Divorced - recovered and hoping to help.
I would have loved to do something like that. We were building a new house when I found out about his affair. Putting my efforts into a home that would not end up being our home seemed pointless. So I signed up for a volunteer job that was physical and very fulfilling.
Bottom line is that a healthy way to vent our frustrations is great. Running, painting, boxing, cleaning out the garage, whatever. Do it!
