Thriving on my own

Whata can I say?  I'm almost there!  This week, I moved into my own little place, and I love it!  It's smaller and older than what we've been living in, but my and I are so excited about it and the potential that it holds.
ITS MY OWN PLACE!!!!!!!  YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!
Boxes still clutter the floor, the walls still need painted, the yard still need some cleaning...but in no time, it will no longer be just a house.  It will be our home.  A new fresh start to a beautiful life. 
 
For so long, we've lived 20 miles out in the country, far and remote from most civilization!  Now, we live not even a mile from my work, in the midst of playgrounds and neighborhood kids and barbeques...such a pleasant adjustment! 
 
Looking back, i believe my ex's affair was a blessing in disguise.  Life is even better than it was before, so new and fresh.  Absolutely beautiful. 
 
Yesterday, our divorce became official.  Was I sad?  As sad as I am to think back to a good friend's passing.  There was a time of sadness.  Now is a time for celebration.

Wow, texas, I didn\'t realize all this transpired in such a short time, considering the rest of us, and your journeys! You are one decisive woman, who knows what she wants, and goes after it!

Congrats on the final divorce! And I\'m super happy that you have such a healthy disposition on your new place. I\'m sure that you will hurry up and work hard, on making it very lovely, and homey, and comfortable. My gosh, I can\'t say \"kudos\" enough to you, or loud enough! I am truly so proud of you, you are terrific! Wow, what an inspiration to others here! You rock, and you keep going girl!
