All for the greater good

I took a well deserved break from my site.

Trying to get used to living in Arizona.

Work has been crazy.

My kids have been taking a larger chunk of my time with all their homework. Their bickering truly gets on my last nerve too.

But the main reason for my absence?

I'm getting a divorce.

Actually, I'm at the final stage. The papers are with the court and all they need is to have the judge sign off on them. And then it'll be done.

This isn't something I wanted. But a divorce is what is best for our family. For our kids. For me.

My soon-to-be ex-husband moved out this weekend. Actually, he already moved everything a few weeks earlier when the kids and I were out. All he had to do was pack the rest of his clothes. He actually picked up the kids on Friday. A few weeks ago when he was prepping his stuff to move, I suggested that he take the kids the weekend that he officially moved out. He looked at me like I was crazy. I explained that I thought it would be a good idea for them to go with him so that they could "set up" their rooms (which would keep them busy). It would also give them the opportunity to ask him any questions that were on their minds without me being around. He finally agreed after a few days.

So this is my first weekend alone. It's a strange feeling to be in this house all alone. But I'll have to get used to it. This is my new life!
