Still around..

Hi everyone. Realized today while chatting briefly with Tae that I haven't checked in here in what seems like forever.


I am around and doing well for the most part. Spent December packing and moving and unpacking. We finally have our own space. One step forward. I am waiting on the ortho to schedule my surgery for my wrist. Delayed it because of the move which I basically had to do on my own while S worked. But moving forward with that now.

Boys are doing as best as they can. Step-mom is moving out next week and the divorce, I think, is in filing status. DS1 wants to move out and divorce himself from the whole situation there, but I've convinced him to stick it out until at least the end of this school year. And I've told the ex I have no intention of separating the boys, so I'm hoping to discuss reasonably with the ex the situation and to avoid the whole drawn out court process if possible. With the boys, we're getting one of the dogs too. Her name is Gigi and she's a Yorkie. Sweet little thing. She spent a week of winter break here with the boys.

These lovely weather fronts that move in and out almost every other day are wreaking havok on my anxiety and wrist and the rest of my other joints. Gotta love mother nature. Hope all of you are well!

You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

Quite honestly, it could have arrived and I just overlooked it. We'd only been in the house a little more than a week by Christmas and I was busting butt to make things acceptable so we could have the boys. I'm still finding mail that we got that week. I am sure it is here somewhere.
