I got rid of an anchor in my life and I am moving down the waters freely now. I broke up with my controlling boyfriend last week and never would I thought that I'd be ever so content. I have been flaring up less this passed weekend. My new place is great. My roommates are friendly, fun, laid back and just plain awesome. We had fun going out on the town saturday night. This is the life that I miss...
As most of you already know, I gave up sweets for Lent. The dirty half-dozen--cookies, cake, pie, candy, donuts, and ice cream. Now that Lent is over, I must be careful not to start to indulge in sweets too frequently. Will aim for one normal portion once a week.
Thanks for your support. Love to All.
xo JudyOur 3rd Dday anniversary (Discovery day that my husband found out about my affair) and our 32nd wedding anniversary are only 4 days apart. Sunday was our Dday anniversary and Thursday is my wedding anniversary. We spent this last weekend at a bed and breakfast in honor of both. It was a wonderful weekend. There is nothing like spending all that quality time focused on each...

Was driving back after Christmas and pulled into a Flying J on the way home when the gas light came on.
You may not know this, but Flying J always has the cheapest gas in my state. It is also a truck stop I noticed, complete with showers adjacent to the bathrooms, but I digress.
They had a bin of CDs near the register and I couldn't help myself. I had an hour left to go and I was bored and needed...
I'm really doing okay. I really am. I still have so many things to figure out, like where to live, how to make money- you know the hard stuff. But I am so much better just by not being with him.
This feeling I've had the past 2 days is freedom. The huge weight of his control over me is lifting. I can come & go as I like. I can sleep & eat as I like. :)
I have applied for an apartment that...
I am happy & I am sad. I saw him on 3 separate occasions this week. A good friend of ours died so we were both around the family and at the funeral. It was weird and uncomfortable being around each other in the same group of people that we were always together with. We were like doing some kind of dance, slipping back in forth from acting like a couple to acting like mere acquaintances. And t...
I've changed my profile pic to this saying, "Never run back to what broke you." That is my job now.
I've been feeling down because I haven't gotten a place, job, way of living figured out yet. It's been one month since I left and I am anxious to get my life back together.
But my number one job right now is to stay away, and I'm doing it. I will work on the rest, but every day I am not in that rel...
I have .moved into my apartment and yes! I have internet now. It has been a long week putting this place together & I am still not done, but I think I have found a new home. It is starting to feel like "my place". My daughters & their mates, plus the grandson came over for dinner last night & I managed to find something that all 4 picky eaters liked. It was nice, relaxing and fu...
Day 3 - My car and here's why: It runs.
One of my favorite songs by Neil Young could really be a tribute to my 2006 Hyundai.
Here are the lyrics:
"Long May You Run"
We've been through
some things together
With trunks of memories
still to come
We found things to do
in stormy weather
Long may you run.
This sums it up.
Day 4 - My job and here's why. It pays my bills and even funds (somew...
