A Breath Of Fresh Air

Air… We have to have it to survive and at the same time if it is filled with toxic gases it can kill you.

It seems like for the past 7 years I have been breathing horrible, toxic filled air. For the past 2 years I have been trying to rise above the fumes and this past weekend I have succeeded. I am now breathing fresh air and I love it!

This past weekend I have finally left my husband and I have moved into my own little place with my youngest daughter. Our divorce is nearing the very last phase.

A few weeks ago I stumbled onto some cute little townhouses. I feel in love with the place right off the bat! I picked my youngest up from school and we went straight back to go look at the place. Before we even parked the car my daughter said, “We are moving into this place!” I went the next day and signed the lease.

The second day we were in our place my oldest daughter came over for dinner. For the first time since I can remember she looked like she was at home. She didn’t have to worry about spilling something and getting yelled at, or moving her eyes to look at something and getting accused of rolling her eyes.

I can also sense a huge sigh of relief from my youngest. She doesn’t have to worry about doors slamming throughout the house. She no longer has to listen to all of the negativity that she had to hear every single day.

And here I sit on my couch doing what I want to do, when I want to do it and the way I want it done!

Ahhhh…. Fresh Air!

  1. I’m happy and sad for you all at the same time. A new beginning is always fun but letting go is hard too so just know I’ve been thinking of you constantly and am looking forward to seeing some pics.

  2. I agree with Joy on the Happy for you but also sad at the same time. The house does sound really cute. And the feeling of being able to breathe, I know that feeling. Being able to relax and to call your own shots that’s a wonderful freedom.

  3. Just checking in Hope your world is well. It sounded like you were keeping very busy. I guess busy a good thing. :+) Just thinking about you and wanted to say Hi.

  4. it’s been so long. i have you on my blogroll so it’s pretty much obvious i go read your blog every once in a while for updates. this post surprised me though, but then again why would i be surprised when i have not been on the blog world for many months now. i see the changes in your life… both bitter and sweet. I wish you well though, and i would be here more often. Good luck. and Bless you and your daughters. 🙂

  5. I know I should do the right thing and say I’m sorry, which I am, because divorce is never easy, especially when children are involved. However, I believe this to be a blessing in disguise. I remember reading some of your older posts, and I could sense your unhappiness. I know, because I too stayed with an abusive alcoholic husband who became irate when he was drunk. It should be a life no one ever has to live. Especially children.

    With that said…Wishing you all the best in your new life as a single independent strong woman. The world is your oyster! Enjoy and be well.

    • Don’t be sorry at all. I tried and he didn’t want to change. This past year the stress of his drinking is gone and I am the happiest I have been in years.
