On my FB feed, a photo from 6 years ago came up. It was a bullfighter I was painting when I found out my xh was cheating. My jaw dropped ... it’s been six years, now.
This site helped me not loose my mind at that time. I will always remember that.

I’d like to report that I’m back to “normal”, but I’m not. Thoughts of the destruction of my family still get to me sometimes. Get me way too much for 6 years later....
But I used that sadness to motivate me to create. Painting my corgi, then home repair. My 3 year old microwave needed replacement 🤨, I, of course want the $800 KitchenAid low profile....found one on FB marketplace, new - talked him down to $250.00. About an hour away, strapped the corgi in her puppy seat and away we went.... I can’t believe the luck.
Dig around basement and found leftover backsplash tile from 3 years ago. Will need to extend up...
Next project on deck.

$600 pothole booooooooooo. Next day phone broke, too,😳. No tax refund for this gal. (Thumbs pointing back at myself). BUT good luck, Verizon said it was faulty, got 100% Insurence replacement phone! This adulting stuff is getting annoying.

Maybe things bothered me because I heard sad old life news...
X MIL passed. I heard from kids. They still are NC with dipstick father... although Hawai’i daughter sent the most beautiful, tropical arrangement for her viewing. MIL never bothered with my kids- I thought that was very generous of her (them) She included me on card 😆. I’ll serve a few in purgatory for laughing at that.

My student trip to Italy is getting cancelled, due to virus. How very sad for the world. Here we sit completely unprepared in the USA. It is going to be bad I think.

So, again, this adulting is not the greatest, but all I can recommend is for everyone to keep swinging!

Aloha WUD,

Thanks for the update. It's a constant amazement on how economical you have been with your challenges for your home and around. Very proud of you.

It pays that you are vigilant in seeking your solutions. I think we can all learn a lesson from this instead of letting these obstacles get us down. Thanks!!!

Your daughter is a good person to go that extra mile and send an arrangement for her grandmother's funeral. I did that for my FIL in Jan when son and Wst went to CA. Only heard from 2 of the 10 children about it. That's ok, though I sent it from my heart. How it was received is on them. I'm ok.

I was going to post this on the Other Topics thread of mine but I thought I'd send this to you........

Where I live, there are rainbows

Yesterday, this song made me cry because I miss my mom and a friend's dad is dying. Today this same song makes me smile, thinking of you. smile

Enjoy!
Orchid

Hard to believe it really has been that long!

I love reading your updates because you are so descriptive and share the humour that happens in life. I appreciate your DD including you on the card too. wink

You've got good kids and you raised them well. I'm proud of you (and them) for staying NC.

Keep moving forward on the path of healing. Your Ex dragged you through the muck and back and you survived. Hugs.
