After a year and a half, I've decided to revive the blog.
What an up and down journey it's been. If you're new to my blog, or need to catch up, just go back and read the old posts at the bottom of the page.
Some things since my last post are still the same, yet SO many things have changed.
First off, I'm in a MUCH better place emotionally than I was when I left off. Those were dark days indeed back then. It took a bit, and some help from a few fantastic friends, but I am on the other side. I'm happy again. I'm free from the heavy burden of guilt I put on myself. The last 7 or 8 months have been some of the best of my life. Those who have helped know who they are, as I've certainly told them how I feel.
Second, I feel better physically. I stopped drinking sodas last year for lent. I'm not Catholic, but it was a good excuse to drop something that's not healthy. This year, it was energy drinks. Next up, I STILL need to eat better. I've gotten back into walking almost every day. My schedule is pretty full, but I find time when I can.
Third, my kid Nick (whom I like to call "the boy") is turning into a remarkable child. He's getting ready to start pre-k. He's very smart (which I like to thank I played a huge part in). He's rounding into quite the hitter. As he should. I've been pitching him balls to hit since he could hold a plastic bat. I look forward to seeing who he becomes............
My dating life has gotten better, at times it's gotten very good. I've been lucky to have a few incredible women in my life. Some old friends, some new. It's just been good to be in a place where I can let myself get into things. To not be wrapped up in my head over past mistakes. To smile again.
There's more to report, maybe another time. On to the things that have pretty much stayed the same......
The divorce has gone NOWHERE! We went to mediation last year, and suddenly she wanted EVERYTHING. She wanted the house (me paying for it), she wanted child support (which I have no problem with) AND she wanted spousal support. Instead of being fair, selling the house and splitting the money (which I DON'T have to do), she wants to be a pain. So, it's been a year of butting heads. I'm trying my hardest to just get it in front of a judge and let the chips falls where they may. It's hard to be around her. I want to punch her in the face.......HARD. And repeatedly.
My work situation is pretty much the same. Still working all the friggin time, trying to keep the bills paid. At least I don't have any car payments to worry about!
So, you're caught up a bit. I probably won't post everyday. I will when there's something I want to share. Be it something I read, a movie I've seen, some music to share, or something in the news I feel the need to talk about.
2012 is most surely kicking 2011's ass! I hope it continues..........
