Just sent the email off to my lawyer asking him to proceed with filing.

If I wait to get through the junk with my Dad I will be waiting a very long time. That situation is just not going to be a fast thing. At. All.

I'm a little nervous but so ready to move on with the next phase of my life, officially. August will be a year since we separated and three years since the Atom Bomb went off in my life. It's time.

My middle child (6) asked me tonight if I wanted Daddy to move back. I said "I think I like the way things are now, sweetie." She asked if we were going to break up, and I told her that we already did. I think that the transition has been slow enough that this will not be too too hard on them. I am scared for them, but hope to make this as easy and uneventful as possible.

I think it takes 3 months for everything to be finalized. So I'm actually looking at this being final right around my 33rd birthday.

It will be bittersweet...but definetly more sweet than bitter.


  1. Your last line there reminds me of a line from my favorite movie: "Just remember, the sweet is never as sweet without the sour - And I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet."

    Just finished reading your "The List of Me..." - pretty amazing stuff. #20 in particular made me so sad - I am the same exact way now and really don't know why... Hope we can figure this one out!

  2. I am so proud of you. Its a big step but definitely one that is in the right direction. We've got your back girl!

  3. oops...that was really from me not from nodnarB! love ya!

  4. It's actually 60 days from the time you file until you can finalize. ;)

    Hang in there! You're a great mom and have so many people supporting you.

  5. thinking of you...was just wondering what the latest was on this. HUGS
