There is a big change happening at Up Mountain, one that’s been in progress for quite some time, but is finally happening: Pirate-Husband is moving out. We’ve had a good run together, but it’s time for both of us to move on. It’s a bittersweet thing for us, but we’d rather end the marriage so that we can be friends, instead of hanging on and growing more and more resentful of each other.
…so we bought lottery tickets, because winning the Mega Millions would solve our remaining problems. :)
I’m looking at this as an opportunity. I’ve never lived on my own – I went from my parents’ house to university to an apartment with him – and I’m excited for the chance to do everything my own way. Over the past few years I’ve been putting quite a bit of effort into remaking myself to become the person I really want to be, and this is the final stage. When I look back on it, I want to be proud of what I see.
April is going to be a big month for me. I work well with schedules, so I want to get myself into a healthy routine of exercise, keeping the house clean, and working on my creative projects.
Here’s to new beginnings!
