Well I can't say I've been working on anything for Watcha Working on Wednesday, so I won't be participating again this week. Sorry Kim I really haven't been working on anything. LOL. I ran out of propane and am sitting in my house that is 52 degrees waiting on the plumber to hook up my natural gas. Yep that would also be my neighbor. He has been so nice through all this crap. He even emptied a dead mouse from one of my traps for me. He is my hero because I hate mice. YUCK!!!! He has been checking in on us and when my fridge and microwave stopped working a day ago he so kindly told me to check my fuse box. That was it the breaker had popped. Anyway, there are still nice guys out there I just didn't seem to have one of them. LOL.

I got asked by someone to go for coffee. We haven't talked since so who knows if it will happen. He too is divorced with a daughter. His wife left him basically the same way. So we thought we would get together for coffee. I have known him for a few years and he is so nice and would've done anything for his wife and daughter. He is now working 3 jobs so his ex can finish school and is paying for the house she is living in. So we'll see.

No luck on the job front yet or apartment hunting either. I need to make some calls today and also have a counselling session. He should be getting the letter from my attorney today so I expect to hear from him. We argued on Sunday when he dropped off my son. I told him that his girlfriend needed to stay out of our divorce. That it did not concern her. He told me he would not do that as he is not hiding anything from her and is having an open honest relationship. (Insert puking sound here) I'll be so glad when all the paperwork and red tape is done so I can go on and not deal with him except for with my son.

Alright I know I haven't been posting any pics and I apologize, but I don't have anything to take any of yet. I'm working on Christmas decorations, but they aren't done yet. I need to fill in with my greens and berries. Soon ladies soon before I have to tear it all down and move. LOL.

i cant wait to see what you are making for christmas.!
enjoy the holiday mary. don't let the anger and arguing drag you down. glad to know that you are out socializing, :) its good to get together with others that have been in the same place in life. a different view on things gives life a whole new hubby covering insurance on you now? the court can make him cover you if your job does not have it.i hate to see you have to move. especially to an apartment. how about a mobile home? have you applied for any type of housing assistnce? i am just throwing some ideas out there. i wouldnt move till i just had to...... this is a bad time of the year to have to move in the cold.
email if you need to talk.

Dont' worry Mary I don't think anyone is expecting you to be making anything. Just take care of yourself and your kids. Do you have any space heaters or electric blankets? I hope your not cold.

Hang in there...we are not looking for pictures as much as we are hoping to hear things are looking up for you. Put another sweater on and enjoy your decorating...

Hi Mary ~ yikes, that's cold! Hope they come and hook it up soon!

Hope you're feeling better!

Just wanted you to know that I'm still thinking of you and praying that everything will work out for a happy life for you and the children.

Hope that heat gets fixed real soon. We haven't started a fire all day and the low 60s are pretty chilly so I can only imagine how shivery you must be!

Looking forward to seeing your lovely Christmas decor!

Blessings & peace,

I read your post yesterday but didn't take the time to comment. I am sorry to hear that you still don't know what is/was wrong with you. Maybe it was just some fluke thing...our bodies can work in weird ways! I certainly hope it's nothing for your sake. You have enough going on right now.

I'm sorry about the ex and all. You can't exactly have an "open and honest" relationship that started as an affair. It just doesn't work that way. What is it with people? But you're right, your divorce isn't any of her concern. Not that he can't talk to her about it....she just doesn't need to butt her nose in.

There are nice and kind people out there and Mary, you will find that person! I felt really bad for you when you first announced your separation but honestly, if your parents and others are noticing that you're happier than you have been in years then that's a good thing! Give it time and hang in there.

Been there,done that,lost my home,too.I realize now,we had to leave to start a new life.So sorry.I am now remarried to an awesome man,have a beautiful daughter and a townhouse that I love,never thought I could,but from inside you'd never know it wasn't in the country.Trust the Lord,keep walking in the path He has you go.It will get better,live in the Word.You'll see your lives get better.They don't get that what's new will grow old,settle and they'll have new sets of problems.Don't walk in bitterness,it eats on you and your kids,find laughter,it's as a medicine.

I went thru a divorce when my girls where small. It was my choice,but let me tell you ,everything you do and say to your childrens dad will come back to haunt you. No matter what he has done to you ,he is their DAD ! When my ex would'nt pay his support,I would'nt let him see them.(and other things to get back at him) Finally it dawned on me,that I was'nt hurting him, I was hurting my girls. So I decided(for my girls ) If he could live with it,I could live without it.Then one day my youngest became a teen and decided on her own,that the support money he was'nt paying was rightfully hers and she ask me to do something about it. All the comments you make on your blog and to him in front of your children will bite you in the butt someday. It's not about you and him,not even the girlfriend. IT'S ABOUT YOUR KIDS !! BEEN THERE DONE THAT !! hope you and your kids the best.
