Hi ladies. Just an update =)

I think I posted our custody arrangement. 4 weekends month/summer and 3/weekends month school year to him. Plus 2 weeks vacation. 34% custody for him. We'll share holidays/alternate.

My stbx was being very evil at first but is calming down. He was threatening trial & to go for full custody. He then said he didn't really mean it... We are being more civil and making small changes to our schedule already to suit our needs. For example he has asked me to keep our son next weekend because his girlfriend is flying in to town. He has paid a bit of support but not the full amount - we'll see how that goes. We still have financial stuff to go through for our divorce (like our home) but I pray that goes smoothly and that there is no need for trial.

In general I am happy, so happy. Moving back home has been a blessing. My kids and I are so active with our family and my best friend who lives within walking distance. I have a small social life again and have actually gone out a few times with friends. I was doing a DivorceCare class in the beginning but I realized I'm not really heartbroken anymore. I'm okay. So now I power walk almost every night with my bestie and I take a burlesque dance class on Tuesdays with my sis, lol. We do so many things with the kids - day trips and projects. We just made tie dye tshirts for us to wear on our next outing =P

Anyway, I have appreciated all the support throughout this tough time. You ladies were, and continue t be, wonderful to me. Thank you.

  • Good to hear! (although I still secretly hope he cooks bacon naked and grease splatters on his balls!)
