How was that for a two week teaser.
Here’s the deal. I have dropped off the face of the earth to almost everyone. I decided to move last May. I finally gave up everything, gave it to my ex and moved on. I picked up the kids and some of our things and decided to rent a place 20 minutes away. I love the area that I moved to and have wanted to come here for years.
Craig and I knew that we were going to get married. We just didn’t know when. We decided that it was either going to be summer 2012 or 2013. I didn’t want to go out and get a house while I had no idea what to expect from life. I wanted to get to a place where that I could afford on my own, be close to people that could help me and give myself some distance to start fresh where no one knew me.
However, in that move so many other things ended up suffering. My life got so busy that everything got set to the wayside. Really. I immediate went to working on getting my kids into their new school. We completely forewent the whole church thing and I took them to the old ward until the end of the summer. I had one friend in my new neighborhood and knew her neighbors. Other than that, nobody. Oh, did I mention that I moved to the absolute edge of the earth. As you are passing through Salt Lake on your way to Provo and look to the west to see those houses way up on the mountain and wonder who in the world lives there… I do. I actually love it.
The whole process of moving and getting settled, decided it was in everyone’s best interest to get married in 2012 (besides that fact that I love his guts,) and figuring out this whole new life, I somehow lost touch with not only reality, but the whole world. The mixing of families, the adjustments of kids, the school schedules (dang year round schedules,) medical craziness with all the kids, holidays, honeymoon, Christmas, sickness, shingles (YES!!! SHINGLES!!!!!!!) about took its toll on me.
While trying to keep my head above water and not strangle myself or the kids, I have managed to offend a lot of people. I am terrible at returning phone calls and emails. I have had major mishaps with the stupid phone that I spent a small fortune on and have a hard time getting texts. I didn’t get all of the wedding invites out that were supposed to get out. How do you recover from that. I know that a lot of people just understand, but a lot don’t. I have managed to hurt feelings and annoy the living heck out of people.
So, with this post, I am asking forgiveness for those that I have offended and ask, if you would allow me, to just pick up from here and let me start afresh. It would really help me out. That way I can really just regain my composure in the human race and pick up where I left off.
Thanks for being there for me 🙂
