The End... And a New Beginning

Today is the 3rd anniversary of when my divorce was filed, so I'm checking in here.  I'm sure that all 14 of my followers have been wondering what's going on since I simply haven't been around.  You'll be happy to know that I've been moving on, making new friends, and finding new activities to keep me busy.

The angst of dealing with a narcissist has mostly dissipated since I don't have any regular dealings with my ex-husband any more.  If I recall correctly, the last time he saw the boys was in May.  

After a great deal of thought, I have decided that it's time to formally end writing on this blog and begin a new one.  I'm still trying to get up to speed with the technical side of things, but my new blog is called The New Elizabeth.  I'll be back to post a link once I get the blog up and running.

Thanks for reading and following along in my journey.

Happy Divorce-aversary to Me!

I'm still alive. Really.

Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of my divorce. They (whoever they are), say that the first year is always the hardest after a major life change. I mostly agree with them. I feel like I've been marking time waiting for this year to end.

I was anticipating the end of the first year with great joy. I'm so happy to be free of my ex-husband. But on the day before the divorce-aversary I ended up feeling really, really sad.

When I got married I expected it to end when one of us died. I wanted to be the little old lady walking hand-in-hand with a little old man and smiling at the antics of our great-grandchildren.

It will never happen.

My life is not what I planned. I know that God isn't surprised, but I sure am.

How did I "celebrate" my divorce-aversary? This year I treated myself to a spa day. I had a facial AND a massage AND a salt scrub seaweed mud bath thingy. I felt totally pampered. It was a good day after all.
