Catching Up

Well I knew I would not be real good about posting a lot so no surprise it has been almost three months since my last post. Life has been moving along pretty normal like....

At work we all had to take a 10% pay cut the beginning of February. They also laid off, or rather, re-configured, in such a way that about 30 other people no longer work there. I can't complain about the pay cut as at least I still have a job.

On the home front, the divorce is almost final. Everything is signed and it's up to the judge now to sign and file the papers. This definitely is not how I wanted things to go and I never imagined I would get a divorce. It's still very surreal and I actually find it difficult to refer to my ex as my ex-husband. I do find that life at home has gotten more peaceful and less stressful without him in the house. The kids are handling it better than I expected. Unfortunately, with the divorce and all, we have to sell the house and we are having to go with a short sale. It is all very tedious and time consuming. The kids are not looking forward to moving out of the house either. I did already get an offer on it though so hopefully that will go through and then I can get my finances straightened out.

The big news recently.....my oldest just got her driver's permit!!!
