Thanks! He’s already agreed in theory to all of the paperwork, he just hasn’t been around on a day when we could find a notary (he’s a long distance truck driver). He has to be back in town on a Monday in a few weeks, so he’s committed to signing everything then.
Thank you! It was very hard, and scary, and icky, but having done it is such a weight off!
This is definitely good change for me.
It’s been going about as well as I think it could have gone. He tried some emotionally manipulative shit in a last ditch effort, but because I had been thinking and planning for so long, it didn’t make a dent. I knew what I wanted and once my mind was made up, that was that. There weren’t any arguments about who got…
We did not fucking vote these people into office. Stacey Abrams had the governorship stolen from her through sustained, coordinated voter suppression efforts.
The sweet sugar face on the left is Ellie. I adopted her in 2006, while I was still in grad school. It was just the two of us for a long time.
Layla and Charlie are over this rain.
This is what I have - https://www.underworks.com/womens-ultra-light-cotton-spandex-compression-tank. I’m a size 18-20ish and have the XL.
The best thing I ever found was a cotton-blend compression tank top. It basically takes the sports bra compression all the way down past my belly to keep it from bouncing around. Even the highest-waisted tights roll down to below the belly, but I never work out without my undershirt. I’ve had it for years, but let me…
Moving forward is definitely better.
Super late to this, but I’m still around. Mostly just reading. Finally sucked it up and told my husband I want a divorce after too many years of pretending things were ok or were going to get better.
The Schipperke won its group! Ellie approves
I have been on Lexapro for a few years now and it’s been great for me. It doesn’t make me not have anxiety, but it makes me able to take a step back and recognize it for what it is.
Ellie, Layla, and Charlie are not quite sure what all the excitement is about, but they will try to look at the camera for a treat.
I one-starred a driver on Lyft after he drove the wrong way down a one-way and I got a follow-up text from someone at Lyft that I was being refunded, would not be matched with that driver again, and offering a phone call if I wanted to provide a more detailed complaint.
I resisted going on anti-anxiety meds for the longest times, until one day I ended up in my GP’s office just sobbing. I’ve been on Lexapro for a few years now and it’s been amazing. I think the biggest thing it let me do was step back and realize that my anxious thoughts were just anxious thoughts and I didn’t have to…
OMG I have to try that! I am trying low-ish carb, but I already adore roasted broccoli - how much better with cheesy goodness!
Do you know about Raven & Woodhouse?
Not a project, but I get to meet my brand new niece this weekend! She was a week old yesterday :)
Please tell me more about this cyst-busting system!! Every few months I get a horrible one on my chin that hurts and then leaves a mark for what feels like forever!
