I think today is the day that I am divorced, not quite sure. I signed the papers and feel it is time to celebrate. 5 years of a very different life for me. I am ready to get back to my normal life. If he signs papers today, it will either be filed in the courts today or this coming Tuesday.
I now live in downtown Seattle in a high-rise apartment and living where I should have been living for the past 7 years, instead of living in a rural area with someone that I don't quite know how I ended up with. Unfortunately, I was taken to the cleaners. I guess this is what happens in this state and my attorney friend thinks I did okay. He at least didn't take any of my retirement which he kept threatening me that he was going to do. I married someone who loved to spend my money and I felt like a hamster on a wheel trying to keep up with the bills. I also didn't like financing an adult child as he sat and watched movies all day long after sleeping until noon. I was up at 4:30 getting ready for work, and would leave both the husband and his son sleeping and when I arrived home after working 10 hours and a 2 hour commute, they were home watching movies......I am stuck paying half of his $14,000 Visa that was in his name and I had no connection to. I guess I have to pay for my mistake and that is what I am doing. I am ready for my new life.
So here I am, in my cute little apartment, drinking Vodka tonics and writing to a blog that I haven't written on in a few months.
I have been sewing though. I made a quilt for my new place. Pictures soon....
