Hi everyone - time to introduce myself. My D was final on 16 Dec 2013. I have spent most of my time on SI at the LTA thread as I discovered WW two plus year A in June 2011.
The year prior to DDay was awful - mistreatment, disrespect, and apathy. The two years post DDay trying to R were hard, very hard. Depression (mine) and lack of overt effort to make amends (hers). And then followed by six months of working out the detils of the D to make the best of things for our kids, her and I.
I have a contract on a condo that allows me to literally walk to work and close in January 2014. This will greatly improve my life as I currently use public transportation (not always timely or reliable) as I do not drive due to vision loss. My ex WW has the option to stay in our marital home until my youngest graduates from high school and I am very glad that I can do this for my DS. I hope my ex WW takes advantage of this and does not rush to downsize before then. (She had several home purchase contracts that fell apart for various reasons and I was going to refinance and stay in the marital home. Our settlement allows her to stay there with my equity due when the home is sold(.
As is true with others here on SI, my journey has been long, difficult and is continuing. I have come along way since DDay and am looking forward to my continuing progress and a wonderful 2014. I am looking forward to enjoying my new home on SI, New beginnings, and my new home in January.
Be safe! Be happy! Be healthy! Live with ease!
