Loaded and Ready

The computer and other electronic stuff is traveling in my friend's car with me while a friend drives the UHaul that tows my car. Yeah, I'm chicken.

Not too chicken to drive the 17' ft. UHaul towing my car and unhook the whole shebang with a neighbor's help. Ummm, the tow dolly weighs more than 500 lbs and this afternoon I was pulling it and stay-at-home mom neighbor was pushing it from the street into the yard.

Strong, independent women...yes we are. Sore too. The house is pretty bare and all our things save a few are loaded in a truck ready to be taken anywhere.

Tomorrow, a new life begins. Or should I say repurposed life? Everything is going well, much better than I deserve and thought it would. The only uncertain thing is all the legal mumbo-jumbo and how much child support should be and if alimony should be paid...yada, yada, yada. Where's the EASY button?

The kids & I are moving next week to my parents' house. Dh and I are getting a divorce and have been separated since February 1st. I haven't been able to write about it and probably will never be able to write about the details that led to these events. I'm sorry for my silence but it has been necessary to prevent from sharing too much while we are still going through the legal issues.

Anyways, we're moving. Beginning a new life, unfortunately in the fall the kids will be going to school, Danny to either an elementary school program for pre-kindergarten or individual preschool and Camille will either be in 3rd or 4th grade depending on well she tests on a standardized test in May. I will begin a new job April 5th, a full-time position with benefits.

I will be afterschooling as much as I can, I can sit here and be idealistic and scheme all the wonderful things we'll be doing but I've learned recently that you just do what you can do, when you can do it. I've put off college for myself until Fall, I was supposed to start April 6th but goodness, I can't do everything! Lol.

I will continue blogging about our adventures, we'll probably be homeschooling through the summer to help Camille be ready for public school in the fall but the blog will be more about what we do on excursions and trials we face rather than about the nitty-gritty of homeschooling. I doubt there will be anymore schedules aligning curricula and curricula reviews. I cannot believe how many books I've sold in the last month or donated to others.

I have plenty to say about my hopes for us but I'm not willing to expand on that until we have settled into our new life that is quickly approaching. I have solid goals for attaining a Bachelor's of Science- Business Administration degree and getting us on solid footing financially. Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover has been such a blessing!

I'll blog again when I can.
