Lettuce and I are no more. I am still sad about this because I miss being married. I miss having someone there for me, someone to share things with, someone who loves me.
Then I remember that my marriage wasn't like that.
There were good times, for sure. And beautiful children. But it was hard and ugly and painful. And at the end of the day, I made the choice that had to be made for my babies. And I survived.
Since then, I have had some other changes. For one, I finally finished that Masters I started so many years ago. It was hard but rewarding. Literally. My pay grade went up and I am [almost] middle class. I have some big plans coming up but I don't want to jinx them by saying to much. Know that this is only the beginning.
I also lost a LOT of weight. Like more than 50 pounds. "Pics or it didn't happen," you say? Well alrighty then.
I'm teaching 4th grade for the pasts 3 years. It is amazing and I love it. My kids are bonkers so we all get along. I won't say it's always fun but the good outweighs the bad, for sure.
Next up, the Astronaut...
