In a previous post, I mentioned having some changes to my schedule. What I didn't mention, is that a good chunk of these changes in my schedule have been happening due to my schedule changing with the kids. Wow, that was a mouthful. I'll just be honest and say, the first week of the change … Continue reading Change: Part II.
I'm not one for being standoff-ish. It's come to a point where I've just had to stick up for me. Set my boundaries and take care of myself [and mental health] FIRST. It's been a few months already being more firm with boundaries with the ex-husband. As time goes on and we have less interaction, … Continue reading Boundaries V.
Compromising My Health.
I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this here but, you MIGHT not know this about me: I'm gluten intolerant. Well, okay it looks like I did VAGUELY in THIS post.

As of March 2nd, I was officially divorced. We had the final divorce hearing on February 16th, everything went well. We just had to wait for the judge to sign off. Technically we've been unofficially divorced since that day, but I was waiting to have the decree in hand that made it "official." When I … Continue reading Divorced.
