How am I doing?

It's been a year since the split, and people are asking me how I am doing.  My answer? GREAT!   And yes, that is the truth.     I have my moments where I want to throw in towel and call quits. Hey, who doesn't?  That's pretty normal.   But I'm healing, and I'm learning that I'm not crazy. It's amazing!  I'm not the crazy one!! I never was!!!  It's mind-blowing.   I just finished reading Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft and it confirmed that I'm not crazy. I'm not stupid, I'm not crazy, I'm not lazy, I'm not a horrible person. I've just spent years either being told I was, or being made to feel like I was.

So now when I'm asked how I am doing, I can say GREAT.   Yeah, we're broke, we struggle with things that I hate struggling with, but really, life is great.    I can say that Life's been good to me so far(Thanks Joe Walsh).  :)   I haven't started dating, but I do have some prospects. I'm making some cuts to improve the financial situation and make things better.  Things are certainly looking up for all of us.

School's Out For summer!!

Sing with me!  School's Out For Summer!!!

Okay, okay, not until tomorrow.  Tomorrow is the last day of school. Super happy dance!!  Tomorrow is my son's last day of school. And his last day at this particular school, since I will be homeschooling him next year.  Yes, we are both very excited about that. He still wants to attend jr. high with his friends though, so he'll head back to public school in 7th grade. Unless things change between then and now.  The youngest is attending preschool, but only for a little while longer. Sadly I have to pull him out because I can't afford the cost of it.  We are all pretty bummed about that. Well, he may not be. I think he's tired of going.    My sweet children are ready to relax and sleep in. So am I. This getting up at 6:30 a.m. thing is getting really, really old.

So, we are ready for fun.. I hope I can dig up enough money to take the kids on vacation this year. We want to take our annual trip to my parents house, so hopefully we'll be able to do that this summer.  And if we're really lucky, maybe we can spend a day or two at the beach too.  But that's another 2-3 hour drive away from my parents house, so we may not make it.  That's okay. We'll have fun hanging out in the mountains and fishing and swimming anyway.

Have a great day everyone!!!!!!!
