Crawling out of the deep dark hole is a lot harder than it looks.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

The divorce is still on. He finally talked to a lawyer 3 1/2 months after telling me that he wanted out. Part of me still hops he will come around, but its time for me to start making solid plans for me and the kids.

The kids were upset when we told them about mommy and daddy no longer living together soon, but I told them that I was hoping to move someplace that had a pool. Suddenly they were wanting to move Right Now! Priorities, right?

I've looked at a few places, and have been making a list of "Must have" vs, "Would be nice, but can't afford it right now".
Must have includes two bedrooms, save area, decent school district.
"Would be nice" includes two bathrooms, three bedrooms, room for them to play, washer and dryer in the apartment.

I'm currently leaning towards the must have only so I can afford things like internet and cable so the kids have entertainment options.

I have been trying to go Primal with my eating, and had great success for the two weeks I managed it, but bread is my old comfort food, and I feel back on the bread wagon and have been having trouble getting off, even though I know I need to. So I've been trying to eat as little bread as possible, but some days its hard emoticon

On the fitness front, I signed up to do the Dirty Girl 5 K in October with friends, and have done NADA in the way of training. That will change, I will get started soon, but getting there is slow.

I haven't been crying as much, which is a plus, but those days that I do have breakdowns, the great big cloud of doom hangs over my head for a few days, but I have great friends who are there and support me, and two great kids who love me.

Ok that was just a quick update.

    Smart girl making the must have list. I cut back to bare bones in the beginning till I figured out how the financial situation looked on just my teaching salary. But I did not have kids at home. It's a hard thing to do. My girlfriends' 2 girls loved her small apt. for one becuse there was a pool! And Dad in the old house not far away.

    Hang in there and remmeber to breathe!
