I made a big change in my life today. I attended church this morning for the first time in years. It was a bit awkward, but I made it through. The worst part for me was that after I took my boys to their classrooms I asked someone where I would attend a study class. I was walked to the young married room. I really didn't know what to say. The thought of walking into that classroom was knee buckling. I just quietly leaned over to my new "friend" and told him that I'd rather not go into that classroom. I'm going through a divorce, and I wouldn't feel comfortable. He just put his arm around me and said I could attend his class. That was very comforting, but it made me sad to have to say it. All in all, I enjoyed myself though. My oldest son is having a serious issue with us attending church. I don't quite understand where this is coming from. I have a few good ideas though. He is feeling betrayed by God. He was completely excited about going until we got there. He attended sunday school and started giving me attitude when I told him we were staying for services. I had to keep getting onto him all through the service for "acting out". I tried to address this with him when we got home, but he just got angry and went to his room. He later made a comment to his brother about "believers" not being able to sit on his bed. This makes me sad. He used to have so much faith. A lot of it has to do with the things he has experienced in his life. A grandfather and step-father passing, a mother that doesn't have much to do with him, and now he is faced with our seperation. He looked at his step-mother like she was his own mom. He is having serious abandonment issues with her leaving. He went through a spell of not wanting anything to do with her after she left. I'm also afraid he is going to have serious relationship issues in his future. What do I do???

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
