One Year Later

It has been a year since the night I left my third husband. I had only my youngest daughter, the clothes on our backs and a few odds and ends. Over the last year we've made a lot of changes, and they are slowly but surely proving to be for the better and the best for us. Grab a drink and reflect with me.

We landed on a mountain top in South Carolina with a full support system in place. It took a while to stop saying "I want to go home" and a while for the kiddo to adjust to the first couple of changes but we made it.

Six months on the mountain led to some rather strange accomplishments for me since there was no one to interfere with the results I was trying to achieve. I managed to get used to the camper, sort of. I was a bit better at losing things in the tiny space than one might imagine.

I walked all of two minutes to work each day once I passed the certifications test and full filled all of the requirements to be a line therapists. I even managed to save $1,000 while I was there. The short kid had friends at home and at school. I learned that I had to go on all of her field trips with her, but that is another story.

Now we are in a place that is completely flat and I readily await the day my divorce is final. I am not sad that my marriage is ending, but rather I am more excited than I have been about anything in my life time.

We have made friends from strangers and enjoyed a school environment that is nurturing and peaceful. The world is falling into place and we are standing tall.

The year is coming to a close and we will celebrate new freedoms along with it. How well are you adjusting to the changes in your world?

First Full Day of Christmas Vacation!!!

Here's hoping that Vacation is better than the weeks leading up to it. Let me fill you in on the events since Thanksgiving and you'll understand why I am hoping it is better or at least illness free. Not only has my mini me been sick but it's put me under the weather as well. 

Almost Vacation Time!!

Tomorrow is the last day of school before Christmas Vacation! It's only a half day so that means today is my last chance to ensure everything is completed before then. Theresa has already made the mandatory cookie purchase for Santa Clause.

Happy Birthday. Here's hoping you don't need a hoover cab to get home! (or maybe that you will)

Happy Halloween! Time to change out of my bitch persona and turn into something festive like a goblin. Shorty is not so short anymore but she still loves to dress up and see how many people she can get to bend to her will.

Another year has passed, and still nothing major has happened unless you count being happy for the entire year.
