Seems I am Constantly on the Move!

Well, we are finally moved. Still have a lot of things to move from the place I shared with the ex. Can't believe how much crap I have! Much of the stuff I am getting rid of. There are boxes that are now filled with tagged items I will sell at a yard sale. Sometimes I just want to set everything outside into a pile and ignite it! Ahhh...no problem. But, I am civil and will do what is right. I am adjusting to having my honey work second shift. I still miss him terribly, but it gets easier as each day passes. The time we do spend together is precious to both of us and we enjoy every minute of it. Once we are settled in we can do more with our free time. Gonna be a while still. My final hearing for my divorce is Monday! Should be a 15 minute deal and I am single again. My sweetie reminds me that I may be single, but I am his. This is a fact! My heart belongs to only him. Those of you who have known my journey know that I have been on quite a ride this past year. Good, bad and indifferent, it is my life. Everything happens for a reason. Keep the faith and all things are possible if you only believe.

Hi ElusiveButterfly, I haven't follow all of your journey, but it appears that you are now starting to sail into smooth waters. It does take some time to get to that point, but patience and perseverance eventually pays off. Moving is sometime a very emotional transition. I got divorced and I moved (two emotional whammies)into a house that I lived in with two children. I lived there many years. So, you can imagine all the crap I had to get rid of. Some I sold, some I donated, and some just got dumped. I moved all the way across the country, which was very emotional. Now I want to do it again, but I remember the entire journey, so I don't know if I am ready for that state of mind again. Anyhow, I am happy that your life is moving in the direction that you want it to. Your divorce, from your tone, seems to be a good thing. All that matters is that you are happy in your new life.

My Oh My I have missed a lot while away fromm myLot. I haven't gone anywhere but have not beenn well. I didn't realize you were going through divorce. You do sound happy now and that's what matters. It was a year june first I moved in my apartment but my ex still calls a lot. We're separated for life I will not allow him to put me throught the crap again. It is hard mind you and you know what I mean. Take care and good luck.

Like everyone else, I wish you well. I am more of the hard nosed practical person. Sell what you can and either give the rest to a local charity thrift shop, or if you want to know who you bless, offer it on freecycle and see their eyes glow. All the best wishes in your new life.

With everything moved I am starting to go through the items and systematically divide it between tag sale and Goodwill. The Goodwill has benefited immensely from my move!

You do not realize how much you have until you have to pack it and move it somewhere else. You don't know what to save and what to get rid of. So many memories are attached to our possessions. I hope that your new move will be a productive one. I wish you luck in the future and happiness too.

It sounds like you are making a great new start and you sound so positive which is really good considering you have been through so much. “Keep the faith and all things are possible if you only believe.” I agree with that very much, it would be so easy to lose the faith and give up on life but to keep going with the knowledge that good things will come is the only way to live; you’re proof of that! Enjoy your new life ElusiveButterfly!

I guess you could say I'm in a bit of the same position as you. For almost 3 years my marriage of 18 years started getting rough & no matter what I tried he refused to listen. CJ & I were ready to leave about 6 mos. ago but The Holy Spirit, through prayer told me to give it one more try. I really tried my best but nothing helped. Clint & I are now at my dad's & I'm trying to find work as a bus driver. We packed up the SUV I was given & took off from Illinois. It was an exciting trip with a few overheats in vehicle as we didn't have air conditioning but we made it. And now I'm in a small room with my 12 year old son. We've been here a little over a month & I had an interview this last tuesday to become a transit bus driver. Then today, my mom called from Oregon & told me she has to have heart surgery. Everything was going beautifully until she informed me of that. Now, I pray that I won't get a job so I can drive up to be with her for her surgery. God is good, isn't he? Good luck to you & yours. God Bless.

Hope your hearing went well. Wading through all the cr*p that I have accumulated is one of my biggest, silly fears. And it's all ahead of me. lol Best of luck with your new life!
