deployed to more than just Iraq and Afghanistan did he found himself on a peacekeeping mission in Kosovo he'd be on dating April the woman did he would eventually marry and proposed pretty much as soon as he got back from the deployment which worked out well because by the time they were married he knew he is headed to Afghanistan so in the national guard it never fails if you have something that you're GonNa plan for next year it will feel fall on a day that you cannot attended we got engaged and we set a date for the next year and as it turns out our wedding date happened to be on a drill weekend so you know my buddies and stuff they weren't able to come they are already knew that we were rationale for Afghanistan so we were having much bigger drew weekends and stuff like that so as we had the rehearsal dinner all the families and stuff like that we'd actually pulled up in front of the House after that when my phone rang and it was my platoon sergeant calling me he said we're just wishing you congratulations and we were sorry we couldn't be there so as he's reading the warning order that's being put out and we are officially being deployed I'm trying to keep my composure and and sort of act like yeah I'm sorry guys couldn't make it man see I would love to have you there we appreciate you trying to play that role 'cause because April sitting right beside me so I'm trying to internally not panic because the last thing I want is for her to find this out the very next morning wedding day comes everybody's kind of rolling I'm in and immediately like I got all my guys in my family together and stuff and I told him that I was just like listen we got the call last night and I on after the wedding and we get everything back from the hotel were kind of settling in stuff and I I sat her down I said Hey I need to talk to you and then I told her that that we got the order in what the chain of events are going to look for training and when we'd be leaving at that point so she is she is pretty crushed but
