I get to keep my dream house and most of the “stuff” from the marriage. Most importantly, I get to keep Rocky and Millie. But the house seems a little bare and kind of quiet but we’re adjusting nicely.
The paperwork has been filed and the final hearing date has been set. There is a list of things that need to be done seems to grow every day. The more I get done, the more there is to be done.
I’m learning that the problems were way more obvious than I ever imagined. I’m always surprised when someone tells me they knew I had been unhappy for a long time.
I’m learning that it’s impossible to cook for one. So I cook the same amount as before, eat it for two meals, and then freeze the rest. It’s pretty nice to know that I have something to pull out of the freezer for supper if I forget to set something out before I leave for work.

I’m learning that I’m a lot stronger, smarter, talented than I ever imagined.
It’s been very liberating . . .
