It's Happening

  1. Well, he's going. He came home last night from a business trip and we talked - a bit - he's surprised at how calm and matter-of-fact I am. Anyway, he slept here last night, but in another room and he's off today to find an apartment to move into in about a month - he'll be traveling between now and then - and to book a hotel room for the weekends he is home - starting tonight!

    It's so weird - you would think I'd be crying or something, but I'm just so relieved that it is over and I can move on. Maybe at some point it will hit me and I'll be crushed but I can't see it right now - It's like when they told me I had MS - I was more relieved and happy they found a problem and I wasn't crazy!

    We do have to tell our youngest son tonight - he's 7. The older two know and are handling it ok - but the little guy will be harder.

    I think we're going to be ok! :spin:

    You guys are great! It's unbelieveable how I can find so much support from people I don't really know well - and some I do (Karen )

    I started crying after reading all your posts - first time I've cried through all this - guess I needed to get it out .

    Thanks for your support, hugs, wishes, encouragement, prayers, advice . . . . It is truly touching and is really helping me to stay strong and hold my ground!

    I'll keep you posted.
