An Update on Me

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Wow, its been a wild ride the last month and a half.

Long story short, back in March my husband said he didn't want to be married to me anymore and asked for a divorce. he said he still loved me, and that he still considered me one of his best friends, just didn't think we worked as a married couple.


I was floored and have been in a bad frame of mind.

We did go to marriage counseling, but the cards were stacked against us since he went in with the frame of mind that he was DONE (and not in a DONE GIRL way)

So that all said and done, we are still living under the same roof, and haven't filed yet. he wants to hold off on any moving/filing until after we get the house sold. I've told him since he is the one wanting a divorce, then it is his job to get cleaned up and on the market. I'm not helping right now.

But in the mean time, I have been looking for apartments that are in a good, safe neighborhood, away from the two universities in town (lower rent) and have let my boss know that I will probably have to look for a better paying job.

As of right now we haven't told the kids, I think we are waiting for things to be more final/settled before we do. This is going to be super hard on them.

I'm terrified at the thought of starting out again as a single mom. But I'm starting to make plans for myself.

And I have the perfect plan, operation one hot single momma is ready to get started. emoticon

Details soon.

    Yes, that's usually the case. By the time those words are spoken aloud, rarely thaere's any going backwards. Good for you for standing you ground on the house. Do what you need to do to be prepared to go out on your own.
