Hi all. :) Not sure if some of you remember me, but thought i'd pop in and update and check in on some of you and see how things are going. :)

I finally decided that I was DONE and in December asked STBX for a D. Woot! It will be final in about a week. YEAH!

He decided to leave his job here and move to Colorado with his girlfriend. Yep. I found out that the skank he supposedly had a "one night stand" with in 94/95 when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, he actually had at least a 2-3 year long steady relationship with, and they have been "off and on" since then!!! NINETEEN YEARS! Plus there were all the others as well... OY VEY!! I'm SO glad I finally got the guts to end it. What a douche.

I am moving to the Oregon Coast in about 2 weeks and am SO HAPPY!! Seriously - if I would have known how happy I was going to be without the asshat I would have done this a LONG time ago. I let fear control me. NO MORE.

The thrill of D''ing and getting away from a philandering, manipulative con-artist. I know it well Awesome lucky you with the new move. I predict a fabulous NB for you and can''t wait to hear about it.

Congrats lostinlv!

It's kind of bittersweet to have this new beginning.

I moved out of our marital home last summer and into a much smaller home and I am in the process of painting the interior of our home and planting a perennial garden.

One of the most enjoyable things for me is to pick my own color scheme for the interior and exterior!! I take my small pleasures where I can get them but I have to say I am so loving these "small" things.

Embrace your new life!!
