Entering week four. I had a productive week. Insurance and cable are handled. We have exactly zero common assets or liabilities. I've been working a lot, which is good.
It's quiet here. I'm settling in and comfortable. I feel less need to be on the phone or reaching out as I adjust to being by myself. I can finally totally and completely focus on long term. Friends ask what my plans are and when and I tell them whatever I want and whenever I want to do it. It's an amazing feeling. I did some Christmas cards yesterday and as I searched my old text messages for addresses I was struck by how far I've come on my journey. It was a bit of a revelation to me, in a good way. I have the opportunity to travel the last two weeks of the year. I'm excited. Good times ahead. STBX owes me some money and I'll get it. We have plans to meet and get half next Monday. I dread her changing her mind. I doubt it will happen but the thought occurs to me occasionally. I use the old texts and the memories of her walking out the door to go to him as fuel to propel myself away from her and the lies and betrayal.
Sorry so rambley. I'm on my first beer, I promise.
